My son will be one in a few weeks. He hasn't been interested in the toys he has for about a month now. To my complete delight he is very into books right now, but we have plenty.
My mother is asking what she can give him for his birthday and I am thinking about giving him a gift, too. I might buy an amber teething necklace, but if I decide to get a toy, too what would you recommend?
He has a few Haba characters - the frog, fish and duck, a pull-toy which he has yet to use b/c he doesn't walk, a classical music playing cube, rainbow bead shakers, Eebee doll, little Elegant Baby animals and vehicles, wooden cars.
I saw mentions of "play silks" in an old thread here and in a catalog. What do you think of those for a one year old?
Should he have some wooden fruit or bowls or something?
Summer is coming so we spend our days at the harbor and in the park where he won't be using toys.
I want him to learn to do some playing on his own. What do you recommend for at home?
