Ds has just turned a year and loves his push along walker.this oneThe problem is we have wooden fllors that the wheels just zoom along.Has anybody found a walker that is harder to push along or has gears?
we have a galt brick trolley that has chunky rubber wheels, much harder to push fast.
Thanks Metatron we also have a wooden one that has rubber grips round the wheels but i still runs away from him.
The IKEA metal bin in DH's home office if perfect for this !As far as "real" walkers/trolleys go, we have a multitude of them (3 DSs), and they are all rubbish for a young toddler who is still learning to walk, but good fun once they can walk, IYKWIM.I hope somebody will come along with a more constructive suggestion for you.
PacDog-Ikea it is then
same as pacific my ds pushes our bin along he also has a shopping trolly which is a lot more supportive.
.Bin is nice and slow on wooden floors, still slides on carpets as as smooth bottom, is not heavy and -crucially- does not tip.Simples!
Oh, and it can be filled with things, wow!
Brio wooden push along walkers have adjustable friction/brakes so you can control how fast the wheels go. There are some listed here but the most recent one is green and white and has a sliding lid.hth
pacific you will have to go on dragens den you have a good selling technique
<<curtseys>>But no business bone in my body...That Brio one looks good, moosemama. Can I justify another pushalong toy as DS4 is due soon?
Brio one looks good thanks....though still thinking of the bin idea...
Pacific, exactly which bin at ikea do you mean?Just so that I get the right one!Thanks for the tip!!
I have also got the vtech one. I also have wooden floors so understand what you mean. My ds2 made great friends with my Henry hoover so I like the bin ideaI tried everything to slow down the vtech but nothing worked.
The best baby push walker needs to have the following features:- It has to be stable- It has to be heavy, in fact (the heavier the better)- Wheel resistance to meet the different kinds of floors
