When it comes to toys (and pretty much everything), my fourteen month old really wants to exert her independence. She wants to take control and feel empowered. If it was up to my stubborn little lady, she'd be able to master her brother’s Lego sets and use all of his “big boy” toys—despite her very limited fine motor skills.

It includes animal-themed playthings, with names such as Laffy Giraffy, Jiggypotamus and Have It All Ball, whcih all incorporate learning and interactive activities.
