ELC Wooden Toddle Truck
Advantages: Brightly coloured and sturdy, a lovely toy
Disadvantages: None really, just it only goes in a straight line
I bought this toddle truck for my daughter for her first birthday as she was able to cruise round the furniture and walk if she was holding someone's hand. She seemed very reluctant to even try and walk on her own so I wanted increase her confidence and independence by showing her she could walk around without a person to hold onto!
The truck itself is made of wood and is nicely painted in bright colours (I think it comes in various colours) and comes with about 25 blocks of different colours and shapes which all slot together nicely in the truck. The truck is designed in such a way that a child can pull themselves up to stand using the push bar and the truck will not topple over. It also has grips on the wheels so it will not slide whilst they are getting up and will not move too fast, even if they put their whole weight on it.
My daughter absolutely loved her truck and as soon as she saw it, she knew exactly what to do with it and she was off! She was so chuffed with being able to do it by herself, although it did not inspire her to try walking on her own any sooner, but it did save my back from leaning over to have her hold my hands all the time!
The only downside is that the wheels are completely straight so if your child is more confident at pusing or is already walking independently, it is quite difficult to do anything other than walk in a straight line. Having said that, my daughter figured out how to lift it even before she could walk independently so it's not really a big deal!
My daughter is now 2 years old and I am packing it away for (hopefully!) future children to play with as she is more into pushing her dolly pushchair or her trolley!
Summary: A great toy to encourage independence in pre walkers
