  • you can start with shape sorters, simple puzzles, even a couple of boxes and a variety of small objects for sorting (i.e. people in one box, cars in the other) or just for putting things in and out of.

  • My youngest son started doing those same things at around 11 or 12 months also. He has 2 older brothers he has to keep up with. My other 2 boys did nothing like this at this age. My son loves nesting blocks and tries to stack them up as high as he can so he can knock them to the ground. He also tries to manipulate big puzzle pieces. We have many of the Melissa&Doug toys. They have these neat sound puzzles. Some even have lights. Another game we have that Donovan loves is the LeapFrog barn where you have to match the farm animals front and back sides. Then it will sing a song about the animal. I hope these suggestions help:)
