A first birthday is a momentous occasion in a child's life. Their first year of life is full of development and achievements so there is plenty of  need for celebration. Finding the right gift for the occasion can take some thought but fear not because we have five gift ideas for you that are tried and tested and mega hits with the one year old crowd:

1. Alphabet Blocks - It's amazing the uses that can come out of a nice set of alphabet blocks. Not only do they have educational purposes, they are also good for building and fine tuning little ones  motor skills. Most one year olds will take great pride in stacking a tower of blocks and then knocking it over. Later on, mum and dad can use the same blocks to introduce them to the letters of the alphabet. For extra fun, why not buy a set of blocks that comes in a wagon. It's great for storage plus kids love pulling their blocks around in it.

2. Sand and Water Table - Sand and Water Table have grown in popularity in recent years with the toddler crowd and with good reason. It combines two of the things that they love best…splashing in water and playing in sand. There are a wide variety of Sand and Water Tables to choose from these days from from the Construction themed Builder's Bay by Little Tikes to the ever popular Naturally Playful Sand and Water Table by Step 2.

3. Push Toys - By one year old, most little ones are walking or learning to walk. Push toys are a favorite because of this reason. A toy vacuum, toy lawn mower, or toy shopping cart are among the popular choices with this age group. The Fisher Price Corn Popper is another classic push toy that kids seem to love.

4. Outdoor Fun - At one whole year old they are ready to go outside more and explore the world. Having a few toys  to make their outdoor time more enjoyable are always a great idea. An outdoor toddler swing to hang from the backyard tree, patio, or swing set will bring a lot of joy to any toddler. So will a ride on toy or a toddler climber toy with a slide.

5. Ball Pit - Little ones get a lot of joy from climbing in and jumping around in ball pits but who doesn't cringe about putting their little one into the ball pit at the local fast food restaurant where unknown germs always seem to linger. There are a lot of great ball pits for toddlers that range in price from about $30-50 and are incredibly easy to set up, take down, and store.
