Best Toys for 1 Year Old Girls
The Best Toys for 1 year old girls are those that fit her budding personality.
My little girl is well out of her toddler stage, but her first years of life were filled with toys that I can see now really left an impact on her personality.
VTech Baby’s Light-Up Laptop, Pink
One of our little girls favorite toys at one year old, were educational toys, like the Learning Laptop by Vtech. She could be just like Mommy, sitting on the floor next to me, pushing buttons and moving the ‘mouse’ as she watched me working.A laptop just for your smart little one! Light up animated display and plays over 100 sounds, songs and phrases.
6 large buttons and a moveable mouse that works to teach your baby while they enjoy the show.
My daughter played with her Learning Laptop until she was about 5 years old! She is six now, and can navigate around on her ‘grown up’ laptop better than her father!
Recommended age 12 mos. to 3 yrs.
Rockin’ Rider Candy 2-in-1 Pony Ride-On
Her favorite plush toy was a rocking pony given to her by her grandma, that would sing a song and ‘whinny and neigh’ just like a real pony when she pinched it’s ear. This one was pink so it was perfect for her to ride on, she especially liked rocking while watching her preschool programs on television.
The pony shown to the left is a newer version of the Rockin’ Rider Pony my daughter got for her 2nd Christmas from her Mimi (Sammie was 18 mos.) Oh how she loved to ride that pony!
She would sit and rock, or get her brush and groom her. She also loved squeezing her ear and singing along with the pony song or laughing at the pony sounds. She loved it so much she still has it, safely packed away for when she has kids of her own.
The Rockin’ Rider 2 – in – 1 Pony looks like it would be even more fun since it will convert from a rocking pony to a ride on pony that your little cowgirl can scoot around on. I can only imagine how much more my Sammie would have been on that horse!
Takes 3 AA Batteries. Ages 12 mos. to 3 years holds up to 40lbs.
How to Choose the Best Toys for One Year Olds in your Life
When choosing the best toys for one year old baby girls, think about them for just a couple of minutes.
Think about what kind of things you want to influence your little girl as she grows from a one year old baby, to that adorable (ok, maybe not always so adorable, like that time she took off her diaper and smeared its contents all over the wall, the crib and herself… ugh!) toddler. Choose toys that will help you to guide her in all aspects of her young life.
Some toys are more educational than others, like the Fisher-Price Laugh ‘N Learn Puppy & Friends Learning table. Little girls enjoy playtime while learning about letters and numbers as well as developing hand-eye coordination and other essential early learning skills.

Rockabye Owlivia Pink Owl Rocker
I love the look of plush rockers. They are a softer alternative to the wooden or plastic counterparts, which I think is safer for wobbly babies. This one with its pretty owl design and the built in musical feature is just irresistible!
The Amazon description says from 1 month, but I would have to say from one year – or at least when your baby girl is able to stand and balance on her own.
The Owl has four buttons that when pressed play one of four original musical tunes. There is also a back rest hidden in the center tail feather great for supporting baby’s back. Constructed of hardwood Maple.
Comes with the batteries for the musical feature. Ages 12 mos. to 3 years.
Ride On Toys for 1 Year Old Girls
Vtech Learning Toys For 1 Year Old Girls
I love Vtech Toys for my kids. The educational aspect is always implemented in such a way to be entertaining – so the kids don’t even know that they are learning! It’s just plain fun to them.
The Alphabet Activity cube can keep your little one busy for quite some time with all the colors, shapes, letters and sounds. The Vtech Alphabet Activity Cube is available in Red or Pink. Then there is the smaller version called the Busy Learners Activity Cube, with a smaller size and not as many activities but still good educational fun for baby.
The Vtech Sit to Stand Walker is a great activity center for baby girls that are just learning how to keep their balance. My daughter had one when she was younger and loved to push it around the house, and then sit and play with the musical features and talk on the phone like Mommy.
My niece had the Touch and Teach Elephant, and the Magic Star Learning Table and I loved watching her try to decide between the two. Both are full of lights and sounds and several activities to capture baby’s attention and bring smiles with their cute looks and fun things to do.
