Top 10 Christmas gifts for children age 0-1.

A baby’s first Christmas can be a very exciting time. Everything is new and their faces just light up. With infants, it can be hard to know what is developmentally appropriate for children so young, but there are some great toys for them available. Here are all of the top toys for children ages 0-1.

Keep in mind that with really young babies, they aren’t able to play with very many things. One option is to get things for when they are a little older. Another option is to get items such as diapers, wipes, and clothing that their parents will be very appreciative of.

It’s great to look for things that grow with the children. There are some toys children will be able to play with for years. The longer they can play with them, the greater value is.

Tails by Matthew Van Fleet

Books are a perfect choice for babies. Parents can read to babies while they are little which greatly helps their development.  This is our FAVORITE book.  It’s interactive with fluffy and moving tails, plus has fun words.  I got it as a gift when my twins were born and then purchased a new version for each of our later children.  Matthew Van Fleet makes a number of other interactive books that are all wonderful.

Ages: Newborn and Up
Teaches: Communication, touch and texture, builds vocabulary, and concepts such as numbers, letters, and colors.



Taggies are available in a variety of colors, sizes, and styles. Babies love the feel of the satin that makes up the interactive loops.

      • Adam

        Was it the coupon for the storytime puppy? I thought that wouldn’t work on the original?

        • mrs b

          I thought it was the story time puppy as well–I kept my whole page intact in case there are any questions as to which products the coupons apply to (I got the fisher price farm with price match, coupons,and gift cards earned with shopkicks)

      You got us Tails for our baby shower and it is one of our girl’s most loved books. There *may* be a few tails missing, so I will also have to get a second copy for baby #2!

      The piano gym fluctuates in price on Amazon; check the difference between the regular and frustration free packaging. Babies r us price matched for me when Amazon had it for ~$33 a month or so ago.

      I have had great luck at both babies r us and target price matching; I just bring that day’s amazon pricing in on a printout. I also scan the bar code in store with my phone to make sure it is still the current price, just in case they insist on pulling it up on their own computers (it hasn’t happened yet, but I like to be armed with all information in case there is an issue)
