Friday Four: Toys for 1 Year Olds
So, it is going to be hard to limit this post to four things! Will literally likes ALL of toys so this isn’t necessarily a “favorites” list. Lets just say these toys he goes to play with over and over and over and over. See if you notice anything about this list in this age of technology!
Will has this exact toy and he LOVES it. He now has the motor skills to stack the cups with a little help and of course the most fun part is knocking it over! He also uses the larger cups to haul other toys all over the house and he likes the way his voice sounds when he yells into them. All around a great toy!
Will got a wagon for Christmas and I think he would sleep in it if we let him. He LOVES his little red wagon. We have gone around and around our living room, up and down the hallway and around our neighborhood on the warm days! He also likes to push the wagon around himself! And of course he likes to put stuff in it, take stuff out, put stuff in it, take stuff out. I like our radio flyer one – it is very easy to steer, has two seats that pop-up, seat belts (in case you have a wiggler), and the look is classic.
Will loves any and every kind of ball. We have basketballs, squishy balls, dog bals, plastic balls, bouncy balls, etc. He is now tall enough to dunk his basketballs in the goal, he likes to throw PepperAnn her balls, he likes to put the plastic balls in the skee ball game, he likes to kick balls and generally walks around with at least 1 kind of ball in his hand!
Will also likes all kinds of cars. He got these K’s Kids cars for Christmas and they are a lot of fun. They have soft tops and speed across the floor when you pull them back. He also has Little People cars that he zooms around, a school bus that reves up, a fire truck and a big 18 wheeler.
Well, did you notice it? None of the toys that Will chooses again and again are electronic. I think that’s interesting! My friend Elaine calles them “one hit wonders” because they only do one thing and don’t lend to imagination. So, for now I am happy that Will is not addicted to electronics because I know that will happen soon enough! Who knows, I may have a future “gamer” sleeping upstairs!
