I have a 1 year old and like you, I wanted her to have a baby doll for her 1st birthday present. So I got her a Baby Annabell from the UK.
She is the least interested in her doll or any dolls for that matter. I was then told dolls are of no interest to girls till they reach 2 1/2 years old or so.
She much prefers to play with her Fisher Price toys that have play music. She enjoys turning on the music on her own and seeing the flashing lights, and clapping away.
Toy R Us has the widest range of Fisher Price toys, if you are interested.
ELC (Early Learning Centre) at Paragon sells a lot of age appropriate developmental toys and I like shopping there. The store is tiny compared to the ones in UK. It does not have the whole range of toys but you can certainly find something for a 1 year old.
