Fisher Price Baby Walker
Advantages: Not too expensive
Disadvantages: Won't bear baby's weight
My daughter was bought this baby walker for her first Christmas. At that point in time she was only three months old, so not quite ready for it! By around seven months of age she was starting to try and pull herself up, so I decided to take this out of it's packet.
This was a self assemble product which required a very specific screwdriver. The screws were not particularly small but the space in which the screws were fixed meant that you needed a really short screwdriver, so that it would fit in the available space. Once I had finally dealt with that, I had to put the 'harness' on the front of the buggy. This required a bit of brute force to ensure that the plastic popped into the holes correctly; unfortunately, this never quite worked on my daughter's walker and to this day there is a piece of plastic which I am constantly trying to force back into place. Needless to say, I was not too impressed with the assembly of this product.
Quality and use
There are different types of plastic toys available to buy, which vary widely in quality. Having grown up with the 'fisher price' name, I expected more from this product. The plastic is lightweight. This may be fabulous for other toys, but by its very nature, a baby walker needs to support the weight of a child; this baby walker would not support the weight of my (not too heavy) daughter. In addition to this, the plastic wheels would not turn when the toy was being used on the carpets, so it would essentially be dragged along the floor.
I realise that I have moaned an awful lot about this product, but it does have some benefits. My daughter loves playing with it, and now that she can walk confidently, loves to push it around the house. It also has a small bear toy, which attaches near the handle bar. The bear plays music, often causing baby to pause mid play for a little boogie.
At around £17, this is not too expensive. However, you are expected to buy the doll separately, which retails at around £8.
Summary: Cute as a toy, but it doesn't make a good walker.
