(Newser) – She may be too young to appreciate it, but Britain's Princess Charlotte has received an extraordinary array of birthday gifts. Kensington Palace officials say she received letters and gifts from 64 countries on her first birthday Monday. Some were early birthday presents given during recent state visits by world leaders, including President Obama, who with his wife Michelle gave Charlotte a jigsaw puzzle and a soft toy modeled on Bo, the White House dog.

British Prime Minister David Cameron gave the princess Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales, and the prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, sent a snowsuit and a book. New Zealand sent teddy bears, blankets, and booties of native wool; the Chinese gave her a set of silk figurines; and the president of Mexico sent a silver rattle. (The world also got a present for Charlotte's first birthday: new photos of the little princess.)
