Pros: fun toy, great motivator for walking
My younger daughter just had her first birthday a few weeks ago and she received this toy as one of her gifts from us.
2 in 1 Singing Band Walker
This walker can play music while the child is walking (if in standing mode) or the child can play music sitting in front of the walker (if in sitting mode). The walker itself is white with orange handles, a green base, and blue wheels. The music side of the walker is very colorful. It has a red guitar with a yellow switch that can move back and forth. There is a small book in the middle that the pages can go from left to right. There is a yellow smiley face that has a purple button to press which makes a beeping sound. Below these three things there are three more. There is an orange/purple dial to turn in a circle. Then there are four piano keys (red, orange, yellow, and green) that play music. Finally there is a spinner in which you can turn the smiley face around. These different types of musical options that use different fine motor skills.
This can be found at ToysRus for $32.
The age recommendation for this toy is 6 months and older.
This toy needs 3 AA batteries that are included with the toy.
My one year old is just starting to get the hang of walking and loves this toy. We used this as a motivator to try to walk away from holding onto the couch and out on her own. It worked. She would step away while holding this and start pushing this around the room. She really loves that this has music that plays as she walks. Sometimes she is so cute she will just stop and shake her booty to the music. She is almost always giggling while she is with this toy.
She also likes to sit in from of the toy and play the different music things on the front of the walker. There are many different sounds and activities between the walking mode and sitting mode switch. This toy will captivate her attention for a bit which is impressive since she is only 1.
We like this toy and we highly recommend this to other. If you are trying to help your child gain confidence to walk more on their own this may help!
