What is a Baby Walker

A baby walker is a special vehicle designed for infants who are just about to make their first steps. Most baby activity walkers are based on a plastic frame with swiveling wheels that move around the house when a baby steps forward. It’s one of the best ways to entertain a baby and give a child some kind of mobility whilst he or she cannot walk on his/her own. Parents love the fact that baby walkers are equipped with music and colorful attached toys that not only stimulate a child to move, but also keep him or her entertained for quite a while. Since 1440s when a baby walker was introduced to the people for the first time, it’s become a very popular baby product, frequently bought all over the world.

Years go by fast and you won't even notice that it is time to buy your little one a tricycle! It is a great way to entertain your kids and help them develop at the same time.

What Features to Compare

The foremost thing most parents pay attention to when they go to the kids’ shop is a variety of toys and colors for sale. They find it difficult to hold back and not pamper a little one with a new lovely doll or a teddy bear. The same goes about baby activity walkers. Most of them look pretty similar. They are bright in color and equipped with some interactive panel. From the first sight, you’d struggle to spot a difference. However, there are certainly a few important things worth knowing before buying the one.

There are two types of baby walkers for babies - with a seat and without it. The Construction of the first one is designed for infants who can’t walk on their own. Sitting in a seat, a little baby will have an option to navigate around the house and have a rest whenever he or she gets tired. The second type is designed for older kids who can already walk on their own but for some reason lack confidence and stability. Such baby walkers will quickly learn them to keep the balance and confidently walk.

We’d also like to draw your attention to the Safety Options and Fit that a baby walker provides. The width of a seat, the height of construction and wheels are all those criteria that determine how sturdy or not a walker would be. Look for the unit equipped with the clamps. This is a small, but important detail that ensures safety of a child on the go. A lot of parents attach significance to Interaction Features aimed to entertain a kid. There’s a big variety of toys and buttons attached to the walker that would certainly come to liking of a child, however buying a walker with all bells and whistles may become a serious problem later on. Soon you may find out that your child refuses to move on his or her own and spends too much time in a seat (which can negatively affect his/her health). We’d recommend you to seek for a golden mean - something interesting but not that much to discourage a child from any self-activity.

A Small Step for a Man

Almost every boy dreams of a car. Okay, you are right: every boy dreams of his own car. Your kid will feel like a real driver by running in this awesome activity walker around the house. The walker has got all funny components that imitate a real car - a steering wheel, a rearview mirror for looking around, a transmission handle that makes a car engine sound.

Plus and Minuses of Walkers

There are some controversy talks about the implication of a baby walker in a learning process of standing and walking. On one hand, you encourage your kid to explore the world around more actively, because he can observe and reach for more things from an elevated position. Besides, a lot of activity walkers come with toys and a tray to play with. Undoubtedly, these things help a lot in child's development. Also, the tray serves as a dining table, expanding walker usefulness even further. On the other hand, some pediatricians recommend using walkers only about 30 minutes a day. Don't forget to keep your kid from dangerous zones like the stairs and fireplaces. Remember, that a child requires constant adults' supervision. If you keep that in mind, then we are sure both you and your darling will have only positive emotions from using a walker.
