I have to say, that overall I have been really disappointed with the lack of choice on offer when it comes to baby walkers. There were none that really screamed ‘buy me’ and to be honest I felt like everything was very gender stereotypical rather than being neutral.
After looking in a few shops and weighing up prices and value for money, we found this plane design walker from Mothercare. Although I originally wanted something that would suit both boys and girls (in case a little girl came along in the future), I simply couldn’t resist this when I saw how happy Archie was cruising around in it.
I mean, just look at how happy he is?
As the title suggests, this walker is a 2-in-1 piece of kit, featuring a push along function as well as a walker. That way if your little one needs some gentle encouragement to get their feet moving, you can try pushing them around in it to start. This will also be a convenient feature if you need to move it from one room to another with ease.
There’s some really cute features on this walker, like the spinning propellors, beeping horn, music and flashing buttons. All of which really stimulate your baby’s senses.
After seeing Archie improve so much in his jumperoo, we knew he was ready for a walker, but we have been so surprised at how much he’s grown in strength in a little under a week. He’s now at the point where he can lift himself up and stand for a few seconds – an amazing achievement for a five month old baby!
Overall at just £40, this walker was a fantastic value for money purchase, especially because a lot of others on the market are well over £60. And considering it’s been put through its paces already, it’s withstanding all the bumps a baby learning to walk can throw at it!
Did your little one love using a walker?
