The more I think about what to get Charlie this Christmas, the more I realize he only plays with a fraction of his toys. You never know which toys a one year old will gravitate towards, so really pay attention to what they already love and what draws them to those when purchasing others. 

 I mixed in items Charlie has and loves with some items I’ll be getting him for Christmas.

Two of my go-to sites for children’s toy recommendations are Fat Brain toys & Mindware


The LOVE list

This tractor for any animal lover. 

This tree house

This Vtech walker. His most used toy at 14 months. 

Large and small sensory balls. 

For the holiday season check out the, If I Were A Reindeer book and the Reindeer stuffed animal.  There is also a polar bear version as well, see below. Jellycat is the BEST! 

I also added in some bowls and kitchen tools. Charlie loves having his own, especially when I’m in the kitchen.
