Brooke Burke Seeking Toy Suggestions For Shaya

Shopping for 1-year-old boys can be tough, when so many toys are geared toward new babies or older toddlers. That’s the predicament Brooke Burke and David Charvet found themselves in when holiday shopping for their son Shaya Braven, 10-months next week. “We are such a girl’s house that we have been struggling trying to find the right toys for Shaya,” the 37-year-old Dancing With the Stars winner wrote on her blog Dec. 21. “If anyone has any great suggestions for 1-year-old boys, I would love to hear them.” At least one present appears to have been a hit, however. “David just bought [Heaven] Rain [turning 2 next week] and Shaya the cutest electric train that she can drive around the house while Shaya sits in the back.”

Their family of six– which includes 8 ½-year-old Neriah and 6 ½-year-old Sierra Sky from Brooke’s previous marriage — made their fair share of presents, as well. The kids created “abstract paintings” for extended family members, using cards, ribbon, material and paper scraps and glue. Writes Brooke,

“I asked Neriah and Sierra to draw a simple self portrait and then decorate it with all their supplies. It ends up being a beautiful self portrait inspired collage. Rain at 2-yrs-old can make some amazing art too. I frame them and they are as beautiful as any of the other art in my home.”

With Christmas over, Brooke and her brood have moved on to the mountains to ring in the New Year. “I can’t think of a better way to finish off 2008,” Brooke writes. “I went sledding with Neriah today, so fun!”
