Minimagpie 9-12 Month Wishlist.

Mini is just about to turn 9 months old, so I thought I’d share the items I’m eyeing for her right now (and P.S. — her 3-6 month wishlist here):

+Adorable winter booties with a lamb’s face ($69).  I’m having a hard time picking between the styles from this brand, but the lambs are beyond.

The Fashion Magpie Donsje Amsterdam

+Christmas books!  I had to have the Spot one, but I also ordered the perennial classic, “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” which my Dad used to read to us.  I also need something that communicates the religious side of Christmas, so this one, which I’ve gifted to several godchildren as an addition to a fun toy gift for Christmas, is in my basket.

+This is my number one wishlist item for mini — I think it’s perfect for her right now.  She can sit in front of it and play for hours, and also pull herself up with it/walk with it as she learns.  Yes, it’s hideous, but I’ve learned the long and hard way that the tackier and plastick-ier, the better.  Speaking of, this shape sorter is also on her list.  I had ruminated on getting a wooden Melissa and Doug one a few posts back, and several of you commented/emailed to say that the Fisher Price OG is the way to go.  In that vein, this?  Or this?

The Fashion Magpie Vtech Sit to Stand

+My mother-in-law gifted mini a set of nesting wooden blocks that belonged to Mr. Magpie, and mini LOVES them.  They are actually this exact set I found on Etsy (!!!), but this set by Melissa + Doug is similar.  Mini loves to sit and bang them together, knock them over, and just hold them in her hands.   And speaking of wood toys, I am obsessed with this for when she’s walking around!

+I just ordered mini this chic and breathable sleepsack as a back up to the Aden + Anais one she’s worn for months now.  I’ve been meaning to get a second for some time because I put her in it during naps and at night, which makes washing it something of a timing challenge.

The Fashion Magpie Burts Bees Sleepsack

+I order multiples of these Peter Pan collared bodysuits for mini as she enters a new size — they are the perfect layering piece for under dresses, overalls, etc., and the SOFTEST pima cotton.  I got a lot of questions about what she was wearing in the snap above, which I posted to Instagram just before we headed to the Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden, and it was one of these bodysuits underneath one of these monogrammed corduroy overalls.

+I want to order her some new bath toys — this is on my list.  (More great baby bathtime gear here.)  I’ll store them all in here.

The Fashion Magpie Boon Bath Toy

+Not particularly exciting, but I need a new bottle brush — the bristles on her old one by Avent got all bent and out of wack — and this one gets good reviews.  OXO always has such a smart design!  Speaking of OXO, this has also been in my cart now that I’m feeding mini cut up blueberries and grapes.  Timesaver!  And I’ll feed her these bits of grape out of this mat.

The Fashion Magpie EZ Mat

+For on-the-go Puff enjoyment, I read way too many reviews on snack catchers, and these ones by Munchkin are the clear winner.

The Fashion Magpie Snack Catcher

+Thanks very much to the mom who suggested Dapple for bottle-cleaning!  Much more powerful than the castile soap we’d been using!

The Fashion Magpie Dapple Soap

+I’ve gotten some great jammies recently from Gap.  They’ve sold out of my favorites, which had nutcrackers all over them, but these are precious.  They’re a good, soft cotton and I am obsessed with the zip over the buttons.  So much easier.

+I think mini’s too young for a babydoll, but the classic Carolle baby is at the top of my list when she gets old enough.

+I’m ordering a new pair or two of Sweet N Swag mocs.  They actually stay on mini’s feet!


  1. I ordered one of the Corolle minis and another soft doll from Doudou et compagnie for the baby’s Christmas present(s) – couldn’t decide between the two!

    And yes, definitely zippers over snaps for footed onesies – so much easier to put on a squirming baby!!!

  2. so many sweet baby memories rushing back! 1) the walker is amazing – you can save it, sell it or pass it along when she’s done. i have so many videos of lou dancing to the music (and it will haunt your dreams). it’s a great buy! 2) look at the janod wood shape sorter drum. it’s AMAZE (bright, but beautiful) and i gift it all of the time. major winner! and 3) when lou was mini’s age we got her one of the tiny corolle les minis and she toted it around everywhere. super sweet. – happy holidays to you guys!

    1. OMG! The Corolle minis!!! I added that to her Christmas shopping list 🙂 So so sweet. And that Janod drum! Thanks for introducing me to that brand — love their stuff! xo
