1st Birthday Gifts
A baby’s first birthday is an important occasion. We carry many baby toys and items to remember a baby’s first birthday but also gifts that are appropriate for a child’s development after the first year.
To remember a baby’s first year and birthday, we have various photo albums and birthday toy sets designed as baby boy or girl gifts. Photo albums allow parents to keep pictures and memories of their first year with their new baby. Unlike most toys, a photo album can be a more personalized gift. Birthday toy sets contain tactile toys in birthday shapes, like a cake, party hat, and cupcake – like the many objects that a child will see at later birthday parties. All shapes are brightly colored and making chiming, jingling, or crinkling sounds.
One popular first birthday toy is a play camera with a mirror lens. If a baby has seen his or her parents taking pictures with a camera, he or she might want to, as well. For this age group, one year to eighteen months, we carry many interactive toys like hammers and pegs, trucks, toy drums, musical gears, and animal toy sets that make sounds. To prepare a baby for learning in preschool, we also have toys to introduce your baby to the ABCs and food and animal names.
Like our baby shower gift sets, Genius Babies also creates our own customized packages for a first birthday. We carry Smart Baby’s or Genius Baby’s First Birthday Gift Package, both of which include a combination of toys, music, DVDs, and educational games like puzzles and flashcards. Many of the products, such as the DVD, puppets, and flash cards are made by Baby Einstein. In addition to introducing a baby to important classical music and nursery rhymes, the flashcards in the gift packages can be used to help with learning words, spelling, and meaning. Children learn to speak when spoken to frequently, and flashcards, as well as reading, will help a child develop or enhance his or her language skills.
