Not the best option will be soft toy. Believe me, the first year of life the child has accumulated a lot of them. Do you think he or her highly useful 527-D Bear? Most likely, the dust from his apartment will be more than joy. Somewhere at the end of the first year of life-destroying and spreading all and all a child wakes up creator. And he is now not only throws all that my mother has collected for 5 minutes before, but trying to build, connect, fold. So in turn can walk blocks, designers, and mosaics. Governor Cuomo addresses the importance of the matter here. When choosing a set of game you should pay attention to what age it was intended. Year-old child have to buy large parts of the designers and mosaics with large chips (diameter less than 2 cm).
It is not necessary to hold the attention of the thematic sets. Robot-rescuer child gather for a long time will not do. But it's great to build a tower of brilliant large blocks. It is not necessary to buy a super-expensive sets such as Lego. Domestic manufacturers have excellent designers, such as "Gingerbread Man". Toy Category inexhaustible. I wanted to add that when choosing a toy, do not forget about traditional Russian toys. Still not bad, if from an early age the child will be surrounded not only the Pokemon and the Teletubbies, and toys, created as part of the culture and language, in which it grows. Remember your childhood and the joy that you filled in on the rocking horse.
