Chicco DJ Walker Seventy
Advantages: Lots to do, music, sounds, lights etc, keeps little one occupied
Disadvantages: Not easy for baby to walk in, not liquid-proof
My partner and I bought this DJ walker for our son as, firstly, we found it on eBay locally for a good price, and secondly because it looked like fun, with all the music buttons etc.
Our boy does love playing in his and bashing all the buttons, which can either play jazzed-up nursery rhymes or sound effects (animal noises, drums etc). The buttons are back-lit with LEDS, and there are knobs to grab etc, so there's plenty to do. It has proved invaluable, either as entertainment while we wash up, or to sit and press all the buttons with him. He still gets a lot of enjoyment out of it.
As a walker I'd rate this as average. It works fine in on the lino in the kitchen, but at 8 months old he still does struggle in the carpeted living room. In fact he can only really get it to move by bouncing repeatedly, so it kind of jiggles along. I think maybe the whole thing is too big and bulky to be used for this purpose.
Another downside is that I don't think it has been tested with baby vomit! The buttons aren't particularly water-tight, and after puking on it one time the tunes all went hay-wire, and wouldn't stop! I had to dismantle and clean the electronics inside. Thankfully it worked once it had dried out, and hasn't happened since.
Overall we're pleased with this, and use it a lot. Maybe some improved seals on the buttons would be a good idea for future models.
Summary: Useful with lots of stimulating activities
