Road-Tested: 11 Of The Best Walkers For Babies In 2024

11 Of The Best Walkers For Babies In 2023

When your baby approaches the 12-month mark, you may find yourself looking for new toys and activities to challenge them both with walking and occupying their time.

Baby walkers are a great, safe way to encourage walking with a sturdy aid - and the best part is, so many walkers double as toys for kids. Filled with blocks, and decorated with bells and whistles; baby walkers these days are multi-purpose, making them a much more enticing investment for parents looking for the best infant walker around.

What Should I Look For In A Baby Walker?

With so many different walkers for babies out there, it can be difficult to find one that's perfect for you and your baby. We've highlighted some of the features you might want to look out for and considerations you might want to factor in before buying.

- Well-working wheels

When looking at walkers for your baby, you should be taking into consideration whether the walker will be used on carpet or floorboards predominantly. This should be taken into account as you'll want a product that can glide easily - but still with a little bit of friction for safety - across your flooring. 

- Bells and whistles

When we say bells and whistles - we mean it in a good way! Most walkers on the market come complete with buttons and sounds, or gadgets and rings. Some even feature a tray-like bottom full of blocks for kids to play with. The fact is, if you can find a walker that doubles as a toy that keeps your baby occupied, you're onto a winner.

Many walkers now come with next-level advancements such as lights that project onto the ground and sounds that keep babies engaged.

- Stable framing

As your child will be using their walker for support as they take their first steps, you must be sure the walker can substantially support your baby as they take those important first steps.

Real review: Katied804, myer.com.au

"I got this for my daughters first birthday but ended up giving it to her early as she was starting to pull herself up a couple weeks beforehand. We both love the lights on it, they have a little cover so eyes are protected when in certain modes. I also liked how the wheels aren’t very free flowing as this stopped it from just rolling away when she was just learning to stand. But now at 15 mi that she’s strong enough to push it around properly. It’s also very easy to swap between walker mode and activity table mode."

Real review: Stacey, catch.com.au

"This car was perfect for my little one. shes at an age where she is curious and hates being locked in the playpen so this item helped me to keep her secure yet she can still move around. My husband assembled it very quickly and its still up and running strong no issues or concerns so far. When my daughter gets bored we convert it into a push toy to help her with walking and when we have little space we also remove the body of it and boom its smaller and just as functional. Would suggest it as a great trendy by versus the boring old walkers!"
