Cute and practical, baby walkers are a fun way to help give your toddler the confidence to start taking their first steps.

Cute and practical, baby walkers are a fun way to help give your toddler the confidence to start taking their first steps. Not all children start crawling or walking at the same time and it can be harder for some than others. Introducing a walker can give them the extra stimulation or confidence they might need when walking and allow you to have some hands-free (and back-bending free) time off from holding their little hands as they take those rocky steps. Read on for our tips on the 4 best baby walkers to try in 2022.

What is a baby walker?

A baby walker is a tool used by children to push around their house as they start walking. Traditional walkers saw babies planted inside dome shaped walkers with wheels that would move around the house. We should be clear that we are talking about safe alternatives to these and using our baby walkers for children who are already walking and not for infants who are unable to walk yet.

What age can my child use a baby walker?

Baby walkers are designed for toddlers aged from 9 months or older, depending on when your baby is starting to walk. It’s really important to not give a child who doesn’t know how to walk a walker as they can injure themselves or impede their walking learning process. Once your little one is taking steps, it’s a good time to introduce a walker.

Do I really need an activity walker?

An activity walker is of course not an absolute essential when it comes to baby gear. However, they are a ton of fun and children normally get a lot of enjoyment out of using them around the house! In particular, young children enjoy walkers with trays where they can fill the tray with their favourite dolls, toys or treasures and cart them around the house. The dolls style walker prams are also a hit given babies love to model their parents’ behaviour.

What to look for in a child walker?

There are many things to consider when choosing the right baby walker. Some important features to keep in mind include:

  • Safety: Consider choosing a walker with brakes as an additional safety precaution.
  • Weight: Make sure the walker you choose isn’t too heavy for your toddler to push around.
  • Rubber wheels: We would only ever buy a walker if it had soft rubber wheels in case of any accidents with little feet and ankles. It will also help to protect your walls and furniture.
  • Non toxic materials: Remember babies like to put things in their mouth all the time, so it’s a good idea to look out for walkers made of non toxic paints.
