10 Best Baby Walking Toys 2024

Baby walkers are toys and devices built to help babies walk around on their own. Not only can walker toys help babies learn to walk, but they also allow parents to carry on with other tasks and chores while the child safely moves around the house and plays with the toys that often come with baby walkers. This buyer’s guide will review the best baby walking toys available today.

The Benefits of Baby Walking Toys

For many parents, their main goal for shopping for baby walkers is to get something that can serve as a development tool and playpen, especially so for toddlers that are always crying for their parents to carry them in their arms. Although baby walkers can provide much-needed relief allowing parents and caregivers to perform other household tasks, they also have developmental benefits for the child.

Building Independence

Baby walking toys can be a tool to encourage children to build independence early in life. Developing independence comes with a myriad of benefits such as improved self-esteem, confidence, self-reliance, motivation, perseverance, and many more. Traditional baby walkers do not require adults to constantly hover behind the child sitting in the walker, and there are walkers such as the Melissa & Doug Chomp & Clack Alligator Push Toy designed for toddlers to stand and push from behind.

Occupying and Engaging Children

While placing a baby in a walker can allow parents and caregivers the time to take care of themselves and attend to other important matters around the house or at work, the built-in toys and gadgets often featured on modern baby walkers can also occupy and engage the child in mentally stimulating activities. The VTech Sit-To-Stand Learning Walker is such a multi-function baby walking toy with several features that stimulate the senses, teach shape and color recognition, and so on. Our pick of the best baby walking toys not only support infants to walk, but also engage them in other fun-filled activities.

Encouraging Mobility

Baby walkers can actually encourage babies to take their first steps. Because walkers provide support for the child, kids are more disposed to the standing and walking posture needed to successfully walk on their own.

Now that we have seen how baby walkers can support a child’s growth and benefit the parents, let’s review our pick of the ten best baby walking toys available today.

Top 10 Best Baby Walking Toys 2024

1. VTech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker

For Ages 0-3
Why it made the list The interactive detachable play panel is a standalone full-featured educational toy.

The VTech Sit-To-Stand Learning Walker is a widely popular baby walking toy and for a good reason. Perhaps the most standout feature is the detachable activity panel that can be placed flat on the floor for kids to play with and learn about everything from animals to colors, shapes, numbers, and fun music. The panel can even be used without using the walker.

The VTech Sit-To-Stand Learning Walker comes in four eye-catching colors to choose from including pink, blue, orange, and lavender. Recommended for babies as young as nine-months-old, this walking toy will provide the most value for little ones because not only does it entertain and educate kids, but it also comes with features that support the development of their motor skills.

Considering the array of electronic features of this toy, it’s impressive that it requires just two AA batteries, which are included. It produces flashing lights, sound effects, and age-appropriate phrases. It also belts out more than seventy sing-along songs.

Considering that parents in the market for baby walking toys are looking for something to occupy their children, the VTech Sit-To-Stand Learning Walker comes with plenty of entertainment value. Little ones can also walk or push the walker without the activity panel attached. It also has five piano keys that play music and allow kids to make fun musical sounds. The piano keys are color-coded to teach children color recognition.

The piano keys also produce sounds to introduce children to numbers and the sounds of various animals. The volume can be set to low or high, which can be handy when adults seek fewer distractions. Located beneath and beside the piano keys are spinning rollers and three shape sorters. These features allow children to develop hand-eye coordination, problem-solving skills, and fine motor skills.

There is even a little barn door that opens and closes, providing a safe and fun way for kids to understand the concept of “open” and “close”.  The shape sorters and spinning rollers can also help with language development as kids try to verbally identify the names of the various shapes.

Another important feature of the detachable play panel is the pretend telephone handset that encourages role-playing. This can spark children’s imagination and creativity. With a telephone set of his or her own, your toddler can finally leave your cell phones and home phone alone.

Moving on to the walker, the VTech Sit-To-Stand Learning Walker comes with wheels that run on both carpets and hard floors. The wheels have two-speed options allowing the back wheels to be locked which limits the speed of the walker. So, you don’t have to worry about the walker moving too quickly on smooth surfaces like hardwood floors. Weighing just 2.2 pounds, this VTech baby walking toy is as lightweight as it is durable.

2. Trend 2.0 Activity Walker

For Ages 0.5-2
Why it made the list This is a multi-directional baby walker with a padded high-back seat.

The Trend 2.0 Activity Walker by Baby Trend is one of the best multi-directional baby walkers on the market today. A multi-directional walker is a great walking toy to aid babies who are just starting to take their first steps. The Trend 2.0 Activity Walker is built with an extra-wide base that provides better sturdiness and improved stability as little ones walk around in it.

The walker itself weighs 6.61 pounds and is built for children weighing between 15 to 25 pounds. It comes in a design that is simple and child friendly.  You can get the walker in four basic colors and designs, including these blue sprinkles. This blue color is accented with purple polka dots and yellow wheels, while the tray and frame are white.

The walker is not delivered to the customer ready to use from the box. The customer will have to put together the five parts that come in the box; the base, front wheels, rear wheels, the bar, and the seat. It is fairly easy to assemble the walker using the user manual included in the package.

The food tray, which also doubles as a play area, is fitted with a removable toy bar. We do not put much stock in the toys, though. The attached entertainment toys are nowhere near the quality of that of the Sit-To-Stand Learning Walker, for example. But if you’re looking for stability, comfort, and safety, the Trend 2.0 Activity Walker is a winner.

The large surround tray provides plenty of space for snacks and play. When the toy bar is taken off the tray, babies will have an even larger room on the tray for food and play. In addition to the walker’s broad base that improves its sturdiness, it also has an adjustable height feature that can be set to three different height positions. This allows the walker to fit children of different heights, or just to lift the walker so that the child’s feet do not touch the ground. The walker has a ground-to-top height of roughly 18 inches on the highest setting.

With the high-back seat that comes with this walker, you can be sure that your baby will not fall backwards when sitting and walking in the toy. The tall backseat also provides comfy support for the tot’s back and shoulders. In our opinion, the high-back padded seat is the best feature of this baby walker. Even so, adult supervision is highly recommended for children less than three-years-old.

At any rate, the Trend 2.0 Activity Walker has a braking mechanism that slows the walker. The walker is foldable and can be collapsed flat for easy storage and transportation. Unfortunately, the seat fabric is not machine washable and the wheels do not run well on carpets. If you have hardwood flooring at home though, then this is your go-to multi-directional baby walker.

3. Little Tikes Go and Grow Lil' Rollin' Giraffe

For Ages 1-3
Why it made the list Not only is the Little Tikes Rollin’ Giraffe affordable, but it is also built with long-lasting materials.

If you’re looking for a walker that can also serve as a ride-on toy, then the Little Tikes Go and Grow Lil’ Rollin’ Giraffe may be what you’re looking for. The “bike” does not come with pedals, so children can push it forward and backward using their legs and feet. Designed in the shape of a friendly animal and painted in child-friendly colors, this toy can easily be one of the cutest and most cheerful baby walking toys in your home.

The Rollin’ Giraffe is painted with non-toxic paint, making it safe even for toddlers that chew on everything. The toy is built in such a style that the animal’s ears are the bike’s handlebars. The toy even comes with stickers for little ones to place each spot on the body and personalize their giraffe.

Although the Little Tikes Giraffe can be classified as a ride-on toy, it is built with a foot-to-floor format that ensures the rider’s feet touch the ground, allowing them to scoot and ride the toy. The Rollin’ Giraffe has dimensions measuring 15.50 inches long, 22 inches wide, and 16 inches high. It weighs 2 pounds and is recommended for babies aged between one and three-years-old.

The bike is good for babies as long as the child weighs no more than the bike’s maximum load capacity of 50 pounds. Little Tikes is a toy manufacturing company based in the USA which should reassure shoppers of the quality of the toys made by the company.

The Little Tikes Go and Grow Lil’ Rollin’ Giraffe can help children develop better balance, gross motor skills, coordination, arms, and leg muscles.

This bike is fitted with one extra-large back wheel in addition to the two front wheels that promotes its stability. Paired with the back wheel guard and wide front wheelbase, the Little Tikes Go and Grow Lil’ Rollin’ Giraffe is as sturdy as it is adorable.

Another thing we liked about this toy is the reasonable price tag. Considering that kids of this age group grow at a speedy rate, you don’t want to invest a lot of money in a toy that the child will outgrow very soon. Plus, the seat is height-adjustable to accommodate the toddler’s growing legs.

Not only is the Rollin’ Giraffe affordable, but it is also built with long-lasting materials. The wheels are good for indoor or outdoor use, and the lightweight quality makes it easy for transport to the neighborhood park, etc. Some assembly is required but the bike is still very easy to put together.

4. Radio Flyer Classic Sit to Stand Toddler Walker Wagon

For Ages 1-4
Why it made the list The Radio Flyer Walker Wagon is fitted with a front bumper to prevent any damage to the walker or furniture in case of collisions.

The Radio Flyer Walker Wagon is an award-winning wooden push wagon made in the USA. This classic, retro-looking wagon is made almost entirely of durable wood, including removable wooden sides. The handlebars are made from metal and are screwed into the walker’s frame to enhance its strength.

We guarantee this baby walking toy will inspire love at first sight from both children and adults. The vintage look of the toy gives it a decorative quality for any part of the house, including the living room. Although the wagon’s design sports a vintage look, it is built with modern materials. For toy shoppers who prefer minimalist toys instead of models packed full of gizmos, the Radio Flyer Walker Wagon is an excellent choice.

This baby walker lacks the flashing buttons, rattles, light shows, and other gizmos that are often present in toys of this type. This means the walker does not come with distracting features, making it the perfect choice for shoppers who are strictly looking for toys to help a baby figure out how to walk.

With dimensions measuring 22.44 inches long, 14.57 inches wide, and 17.13 inches high, the walker is big but not so big that it is obtrusive. The wooden side panels are easily removed to lower the sides, making it easy for toddlers to climb in and play inside the wagon or just to get pushed around by adults. The removable side panels also lighten the weight of the wagon.

When stacked full of toys, and with most of the wagon’s weight in front, it is safer and easier for babies to propel themselves forward. This works on different levels because babies enjoy placing and removing toys from the wagon’s front basket. Plus, the basket can serve as toy storage so kids can go straight to it when they wish to play.

The Walker Wagon comes with a “resist push” feature that slows the wheels. This feature enhances the walker’s stability and safety for children. The resist push feature is like a tensioning system that makes an audible clicking sound when the wheels are rolling. This clicking sound can be disabled by getting rid of the tensioner.

The wooden construction makes this walker harder to steer than the plastic models. While this can be a bit discomfiting for the young ones, it enhances the safety of the toy so that kids don’t easily lose control of the walker. The walker features durable molded wheels (plastic wheels filled with foam) with grip tread to deliver smoother rides.

The walker is fitted with a furniture friendly bumper at the front to prevent any damage to the walker’s body and home furniture in case the baby bumps into something. Kids who are at a developmental stage where they’ve started walking will enjoy this toy the most although babies can still have plenty of fun climbing in and out, stacking, and removing toys from the front basket. It is deep enough to carry several toys and it has a max load capacity of 35 lb.

In all, the Radio Flyer Walker Wagon is a minimalist multifunctional high-quality baby walking toy that will continue to engage your child for years to come. The walker does not come with an adjustable-height feature but the height of the handlebar is perfect for toddlers.

The wagon is not delivered to the customer ready to use; it comes with fifteen different pieces in the box. While this might seem overwhelming, it is rather easy to assemble the walker in just minutes by following the included instructions.

5. Kolcraft Tiny Steps 2-in-1 Infant & Baby Activity Walker

For Ages 0-2
Why it made the list The Kolcraft Tiny Steps walker converts from seated infant mode to push-behind toddler mode.

The Kolcraft Tiny Steps 2-in-1 Infant & Baby Activity Walker is a classic seated baby walker that also transforms into a walk-behind toddler walking toy. In our opinion, this is the main distinguishing feature of this baby walker; it grows with your child. Babies as young as ten-months-old can comfortably sit in the walker with their feet touching the ground. As the child grows, they can transition to walking behind the same walker.

The walker weighs 7.5 lb. with a max load capacity of 26 lb. When assembled, its dimensions are 26 inches long, 24 inches wide, and 32.5 inches high.

The Kolcraft Tiny Steps 2-in-1 Infant & Baby Activity Walker is good for babies  ten months to two-years-old who weigh less than 32 lb. With the walker weighing less than 8 lb., it is not so lightweight that kids easily lose control of it.

A high-back seat is a plus in a seated baby walker, and this Kolcraft activity walker is no exception. It comes with a plush high-back seat that improves the comfort of the young ones and the stability of the walker. The seat also comes with an adjustable-height feature making it possible for babies of different heights to comfortably use the walker.

The walker’s rear is open, so the baby’s heels never hit anything, no matter how fast they move. Another important feature of the Kolcraft Tiny Steps 2-in-1 Infant & Baby Activity Walker is the fold-down feature that allows the walker to be flattened for easy storage or transportation.

Not only can the walker be folded flat, but the seat pad can also be machine washed while the rest of the plastic parts can be wiped down with a damp cloth and mild soap.

The walker’s multi-directional wheels can be locked in place using the lock function built into the independent front wheels. Another of this walker’s safety features is the non-skid friction pads beneath the frame that helps the walker maintain balance and stability while moving.

The downside is that the non-skid friction pads prevent this walker from riding smoothly on carpeted floors, but the upside is that the wheels do not leave marks or scratches on smooth surfaces like hardwood floors. In all, the Kolcraft Tiny Steps 2-in-1 Infant & Baby Activity Walker is a fantastic choice of baby walkers, not the least because it is a money and storage space saver.

6. Jeep Classic Wrangler 3-in-1 Grow With Me Walker

For Ages 0-2
Why it made the list The Grow With Me Walker by Jeep converts to three different modes; walker, push walker, and rolling toy-cart.

Now you can get a baby walking toy built to replicate the classic Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler Grow With Me is a multifunctional baby walker that transforms from a standard bucket-seat style baby walker to a push-behind car, as well as a rolling toy car. There is a grab handle behind the walker that allows it to be pushed from behind.

This branded Jeep baby walker is available in four colors for customers to choose from, including anniversary green.

Not only can the walker be folded flat for easy storage and transportation, but the Jeep can also be fully detached from the walker’s frame and used as a standalone toy car. When detached from the frame, the walker’s seat is then converted to a storage space for toys, complete with a mesh insert and spare tire lid to keep the toys in. Kids will enjoy throwing their toys and figurines in the seat and shuttling them around in the Jeep.

The car features a realistic Jeep Wrangler design with such decals as a front seven-slot grille, round headlamps, front fender flares, rear side mirrors, and more. Other engaging features that make this Jeep branded walker one of the coolest baby walkers in the market include a working horn, working signal lights, and realistic engine sounds.

The walker’s front tray doubles as the Jeep’s dashboard. The tray is also useful as a toy and snack tray for the beginner walker. The dashboard can easily be removed to convert the space to a snack tray.

The dashboard features include a working steering wheel, button controls that trigger realistic horn and engine sounds, and controls for the light-up turn signals. Playing with the push-buttons and gear stick on the dashboard encourages the little one to build fine and gross motor skills. The electronic features require two [amazon url="https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003SIOZB6″]AA batteries[/amazon], which aren’t included.

We recommend this walker for children who are seven months old to two-years-old. The walker is a good fit for your child if he or she weighs no more than 25 pounds and is less than 30 inches tall. While babies less than seven months old can still have fun playing with and rolling the walker on the floor in car mode, this toy shines when the child is beginning to walk and can sit in the walker’s seat with his or her feet reaching the ground.

The adjustable height feature allows the seat to be sat about seven inches above the ground at the lowest setting, which provides a great walking posture for infants just beginning to walk. You can keep adjusting the height using the adjustment straps on the seat as the baby grows. The seat is also a high-back design, which provides comfort and support for the seated child.

Measuring 29.2 inches long, 25.1 inches wide, and 12 inches high; this is one of the biggest baby walkers we’ve seen. All the same, the fold-flat feature makes storing it convenient.  It is easy to assemble the Jeep Classic Wrangler 3-in-1 Grow With Me Walker. The only tool you need is a small screwdriver to open and close the battery door.

You also need to remove the stickers covering the side-mirrors. The walker runs best on smooth, hard surfaces like tile, linoleum, and hardwood floors.

7. Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Stroll-Along Walker

For Ages 0-4
Why it made the list Fisher-Price’s Stroll Along Walker combines the fun and whimsy of a doll stroller with the stability of a walker.

Recommended for babies who are nine months to four-year-old, this is a very suitable walking toy that grows with babies from infancy to preschool. At 9-months-old, babies are just beginning to take their first steps so you want to invest in a walker they won’t quickly outgrow. This walker by Fisher-Price is especially fun for little ones who like to play with dolls or role-play.

If you’ve bought doll strollers before, chances are you weren’t happy with your purchase because the ones you bought were flimsy and cheaply made. But not so this adorable Fisher-Price Stroll-Along Walker.

The Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Stroll-Along Walker comes with extra-wide wheels that enhance the sturdiness and smooth ride of the stroller. Weighing 5.51 pounds, this doll stroller is lightweight enough for babies to push along while also heavy enough to prevent the stroller from skidding away.

The Fisher-Price Stroll-Along Walker comes with a built-in transparent spinner toy with colorful beads inside that is within arm’s reach for babies to play with while sitting on the floor.

When it comes to doll strollers, the quality of the handle is very important. The Fisher-Price Stroll-Along Walker comes with a chunky easy-grasp handle that is suitable for tiny hands. Gripping and pushing the stroller helps children to build finger muscles and coordination.

There is a wiggly toy bear fitted near the stroller’s handle. Fun sounds and music are triggered when children press the teddy bear’s tummy. The stroller comes with other activity toys, such as the beaded spinner in front of the walker, the roller bar on both sides of the walker, and a flipbook on the front tray. There’s no space for extra toys and food on the tray, which makes sense since this is a doll stroller not meant for children to sit in.

Encourage role-play and spark your child’s imagination by adding a suitable doll for your little girl to push around in the stroller. When getting a doll for this stroller, you want to get one that is easy for kids to put in and remove from the stroller. Fisher-Price did not include a doll with this stroll-along walker.

This is the perfect baby walker for parents who have reservations about bucket seat baby walkers since the baby does not have to stand and push this doll stroller until they are physically ready to do so. Attempts to use the stroller to pull themselves to a standing position is likely to cause the stroller to tip or quickly roll away from the child. Other than that, this the sturdiest doll stroller we’ve seen so far.

8. iPlay, iLearn 3-in-1 Baby Sit to Stand Walkers Toys

For Ages 0-3
Why it made the list The 3 in 1 Baby Walker from iPlay iLearn features a Movement Sensor that triggers fun sound effects and music when the walker is in motion.

Is your child ready to start learning to walk? The 3 in 1 Baby Walker is one of the coolest walking toys to help them do so.

Even for children who are as young as 9-months-old, the 3 in 1 Baby Walker is a fantastic toy because it offers plenty of fun learning to enjoy while sitting down. The array of activity features on both sides of the panel makes it a perfect grow-with-me toy for babies who are not walking yet. As the child grows to 3-years-old, they will have transitioned to pushing the walker from behind while the array of educational and fun gadgets remains as engaging as they ever were.

It’s hard to pass up the iPlay, iLearn 3 in 1 Baby Walker. It is a three-in-one multifunction baby walker with a host of play content that educates, stimulates, as well as helps children develop physically.

The walker’s legs can also be completely removed, improving the convenience and safety for infants to play with the activity panel while sitting on the floor. Thirdly, it can be used as a push-behind baby walker. This means that all three play modes can help children learn to sit, stand, and walk. The walker’s triangular construction promotes its stability. It also has a two-shift speed adjustment conveniently located at the walker’s right side to ensure the walker travels at a controlled speed.

The activity features a built-in sliding aircraft toy that produces take-off and landing sound effects. This, in turn, prompts children to shift the gear lever and turn the steering wheel. As the steering wheel is turned, a mini car travels around the Happy Town. The Happy Town is surrounded by light-up push-buttons decorated with fun images that when pushed educates children about different sites and animals. It also has a built-in flip-book that babies can turn to view adorable animal pictures while developing dexterity.

Other features include colorful counting beads and a squishy toy phone to help children develop fine motor skills. The “3-in-1” refers to the walker’s ability to convert to an activity table, with the walker’s frame transforming to the table legs. The wonderful thing is that the walker is just as sturdy in tablet form as it is in walker mode.

The walker runs perfectly on carpeted floors as well as on hardwood floors. We were impressed with the movement sensor that triggers fun sound effects and music when the walker is in motion. The 3 in 1 Baby Walker features a magnetic doodle board on the opposite side of the play panel allowing kids to write, draw, stamp, and practice their artistic skills.

The magnetic board is a fantastic feature, especially when the walker is in desk form. It includes a pen, slide eraser, and shape stamps.

The only downside we could find is that some may find the accent of the interactive voice difficult to understand. Unsurprisingly, the iPlay iLearn 3 in 1 Baby Walker comes at a high price compared to similar full-featured activity baby walkers such as the VTech Sit-To-Stand Learning Walker. The required three AA batteries are included.

9. Melissa & Doug Chomp & Clack Alligator Push Toy

For Ages 1-2
Why it made the list The Melissa & Doug walker is built with tip-resistant construction that makes it sturdy and stable.

If you’re a fan of wooden toys, then we’re happy to present you with the Melissa & Doug Chomp & Clack Alligator Push Toy. The Melissa & Doug Chomp & Clack Alligator Push Toy is another wooden baby walking toy worthy of a place on this list. Unlike the Radio Flyer Walker Wagon, this one has chomping gators where the Radio Flyer wagon has a storage space.

To begin with, the Melissa & Doug brand is trusted and loved by many families around the world. The company is known for making some of the world’s best toys that usually come in simple designs packing loads of educational fun. These qualities are evident in this Melissa & Doug alligator push-behind baby walker as it has a simple retro look that is pleasing and made with high-quality materials.

If you have been searching for that sturdy baby walker that won’t tip over when pushed by kids with wobbly feet, this is the one you’re looking for because it is built with tip-resistant construction.

The walker weighs a pound, which makes it the lightest baby walker we’ve reviewed in this buyer’s guide. It also means children should always have adult supervision while pushing this toy as the lightweight quality can make it go a bit too fast. The upside is that the walker is easy for kids to maneuver because it is lightweight. The non-skid rubber strip around the wheels prevents the walker from skidding away from the child. The non-skid wheels also prevent damage to the floor, whether hardwood or ceramic tile.

Not only is this walker built with high-quality materials, but it also comes with an above ground height that enhances its stability. The walker tips when children pull on it, but it delivers a sturdy stable ride. It has a wide base that further enhances the walker’s stability in addition to the broad handle and non-slip wheels. The walker’s dimensions are 17 inches long, 12.75 inches wide, and 7 inches in height.

The wooden wheels are wrapped with rubber making them perfect for both carpeted and hardwood floors and even on grassy terrain. The Melissa & Doug Alligator Push Toy may come in a simple design but it also comes with activity toys. These include the chomping alligators and the spinning butterflies and ladybug beads. These attached toys pale in comparison to some full-featured baby walkers in this list, but the spinning beads can help children develop motor skills.

There are also colorful images of fish printed on the walker’s wheels that go in circles as the walker is pushed. This feature can stimulate children’s sensory perception. As the walker is in motion, kids are rewarded with the chomp and clank of the smiling gators.

We wondered if children won’t get their fingers pinched by the alligators’ mouths that open and shut when the toy is pushed along. This is highly unlikely to happen since the gator’s mouths only open and close while the child is pushing the walker. But if it does happen, not only do the alligators’ mouths open and shut slowly, but they also do not shut completely.

The clanking sounds the smiling gators make promotes the fun of pushing the walker, as well as help children to develop hand-eye coordination. The walker is sparsely painted with child-safe paint. This is a fantastic choice of baby walking toy especially considering the partnership Melissa & Doug has with the American Academy of Paediatrics to foster early brain development and help children build important life skills through play.

10. Skip Hop 3-in-1 Baby Activity Push Walker & Ride on Scooter

For Ages 1-4
Why it made the list This Skip Hop scooter comes with a 3-in-1 multi-functionality for a little one’s three different growth stages.

Are you looking for a cute baby walking toy for your child? How about a classic three-wheel toy Vespa instead? The Skip Hop 3-in-1 Baby Activity Push Walker & Ride On Scooter is a dog and unicorn-themed multifunction sit-to-stand ride-on toy that resembles a Vespa scooter.

The walker is recommended for babies and toddlers up to four-years-old. This is a fantastic-looking baby walker that can be used in three different ways.

This walker stands out not only with its classic Vespa craftsmanship but also because of its innovative three-in-one applications designed to grow with the child. If you’re drawn to grow-with-me toys, it’s important to consider the durability of the toy because as important as the grow-with-me function is the survivability of the toy through the various growth stages. In this case, the Skip Hop 3-in-1 Baby Activity Push Walker & Ride On Scooter is a winner.

The 3-in-1 function refers to the walker’s ability to convert from a wagon walker to a ride-on toy scooter and then to a beginner kick-scooter a four-year-old can ride, helmet and all. This guarantees several years of use and play as the child grows.

In walker mode, the handlebars are reversed, and the seat turned over to reveal a roomy storage bucket for toys and whatever else the child wants to shuttle around. In ride-on scooter mode, the handlebars retain their normal position with the storage bucket flipped over to reveal a padded seat allowing kids to comfortably sit and push the scooter onward and backward with their feet. The base of the scooter is specially designed to click the seat in place when used in scooter mode or push-behind walker mode.

As the child transitions to the kick-scooter stage, the seat/bucket is removed altogether leaving the scooter’s base as the perfect standing platform for the proud baby to cruise around. By this time, the child would have gained plenty of riding confidence having had enough practice through the first two stages. The handlebar is adjustable to fit the child’s riding height. Kids can do this themselves.

The Skip Hop 3-in-1 Scooter also comes with a headlight, sings songs, and can make a honking sound that’s triggered by pushing a button on the scooter’s front. The electronic features require three AAA batteries (not included). Kids will have plenty of fun with this baby walking toy while building motor skills, balance, and coordination.

The scooter weighs 5.4 pounds, which is neither too heavy nor too lightweight for kids. It has dimensions measuring 22.75 inches long, 13.5 inches wide, and 20.5 inches high. The walker is not delivered assembled, but it is frustration-free to do. Our only concern with the Skip Hop 3-in-1 Scooter is the absence of speed limiters to prevent the scooter from going too fast, especially on smooth surfaces. Other than that, this is one of the coolest and most functional baby walking toys you can get right now.
