Fisher Price Walk and Ride Lion
Advantages: colourful, interactive nose, can use as walker or ride on toy, long battery life
Disadvantages: can be pretty expensive in some shops!
We got this toy as a Christmas present for my son. He was still 6 months then so he couldnt really use it. It stayed in a corner until he was about 8 months and started to take an interest in it. At that stage he wasnt actually cruising so couldnt use it as a walker but he enjoyed being held on it and he discovered the nose before I did. I didnt get given this in a box so hadnt looked at any intructions so I didnt even know it was interactive until he kept pressing a button and i realised it must do something!
The button of course lights up and plays a tune and makes the lion go roar. My son enjoys pressing it and then dancing along to the tune now hes 18 months. He doesnt need a walker anymore but still asks to play with it sometimes.
The nose was a key feature for my son right from the start, when he was younger he'd want to push it constantly!
The lion is bright yellow with a purple nose, pink cheeks and orange mane. He has a red seat on his back with a purple handle for the walking function. At the bottom he has 4 big blue wheels. I think his bright colours are quite attractive to babies/toddlers.
The lion has some orange felt in place of a mane which has never really bothered my son although some babies may like touching and feeling it. Unfortunatly over the year its become a little grubby looking.
The red seat has some raised circles on it which adds grip to a slippery baby in a babygro but also is a nice sensory touch for those touchy feely babies!
It has a function where it can be laid flat to ride on or propped up to push along. My son loves this but doesnt understand why you have to change it and has tried to ride it while the seat has been slanted or push it when the handle is flat!
I like that you can ride and push this as the ride along function is great for those babies who arent able to walk yet and for those who are but like to ride around on toys instead.
It is reccomended from 12months+ but with supervision my son used it before then. Once he was able to walk with a walker around 10/11 months he'd occasionally push this one around and it was very sturdy so there were no falls.
The toy takes 3xAA batteries. These were already put in when it was given to me and have never needed to be replaced so I'd say the battery life is fantastic!
Id definitly shop around for this lion- Ive seen them going for around £15-£20 before. Theyre currently pretty expensive on Amazon (the used one is listed at £39!!) I wouldnt pay anymore than £20 for this toy I mean its good but its not over £20 good!
Summary: Great toy but shop around to get best price.
