6 Wooden Baby Walkers To Help Tots’ Mobility
The most exciting milestone for new parents is seeing their baby take their first steps!
Baby walkers are the perfect first birthday gifts as they help little legs and feet transition from sitting to standing and walking.
What is a Baby Walker?
A baby walker is a device for little tots who can’t walk by themselves. The NHS recommends using baby walkers for only 20 minutes a day to ensure babies’ mobility develops effectively.
Why Wooden Baby Walkers?
Wooden baby walkers are for babies to hold onto and push along. These are great for encouraging infants to pull up and stand on their little feet.
As tots grow and make their first steps, baby push along walkers are perfect for wheeling their favourite toys around the house! Activity walkers are multifunctional, allowing little legs to walk whilst entertaining busy hands with a variety of activities.

Are Baby Walkers Safe?
The biggest question of all is whether baby walkers are safe to use. Our baby walkers are parent-assisted, meaning babies and toddlers can freely walk standing upright with the assistance and supervision of parents. As mentioned earlier, the NHS recommends spending a maximum of 20 minutes a day using baby walkers.
What Age Should a Baby Start Using a Walker?
Baby walkers are designed specially for babies, but the age suitability depends on the product. All Bigjigs Toys’ wooden baby walkers are suitable for babies and toddlers aged 12 months +, who are just learning to walk.
Another way to know if your infant is ready for a baby walker is to see if your baby can place both feet flat on the floor when using the walker. If only their toes are touching the floor, they will need to wait until they’re a bit bigger.
