I am wondering what you all would suggest I get my one yearold for the holidays. Her first birthday is right after Christmas as well... I have gotten a bunch of books so far, a wooden animal you pull that has wheels and then some wooden blocks.. Not sure what else. I am trying to make a wish list on amazon for my parents as well for her (their request..) We do use some plastic toys, but prefer wood. Any suggestions welcome!!

Haba discovery blocks, wooden pull toys are always great.<br>
BAsic square blocks, it's a nice small shape for their hands<br>
I like haba pacifier/toy chains<br>
Teddy bear made from Alpaca wool<br>
small hand holdable cars... for girl/or boy<br>
wool felt balls! these are great for rolling, throwing etc.

I personally have never gotten gifts for any of my children before maybe 3 or 4 years old <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:. They don't know if they got anything or not so I would rather spend the money on something that we need.<br><br>
Having said that I do understand about grandparents. There is a website-I forgot what it is but you could google "wooden toys" and they have age appropriate toys for kids and they are all wooden. Some of them seem rather silly but some looked really cool. It seems they were a little pricey though. I don't know what area you are in but around here we have a chain store called "Once Upon a Child". It's a used babies/kids clothing store but in the back there is a toy section with some really cool, new, affordable, wooden toys....

Don't forget to consider toys that will be age appropriate at around 2 years old too...that way, when you child is nearing 1.5-2 years old, you can pull out some toys for that age. We also don't really buy for the kids for bday or Christmas because they get so much from other people. We save the money and get them what they need throughout the year. At this age, they don't even notice.
