Fisher Price Walk and Ride Lion
Advantages: Fisher Price Quality and Entertaining aswell as Versitile
I decided to buy one of these after seeing it on offer at Tesco's Direct. I had a £5 off toys code which I had found online and managed to get 2 for just £20 delivered to my local Tesco's so I bought one for a friend of mine who also had a baby the same age as mine.
It made a fantastic Christmas present, especially for just £10! I mean what can you buy these days for a tenner? Not this much quality of a toy!
***What it does? ***
When you buy this toy you have to assemble the legs which does not take too long at all. The lion is brightly coloured with fabric type hair at the top.
This is a fantastic toy as it is versatile to use from approx 12 months. Your baby can use it as a walker as you can adjust the back of the seat to sit up by slotting it in place bringing the handle up, or you can use it as a toy to sit on and push with your feet.
When you press the nose of the lion it lights up and starts to sing, and make a lot of noise but there is also a setting to make the music quieter or louder depending on how long you can take the noise, I would say it is not too annoying but like all kids toys these days they seem to make a noise.
***What my son thought of it? ***
I am really bigging up Fisher Price toys I think they are very strong and hard wearing and they seem to see things from the child's perspective. Which is what you want in a toy.
My son was about 9 months or so when I bought this for him, so he was a tad too young, especially as he was not even crawling yet, but my friend's baby was walking at this age so it all depends on the development of your baby and how mobile they are. They suggest it's for 1 years plus though.
My son is now 18 months and uses this toy when I get it out for him, he likes to climb on the lion and sit on him too pushing along with his legs, and it's at just the right height and also he can't get his feet stuck under like some baby sit on walkers.
He also loves to push the lion, as he can only walk a little and this helps build the strength in his legs really well. It's an enjoyable toy and my son is also a bit of a dancer so he loves all the songs and music. There is a quite a variety to keep your little one amused.
There are also some beads on the left and right hand side of the lion; these are probably more attractive to the younger baby more than toddler.
I would rate this walker 10/10 especially for the price of £10 I have paid for this but the standard rrp is between £25-30 although toys are us are selling this for £39.99 which in my opinion is over the top.
If you are in the market for a baby walker then this is a definite one to consider, not only does it act as a baby walker but your child can sit on it too. It's versatile and not too big so stores really easy and with it being Fisher Price the quality is brilliant and it has good resale value if you are an eBay queen like me.
We actually have 2 baby walkers the other being the Vtech which is also another brilliant walker, both of which are good and different in their own ways, I will do a review on this one later today.
This toy requires 3 x AA batteries and is widely available but give the internet a good search as there is always a good deal to be had or have a look on eBay as these sell pretty cheap.
Summary: 10/10 for Baby walker and ride on
