Harvest will be one in July and I am trying to think of a nice toy to buy him for his birthday. Any ideas?

We just got Quinn who tunred one APril 22 the Melissa and Doug Alligator Clacker Walker......he LOVES IT! We got it on eBay at a toy store for $25 shipped I think....let me see if I can find a link.....if we could have afforded more I still would have gotten that and maybe a new book or 2.....

DS turned one 2 weeks ago and we got some great toys! He is really loving the bead maze (like in Dr.'s offices...metal "tracks" and wood beads that travel up/down and aroud), some wooden blocks (he does lots of in/out play with the box they came in...and experiments with shoving them under couch cushions, etc..), board books- he looks at his farm animal book ALL OF THE TIME along with a book that has many pictures of babies! My mom got him a cloth-stuffed globe that he's using to practice throwing and catching.....hmm I know there's more, I'll be back later!

Off topic:

DD didn't use her walker as much as I'd thought she might as it went too fast for her. Now at 2 1/2 she loves it, it becomes a dolls pram, shopping trolley and various other things. Definatly a toy worth having.

She's also enjoyed a wooden push along on a stick, shape sorter and wooden puzzles.

Her grandparents got her a lovely set of wooden blocks for her first birthday. It's taken her a while to get into them but they get lots of use now too.

dd just turned one and I got her a baby doll. She's obsessed with babies so she likes it. I also got her some books with photographs of animals and some magnets for the fridge for her to play with. She loves the magnets.

My son loved pushing around anything on wheels.... trains, cars, corn popper toy.... okay he still loves that.

We also always give at least one book for every birthday and Christmas
