While purchasing toys for kids, it’s crucial to ensure that the products are age appropriate. Some toys have small pieces that can pose a choking hazard for little ones, so make sure you don’t miss to check if the product’s age recommendation includes 1 year old.
1 year is a key development age where babies are learning all sorts of physical and mental skills. At the age of 1 the child starts walking steadily, climbing stairs, start speaking a few words, and enjoy stories. As such, it’s often beneficial to purchase toys that encourage babies to develop these skills. Also check our Gift Guide 2020 for 0-2 Years Infants & Toddlers.

3. Ride Ons
Imagine yourself sitting into your dream car, may be an Audi or Mercedes or a BMW or may be any other SUV car like Range Rover. Does it gives a great feeling? I think so.
The children like to imitate their elders, maybe Mom or Dad or any other family member they have been with. When they see you driving, they also like to sit with you on the driver seat and control the car. This ride-on car looks like a Range Rover. It is baked with features like Music & Light, a Horn, under-seat storage. The big and wide wheels helps grip the ride on to any flat surface. The backrest tends to be an anti-fall feature of the car. Ride on develops gross motor skills in the most fun way.
4. Toyzone Baby Lion Tricycle
Take your babies out for a walk, where you walk and they enjoy exploring the world with their little eyes. Why not take them in a royal ride? May be a tricycle instead of a pram/stroller.
When your baby turns 1 and starts walking steadily, it’s time to get them a baby tricycle. Babies are no more comfortable in the safety belts of the strollers, they want space to feel free to play and explore. This Baby Lion Tricycle will give them ultimate joy and fun. This tricycle may remain with the babies till they age 4-5.
This is a convertible baby tricycle with 2 usage modes-
- During the age 1 year babies cannot walk properly and their feet do not touch the tricycle peddle, the parental handle helps parents to take them around. While the footrest and armrest ensures the safety of the baby.
- After the age of 2 years, when the baby feet can reach tricycle peddle, the accessories in the tricycle like footrest, armrest & parental handle can be removed and the baby can easily ride the tricycle.
- So the most interesting benefit of this tricycle is the life of the product.
