With all the baby gadgets and gear I’ve been reviewing and giving away in the All About Baby series, very little has actually been all about fun. The Step Start Walk ‘N Ride by Playskool is all about fun – with a little bit of helping baby learn to walk thrown in for good measure.playskool walk n ride

About the Step Start Walk ‘N Ride
Two toys in one! As a sturdy, stable walker, the newly designed STEP START WALK ‘N RIDE toy helps babies learn to stand, take their first steps, and walk. It then easily converts to a first ride-on toy, with a locking mechanism that parents can activate. The engaging toy features hands-on busy activities for baby in both modes of play.

My Experience with a Walk ‘N Ride
As you know, any toy or baby item that does double duty is a winner. We have an older version of the Walk ‘N Ride and it’s been a fabulous toy. We bought it when Toddler Boy was just cruising on furniture and the first time he used his, he took off. He pushed that thing around our entire house in Germany for several weeks before he started walking on his own. After that, he used it as a riding toy. We got the Walk ‘N Ride out a month or two ago for Baby Girl to use and she’s enjoyed it as well. Actually, Toddler Boy has liked riding it and playing with the spinners and gears.
Before I bought our Walk ‘N Ride I looked at more expensive push walker toys but couldn’t justify the expense. After using this, I know I made the right choice. It’s stood up beautifully to two children and it definitely works as a walking aid for little ones.

Great Holiday Toy
Recommended for children ages 9 months and up, this is a great holiday gift idea – it’s fun for little ones, helps them learn to walk, doesn’t require batteries and isn’t a real noisemaker. In other words, it’s a winner for the parents, too!

Shop! The Walk ‘N Ride is $24.99 available at most major toy retailers nationwide. It’s currently on sale at HasbroToyShop.com for $19.99. Plus, if you spend $75 at HasbroToyShop.com you receive a $10 coupon to apply to a future purchase.
