Prince George of Cambridge will celebrate his first birthday on 22nd July and what a busy year it’s been for the young toddler! From his whirlwind tour of Australia to days out at the polo with mum and dad, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, we’ve enjoyed watching him grow and now it’s time to celebrate!
No doubt members of the Royal household will be considering the perfect gift to mark the last 12 months, and we have some ideas of our own! Take a look at the toys we think are just perfect for wishing His Royal Highness, and all toddlers celebrating their first birthday this summer, a very Happy Birthday.
While he may be too young to start building his empire, the young prince can practice his construction skills with the Stacking Tower from the Dr Miriam @ Galt range –a seven cup stacking tower with a fun flower to place on top. The Stacking Tower encourages manual dexterity and hand-eye coordination as the cups are placed on top of and inside each other. Learn about big and small and top and bottom, the cups are ideal for sand and water play.
As Prince George begins to find his feet as a member of the royal household, the Baby Walker, a wooden push along walker truck and 30 bricks, will help him take his first steps! The Baby Walker promotes balance and coordination in preparation for walking independently. Sturdy and stable in quality hardwood, the Baby Walker is part of a range of baby toys developed with Dr Miriam Stoppard, the UK’s most trusted parenting expert.
The fun Ambi Max Pull Along is a friendly stand-in for when Prince George’s real little dog Lupo is fulfilling his royal duties. Young children love to pull things on wheels and the toy, with a wagging head and tail, encourages balance, coordination and independence as the child walks along pulling Max.
The royal celebrations are bound to be packed full of party games and fine food, but if you’re planning a party fit for a king, why not make your very own cake stand to display your cupcakes with pride? Simply print off a cupcake stand template, cut out your design then fit it together!
The perfect gift for any toddler on the go, the colourful High Chair Rattle has a fun flower to fix onto a high chair tray or table with the suction pad. The rattle includes a soft squeaky ball, bead rattle and spinner. The toy encourages manual dexterity, hand-eye coordination and the learning of cause and effect.
