Best Toy for 1 Year Old UK
Congratulations on surviving the first year with the diaper changes and 3 am crying sessions! Here are some of the best toys for 1-year-olds so mommy and daddy can sleep for 10 minutes. Jokes aside, tiny humans are a blessing and a wonderful addition to any family, these toys are designed to not only entertain but also slightly educate your 1-year-old.
We’ve carefully selected the best toys for 1-year-olds for this list. We made sure the toys didn’t have overly sharp edges and can’t be easily swallowed. Of course, some toys will require you to keep an eye on the baby. We all know how creative the toddlers can be when it comes to doing something they are not supposed to do.
The best toys for 1-year-olds are very diverse and therefore we are not placing them in any order. We urge you to take a look at the whole list before making a final decision. Some toys are highly affordable so you can get multiple toys in your budget as well.
The Meowbaby Soft Foam Blocks is a physical activity playset designed to enhance movement. The set is made out of non-toxic materials so your child can safely bite it if they want. And we know, the child will bite it at some point.
The Meowbaby Soft Foam Blocks is available in two different colors; light grey and pink. There are 5 pieces in the set and all of them have a different shape. The toy is soft to the touch as it is made out of foam. You don’t have to worry about your kid banging their head on the ramp either.
The polyurethane foam is covered with a removable cover. This means any “accidents” can easily be washed with this set. You can even machine wash the covers if you want. We like the ball pit foam piece, while it doesn’t come with balls included, it is a great way to make the kid happy. Overall, the Meowbaby Soft Foam Blocks is a fun toy for a 1-year-old baby which will not only enhance their imagination but also encourage movement. If you are looking for toys for older years look at our guide on toys for 2 year old’s.
- Made out of a soft foam
- Cover is removable
- The ball pit is a cool addition
A play tent you can prop up anytime and anywhere? That does sound like a great toy! I know I’d love it if I were a kid again. To be fair, I’d love it right now too but unfortunately, I probably won’t fit inside one. The Heirao Kid Play Tent is a great toy to have simply because of how excited it makes babies.
The Heirao Kid Play Tent is completely safe and has proper ventilation inside. Blanket forts are nice but you have to prop an exhaust fan in them and you never know when a baby is going to mess with that. This great tent allows the baby to feel secure while inside all the while protecting them from outside elements.
You can even prop the tent outside in your lawn and the baby will have a great time. The tent is large enough to have two babies inside too, so siblings can have family fun. The tent is made from good quality materials as well, we do recommend you place a mat inside though. If you are looking for toys for kids a few years older, check out our guide on the best toys for 3 year old’s.
- Large, spacious interior
- Has net door and windows
- There is even a skylight
Mega Bloks Big Building Bag, as the name suggests, is a big bag of blocks for your kid to play with. Building blocks are a proven way to enhance cognitive functions and problem-solving skills. This is exactly why giving your baby the tools to experiment is important.
The Mega Bloks Big Building Bag contains 60 building blocks that come in different shapes and sizes. There is even a convenient storage bag so you won’t accidentally step on the block yourself and have to hide the tears of pain from the baby.
The best thing about the Mega Bloks Big Building Bag is its affordability. They are not expensive so you can get multiple bags. The blocks are also compatible with other packages offered by Mega Bloks too so you can expand down the road.
- Have 60 pieces
- The bag is a great storage solution
- Different colors and sizes
The Costway Baby Balance Bike is a neat and relatively safe way for your baby to gain a better sense of balance. The bike can help build lower body strength in the baby and provide a fun way for them to roam around the house.
The bike doesn’t have pedals so the baby has to move around on their feet. This is a good gateway to building balance and eventually allowing the baby to walk. The design of the bike is also superb, there are no sharp or hard edges on the whole bike making it a bit safer.
The tires are compatible with indoor and outdoor surfaces. They won’t damage your floors either. The Costaway Baby Balance Bike is available in white and pink colors. If you prefer a physical activity-based toy for 1-year-olds, this is a great option.
- Soft yet sturdy tires.
- The design is safe and has no edges.
- The seat is big and spacious.
This one is an old classic and you cannot beat those. This fluffy rocking horse made by ToyStar is exactly that, a fuzzy horse your kid can ride. It comes with faux fur that is soft to the touch, the saddle is comfortable to sit on and there are wooden handles to hold on to.
The horse is detailed as well and has all the important features. From the eyes to the years and from cute hooves to the mane, everything is there. This is great for educational purposes as well as entertainment. The rocking horse can rock on any flat surface without damaging it.
You will need to do some basic assembly though, everything is included in the package and it will take only a few minutes. Overall, this is a great toy for a kid and can help encourage imaginative play. The Fluffy Rocking Horse is great for storytimes too.
- The fake fur is nice to the touch
- The woodwork is sturdy and of quality
- Assembly is easy with included screws
What do you get when you combine whacking stuff with slight education? You get Best Learning’s Whack & Learn Mole. This is a fun and creative way to engage your baby and also help them learn stuff while having fun.
The toy is simple, a simple tap on the “mole” part kicks the toy off. The toy dishes out alphabets, colors, and numbers. It even comes with a sleep mode with some classic songs for when the baby wants to sleep.
The only downside is that it can be a bit annoying for the parents after a while, thankfully you can turn it off whenever you want. On the plus side, babies seem to love toys like these and it can keep them occupied for a while.
- A baby can operate this
- No sharp edges anywhere
- Teaches alphabets, colors, and numbers
This toy is a simple dance mat for the kids. The baby can play music with their hands or feet if they have already started walking. Crawling can also produce some fun tunes. This toy is a great way to exercise their tiny bodies without much input from you.
The Kimy Dance Mat is made with non-woven fabric and is soft to the touch. It is also skin-friendly and won’t produce any irritation on the baby’s skin. The mat can be folded for storage or transport as well, which is always a plus.
- Has a soft fabric
- Includes different instruments
- Highly sensitive to touches
The Hillington My First Ride is a colorful buggy car for babies. It comes in three different colors. This toy is great for exercising the legs as the baby has to move around using them. It is a fun toy for 1-year-olds because of its interactivity and mobility.
The car is made out of mainly plastic but is very sturdy. You don’t have to worry about the baby smashing the car in the dinner table, although it recommended that you avoid that. There is a small compartment under the seat too, let the baby know about it, we are sure they want to keep another toy safe in there.
- Colorful and fun design
- The tires are sturdy
- The under-seat compartment is great
This awesome toy for 1-year-olds is a walker with a lot of interactive features. Your kid will love walking around with this toy. There is an abacus, blocks, a xylophone and so much more. The colorful walker is sure to become a favorite in no time at all.
The walker is designed to stimulate physical as well as mental growth in the baby. It is especially great if the kid is just starting to walk as it will be a great walking aid. The walker offers sound, touch, and sight-based activities.
- The tiny wheels are sturdy and stable
- The abacus is a neat addition
- Comes with sticks for the xylophone
This toy is a bit future proof and will require your constant attention. However, it is one of the best toys for the baby. The blocks are sturdy and easy to play with but some blocks feature some edges which can be a problem. If you are looking for a long term product that your baby can play with up to 3 years, this is the one.
The blocks are all shaped differently and have varying colors. There is no way to assemble them but the baby can stack them however they want. Overall, it’s a great sturdy toy that will last a long while.
- Comes with 50 blocks
- Blocks are made with German Beechwood
- Ships with a storage box
