  • if the kid is only 1... I would go monkey.. it's a little cuter, and fits his age.. turning 3 or older.. go baseball.

  • Both ideas are greata, but I really like the monkey theme best. It seems a bit more unique to me. I would also want to save the baseball theme for a time when he will enjoy it more. Even though he loves baseball now, he will really love all the great ideas you have planned when he is older. :)
