My nephew is turning 1 soon. I want to get him something other than clothes. Besides, he's fairly well covered in the clothes department right now anyway. Do you guys have any ideas?

If you want to drive the parents absolutely insane...get a battery operated toy that makes lots of noise!

Actually...little ones do like to make noise (they call it music)...Fischer Price makes a cassette player for little kids with a microphone...they can dance to music and make strange sounds into the microphone...my kids loved it, still do.

Never too early to start with books too (just make sure they are cardboard, softcover or squishy...the paper ones tend to get eaten or chewed and spit out at that age).

Go be a kid in Toys R Us, or Imaginarium...Have fun picking something out 🙂

I've got an idea...
Make him an orgami Mobile!
Make it to symbolize the love you feel for him! One year olds are soo cute.

Or for his birthday, You could film or video him and make a special statement about how special he is to you. You could interview all the special family members and friends ahead of time telling him how much he's loved. A lifetime treasure for everyone.

One year olds are easy to please! So be creative if you have time.

This is right up my alley! Balls. All different sizes as long as they don't fit into the mouth and no rubber solid ones that pieces can be bit from. And bubbles. Don't get to fancy on the wands with a one year old. A machine that blows bubbles will be a delight, and many simple wands (they get lost quite easily) with lots of bubbles. Or, you can make your own bubble mixture with glycerine and dish soap. This works best. On the expensive side, a sandbox with a cover (kitties will come without one) and all kinds of utensils from any store, used or new. How fun!

Balls? I never thought of that. I have to see what toys he already has this weekend. Origami mobile saounds cool, but I wouldn't know where to start on the mobile part. My sister would probably freak if I gave him something made with a bunch of wire. She's very serious about anything that could possibly harm the kid.

The video sounds interesting, but my jerk friend has the camera right now. I knew I shouldn't have split the cost with someone... I never get access to the camera when I need it.

Hi Silence,
The mobile that I had hanging in my bedroom as a teenager was balanced with nylon thread. No wire there.
If it is hung high, would not present a threat to a one year old, just enjoyment looking up.

They also have those glow in the dark stars for the ceiling!

So have you figured out your gift yet?
Hope your nephew has a wonderful 1st birthday! It only gets better to watch each year...children growing.

Children loved to be read to at that age and they have wonderful, touchy feel books that are interactive.

How is everything going for you?

I got a few more days to breathe on this thing. There is a big party today where everybody in the world is invited. Just a big open house at my sister's place. For today I got him a card. His actual birthday is a few days from now. So I can see what he gets from all the other people today and then make a better decision on what to get him in the next few days.

Hi silence......
I have three children. At one year old, they don't care about as much as you would think. Bubbles are a great idea! Kids that age LOVE bubbles. Big, plastic type trucks, the big legos, plastic floor puzzles that they have to matxh the piece with the shape is also very entertaining to them. Children do love sand boxes and that is an awesome idea for a child who is older......a one year old will probably just try to eat it or end up getting it into his eyes or something. Musical toys or a little musical box to go in his crib is well liked.
On the non-financial side, how about making a homemade "gift certificate"... Good for a morning or afternoon at the park (or zoo or wherever) and lunch at McDonalds with auntie. not only will he enjoy that, but so will mom!

OOPS! I'm sorry. No, don't change your nickname. You picked it because you like it...it's yours. Just make the correction if necessary...and I do apologize for just assuming (:

If I may ask, why the name "Silence"? I chose "Tradewinds" because I love the ocean and that beautiful breeze that flows from it......

Disney has a Buzz Lightyear bubble blowing machine that is very cool. And, it isn't noisy. I bought one for a friend of mine's son and he has used it for 4 years now.

He is almost 6 so he likes to pull it out when he has a party or he is lip-synching.

Good luck!

silence because that's the most descriptive term for me. I'm not very vocal in real life, and just barely more vocal on this board. I just find a quiet place to sit and watch everybody else walk on by.

Hi Silence,

I have been on these boards for a long time myself but didn't start writing until recently. I was quietly watching and deciding if I could be a part of this and trust it. I am so thankful that things have evolved on here like they have. You speak up every now and then and it is always good to see your name on one of the posts. Did you ever figure out what to give to your nephew? My name on this site kind of tells you how much of a risk taker that I am not. Maybe my name will change one of these days and you can just call me TS like MJ does sometimes. That doesn't sound so bad.

Hi Tradewinds,

I have been seeing your posts for several days now. Glad to have you here. How old are your three children? I have 2 and they are growing up on me. My oldest is 14 and my youngest is 11. They keep me busy but in a different way from when they were littler. This website is really a blessing to me lately. It took courage to write for the first time on here, but then there are so many accepting people that you feel like you fit in immediately.

I had a little bit of help yesterday. My other sister flew in to go to the party as well as attend my graduation. Yesterday we went out to pick up my robes and we also went out shopping. I went with the balls idea. We found some good ones.

During the party, my other sister got my nephew a book that we had as children. Grover's, There's a Monster at the End of This Book with Grover. That thing rocks. I completely forgot about it until I reread it the other night. YOU TURNED THE PAGE! I was dying.

So everything should be good.

Tooscared,

I know what you mean about posting first time and how people are...it has been a blessing to me too. I feel like I have found a whole houseful of friends! Will probably start a thread myself tomorrow.... need to talk some.
Silence...great with the ball thing! Glad it worked out. So tells us, man of few words, in what respect are you graduating? (:

college. No more school for me. Somehow, I'm not exactly as excited as everybody else is about this. Damn that was some ugly alliteration. Anyway, tomorrow will officially be the end of school for me. Woohoo. That fact probably won't hit me until well into next month.

Why aren't you excited? What did you graduate with? Did you go straight from High School to college, or is this something you went back to? Is that enough questions to get you talking? (:

Hmm... I keep forgetting the revolving door on these boards. OK.

I graduated high school in 94. I took one year off where I did nothing but watch tv and play video games. Then I went to community college to find somehing I was interested in. It took me 2 years to find computer graphics, and another 3 years to fininsh off every course they had in the field and accumulate enough academics to graduate. Yes. I spent 5 years at a 2 year school.

I then transferred to a university in north jersey, but left after 6 weeks due to the fact that their facilities weren't worth shit. My community college had a better program for video editing.

So I transferred to temple university last year. What I didn't know was that temple would take every single credit I've ever earned. I came in with 96 credits from my community college, so I've only spent 3 semesters here.

Now I've graduated.
