Bought this for my son when he turned 9months old. He had just started to crawl and so the next stage was to help in standing. At 1st I looked at the vtech walker but this sold me as he could get the walker, the bouncy seat as well as him being able to push himself along. At 1st he would love to just sit on it, would bounce on it so much he'd be able to move the whole thing forward just with bouncing. Then he learnt to pull himself up (10.5months) using the back and runs (not walks) pushing it along everywhere like crazy. He really loves it and that he's able to get everywhere with it. Its sturdy, doesn't tip over when hes pulling himself up and can pull it to the direction he needs if he gets stucks against something (chair/couch/table etc) He hasn't yet learnt to pull himself along sat down but I'm sure that's next. He also loves all the buttons, pressing them and the music. Such a great toy, doesn't take up too much space and is light.
