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!
