1.) Mega Bloks Lil Dump Truck: P loves trucks and cars of all sorts, but this one is fun for him to store random things in. The come with blocks, but P likes to put his Little People in them. They had a bunch of these at our local TJ Maxx for under $10.
2.) Classic Bead Maze: Patrick runs to these things no matter where they are. Church, doctor's office, wherever he sees one. Now we have one at home that he loves to play with as well.
3.) Mega Bloks: You really can't go wrong with Mega Bloks. Patrick received a couple bags of these for his birthday and we really enjoy them. He is partial to the Mega Bloks Train he received because, again, he loves anything with wheels.
4.) Corn Popper Walker: This makes a lot of noise and he can push it, which makes it a favorite toy for my rowdy one year old. I will say it doesn't work as well on our wood floors, but he definitely makes it pop all over the carpet.
5.) Rubber Balls: Who knew that simple balls could be so fun? P grabs the bin full of them first thing in the morning. He proceeds to throw the balls all out, then kicks and throws them around all day.
6.) Books: Patrick is a huge fan of books. I love receiving them as gifts, but am more hesitant to give them. I just never know what the person may already have in their library. As Patrick begins to learn words, he likes books that he can identify things in. Currently, he loves books with dogs and cats in them.
7.) Little Tikes Cozy Truck: Patrick would seriously let me push him around this truck all day long. He especially likes helping Marc collect the trash in the bins around the house on trash night. He also loves when I play music on my phone and push him around the house while he honks the horn. P is still a little too small to figure out how to use it himself, but he enjoys being pushed around or pushing the truck himself.
8.) Little People Sounds Farm: Patrick has super heroes, a nativity, and a Little People farm. He seriously is obsessed with them all. (Although the nativity is put away now.) The farm is fun because it sings and plays different sounds. It comes with animals, hay, and a farmer. The rooster on the top Patrick loves as well, although it seriously drives him mad that it is attached and won't come off like the other animals.
9.) Basketball Goal: Although this says it is for 1.5 year olds, Patrick loves the basketball goal he received for his birthday! He enjoys "dunking" and making goals. He also likes to clap for himself after he makes the basket because, duh.
10.) Puzzles: Puzzles! I thought this was a unique idea to give as a present. Patrick got a truck puzzle for his birthday party and it was actually the FIRST puzzle he has ever received. Does that make me a bad mom? He doesn't really get the entire idea of it, but he loves to take the pieces apart and clap them back together on the board.
