I have a one-year-old! Crazy.
As I work toward a minimalist-friendly approach to toys, I love things that spark creative play. At this stage, Memphis loves putting things into other things, and these magnet toys my dad picked out are perfect! Plus they help build STEM skills, and are compatible with additional sets so as he “advances” we can get him more.
These cups are so simple but can entertain Memphis for 10 minutes … which in baby time is an eternity. He can stack them or nest them or carry them around like they are his BFFs.
Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker
The exact walker Memphis has was a hand-me-down, but I found a similar one here. Memphis isn’t walking yet but he LOVES doing laps around the house pushing his little walker. I know he doesn’t need the walker … so we’re working on building his confidence. But seeing his face light up with joy as he sprints around the house is one of the best things ever.
Since he was born, Memphis has loved music and sound. This set of instruments was gifted to him by his Nana and Boppy and he gets a kick out of making lots of noise. Surprisingly, it’s not annoying. :)
Now that Memphis has seven (!) teeth, we brush them every night using this finger toothbrush. He actually likes it. The bristles are soft I’m able to actually feel around his mouth since it fits on my finger. And when he does bite down, it’s enough protection to prevent it from hurting.
Rags to Raches Clothes
Currently Memphis has two Rags to Raches outfits (one is too big but sometimes I put him in it anyway). He doesn’t have the one pictured but I love it for fall/winter! These are great because they are super soft and require no snaps or zippers. The stretchy neck opening goes around their body. LOVE. They can be hard to get because they sell out so often! I’ve tried looking at resale sites like Poshmark and Mercari, but they usually resale at the retail price!
Zipadee Zip Wearable Blanket
I’ve mentioned this before, but every time I post a “wake up” video on Instagram someone asks about his sleep sack. He still uses the Zipadee Zip. He’s able to stand and use his arms but it keeps everything warm. He’s almost outgrown his so we need to buy a couple new ones soon! They go all the way up to toddler sizes. I like having two so that when one is in the wash we have another.
Nuby Cups with Straw
We tried a few different kinds of sippy cups, but these ones are Memphis’s favorite. He seems to prefer drinking out of a straw. They don’t spill when tipped over and they are easy for him to grab by the handle at the top.
I hope you found this post useful! Memphis is pretty easy to please right now and the simplest things bring him joy. I know walking is around the corner which will be a whole new experience but I’m in no rush for that to happen.
