Mothercare Baby Walker
Advantages: Very nice to look at
Disadvantages: Hard to move
We were recently given this walker by my aunt. My little cousin had never got on with it and hated being in it so it was in perfect condition. If I was reviewing this walker based purely on looks it would be 5 out of 5. It is very attractive. Ours is pink which is perfect for our little girl. The walker is designed to look like a car. It has a lot of attention to detail, even having little wheels on the back.It is a very chunky walker, probably designed with safety in mind. It is impossible to fit through our doorways so she can't escape from us. On the downside though this makes it very hard for her to move.
Amelia is 15 months now and has been using a cheapy asda walker since she was 6 months and has been able to whizz around in it. This one however she really struggles to move in and ends up going sideways like a crab. I'm not surprised my cousin disliked it as I fail to see how a small baby could move it successfully at all. It really is very cumbersome.
There is a play tray attached which has a furry dice, a steering wheel and a book attached to it. Amelia likes to play with this but she still prefers the freedom her cheapy gives her. It is very bulky and takes up alot of room even when folded.
All in all although this walker is very attractive it isn't really fit for purpose. Amelia can't run around in it like she does with her cheapy and if you've got any furniture in the way it's impossible for them to manoeuvre around it. We have now put it in the shed to use outside in the garden so she has a bit more freedom in it. When I looked up the price of this I was appalled it retails at nearly £100. Amelias Cheapy one was from asda and cost just £25 and is far, far better. Save your money!
Summary: Save your money
