I think the record player you have picked would be fine. 

For my niece’s first birthday I got her a LeapFrog “My Pal Violet” which she really liked it. (There’s also a green version named Scout.) It’s a stuffed dog that talks, says her name, and plays games.  It requires some basic computer set up though, just to keep in mind.

I think that’s a great gift. My parents got one for my DD’s first birthday. Lol it’s not until Nov, so I can’t say how much she plays with it.

If you scroll down, there is a choking hazard on this toy due to small parts.  Not recomended for children under three.    I think that toy also takes better fine motor control than you will get out of a 1 year old.

Outfits seem to be a big go to for one year olds (as at that age they have grown out of everything given to them for showers)   We gave our nephew blocks and a drum thing that he could beat on (and now his sister does as well) Board books is another go to for us.

I’m always a big fan of children’s books for a kid’s birthday.

I prefer books for children’s birthday gifts. They are inundated with toys. It’s never too early to help ensure they have a love of reading.

I am going to make it 3 times… I also always give books for a kid that young.  I pick my favourites (usually Munsch) and I’ll write a little note in the cover of one of them for the child.

CityBearBride:  We got our friend’s kid a Hugo Boss shirt and Timberland shoes; cost about £80/$130 in the sale and with a staff discount. Our reasoning was they have everything they need already, a day, as he’s a first grandchild, he has every toy etc under the sun; I felt it wwould be hard to get something he didn’t have already. So, we decided to get something a bit ‘crazy’ and ‘fun’ that his parents would love but never be able to justify buying themselves. They absolutely loved the gift and he’s worn both items load

I just had my baby’s firt birthday and besides what we got him, he got some pretty cool stuff.  He loves this thing so much:


Even my older kids love playing with it.

Also he loves this too:


He has a few smaller toys he loves too like a few learning toys and activity blocks.
