Can you even believe that Otis is almost 1?!?!?!?! My mind is blown just thinking about how this could even be possible. My little baby boy is going to be a toddler soon and I am having all the feelings. I am in full force planning his Mickey Birthday party and put together a gift list for our friends and family that were asking what he needed. The truth is, he didn’t NEED anything but it is so sweet to have every spoil him for his birthday. He was lucky to get some of his gifts early so we can set everything up for his party and have some more outdoor toys for all the kids to play with. All of these gifts can be found on Walmart.com. I am so excited to be partnering with Walmart today to share my gift wish list for Otis today. They seriously have every baby brand so it’s always a go-to for us when we need to pick something up for Otis. I also use their in-store pickup for formula because grocery pickup is life changing. And just to note, they are celebrating Breastfeeding mama’s this month with some great deals you can find here. Scroll down for my list of gift ideas for Otis!
FIRST BIRTHDAY GIFT IDEAS
Step2 Up & Down Roller Coaster: This is a splurge for a toy but it’s one of Otis’ current favorite things. Our family sent this gift and I push Otis on the car and his face just lights up. Will be so fun when he can actually ride by himself! Love that you can use this indoor or outdoors. We have ours in our backyard.
Tegu 24 Piece Set: Otis loves to play with blocks now so love the idea of this magnetic set.
Step2 Whisper Ride Cruiser: This is Otis’ fav toy of the moment. We used to take him in the stroller around the neighborhood but now he gets to cruise in his car! I’m not gonna lie, it’s so fun for me to push him in this. Love getting out of the house and getting fresh air with Otis so this car has come in handy to make our walks extra fun.
Baby Einstein Discovering Music Activity Table: Otis’ cousins actually have this activity table so we tested it out back in July when we visited our family. Otis was obsessed so we added it to his birthday list. It has music and lights up so there is lots to occupy him and he can stand and play at it. It’s at a perfect height.
Vtech Smart Shots Sports Center: I mean… baby sports stuff!!! So so cute. Love that this one he can use as basketball and soccer in one. We keep this in our bedroom so we have some toys in each room. It lights up and has some music also.
Dimpl: This is great for your diaper bag. We were recently out to dinner with friends who have a toddler a little older than Otis and they let us borrow this. Occupied him well so we added it to our list!
Instep Take 2 Bicycle Baby Bike Trailer: A bigger ticket item but something fun to think about for birthday lists. Not so much a toy but we love biking so it’s going to be great to bring Otis along now that he is old enough.
Thule Ridealong Lite: We just got this seat for Otis and went on his first bike ride yesterday!! What I love about a bike seat that is mounted on the back is it’s a little more stable when your biking in terms of balance and he can use it for longer than the front mounted ones. OTIS LOVED IT. He was giggling on our bike ride and it melted my heart. Blake also said it was pretty easy to install.
Melissa & Doug Pull Back Vehicles: More toys!! Love these cars.
Little Tikes First Slide: We got this slide to add to our outdoor toys.
Little Tikes Cook ‘n Grow BBQ Grill: Love the idea of more toys for outside. This one would be perfect for our patio and Otis can grill it up with Dad 😉
Mega Bloks First Builders: Now that Otis is really starting to play with stacking things, these blocks will be perfect for him.
Magformers: I feel like everyone has these because they are endless entertainment. Love that they are magnets and I feel like he will like these for years to come.
Little People World of Animals See ‘N Say: Basically any toy that has music is a good one. This one has cute animal sounds.
Radio Flyer 4-in-1 Stroll N’ Trike: Another splurge item that I have heard the best things about. This push trike can transition to a bike which I love.
Splash pad: Splash pad is such an easy way to have water fun in the backyard. It sets up in 5 seconds and it is a blast.
