What Features Should the Best Toys for 1 Year Olds Offer?

Although they’re not quite ready for imaginative play, educational toys have an important role in helping 1 year olds develop their motor skills, which is crucial for overall development. As with any toys, the suitable options for this age group will vary according to the child. But there are always some key things to look out for when looking for educational toys for 1 year old kids.

Firstly, toys for toddlers should be safe and not pose a swallow hazard, as the first place they go tends to be the mouth! Toddlers often like to throw things and make a bit of noise, so soft or cardboard toys are great, both of which we offer in our range. The best options will also be stimulating in terms of colours, different textures, and even sounds. Simple puzzles improving that ‘pincer grip’ and hand-eye coordination – like games that require your little one to place the right shapes in the right gaps – are great toys for toddlers.

Great Gifts for 1 Year Old Boys

We stock a variety of educational toys for 1 year old boys – all of which are guaranteed to ignite their curiosity and provide safe, endless hours of fun. 


While our range of toys for 1 year olds focuses on many gender neutral toys, there are options that will take the fancy of your special boy in particular. Toy cars, boats and other vehicles adorn our range, made from large pieces to ensure safety even when placed in toddler mouths. Or, how about some toy dinosaurs? The SmartMax My First Dinosaurs set is a great way to engage little minds and instil in them a love for prehistoric beasties.
