Top 10 Toys to Help Your Baby Walk

Like if this guide is helpful
Most babies learn to walk as the natural order of things, but sometimes they need a little helping hand to strengthen their leg muscles, as well as their motor skills, confidence, and motivation. Parents and babies have a variety of toy choices that teach young children walking skills, while entertaining and educating babies and toddlers at the same time. From activity centres to shopping carts, toys both large and small help get babies moving, while perfecting their walking skills. Shoppers can find the top toys that help their babies walk in both new and used condition on eBay.

Stationary activity centres come in all sizes and varieties. Some come in the shape of tables that babies learn to pull themselves up on to play while standing and holding on. Colourful toys keep baby entertained, while babies strengthen and develop their leg muscles. Sounds and light help with brain development and eventually babies learn to let go of the table and stand on their own.

A cross between a Johnny Jump Up and an exersaucer, stationary activity jumpers help develop leg muscles by allowing babies to jump up and down on top of a plastic surface that moves up and down with them. They do this from a soft seat. The seat usually spins around in different directions and the toys line the surrounding table that engage babies with sounds, lights, and different textures.

Outdoor playsets feature bright colours to attract a baby's eye and include small slides, swings, and hideouts that keep little ones entertained.

Some play yards come with mesh enclosures, while others come with plastic gate material that can adjust in size and shape. Once babies learn to walk without holding on, they are good enclosed areas to practise independent walking skills.


5 Baby Tricycles

Babies build up their leg muscles stepping along the floor or the ground to propel their trike.
