Riley turned one years old and toys have really been a lifesaver with the long wake windows and the busy-ness of this almost toddler. Riley loves all her books and we update this list often with her favourites. You can also shop our Amazon Favourites, here.
Duplo Lego Sets
We got the unicorn version of this but it’s basically the same thing. I love that it has a ‘transportation’ element to it too, so when she’s into cars or ‘driving’ the toys, these will be perfect. For now she pulls them apart and tries to put them back together. They’re also super affordable at under $14. I store them in pieces in these baskets on her shelf and they perfectly match the one you get with Lovevery Playkit.

Riley is literally obsessed with this toy and plays with it independently every single day! It’s supposed to be for ages 3 and up but Riley figured it out almost immediately at 12 months. I got mine in the US. but it seems like you can now get it through Amazon CA.
Riley isn’t building much yet but she does pull them apart and pack away the blocks which somehow keeps her busy!
We posted a Reel about all our favourite activities to get Riley cruising and standing more and it included these suction cup spinning toys. They’re also so fun in the bath! We love the Fat Brain Toys version but they seem to be unavailable at the moment. I’ve listed a few other options below.
We got a set in the Lovevery Playkit and Riley loves feeling all the textures. We use them to learn words, too.
