A Few of Her Favorites

Our daughter is almost thirteen months old. It’s such a blessing to watch her grow in personality, enjoyment, curiosity, and love. It’s bittersweet & almost as if the time is slipping through our fingers.

Now that she is walking around the house quite confidently, I’ve been able to see what activities she enjoys the most.

Of course spending time outdoors, at the park, in the ocean, with friends, or in museums is her absolute FAVORITE, but when daddy and mommy have things to do INDOORS, here are some of the loose parts and toys she is drawn to. Maybe your little one will enjoy some of these ideas, too!

Picture disks

All you need: a random assortment of tops, velcro, and pictures! It’s amazing to see her recognize faces of our family and friends and spend time taking the pictures off the velcro, putting the pictures back on the velcro, and putting the disks back into the container.


Tupperware with pasta inside



Mason jar tops

She puts these on, under, inside, and behind everything! Also a fun loose part to bring to the beach or during a bath.


Wooden maze

This Melissa & Dough wood can be suctioned to an area. Great to keep little hands curious & busy.


Shape Sorter

Melissa & Doug’s wooden shape sorter was a present to us. The blocks are great for grabbing, moving, and exploring.



These formula tins act as noise makers, rolling objects, drums, containers, blocks, you name it!



Manhattan Toy’s skwish teether & rattle can be pushed down, thrown, bitten, built with, and so much more.
