Our fabulous range of eco-friendly push along toys includes small toys to push around the floor as well as wonderful walkers and activity toys that are perfect for babies that are beginning to be on the move. Push along toys are great for encouraging movement which is vital for developing babies muscles. They help children develop balance and coordination, they teach children about avoiding obstacles, and they offer a little extra stability as they learn to navigate their way around. These brightly coloured push along toys in various shapes and forms also help with your child's colour and shape recognition.
Push Toys for Babies
A push toy can be incorporated into tummy time for babies, encouraging them to use their muscles to reach out and push themselves up. This could be either a small toy on wheels that they push away from themselves or reach out to grab like the Plan Toy Wheelies, or an activity walker pushed up against something that babies can reach up to fiddle with.
Once they get to the sitting stage a little car or animal on wheels is great fun for pushing around the floor in front of them. And crawling babies will love to have something to chase around the room.
The Plan toys dino cars are a popular choice with little ones and the perfect size for small hands. Made from eco-friendly PlanWood and rubberwood they are safe to chew, lightweight and easy to clean. Making them the perfect gift for little ones.
Push Toys for Toddlers
And once babies find their feet having a push along toy to pull themselves up on and walk around the room with will provide endless entertainment. Of course, the activity walkers are great at this stage as they have the added bonus of plenty of interactive features for baby to play with. But we also love the Plan Toys Walk N Roll and Indigo Jamm Bernies Ride on Bus.
If you are buying for a child that is already walking or close to it then Bernies Ride on Bus is a great choice as it can be used as a walker thanks to the sturdy wooden handle and a ride on toy. This makes it a great choice for a first birthday present as it will still be loved and enjoyed when they are two. We love the fact that there’s space inside to take passengers.
From push toys to pull toys
Once your child is confident to push a push along toy while they walk they start to be ready for pull along toys.
Pulling a toy requires a whole different set of skills to pushing one. Instead of providing additional stability a pull toy requires additional balancing skills. Children have to learn to walk with one hand behind them and will often want to turn back to look at the toy they are pulling.
This could result in a few tumbles as they get the hang of it but they soon will and will love being able to take their favourite friend for a walk or pull along a cart full of toys.
