One year old girls are at the perfect age for developing key learning skills through imagination and educational toys. The perfect toys for 1 year old girls are the kind that teach them about the world around them while still remaining entertaining.
When choosing presents for a one year old girls, there are 3 types of toys that really stand out – educational toys, physical development toys and role play toys.

Shop N Roll Ride-On
This is a favorite ride on toy for sure because one year old girls are the perfect size for this beauty. They can ride and shop and even keep a little extra under the seat. What I like about these particular ride on toys is that they can be pushed and pulled easily by the big, tall handle in the back. The wide base and tall back make it a good walker toy and ride on toy!
Little People Surprise & Sounds Home
This little doll house is the best gift idea for a one year old girl for the price, you really can’t get a better toy.and This is one that is going to really keep her entertained because little girls (even at one) have a natural instinct to play house. This little dolly house comes with furniture and people so she can start playing as soon as she takes it out of the box. There are more little pieces you can buy for it, an outdoor swing set, a car and more. What my little Sammy enjoys about this dolly house is the lights and sound effects. The different rooms have corresponding lights & sounds like a potty that flushes and lights that turn on.
More Little People Toys for 1 Year Old Girls
Little people toys make the greatest birthday presents for a 1 year old because they are loaded with educational qualities and imagination. These little people playsets are the perfect toys for your one year old girl or grand daughter. The little characters and playsets keep our one year old busy playing in one place for a long time (and that’s a blessing to parents and grand parents).
Baby’s First Purse
Role play toys like these baby girl purses make the best gifts. A baby purse is a classic gift because at this age they want what mommy has and they want to do what mommy does. I like that both of these baby purses offer a set of keys and a cell phone because they are two very popular baby role plays toys that one year old girls love.
Baby Doll Push Stroller
This push stroller is great for balance and role play. The wide base makes it great for one year old girls because it keeps them upright and balanced better than the traditional dolly stroller. This baby doll stroller is perfect for holding a standard size dolly or stuffed teddy bear of your choice. The front of this pink doll stroller features a tray and small toy for dolly. This would be a great gift to buy with some other role play toys like baby bottles, a baby purse and other mommy-like items.
Stella Sweet Sounds First Baby Doll
The Stella Sweet Sounds dolly is the best doll to buy a one year old girl. This is the only Stella doll that makes sweet baby noises.
Stella giggles, says “momma” and makes a sucking noise when you put in her pacifier. Her pacifier is magnetic so it will stay on her face while she is sucking.
Stella is so soft and cuddly which makes her a safe comfort to take anywhere. The best part about baby Stella for mom is that she is washable, so you can put her in the washer without worry. There are a ton of accessories for Stella dolls so she can grow with your 1 year old girl through her toddler age.
Laugh & Learn Baby Kitchen
Are you wondering what to buy a 1 year old for her birthday? This Fisher Price Baby Kitchen makes is great because it combines learning with role play entertainment. My kids (even the boys) enjoyed playing with the baby kitchen toys because they recognize mommy and daddy are always in a similar area.
Little Tikes Activity Garden
Wondering what to buy a 1 year old grand daughter? She will love this little activity garden because it has a lot to do! Put it in your house or outside on the patio for lots of playtime fun. It’s loaded with imagination because it resembles it a real little garden and club house. Open and close the door and the window shutters. Crawl-thru the archway and get the mail from the mailbox. Observe the stars through the telescope. Play piano, enjoy the bead spinner, shape sorter and other activities.
Fisher Price Fun Food Truck
This is a good gift for a 1 year old girl who is already walking. This little food truck is a cool gift idea for a one year old girl because she can serve up fake food in style. The food truck is not your ordinary play kitchen and I think that’s what makes it such a good imaginary play gift for a girl this age. Even her siblings are going to want to join in the fun if you buy her this. There’s all kinds of room and lots to do!
More Fisher Prices Toys for Girls Age 1
Laugh and Learn makes the best toys because they are loaded with educational elements that are entertaining to 1 year old girls. My daughter absolutely loves the learning chair, crawling through the big house and putting her coins in the piggy bank.
Vtech Sit-To-Stand Learning Walker
If you haven’t already purchased this, you should. I know that it’s blue but the primary colors seem to be a lot more vivid than the one that comes in just pink and purple’s. The Vtech Learning Walker is like an entertainment and learning center in one. There is so much that keeps our one year old busy with this toy. This is a push toy but it’s also for sitting too. The face of this learning walker comes off so baby can play with the most entertaining parts inside her play pen or somewhere she doesn’t have to necessarily be mobile.
Princess Ball Play Tent
Want to get a great gift for a 1 yr old girl? Look no further than this amazing princess ball tent and it comes complete with royal balls. Place this in the play room, living room or her bedroom for lots of imaginary fun. It’s an enclosed play tent so the balls don’t go everywhere. The door is a nice touch because it can roll down to help keep the balls inside even better. Little girls love this and it’s just the right size for a toddler girl.
See-Thru Crawl-Thru Tunnel
A crawl-thru tunnel makes a good gift to buy for a 1 year old girl because she will love crawling thru it. A crawl-thru tunnel can be folded up flat and stored away easily when she is not using it. I like this one because you can see her all the way through the tunnel as she crawls through.
Little Tikes 2-in-1 Hanging Swing
This is a good gift idea for a grand daughter or daughter for her first birthday. This hanging swing is a great gift idea because little girls love swinging in it and it keeps them in one place. Our one year old absolutely loves to swing, we actually set ours up with a hook in the living room, but you can be more traditional and hang yours outside (we won’t judge). The great thing about these swings is that they keep your one year old girl in one place, that’s just heavenly because once they start crawling and walking, it’s rare they stay in one place. The swing is safe, it’s got straps over the shoulders and the lap bar that extends through the middle of their legs.
Vtech Musical Microphone
This is the best birthday present for a 1 year old girl to serenade the family with. It’s got lots of buttons and activities for learning and you guessed it, singing too. This microphone amplifies her voice! What do you buy a 1 year old girl who has everything? Her own microphone to steal the show. It lights up, says phrases, plays music and acts as a really cool rattle with it’s pretty ribbons on the side.
Musical Activity House
This is a perfect present for a one year old girl because it has all sorts of things to keep her busy. I think a picture is worth a thousand words, look at the piano, animal shape sorter, counter, and all the wonderful buttons, knobs and other things to do on this little house. It’s a house that is packed with everything a little girl needs to keep her in one spot happily playing. It’s such a great birthday gift or Christmas present because it will be a favorite for a couple years.
Spin Burger Giggling Gourmet Stacking Toy
This cute hamburger stacking toy is educational and great for dexterity. The different pieces are easy to stack and they are large enough for small hands to grip. Pressing the button at the bottom makes the burger spin around. The Bright Starts Stacking Hamburger is colorful and has a friendly face. It’s a simple concept that has them wanting to do it over and over again. Stacking toys are very popular gifts for a one year old and this one is fun because it looks like food.
Activity Books for Girls Age 1
These learning activity books are great for taking with you on the go or playing at home. They keep your one year old engaged with all the built in activities, lights and sounds.
Books for Learning First Words
I absolutely love, love, love these books because they teach babies first words with big colorful push buttons which make it more fun. Your one year old will learn simple words, colors and numbers and be able to recognize them because of the big colorful buttons.
Best Board Books Girls Age 1
Board books make good gifts for one year old girls because they are sturdy, colorful and have stories that appeal to children their age. One of our most treasured gifts that we still have around (long after the toys are gone) are the board books that people bought for our kids.
LeapFrog Learning Lights Remote
The television remote is a popular item in any household and its one that will attract your one year old quickly. I know it may look simple but there’s a lot of entertainment packed into these baby remote controls.
Remote control toys (not talking about rc cars here) are the best toys for 1 year old girls because they imitate something that mom and dad use every single day. I like this remote from LeapFrog because it’s educational and looks like my DirecTV remote that I have at home (in a more whimsical way). There’s colors, lights and sounds that attract my one year old.
Sometimes I pretend like I’m using her remote so that she things she’s got the real deal.
Fun Bath Toys
One of my one year old’s favorite things to do is take a bath. We like to have bath toys in the bath for her to play with because they make it more fun. This little purple octopus is a lot of fun, he’s got rings on his tentacles for playing toss. Another favorite is the swimming penguin, she moves through the water all by herself, it’s so cute to see!
Best Push Toys
The colorful corn popper is one of our favorite push toys but I have to admit, it can be noisy. That noise is what makes my 1 year old love it so much, she loves to push and pop! The shopping cart is a must have because it’s one that will grow with them. The grocery cart has a wide base, makes it great for balance and imaginary play.
LeapFrog Musial Rainbow Tea Set
This rainbow tea party set is the coolest gift idea for a one year old girl because IT LIGHTS UP! This illuminated tea set lights up in 6 different colors inside.
There are 6 different corresponding cake slice colors to go with the colors on the tea pot. Each of the cake pieces has a different fruit on top, the yellow has a lemon, the pink has a strawberry, the purple has a plum, the orange of course has an orange, the green has a lime and blue a blueberry.
This little tea pot entertaining and educational because it introduces children to colors, numbers, shapes and sharing.&
Fisher Price Barbie Quad
This Barbie Quad is a ridiculously awesome gift for 1 year old girls. Freedom and adventure is at the touch of their finger tips at such young age (I’m sorta jealous).
This battery-powered ride on toy features cool Barbie graphics, a storage rack and really nice footrests for safety and comfort.
This quad is really easy to steer and make go. No prior driving skills required 😉
It will go up to 2mph. For the price, its a great gift idea for a one year old girl.
Step2 Push Around Buggy
This is a sweet ride for a one year old girl as she’s cruising through the neighborhood or park. My 1 year old girl absolutely loved to ride in this buggy, we would go all over the place with it because she felt like she was driving her own little car.
This pink car stroller has a little horn for her honk as she passes her friends and neighbors down the street. The long handle makes it easy to push for me and there’s some storage under the hood for taking along goldfish crackers or a juice box.
This push stroller is built to last, we’ve left ours outside many times and its still in great shape after a couple years of use.
Baby’s First Tablet
I love these tablet toys because I can shove them in the diaper bag and take them with me. They make good busy toys for your one year old girls in the car, in waiting rooms and other areas where busy babies need to be kept occupied for a few a little while. The colorful buttons and learning games are great for their age and it’s an easy toy to pack up and take with you.
