Best Baby Toy - 12-24 months - GOLD - Toys 'R' Us Bruin Deluxe Activity Walker

Our testers said: “The walker is quite sturdy and doesn't move too quickly for little legs to learn with. The play area isn't over complicated which meant my 7-month-old took to it really quickly. My 3 year old even loved to play with it. Value for money, I think it is brilliant.”
