This item is many things in one: it’s a toy a baby can play with on the floor; a walker to help a toddler on his way; and a colorful educational tool to teach about colors, music, shapes, and animals. Intended for youngsters aged 9 months to 3 years, it will keep a child occupied and out of trouble for a long time. This is one of the best toys for babies or toddlers this year.

The Vtech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker provides an abundance of auditory and visual stimulation for a young child. There’s so much to do! He can insert shape sorters, press the shape buttons, spin the flowers to hear phrases and sound effects, play the piano keys, and talk on the “telephone.” The walker has over 70 sing-along songs, and colorful pictures of animals. He can open and close the swinging door to play “hide ‘n seek” with the cow. And when the activity panel is used for the walker, the panel is motion-activated to play melodies when the walker is pushed.
The Vtech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker is easy to assemble: attach the legs, and the handle snaps on. The wheels are adjustable, so they can be partially locked on smooth floors to avoid slips, or set to “free spinning” on coarser surfaces like carpet. The walker is sturdy and won’t tip over, unless the child is unusually heavy for his age. He can pull himself up and push it all over the house. There is an auto-shutoff for safety, and after use, the legs can come off by pushing the buttons on the handle – then the unit is easier to store. It will also fit into a small suitcase for travel.
There aren’t too many negatives with the Vtech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker. Buyers should be aware, however, that if a child stops interacting with the toy for a time, it may randomly start playing a song for a few seconds, then suddenly switch to a different song, which can be annoying. Also annoying are the loud noises. The help in learning to walk is somewhat questionable, as the child may push the walker into a corner and wall, then be unable to turn around. In addition, a child may become too dependent on this “crutch,” to where it may actually impede his walking independently.
This product is sturdy, colorful, attractive, and stimulates learning and creativity. Youngsters will have hours of fun with it, and become more mobile at the same time. It’s a great product for the price.
