It’s never easy to decide what to buy for your little ones to help their development. There is so much available now that inevitably you will end up with some baby-related paraphernalia that is hardly touched or not even used at all.
One of the things that has definitely helped Phoebe with her development is a baby walker. I’m not talking about the controversial kind that you put the baby inside of, I mean a push-along walker that helps with balance and taking steps, as well as pushing and pulling. We received a first steps walker as a Christmas gift for Phoebe but she quickly outgrew it, so when I saw the Camper Van walker from Hape, I knew it would be a perfect replacement as it was a bit more ‘grown-up’.
Phoebe is a confident walker so the Hape Camper Van isn’t needed to help develop that skill, but she loves pushing and pulling it along, and practising her driving skills with it. Her new favourite noise is “beep-beep” which she recites as she is racing her walker around the house! She also loves putting her toys and teddies inside the wagon which you can see in the photos. Not only does this makes it more challenging to push, it’s a fun way to transport her toys around with her (for mummy to retrieve from random hiding places later on!).
Suitable from 12 months, the Hape walker is beautifully made, as with everything in the Hape range. We absolutely adore their wooden toys in our house (have a look at my blog post on the recommendations from their range) and I also applaud their commitment to sustainability. Their toys are all lovely quality and are fun, colourful and engaging for little people.
You can buy the Hape walker on Amazon – as with most of my links this isn’t an affiliate link, it’s just to try and be helpful if you fancied the look of the Hape Camper Van walker. I would highly recommend it if you do!
