20 Toys for One-Year-Old Girls

This is a one-year-old girl wearing bunny ears while playing with Easter eggs.

Is your new to toddlerhood little girl breaking into the kitchen cupboards and knocking your perfectly color-coordinated books off your shelf? It sure gets frustrating picking up after them all day, and it isn’t always possible to keep them away either. That’s where the perfect, age-appropriate toys come in full force!

For one-year-old little girls, toys such as play utensils, cleaning supplies, building blocks, sound toys, plush toys, baby dolls, play dough, sorting toys, bubbles, water toys, and other various play items can be used to interact, entertain, educate and distract their busy little minds and bodies.

At the early age of one, most kids are still evolving from baby antics to the curious phase of growing into their own person while absorbing every bit of information put in front of them. This means they are doing a lot of copying, learning to walk, trying to talk, and building creativity. During this time, there are several play items that you can use to nurture their growth.

6. Party Pack Play Dough

Pack of Birthday Party Favors Dough (80 Pack Dough)

Click image for more info

We love this party pack set of 80 play doughs because they are small containers with a single serving session of dough to play with. 

One-year-olds tend to love squishing the play dough, but they also have short attention spans and can leave it lying around or throw it into a dirty spot. This causes it to dry up or get spiled. It’s easier and more budget-friendly if you give them small amounts at a time.

The best part about having a pack of 80 is that when one piece gets spoiled, you have 79 more. You can also toss a couple into your handbag or diaper bag when going out or traveling, which means you have easy access to something which will occupy them if need be. You don’t have to be concerned if you need to throw it away immediately after.

An added benefit to buying a huge pack for a one-year-old is that there will always be enough for all the kids if siblings, cousins, and friends are involved since little kids always want what the other kid has. No more fighting, and everyone gets to have fun.
