Mother & Baby 2018 Shortlist

At a glance:

One of our favourite things about this cute little walker is the disco ball on the front. Strong enough to withstand climbs and knocks, our panel of mum testers loved how interactive the walker was. 

What they say:

“Light the way to active play with the Light ‘n Go series of toys, designed to use light to inspire your baby to get moving. The 3-in-1 Activity Walker is a walker, standing activity table, and sit & play activity centre all in one.  The walker's projected lights encourage your baby to take their first steps as they grow with this interactive toy.  Featuring 70+ activities, songs, and sounds, the 3-in-1 Walker and Activity Table provides hours of fun for years to come.”

Tested by mum Georgia McGill for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I’d recommend this product for its strength and stability. My daughter is quite heavy handed, and yet even after she had pushed this walker into tables, chairs and climbed all over it, there were no signs of breaking. I would also recommend it for the disco ball at the front, which reflects onto the floor and had my daughter dancing and singing to the melody.

How did the product make your life easier?

Though it didn’t make my life easier, that isn’t to say it made it harder, as my daughter would often play with the toy, then lose interest. For example, she would be playing while I loaded the washing, and would soon stop to help me. However, it did make my life easier a little, as she was happy to sit and play on her own for short periods of time.

Would you choose this product to win?

I don’t think I would, mainly because of the cost. Walkers that do similar things are in shops for around £25, and many mums on a budget will look to the cheapest options. I do think this offers more activities and tasks that allow hours of fun, but I think that for the amount of time the child uses them, the price becomes a big factor.

What changes would you make to the product?

When clicking into the different positions I found that the wheel often became quite stiff, sometimes making the walker hard for my daughter to push. I think that the product could also be a bit louder to help baby remain exited and intrigued.

Tested by mum Sarah Bennett for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would and have, primarily because of the really bright colours, sturdy frame which, when the child is leaning on it doesn’t tip over, and the lights that keep the child entertained. Also, the ability to fold the walker after use makes storing and carrying the product very, very easy.

How did this product make your life easier?

My daughter is 13-months-old and loves the lights, meaning she’s happy to play with it for ages while I do things round the house. She is very happy with her new walker, and even my four-year-old will play with her when it's in table mode.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would, as it is good value for money, has rubber wheels that don’t wear down as quickly as some of the plastic ones I have seen on other, similar walkers, and is really sturdy. The light dome on the front and the several different play modes help keep baby entertained, and it's a bonus that it can be used for a child that is not standing yet, meaning it can grow with them.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing I would change would be the ease of pushing it on laminate flooring. It could be quite hard for a smaller child to push, but was perfect for my 13-month-old as she is not fully walking yet. The walker might also be a bit tricky for some people to put together as it is a bit stiff, but overall both my daughter and I love this product.

Tested my mum Kelly Stevenson for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

100%! It's interactive and very user-friendly from around six-months-old and then, as they grow, they can explore different features - making it a very good lasting toy. The fact that it's 3-in-1 means it not only engages the child for longer, but also grows with them as their motor skills and little brains develop.

How did this product make your life easier?

My little one loved this walker and zoomed all around the house with it! I love that there are so many interaction points, and feel I can leave him exploring on his own whilst I watch him from afar, getting on with my jobs. It keeps him entertained for a really good amount of time and when he does get bored, I can join him and explore some of the features with him.

Would you choose this product to win?

Having previously had the V-Tech walker, which my other children loved, I was keen to explore how this one was better, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The fact that this walker can be used before the child is mobile and is so user friendly for young babies is a real plus. It takes them up to toddler age on a real discovery journey with all the lights, sounds and different experiences. With that in mind, I would definitely choose this one over the others.

What changes would you make to this product?

As a mum, I would look for a promotion on this walker, as I think the £39.99 price tag seems a little on the expensive side. Although it’s undoubtedly good value for money, with everything else one needs to buy when a little one arrives, anything above £30 is quite a big purchase.

Tested by mum Michaela Phillips for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

This walker folds flat, which is brilliant when storage space is an issue, and has different activities so baby doesn't become bored very easily. The product is easy to push yet is heavy enough not to tip it over easily. The legs, when locked, cannot be folded down by mistake, meaning no accidental collapsing, which is a brilliant safety feature. It’s a very sturdy product, and one I would definitely recommend to friends.

How did this product make your life easier?

It’s very good at keeping child occupied while I do other tasks such as preparing tea whilst child is sat playing with the product. The three different stages are very useful, especially when I have younger children visiting, as I can fold it into the folded activity table mode and they can join in the fun too.

Would you choose this product to win?

Out of the walkers that are available I think I would choose this one, as the activities offer a lot more choice, and the light option engages child, who loves following them across the floor. I think this product should win, as I really believe the light option on the walker is a fantastic idea as well, especially combined with the sounds, with this walker covering a much larger range of sensory activities compared to other walkers on the market.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I had to change one thing it would be that the front wheels would swivel rather than stay fixed, the only reason being that the walker can only be moved back and forth, and when my child tries to turn round corners, he has to drag walker sideways.

Tested by mum Jules Wookey for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Definitely, mainly because there are so many different features that I don’t know where to begin! It has the three height settings (sitting, standing and pushing) that accommodate for whatever your baby wants at the time. There are lots of buttons, lights and other sensory features for baby to get stuck in to, which is great for their development. It also folds very smoothly, and is nice and lightweight for easy transportability. All wipe clean too!

How did this product make your life easier?

This walker keeps my daughter entertained for long periods of time, and she enjoys all the features and buttons. If she gets bored of sitting, she can stand or even run along by pushing it as a walker, which I think is a really great idea. Having your child entertained for long periods of time means you can get on with the things you need to get on with as a parent, making life much, much easier.

Would you choose this product to win?

I love this product, as it is totally enjoyable for baby to play with. I haven't seen anything else like this on the market. Though I've seen activity tables and push along walkers, I’ve never encountered the two put together! I found it a little hard to build due to the instructions not being as clear as they could be, but after searching for a video tutorial online I got the hang of it quite quickly! It's a nice size, so isn't too bulky. I think this product should win, as it is a great idea and design from Little Tikes. The weight distribution is great too, so there’s no way of it tipping up like some other walkers I’ve come across.

What changes would you make to this product?

I'd just make the instructions a little clearer and easier to understand. The product itself is great, but wheels can be quite noisy on our laminate flooring, though I can imagine children enjoying this feature.
