I recently purchased this product for my 2 1/2 year old special needs son, whom refuses to walk. He is happy crawling everywhere but does occasionally like to walk (when it is his idea) with an adult holding his hands. I thought maybe this would be a waste of money, but so far it doesn't seem to be the case. My son's face lights up when I put him in this. He is so happy in this that he walks all over the house for 25 minutes before tiring of it!! He could never do that with me holding his hands for that long!! He has no balance at all, so I feel that this is definitely necessary for teaching him balance. I noticed that having the straps adjusted very low and close to his back, make him more stable and he has an easier time walking. Of course, I am hunched over, but who cares!! He is loving it and I am hoping and praying that some day he will be able to walk unassisted!!! I highly recommend this product for parents with special needs kids. This is a must have!

We were very excited to order the Walking Wings for our 8 month old. As soon as it arrived, we wrapped the walking wings around him, velcroed and snapped it shut, and then went about our first "walk." After only 3 steps, my son stumbled forward a bit. His stumble caused one of the fabric straps on the Walking Wings to rip totally off - a clean break at the seam. Our son immediately fell to the ground. Luckily, the fall was not hard, as the other strap remained in place. However, other babies may not be so lucky. We had this product a total of 3 minutes before it broke and put our son in harms way. I would not waste the money.

My dad bought this for my 9 month old son who loves to be on his feet and walk or chase around a soccer ball but since so young has very little balance even though he is really strong. After an afternoon of babsitting my dad's back was killing him so he thought this product would be great. My son loved the freedom he got from it and quite literally took off in it, but the problem is that bc it's not secure around the torso it can ride up under the armpits. Once I saw his arms turning purple bc of the blood restriction this caused it went back in the box and was returned. I've ordered the Juppy baby walker which is basically looks like big unerwear with straps so it holds him better without the problems of a torso-only walker. Maybe this would work better with a more cautious walker or one with better balance, but if your kid is like mine and wants to go go go this is probably not the product for you.

I was a little skeptical about purchasing this product, but after reading a review by a physical therapist recommending it, I went ahead with it. My son had been holding on to my hand to walk for months and he just needed the confidence to let go. After getting the Walking Wings, it only took 2 days for him to walk around on his own! It was amazing! We started holding the straps taught and then let them go slack and after that, we just let go all together. I can't say enough how much I love the product and HIGHLY recommend it to any other frustrated parent.

This product is great!! My six-month old was eager to walk and wanted nothing to do with crawling. After two months of back breaking hand-holding I decided to get this walking assistant. Best decision ever!! Not only does my little guy (now 9 months) love it because he gets to walk around more, his hands are free to explore what he walks to. He actually giggles with excitement when I get it out to put on him. It's also wonderfully made with lots of padding and great stitching (our son is 25 lbs so it needs to be solid!) Enjoy moms...well worth it!

The item arrived is totally different from what's described/photographed in the advertisement; it reads "Walking Wings" with cute little wings and the letters are PRINTED in white and the plastic parts are in black. What arrived (it came directly from China so it took a long time to arrive): a much cheaper version of the original display; it reads "Walking Assistant" SEWN IN in yellow instead of printed in white and the plastic parts are in white (see photo). It makes the item look like some sort of a campaign device that came from the government or a non-profit organization drawing attention in the least desirable way as if the baby is in serious need of special care. On top of the style concerns, the product itself is completely different from what's displayed in the advertisement; in the stock photo, there are two straps with handles for adults, what's arrived: everything came in one piece like a one big necklace.
I have two babies at home, for the older one (17 months) I bought a mini backpack with a detachable rein for a safety device to go outside for a walk and this has worked very well. However this "walking assistant" device which I bought for my younger one looks nothing like what I ordered. If you are in need of something fast (i.e. travel plans in a week), style matters to you, expect to get something that's described in the photo, and do not have time to go through the return process (remember this is a product from overseas and Amazon is only a third-party seller), I wouldn't recommend this item.

This product is wonderful, my 10 month old son was on the walking process but he didn't have the guts to walk on his own, the first day i used this item, he took his first steps on his own, two weeks later, he is running now. Amazing is all I can say.

I thought this product would be a perfect way to assist my son in walking without me straining my back to bend forward while holding his hands. However, my son being that he is in the 98% of weight and height, didn't look well supported as his arms lifted up and slowly started to slip out. Even though he didn't actually slip out completely, it was awkard and seemingly uncomfortable for him. The idea of this product is great, but I suggest that this product could use a few improvements.

I didn't use it much myself, but my parents absolutely loved it. For someone with a bad back, or if your child needs help but loves to walk, it's a must. My parents would take my son out on these super long walks with no stroller, just the walking wings and it really sped up him learning to walk on his own. Also, the product is superbly constructed. (We have the navy, with stripes on the inside model, but I think besides the color this is the same product.)
