My baby girl is turning 1 in March, and I’m not sure what to get her. I was thinking about a swing set, but wanted some ideas? Any suggestions would be great!

  • A swing set is a great idea – she will hopefully use it for many years to come!! Little ones tend to love bouncing also so a trampoline may be a good investment.


  • cubby house? dolls pram, mini kitchen


  • I guess it depends on how much you want to spend. I got my daughter a rocking giraffe, some books, some clothes, and some other toys. I tried not to go too crazy because I knew my family would spoil her and her birthday is only a couple of months before Christmas.


  • I found that just after one they begin to like books and toys that challenge them abit just after one


  • We got our daughter a trike, she still plays on it now (just turned 3).


  • Looking long term I think a swing set is a great idea or a cubby house is another great long term idea


  • Toys suitable for her age, a play gym even toy kitchen sets which she can clang together, but will work out what they are for at a later age.


  • A little play gym


  • Little toys are a great idea. My daughter loves the rattles. Anything noisy lol


  • Welcome to the world of having children. Just wait until she gets older when she has everything. It only gets harder every year.


  • they are some excellent comments here :)


  • I found that I was buying so much for my LO before he turned one that he would’ve thought he was having a birthday every week. I don’t think they understand the concept of birthdays at that age so just buy something that you think she’ll play with.


  • A swing set with a seat suitable for her age, also a seat for older children, we found this useful. We added a slide the next Christmas.


  • there are some good comments here


  • i got my daughter a swing set when she was 2 but she didnt like it as much as i though she would maybe get her that plastic slide thing thats like a cubby house too
