BOOKS, puzzles, megabloks if she doesnt already have them, a new cuddle toy.  1 year olds are so easy , they are usually happy just unwrapping a present, no toy needed to be inside of the box LOL.

If you want a leap frog product this one i would suggest.  My dd who is 6 says she wants it even though she is too old. ...... http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3719288

Water table!!! They are so awesome for that age group! I used to teach in an early preschool class (13-18 months) and that was their favorite activity. You can fill them with paper, felt, balls.... Endless activities! And they are about $40 at Walmart and amazon!

My daughter got one of these at 8 months for her first Christmas and at 2 1/2 still loves it. The only problem is she will get off to do something in public and I wont be paying much attention to it until I look down and discover a stranger's kid sitting on it who I am pushing away from the parents. Yikes sorry! It just draws kids.

The Leap Pad is excellent! Definitely a winner.

Have you ever seen the Little Leap? That would be a good companion toy for your daughter.

Another good one is this electronic toy that has a map of the world. The children can touch major countries and (depending on what you have set on it at the time), hear music from there, hear someone saying "Hello" or "Good morning" or something in that language, the name of the country and its capital... It's much cooler and more advanced than the old animal spinner thing, IMO.

I also agree with the water table, but make sure they can't tip it.

Also building blocks, books, a box of old clothes from the thirft store for dress ups, puzzles... Basically, I'm naming the most popular toys we had in the preschool classrooms.
