Gifts for a one year old?

Alright, so my niece's one year birthday party is coming up on Sunday, and I have no idea what to get for her. I've already axed the idea of clothing as she is so small that she's still wearing her 6 month old clothing. I already bought her books for Christmas, so I guess that leaves toys?? What the heck makes for an appropriate toy for a one year old??

Something that they can drag around and makes a ton of noise. Guaranteed that the kid will love it and the parents will hate you forever...

can't go wrong with wooden building blocks, both boys and girls love these things.....good for learning colors, letters, building coordination....also safe and easy to clean up.

I remember my clueless brother showed up with a makeup kit for 8+ at my daughters 2 year old b-day.

If their parents have set up some kind of college savings account you can always make a deposit into the account. It's not fun, but they won't remember anyway.

Oh yeah, they love loud toys, my kids grew up thinking that batteries only lasted a couple hours..... The were not replaceable. Disposable toys.
