Some great Christmas ideas for a 17 month old
posted by Thandi
Wow! It really has been forever since I last posted anything, but with Christmas around the corner, I figured it might be a good chance for me to jot down a couple ideas for anyone struggling to find gifts for their 17 month olds out there!
Noam has become even more curious and has resorted to trying to take most objects apart using his super-human strength little digits - but I managed to find a couple of things that can challenge this young man and here they are:
Walter Toys - another awesome German brand of toys
Walter - Schrauben und Muttern (aka Nuts and Bolts)
The website above is for Walter, yet another German brand that makes wonderful wooden toys for kids, this time the Nuts and Bolts toy we got Noam is keeping him well and truly entertained. He is trying to figure out how to unscrew the bolts from each other and trust me, this can offer you up to a good 10 minutes of respite - if needed. (Approx €10)
Tomy - Aquadoodle (Classic)
This is a definite must have, I think, for when you go to the childless friend’s house, as this has helped to keep Noam calm and even made our friends believe he is a very silent and well behaved boy (!). Awesome!
It is so easy to pack and the pen, never runs out of ink, because it is filled with water. The best thing about this (for me) is that if your kid feels like picking up the pen and drawing on your carpet (ours is white!!), it is all ok - there is simply NO MESS! (Approx £20)
I have no doubt that I will be posting more here as the days leading up to Christmas get closer, but I hope these help to give you some ideas - if you are stuck!
