    Top Toys to Keep Play Neat   


     ALEX Jr. My Busy Town Wooden Activity Cube

    Hape Country Critters Wooden Activity Center Play Cube for Toddlers
    If you like a tidy home and content One-year-old toddlers like I did with my twin boys, Learning/Activity Centers like this Wooden Activity Cube by ALEX Jr. Toys or Hape's Country Critters Activity Play Cube are total fan-tab-u-lo-so!

    The units are stationary, can't be knocked over (ideal if you have stairs), and heavy enough to support babies and toddlers on up to preschool. 

    And all while the play pieces stay stuck to the cube! Nothing's worse than stepping on a plastic "brick" while barefoot--a real pain in the arch! I love the 5-sided play surfaces to keep non-walkers and 'standers'' hands busy while their brains are busy learning.

    The One-Year-Old Boy & Those Milestones:

    While the milestones are important, they're only guideline, another reference to give us parents a general idea of what we might expect. 

    Every child is different and development of a one-year-old boy or girl can be quite varied from the 'norm.' 

    Gifts that are adjustable and encouraging, but don't insist on a given skill and/or set size, are best for your one-year-old boy.


    Little Tikes TotSports Easy Hit Golf Set + 3 balls + 2 clubs

    Little Tikes Toddler Golf Set

    In my experience with three boys, I witnessed one boy matching those guidelines very predictably while my other two sons had varying degrees of adeptness. 

    If you're really concerned about your 1-year-old, do consult a good pediatrician, but most times it's a matter of individuality that makes your growing toddler truly the unique individual he or she is--and always will be.
