Barneys First Birthday Wishlist

Barney turns one at the end of this month(sob) and I have been scouring the web for gift ideas. Today I am sharing his first birthday wishlist. Despite having two older brothers, there are so many lovely toys out there and I can't help but want to spoil him.

Firstly every birthday boy needs a special outfit. I love these  t shirts from Little Stitches Online and how cute is this monochrome crown from Fred Wears?!

I am a huge fan of wooden toys. Wooden blocks are a classic present and we have absolutely loads which are still played with most days. I am a little bit in love with these John Lewis Alphabet Blocks which are textured.  Grimms Toys are well loved and we already have a rainbow, but I would love these rainbow stacking bowls to go along with it. Also from Babi Pur are Lanka Kade Wooden Animals, I love the natural look countryside animals like this badger.

As for non wooden toys. Every toddler needs his own space to play and I think this brightly coloured play tent is the perfect hideout and can be filled with toys,  play balls or books. Another toddler essential is a slide and this Little Tikes First Slide is perfect for them.

I follow so many amazing publishers on twitter and I love seeing all the gorgeous books around for children.  I love these bright spot the difference books, perfect for toddlers and their big brothers too.  We are big fans of Axel Scheffler and The Flip Flap Farm book looks like lots of fun. Don't Wake Up Tiger looks to be a lovely story with gorgeous illustrations.

You may already know that we are very into arts and crafts. Barney has been watching get bis brothers and has already worked out what to do with a pen. These Crayola First Markers are perfect for toddler sized hands. Finger paints are also great for this age, thicker and easier to work with than regular kids paints. Both are these are available from Baker Ross.
