      Helping your baby learn to walk

      Every child’s development milestones will be different and walking journey unique. In general, babies begin to take their first steps from before their first birthday, others after their first birthday, at around 14 months. Most little ones start by being able to pull themselves up (around month 9 or 10) and cruise holding onto something – from your hand to a couch to coffee table. With this type of support, bub walks holding on. Many of our walkers are recommended for 12 months and up and are wagon push walkers with a handle (not sit-in walkers). Please read the manufacturer’s guidelines.

      Movement and play ideas to help your baby’s motor skills

      Our baby walkers are designed for bub’s movement and also feature a range of play ideas to help develop your baby’s motor skills. Some of the play ideas include an abacus, which encourages counting, sorting and concentration as well as develops fine motor skills. Spinning gears and bead runs also encourage fine motor skills. A mirror helps bub explore and learn to recognise their own face. Building blocks also help develop fine motor skills, spatial reasoning, hand-eye coordination, dexterity and problem solving and basic language and math skills if marked with letters and numbers.

      Popular colours and styles of walkers

      Our range of baby walkers are popular wagon walkers with a handle for bub to push and use as support as they learn to walk more confidently. Wagon walkers are different to traditional sit-in baby walkers as wagon walkers allow bub to walk in their natural standing position and bub is able to see their feet and develop a sense of balance. Our range of wagon walkers are available in brightly coloured wooden designs as well as softer colour palettes, including fun themes and ideas to develop bub’s play and motor skills.

      Keeping your baby walker clean

      Because wood is naturally microbial it means you don’t need to clean wood that often – compared to plastic. But because kids' toys can get dirty and dust can build up, if you want to keep your baby walker clean, either dust with a dry cloth to reduce dust build up or wipe over with a mild soap and water damp cloth, or even a mix of vinegar and water damp cloth.
