Toys for 1 year olds can rarely be divided by gender, as children at this early age are challenged and curious about many of the same toys. It is usually only later that children's interests change direction. But this is still not a rule, as girls can be just as interested in boys' toys as vice versa. For that matter, you can of course find boys' toys that are more boyish than others. You may have a child who is full of energy and interested in more active play, which in later life is very much aimed at boys. Basically, baby toys for the 1 year old have become too uninteresting and need more challenges. Ideal boy toys for 1 year olds are toys where the child does not have to struggle to maintain interest, but toys that the child can manage and of course something that challenges.
You can get inspiration for 1 year old boy toys below, where we come up with great ideas for the ideal boy toy. It could be that this year's birthday present or Christmas gift is in order. Read along here.

We've come up with suggestions for what might interest boys aged 1, so we can give you inspiration for what boys' toys to put under the Christmas tree this year. Strollers are a sure hit with little ones because they get curious about their motor skills.
