LOVE this walker so much! It is very sturdy and doubles as a bumper cart for my son! Compared to others that use cheap plastic this one uses hard plastic which is perfect as my son likes to lean over and ram it into things. its also fairly easy to clean; wipe down the front and throw the seat in the washing machine. Also the different height levels allowed him to use it for a while as he grew. The only thing I wasnt too fond of was the music. I found it a tad loud but every1 else said it was fine. Simple solution, turn it off! Very satisfied with this purchase.
It's well built for tall babies with long legs. You can adjust the height down, but even the lowest setting is intended for Yao Ming's children.... or may be Shaquile O'Neal Jr. Listen, I'm not saying this isn't nice- it is. I'm just saying that this is supposed to be for babies... for them to learn to walk in ... to trod along happily. Their feet will have to touch the ground for positive traction, even slightly, for this to work. So, consider the actual size of your baby first. Ask yourself for example "is my baby overgrown, large, unusually tall?" Do strangers randomly comment on how freakishly long your baby's legs are? If the answer is yes, you should buy this.
My daughter was 9 months old when I purchased this and 27" tall. It's a decent construction and extremely cute, but on the lowest setting, her legs would not reach the floor. It was off about 1.5". She's not a short baby, and she's starting to want to walk. By the time she grows into the walker, she will already be cruising around by herself. Unfortunately, we had to return it.
Not the best quality walker, but it certainly gets the job done. My son loves walking/running in this little thing. I like the fact that this product has a few toys that each work and play differently, but honestly, the choice of toys are just odd – especially the one with the hatched egg (or whatever), it has such a weird sound/tune. Instead of a weird screaming dinosaur noise, why not just have it say something fun for kids?! The only toy my son actually plays or interacts with the the red dinosaur attached by a string. Even with that, all he actually does is just pull on it – trying to detach it.
I also don't understand the design of having the top activity tray swing open instead of having it be removed. It would've been much better if we could just detach that whole layer. The swing doesn't work smoothly, and it's a challenge to even open the tray as the lock/latch is located directly below the tray, which you have to pull hard and swing the tray open. A small cup tray would've been good. I'm honestly not all the pleased to the choice of colors either.
The product is advertised to have a machine washable padded seat, which is accurate, but boy is it a challenge to remove the seat fabric... not to mention the assembly of the seat, wow. The front two wheels are all that used to stir or turn, but the poor quality design causes it to freeze and drag sometimes.
On a positive note, I did like how the product is adjustable to 3 heights. I also liked the safety feature with the bottom grip strips. But overall, I think the product is almost worth it's value, maybe a just a little less.
So disappointed with the chair design. It has your child sit, rather than stand, which makes walking difficult for beginners. The height is adjustable but not enough in my opinion. My six month old is of average height according to his doctors but was unable to reach the floor due to the way the seat has them in a sitting position versus a standing one. I wish I had taken my little one to the store to physically try out a few walkers prior to making my purchase. On a positive note, it is made well and I really liked the activities it provides the child. The trays slide out so you can add additional toys or use it as a blank tray. The wheels swivel so I can see this being a great feature to prevent the child from becoming stuck in a corner, etc. This walker may be best for babies a bit older than 6 months to ensure the height will be suitable.
I got this for a 5 month old grandson of average size. He was able to touch the floor, one foot at a time by moving his weight, and was eventually able to get it to move backwards on a hardwood floor. He enjoys the attached toys.
Just bought this for my 7 month old girl. She's 22 lbs, 22 inches. Here are the cons, The height is difficult to adjust, and with it at the lowest setting, her feet cannot reach the ground. And, the battery compartment tab is sharp! it protrudes from the box. It's sharp enough to cut her finger. Use a razor knife to shave it round. To add, at the highest setting, by the time my daughter needs that, she'd know how to walk just fine. The designer should lose the highest setting, and add a lower setting. It does fold to a low profile, but it folds with the adjustment tabs on the underside, and it's difficult to operate. My daughter likes it, but other than that, there is nothing I would recommend about this walker.
