    Buying the best toys for your one-year-old sounds like fun but it can also be tricky. Get one that’s too advanced for her and she’ll struggle with it; too basic, and she’ll lose interest.

    At the age of seven to 12 months, your child can sit up and pick up things. She may also be able to stand and cruise. Provide toys that move along with her for an element of adventure.

    Sandra Heng, class leader at enrichment centre Baby Sensory Singapore says: “Ask yourself: How does this toy stimulate the child’s five senses?”

    Toys that demonstrate cause and effect are an endless source of entertainment and learning.
