My dd is 1 in a couple of weeks and think these looked fab, just wondering if the little ones are better for little ones or if a large would get more mileage??!

We have the smaller one - have had it since DC1 was about 1 (now nearly 5), and has had lots of use. DC2 (aged 3) learnt to walk by pushing it along. Found it much better than a baby walker as it swivels in all directions, and DC2 still uses it to ride on. DC3 is one in a couple of weeks and is pushing it around lots, but still can't sit on it with feet reaching floor, so would take a long time to get to that stage with the larger one.

I would say your DD would get lots of use from a small one, it is a lovely toy.

Various people told me that they'll get use out of a big one for longer (pushing it around then graduating to sitting on it) but I got DD a small one partly because I wanted something that DS (3 years older) couldn't take over the way he tends to with her other toys (hence something that was too small for a 4yo was a Good Thing). And that seems to have worked...

We gotthe big one but DD was older. And I had to keep stopping DS1 ( who at that stage was about 12) from using it.

They are fab - I want a grown up version

we got dd a small one for her 1st birthday and it's perfect for her still (15m) and will be for a long time to come too.
I wondered about the size of it too, but I'm glad we bought the smaller one.
It's a really nice toy. We got ours from which I think was the best deal when I was looking.

We got the small one and my 12 year old still uses it. There's not that much difference between the 2. It's like a cute little pet.

I got Ds2 the small one for his first birthday.
His legs still dont reach the floor at 16 months! lol but he does love it and pushes it around like a pet. He will very soon be able to ride on it!
DS1 can ride on it no problem at age 3.9 so I'd say get a small one or your DD wontbe able to use it for ages!
