My only advice should you go firearm would be to stick with NERF.
There is a gun now that i saw at toys r us a couple of weeks ago,i cant remember the name but it takes these little clear balls that you add water to and they swell. It looks like a pretty cool gun, i was gonna pick one up for my son.. theres also another one that takes little paper bullets that you also add water to. Im not getting that one, i dont need spit wads stuck to everything.

Dang. We use to just chew on a tiny piece of paper and shoot it through our drinking straws. LOL

When my kids were little, there was an appliance store in town. I'd always pull the refrigerator boxes out from behind the store and bring it home. The kids played in those huge boxes day after day. After the boxes got rained on a time or two, it was time to start watching out for a new box again.

My kids always liked to draw or build stuff. A small desk was perfect! Kept the crap off the coffee table too.

That's too bad. My brother couldn't afford a car so he built this. It saved him a lot of money.

Um, folks? She's one year old. I would get her one of those oversize plastic key rings with multi-colored keys for her birthday and a puppy (from the pound) for Christmas if you are a dog family (not just you, but Mom too).

Don't you EVER get her one gift and say "This is your birthday present and your Christmas present." Never ever. Even if the second gift is just a token, give her one gift for each occasion. Then take the rest of what you would spend and set it aside somehow (buy some gold or silver or start a savings account if you trust the banks---).

At that age all they really want from you is love and attention. Give her those in great quantities every day of her life and you will be golden (don't spoil her though!)

As far as spoiled? Two words:

TOO LATE
