Push Toys for 1 Year Old
Almost as soon as my boys had learned to walk they also love to push around all kinds of toys including shopping trolleys, walkers, ride on toys and pushchairs. Some of the toys they love to push around are covered in other articles on the website including walkers and ride on toys. This article gives a few more suggestions of great push toys for 1 year olds and up.
From around 17 months, the shopping trolley used to be one of my eldest son's favorite toys. He used to love pushing his shopping trolley round and round the house. He would fill it up with all kinds of things (his teddies, trains, cars and other toys). As he got older uses his shopping trolley for all kinds of role play too.
Another toy my boys loved was a pushchair. They have them at the toddler groups we go to and they would spend ages pushing them around. In fact, all the boys used to seem to like pushing them around, perhaps more than the girls.
Don't worry about the doll so much though. It makes me laugh how my youngest son throws the doll out fo the pushchair before he starts pushing it arounds. Although maybe other boys might be a bit more affectionate towards a teddy or a doll!
