Inexpensive and Expensive Versions of Wooden Baby Walkers

Simple or Swank: Wooden Baby Walkers

When baby looks like he is ready to take his first steps, mama may turn to a walker to help steady her lil guy. While some of the push toys feature flashing lights and music to encourage tots, more traditional wooden versions are making a comeback. Unfortunately, the fewer the frills, the more expensive the items seem to be.


Simple: Melissa and Doug's Chomp and Clack Alligator Walker ($30) is made from hand-sanded, painted wood to create a colorful push toy with three clacking alligators.
Swank: Plan Toys' Woodpecker Baby Walker ($76) reflects the company's Eco-friendly mission. The natural wood colored toy is made from recycled rubberwood trees and has three nature-inspired animals that move as the walker is pushed.
Which one do you prefer?

HLHArts - I believe Consumer Reports is referring to the old style of walkers where you put the baby in a "chair" in the middle of a toy and it "encouraged" them to walk. They were considered dangerous because the baby couldn't see where they were going. These walkers are really "push toys" that simply provide a little balance for wobbly legs.

According to Consumer Reports, walkers are not a very safe or useful idea: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/babies-kids/baby-toddler/play-and-activity/walkers/baby-walkers-1105/overview/
