When a bright-eyed toddler is opening up to new experiences every day, so their first birthday gift should prompt them to be curiouser and curiouser, don't you think?

Here's our handpicked recommendations to help you choose the perfect first birthday present for a special baby.

Activity Walkers

Activity walkers are a fun and engaging way to keep your little one occupied. If your toddler can sit unassisted, activity walkers can be an ingenious way to get them to stand up and start walking while developing their fine motor skills. They can tinker with the spinner, sliders, peekaboo window and learn about shapes and colours. What fun!

                                Balance bikes for your eager rider

                                You read that right - you can teach your toddler how to ride even though they're just a year old! And, balance bikes are no doubt a great start for your adventurous toddler. Balance bikes help your child focus on just one thing first - balancing - before they graduate to their big-kid ride. These bikes also help develop your baby's strength and coordination!

                                And the best part? Adjustable balance bikes last for years by adapting to your baby's growth and development needs.
