Good but not great!,
This review is from: VTech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker (Toy)
UPDATE (2/23): I am upgrading it to 4 stars thanks to one of the comments made to my review. We are currently using it with our second son (11 months) and it works just like new. The play panel still freezes, so we don't really use this feature, hence 4 stars instead of 5.
When I first got this walker for my little one he was 9 months old and just started pulling him self up and walking around the crib. I thought these were signs that he is ready to start walking so I got him this walker. Unfortunately his moves were still very uncoordinated and he kept falling with the walker. At that point the walker was still very unsafe for him so I put it away. I took it out when he was 11 months and to my surprise he did great, no more falling at all. He was able to use it immediately so I believe no walker will work when the baby is not ready yet. I'm giving this walker 3 stars for two reasons. First I think the name is a bit misleading as I don't think this is a good product to learn how to stand up so "Sit-to-Stand Learning" is a bit misleading. I do however think that if a baby learned how to stand up properly this becomes a great walker. The second reason is that the play panel freezes all the time and is very annoying, so we don't even turn it on anymore and use it only as a walker.

It is called "Sit to Stand" because one of the selling points of the walker is that before the baby is able to walk the walker has a phase that it will sit still and allow a baby who can sit up on his own to play and interact with this toy.

Watching him push it around makes me look forward to using that feature once my little guy gets older. That was way too adorable. Thanks for the video, great demonstration of the product, and it doesn't hurt to have the cutest baby ever -besides my baby of course ;) -pushing it around!

Aww! Thank you Richard! This just put a smile on my face. We are actually on a second round with this walker. Second baby and still goes strong! Good luck with your little one and enjoy! :)

I think that it is called a Sit to Stand Walker because you can remove the panel and have them sit and play with him and also the wheels on mine you can lock up, not completely but to where it almost does not move, so they can play with it that way. It is a shame that your panel freezes up because that is a feature my son enjoys very much, he loves music and lights up every time it makes a noise. Your son is absolutely adorable, by the way!!! SO ADORABLE! Love it. Enjoyed the video very much and your review. Thanks!
