When Paul from When I Was A Kid offered to send us a toy to review we jumped at the chance! I love wooden toys for their classic look and durability so I was really excited to see what we would receive!
When the postman brought us the Wooden Baby Walker with Blocks, I couldn’t hide my delight! This is exactly the kind of classic toy that I could see Pumpkin getting many hours of fun from.
Usually I open new toys while Pumpkin is asleep so I can get all the fiddly assembly bits done easily. But hubby was so keen to get going with the walker that he decided to get it out and assemble it for her to play with right away. I was pleasantly surprised with how quick and easy it was to put together. Just a couple of screws to assemble the handle, and screw it onto the base, and away you go!
The walker itself is strong, sturdy but easy to push. Its weighty enough that Pumpkin can use it to help her stand. She loves walking up and down the lounge with it, grinning from ear to ear as she feels so clever! The wheels are smooth and she has tested it on both the lounge carpet and kitchen lino and both work well.
My favourite feature of this toy is the 24 wooden blocks. I love the bright colours and rounded corners. Pumpkin loves unpacking them, spreading them across the room, and the satisfying noise they make when you bang them together! As she gets older I am sure she will enjoy building with them (and hopefully packing them away again!).
I thought I would leave you with my first attempt at a Vlog. Click play to Pumpkin playing with the walker and me chatting about it (cringe alert!!).
