    Christmas ideas for a 1-year-old?

    DS's birthday is today, and his party is this Sunday. I have a pretty good idea of what he's getting--a toy laptop, "real" keys (so he'll stop stealing ours!), this [ame=""]toy block wagon[/ame], cars, fridge magnets, and a chunky puzzle. For Christmas my brother got him this steering wheel/car console toy.

    We already have blocks and a gazillion Little People sets (saved from DD) as well as books. We have a shape sorter, a stacking toy, and things like stacking cups. I'd prefer no DVDs, although maybe I'm kidding myself.

    He loves the bath--any bath toy recommendations?

    I do know one gift will be music-related. Would love recs for that. Band-in-a-box type things. We saw a few sets at Cost Plus.

    We do 1 gift under $50 and 2 gifts under $25. So I don't need a whole ton of things.

    We have no space for anything large like a kitchen. How about walking toys (he cruises like crazy but lacks the confidence to stand or walk independently)? Are they worth the money?

    Some type of pounding toy (the ones with pegs or balls you pound through)?
    A mini football
    Toddler sled
    Kids music CDs
    Cars (my 1yo loved Hot Wheels)
    Leapfrog Potsy
    Hide and Squeak Eggs
    Wheely Bug
    Tool kit - bonus points if it has a working drill or saw
    An old cell phone with the battery removed
    Leapfrog fridge magnet toys
    Corn popper push toy
