Watching your baby learn to walk and take their first steps is a milestone all parents look forward to. With our gorgeous range of wooden baby walkers and pull along toys we hope to support your child each step of the way.
A push along or activity centre is a great toy both for babies that are already cruising and for those that have not yet found their feet. Our range of beautifully designed wooden baby walkers are designed to give little ones just the right amount of support, as well as providing lots of fun and excitement.
Choose a cart or a camper van full of blocks, a fab jingling roller with removable back wheels, an activity baby walker or even a baby walker that doubles as a ride on for when they get a bit bigger. Whatever you are looking for we have an amazing baby walker just for you.
Our range of wooden activity walkers all have lots of engaging activities for little ones to get involved with before they are standing. Playing with a baby walker like the Tidlo or Big Jigs activity baby walker is great for keeping tummy time fun. Playing with a toy on a vertical plane will help strengthen their upper body, neck and arms, as they push up and reach for things. Plus it’s a great way for baby to practise reaching and grasping.
Just make sure the walker is backed up against something so it doesn’t roll away from them as this will not only be frustrating before they are able to chase after it but could also lead to them getting hurt.
Then once they are sitting an activity walker is the perfect way to keep them amused, developing both fine and gross motor skills at the same time. These toys have lots of things to push and pull, twist and move, and the bright colours and pretty patterns are really engaging.
Again it’s best to keep the baby walker pushed up against something so it doesn’t rush away from them while they are playing and result in them falling over. If you want something your child can push around the floor when they are learning to crawl then we also stock a great range of push along toys as well as lovely soft balls that will roll away from them, encouraging movement, but are still easy to grasp. Plus they won’t cause damage if they do get thrown.
Sturdy push along toys with easy grip handles are perfect for babies to pull themselves up to standing, developing strength and balance. They can still see their feet Once they find their feet it gives them a bit of extra stability taking their first steps. And once they have mastered the art of walking there’ll be no stopping them as they push their baby walker around the room transporting toys as they go.
Unlike a sit in baby walker, a push along baby walker encourages the strengthening of the same muscles your baby would use learning to walk without one. It’s a bit like holding your hands or pulling themselves up on the edge of the sofa or coffee table. Whereas in a sit-in baby walker your child learns to scoot around using their toes which will develop different muscles and doesn’t help them develop the balance they require for walking.
Studies have shown that these types of baby walkers don’t help babies development, in fact, they can hamper it, and that they can be dangerous. So we think a lovely wooden push along baby walker is a much better investment for your child.
Here’s a great selection to help you choose your favourite baby walker.
We love this unusual baby walker from plan toys. Strong and sturdy children can use it to pull themselves up and give them a bit of extra balance as they are taking their first tentative steps. The big roller at the front has a bell inside and so makes a pleasing jingling sound as they move forward, encouraging them to take more steps and keep the music going.
We love the fact that the handle is height adjustable so it can grow with your child. And the fact that the back wheels can be removed. This means that when your child is more stable on their feet you can change it from a baby walker to a push along toy. We think it makes a fabulous toy lawn mower or vacuum cleaner.
Made from a mix of sustainable rubberwood, harvested close to the factory from trees that are no longer producing rubber, and PlanWood, an ingenious product made from sawdust from the Plan Toys factory that would otherwise be a waste product. This baby walker would make a great gift that is sure to be appreciated by eco-minded parents.
Tidlo Wooden Baby Walker with ABC Blocks
The Tidlo baby walker with ABC blocks is a classic baby walker similar to the one you might have had as a child but with some a few colourful modern twists.
The sturdy wooden handle is easy for little hands to hold and has two bars so it’s perfect for little and bigger walkers. The wooden wheels have a rubber grip strip to stop it sliding away to quickly and give a bit of extra traction on smooth surfaces. And there are brightly coloured beads at the front that are great to play with long before your baby is ready for walking.
The colourful wooden blocks are a toy in their own right. Perfect for developing fine and gross motor skills, problem-solving and balance as they stack them high and knock them to the ground. They also have letters and numbers on so are perfect for letter and number recognition, learning to count, colour sorting and all sorts of educational games.
This is a baby walker that will be loved long after your baby has learned to walk. The cart might be used as a shopping trolly, a baby pram or a wheelbarrow in future games. And wooden blocks are always fun for building with.
Indigo Jamm Bernies Ride On Bus
This is certainly not what you might first imagine when somebody says baby walker as it looks more like a ride on toy. And that’s the beauty of it. It’s been designed to do both. Plus, it’s also a lovely big red bus with a driver and a lift up roof so it can be filled with passengers.
The handle at the back is just right for new walkers to grip on to and push the bus along, and once they are ready it can also be used as a ride on toy with a nice smooth handle at the front as well for them to hold on to while they are cruising. Children will love playing the bus driver, taking their toys for a ride. While parents will love the retro design.
Big Jigs Activity Baby Walker
The Big Jigs Activity Walker baby walker comes in two designs, Marine and Flower, and both a packed full of sensory stimulation and fun activities for babies both before and after they learn to walk.
Both feature a rainbow design at the top and a little slider so your child can switch between the sun and the moon. A shape sorter on one side, which is great for shape recognition and developing fine motor skills and dexterity. And lots of things to slide, twist, turn and spin.
These baby walkers are very sturdy and have an easy to grip handle which babies can use to pull themselves up to standing and take support and balance from as they figure out how to walk. The wheels have a rubber grip strip to stop them sliding on smooth surfaces. And there’s even space at the back to bring a favourite teddy along for the ride. Or transport toys around the house.
The Tidlo activity baby walker is a similar design with lots of engaging activities to keep little hands and minds amused as they play and develop. Again it’s a high-quality toy and so it’s really just a case of picking a design you like. After all, you are going to have to look at it for a while.
