Happy birthday to all the one year olds out there! At the one year mark your child will begin engaging in pretend play, which is when they may use gestures, items, etc. to pretend to do something. They’ve been observing you for a year now and see what you do, how you do certain activities, and when you do them – they want to be just like you! So don’t be surprised if your child picks up a broom and starts sweeping ☺
Below are some pretend play toys that you should definitely have in your bag of tricks! They are appropriate for all genders and a large variety of age to get the most bang for our buck!
