My little girl is at that age now where she has mastered crawling and has now started to pull herself up on pretty much anything she can grab hold of, because she gets so excited when she is standing up we decided it was time to buy her a baby walker.
After looking around the internet I was amazed at the masses of different baby walkers available, we knew we wanted one she could sit in (she is not stable enough to use a push along one yet), so we narrowed the search down to those, in the end we ended up on Amazon as they seemed to have a very good selection and all at various price ranges.
After having a good at the features of each one we settled on the Tippitoes Baby Walker, this was for various reasons, the first being its cool looking as it's a car shape and the other main reason was because it folds down reasonably flat so it can be stored away when not in use.
This baby walker is a nice girly pink colour with a cream seat with pink checks, as I said before is in the shape of a car so on the front you have stickers which are the headlights & indicators and the toy tray comprises of a steering wheel, starting leaver, red & blue lights (flash like a police car) and three buttons - two play tunes and the other is the horn, there is also a ball she can spin around, not sure what it has to do with a car but she loves it. The toy tray is also removable; sometimes we take it off & we stick her toys that have suction cups on in its place.
The walker has two small wheels on the front which turn in any direction to enable your child to move the car and it has two larger wheels on the back. The base of the walker is made of a sturdy plastic so if your child bumps into anything it won't break, it also has plastic inserts underneath so the walker will not runaway down hills (we didn't use these are we don't intend on sending our child down a hill in it).
The seat has three adjustable heights, our girl is 8 months old and on the lowest setting she can just about touch the floor to push herself along so it probably would not be suitable for a child any younger
Making the car:
The car came to us in bits so we had to build it, it was fairly easy to put together, most of it just clicks into place, the main problem we had was fitting the seat, the seat has a ridged back to it and this makes clicking the seat into place very hard because you cant get you fingers into the small space to push the clips in, it took us about 30 mins to get the seat to fit right (that's two of us trying), other than that everything else is straight forward.
The walker is 71cm x 64 cm, when locked in position is stands 51cm tall and when folded flat its 25cm tall
Overall I would say this was a very good purchase, my little girl loves sitting in it and although she can only go backwards at the moment I'm sure it won't be long before she is whizzing around the house.
She can operate all of the toys on the tray apart from the hooter in the middle of the steering wheel, you have to push it quickly to make it work & she has not got the hang of it just yet. I think her favorite bits are the spiny ball and the leaver which when pushed makes a engine starting noise (not my favorite though especially when she just pushes and pulls it constantly for 20 mins).
Its also very handy to know that when I put her in it I know that if I leave the room she will still be in it when I get back, rather than under the table, climbing into her toy box or turning on the PS3 and surround sound etc.
I love the fact that when she is not in it I can just close it up and stick it behind the sofa so its not in the way of her playing with her other toys.
I bought his from Amazon for £37.99 (with free delivery) and found it to be one of the cheaper ones on the internet as most walkers seem to cost between £45 - £60
