Advantages: Removeable play tray, fully collapsible.
Disadvantages: Large as are most walkers.
We brought this walker after watching it being demonstrated by 'Kiddicare' on 'You Tube'. Before seeing this we hadn't realised quite how cleverly designed it was.
For starters the toy tray with the flashing lights and knobs is removeable and underneath it is scooped out - perfect for holding snacks for the baby, and without any ridges or holes on the tray it makes it easy to wipe clean.
On the left of the play tray is a switch which allows you to select one of two volumes (loud and very loud!) and off. There are five keyboard keys decorated with animal pictures which light up and make the relevant animal sound. In the middle is a plastic 'song book' which can be flipped to change the tune, there is a drum button and three other knobs to play with and move.
As the tray was removable we were able to use it on the floor for the few months up until our little one was able to use the walker. N.B. babies are not supposed to walk in the walker until they are 6 months old and (I believe) they must also be able to place their feet flat to the floor.
The seat cover is washable, though it is made of a very thick fabric and so requires some considerable drying time. I have put ours through the wash and it didn't shrink or bobble and it held it's shape.
The whole product is collapsible and so easy to store under a bed or cot, though it is still long and wide so (depending on your cot width) it might stick out a little?
The headlights (seen in the above picture) are for decoration only, and note, the walkers wheels do not lock. There are also six 'stopper' built into the walker by the wheels which is meant to stop the walker from going down the stairs meaning that it conforms to 'EU Standards'. I have not tested these and neither would I would let my baby near the stairs while in the walker!
Summary: A good buy.
