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.
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.
I agree with the majority here... its okay but it isn't anything great and I wouldn't repurchase. I would even consider returning it but the hassle doesn't seem worth it. (lazy choice, I know).
Not the best quality walker, kind of a pain to assemble but its fine. One of the features I thought I would appreciate most was that its foldable but I would have forgone that for a better walker.
Daughter is 29" long at 9 months (which is above 'average') and like a lot of other reviews she can't really get her feet all the way to the floor and "walk". She can kind of get a bit of leverage one foot at a time and move backwards. I don't know if this is different with other walkers but the lowest height needs to be lower. The highest height is going to be worthless since she will be able to walk by then.
Written by another reviewer but I 100% agree: ** 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.**
The tray is silly. Its way to difficult to fool with on a regular basis.
The removable, washable seat is also a great feature in theory but its not easy to remove at all. We have several other baby items with removable covers/seats and they are all user friendly... this is a total pain.
If you found this on sales for $25 or $30 I would say go for it. More $ than that and I would suggest looking at other options (in store if possible).
The leg holes seem to be a little tight when the baby sits in it. But, once he figured out how to stand and move around they didn't bother him. It turns very well and manuevers over our carpet without a problem.
I researched walkers for the longest, I wanted the Joovy Spoon walker, but heard a lot of complaints about parents having to use the highest height setting soon as they got it, making a very short life that the baby would be able to use the walker, that was something I was going against, and could not afford. I'm glad I did my research, my daughter is using this on the LOWEST height setting, so she'll be able to grow in to this for a while. As for the toys on the walker tray itself, I was not impressed, but my daughter seems to like it, so I'm sure it'll grow on me! What does have me blown away though, is how comfortable she is sitting in this! When she's not standing (hasn't developed the walking part yet lol), she's sitting, and boy is she comfortable lol, she sits back like she's in a mini baby LA-Z-BOY haha. This is a walker and then some!
