For Ella's 1st birthday we bought her a bounce and spin zebra and a trampoline. My family just got her clothes - as she needed new stuff anyway. Neil's family bought her crappy toys that tbh she has never even looked at - but that is mu in laws for you. Always have to make everything a contest - in this case who could buy the most for Ella!
If you look at the photos of Ella;s birthday - she found her wellies from my sis the best present. Wore them everywhere and had a major tantrum being made to take them off to go to bed!
Ella still plays with her bounce and spin zebra to this day (and is now 2 and half) She never really played with the trampoline - probably because she has terrible gross motor skills and has only learnt how to jump in the last 2 or 3 weeks
