If your baby is anywhere from 10 months -1 1/2 years old, it’s time to start getting them to walk! We did a great story on how to encourage your baby to walk, which you can read here. There are also toys you can get to help encourage your kiddos to get off the ground and moving; we’ve rounded up our five favorites below and created an Amazon storefront with all the items linked so you can pick which one's the right one for your kiddo!
VTech’s Sit-to-Stand Learning Walkeris the holy grail when it comes to teaching your kids how to walk. It’s great because when they are at the crawling phase, they can play with the front portion and when you are actually encouraging them to walk, they can hold onto the walker and start cruising. Talk about a two-for-one!
Melissa & Doug Chomp & Clack Alligator Push Toy is a good, sturdy and engaging walker that actually makes noises when your child is pushing it. The more your kid pushes the alligator, the more sound it makes, which will probably drive parents a little bit crazy (as all noisy toys do!); however, your baby will absolutely love it. Anything for the kids, right? Right!
HABA Discovery Wagon is another one of our favorites because if your baby is tired of walking around, he/she can take a break and sit on the wagon, as it comes with a cute little chair. It also looks like a car, so it’s a definite plus for kiddos who are obsessed with cars or anything with wheels!
Bright Starts Giggling Gourmet Shop 'n Cook Walkeris not only super-cute, it can be used even after your baby starts walking! Let’s be real here — your baby has probably been to the grocery store with you, and you KNOW whatever mom and dad are doing, baby wants to do, too. This little cart will definitely get them up and on the move! And since this walker is a 4-in-1 toy, you can actually buy it early on and it will grow with them.
ALEX Toys ALEX Jr. Jungle Fun Activity Cartnot only helps encourage walking, but it also helps with the development of your child’s motor skills, too! Plus, it’s bright, engaging, and includes an activity cart so your child is always entertained and learning something new.
