Why Buy a Pink Baby Walker?

Updated on August 29, 2010

There’s no better activity toy for your little princess than a pink baby walker. Baby walkers are usually made from plastic with wheels and have a seat with leg holes for your baby to sit in. Most models are suitable for babies aged from about four months upwards. Using a baby walker enables your baby to be mobile before he or she learns to walk and babies think they are great fun! Most models have an activity tray with toys fitted around the top to entertain your baby even when she’s not moving.

There are also pink baby walkers designed for older babies and toddlers who are already able to walk. In these models the child does not sit within the walker but instead uses it as a support for standing and pushes it as they walk along. Baby walkers are made by several different toy companies including Vtech, Graco, Tippitoes and First Steps.

So why buy a pink baby walker for your child? Firstly babies love them! It gives them independence before they are able to walk for themselves and will happily entertain your baby while you get on with other things. It is also great exercise for your baby, helping them to develop their leg muscles to get them ready for walking and developing their sense of coordination.

The VTech pink baby walker is one of the most popular models for babies who have just started to pull themselves up and is great for encouraging walking. This is one of the push type walkers and is suitable for babies over six months old. The first steps baby walker, pink is one of the best selling models on Amazon and if you read the reviews you’ll see why. The activity center has lots of interactive play opportunities to keep your little girl happy and teach the basics of the alphabet, numbers, shapes and colors. Well after your baby is walking on her own, she will still enjoy playing with this fun toy.

If you’re looking for a pink car baby walker, this design is made by a couple of different companies and is great fun! The My Child car is a baby rocker walker with activity tray in pink. Your baby can play in the walker when they’re feeling active and then it converts to a soothing rocker at the touch of a button. The activity tray plays tunes and is easily detached. The car walker by Petite Star is suitable from six months and has three different modes – bouncer mode with sounds, lights and music for up to 15 months, exerciser mode for babies who can sit unaided and walker mode for babies from 9 months.

Baby walker safety

There have been some reports that baby walkers are dangerous but this is in fact not the case, the problem is that many parents use them as a substitute babysitter for their child and allow them to use the toy unsupervised. Baby walkers like all baby toys should always be used under supervision and you should never leave your baby alone in a baby walker. Your home should always be adequately baby proofed before putting your baby in a walker as they will now be mobile and able to fall, grab objects, get into cupboards and so on.

To ensure your baby is using her pink baby walker safely, make sure any dangerous objects in your home are out of reach, use baby gates on stairs and at the entrance to your kitchen and other areas of your house, place covers on electrical outlets, lock cupboards containing dangerous items and make sure you buy one of the newer models of baby walker that meet all the relevant safety standards. Your child should always be closely supervised when in their walker.
