No Speed Adjusting AnymoreFirst Steps VT61773
They don't make the stoppers to support wheel speed anymore, it is dangerous to baby when they speed up. They doen't mention it on the product's ads until we bought it, not recommend this product !
Purchased in for $40.
Hours of fun and learningFirst Steps VT61763
My little one loves this walker! It has been a great help in helping her learn to walk. She spends so much time pushing it around the house and building her confidence.
The sounds are a cute feature too!
Purchased at ALDI.
great productFirst Steps VT61773
Love this toy for my little girl. We won this toy at a local raffle. She plays with it everyday. I started letting her play with it form the recommended 6 months plus. She started to play with the game part first that can be detached from the walker. She is now 8 months and standing but i find the walker isn't safe until baby can walk.
Excellent - green handle model the bestFirst Steps
Vtech has two models, one with a red handle and one with a green. Unlike the red handle, the green handle has a rubber strip around the back wheels that give better traction on floor boards and tiles and you are able to lock the back wheels as well. AND is $10 cheaper than the red handle model. I could only find the green handle model at Kmart for $49, as opposed to red handle model at BigW for $59. I have read that the front play panel which comes off had a habit of falling off while the child is pushing the walker. I have found as long as it... Read moreis attached properly this doesn't happen. Also people have commented that the phone doesn't have a cord. I have found this a good thing. If it did the cord would need to be long enough the child could put it to their ear and that means it could become rapped around the wheels, and my boy loves to hand me the phone to say hello. Used as a walker the phone doesn't fall off either so no need for a cord. The music is good and my child really enjoys the front panel. I would highly recommend this model, my little boy pulled himself up and started walking with this as soon as we put it in front of him at 8 months. A month later and he practically runs behind it.
Fun but flimsyFirst Steps VT61773
This walker has a great activity panel, but the walker is way to flimsy and always topples. And my baby can stand and cruise quite competently. I was super keen for this particular walker but found competing brands much sturdier. i wouldn't recommend this walker to anyone in the future.
It's good for balanceFirst Steps VT61773
My son enjoys playing with it however the wheels allow it to go to fast and he falls over because of this. Another fault my child got his finger caught in the flap for the barn door which caused a bruise. It has improved his balance when we put it up against something so it doesn't travel too fast for him.
Great Activity WalkerFirst Steps VT61763
I bought this for my son when he first started to cruise around furniture. This has probably been one of the best toys we have bought, as he has used it frequently for over a year now.
Even after he had outgrown the walker part of it, he still loves to use the activity board to play with.
My only annoyance would be that the phone handle isn't attached to the board by anything and is often misplaced around the house - other than that it's a great toy.
Mainly goodFirst Steps VT61773
The activity board is fantastic and I can see my little one getting lots of enjoyment from it for years to come. My only negative for the walker is that sometimes when it falls when she leans back a little too far or it gets away from her, she gets hurt, once even cutting her lip. I imagine it would be difficult to stop this from happening though.
Best toy everFirst Steps VT61773
Best $50 I have ever spent. I have had this toy for about 5 months. My baby loves it. Loves it as a walker and loves the toys on the front. Really the only toy you need. I take mine everywhere. Quite simply the best toy ever
Love it.First Steps
Lovely colours, baby enjoys the attachments and corresponding sounds. Enjoyable without the music also. Familiar tunes for parents to sing along to, a pleasant English voice instead of an over-the-top American accent is a nice change. Good size handle for baby to hold to walk. Chose this item after reading these reviews, compared to other brands. Pretty spot on. Worth the extra money.
Accent. Variety of colours. Detachable front for floor play.
Some of the musical sounds are very much like an annoying pokie machine and the volume levels are loud and really loud. It moves along quite fast when baby is first learning to walk with it (need to hold it)
Great Walker!!!!First Steps
Not only was this great for teaching my daughter to walk, she loved the interactive, detachable lights and sounds face.
The only issue is the stability of the walker, we needed to hold it initially as it rolls away from under them as they push it. As they work out how to keep it stable it was awesome and the best thing for helping her to learn to walk. She took her first steps unassisted at just under 11 months and I think this was aided by this products use in the months prior.
Detachable lights and sounds face, best product for learning to walk.
Stability. wasn't very stable initially until they learn to balance on it.
Lots of activitiesFirst Steps
Great little walker. Whilst my 10 month old isn't quite ready to use it as a walker, he absolutely loves the play centre on the front.
The only thing to be weary of is the shape cut outs at the top. They are attached to a short elastic string and when my son pulls the shapes off the string snaps back and has got his finger a few times.
Lots to play with on the front. Easy to assemble and reasonable price.
Short elastic string attached to shape cut outs that snaps back when pulled.
Best walkerFirst Steps
Fantastic walker that you can still use well before your baby is walking as the electronic part is detachable. We put the walker part together about a month after we bought it thinking my daughter could just sit up and play with it as she was only just standing and not interested in walking at all but as soon as it was together she wanted to push it and now loves (assisted) walking. The grooves on the wheels help to slow down the walker so she doesn't go so quick which was a real problem with another cheap walker we were given with smooth wheel... Read mores. Bought this at 50% off, not sure I would have paid full retail for it but definitely a good buy at 50% off. Lots of activities, textured wheels to reduce speed Phone piece is not permanently attached and is always getting lost. Expensive if paying full price
A multifunction walkerFirst Steps
We bought this walker for our son for his first Christmas. At about 5 months old he started to play with the front toys (includes a phone and mini piano etc) He was constantly choosing this toy to play with amongst all the others, so it was good you can detach it from the walker. About a month later he started to both sit and crawl so this toy became even better.
At first he would sit and play with the front toys again, but then he started to crawl holding onto it. Over the next few months he continued to learn to walk on it and soon enough... Read more he could. The only downside is its very noisy. But my son - even though he can already walk, wont let us take this away, he loves to play with it too much. In my opinion this was one of the best purchases we made for our son because of the countless hours of play! Plus we hardly ever have to replace the batteries. Good for all ages, fun and interactive Can be noisy

Top marks for a Vtech toy!First Steps
Yesterday I purchased this toy for our twin boys, as they begin to stand and are trying to walk at 7 months and found this terrific all-in-one toy.
With a sturdy design which supported and encouraged the baby's first steps. It has a detachable learning centre packed with activities. With shapes and light-up musical keys which introduces letters, words, numbers, animals, colours, catchy sing-along songs and melodies that are in an English accent and not American.
A moving butterfly, discs and rollers develop hand skills and a removable rat... Read moretling phone is great pretend playing with them. I agree with previous review about having a cord to the phone to prevent loss but perhaps its a safety issue also?! It was really easy to assemble and can be folded and stored away. It's a very versatile, as the toy tray can come off so they can sit and play with it on the floor, then sit up and play with it on the stand, if it moves then crawl after it. Then they can use it as a walker. A great toy and recommended to all babies from 6 months and up.
