Radio Flyer Classic Walker Wagon
When Monkey first started pulling up on furniture and learning to walk, we didn’t have much furniture for her to explore along. I wanted to encourage her to keep learning to walk, but I knew the walkers of my childhood were discouraged by childhood development professionals. The old walkers are now considered dangerous, and possibly even discourage walking. But Monkey was starting to push around empty diaper boxes, and was pulling up on everything she could find. So I did my research, and found a number of great toys for a little one to push around. We ended up buying the one I thought would have the most utility past this finite stage of Monkey’s development.
Enter, the Radio Flyer Classic Walker Wagon. This beautifully designed wagon, based on the Radio Flyer wagons we all know and love, is perfect for beginning walkers. There’s a bar, just within reach, for a little one to grab and pull themselves up on. The wheels offer a little resistance, so that the wagon doesn’t roll away while baby is trying to stand up. Monkey had a blast pushing her wagon around and loading it up with her favorite toys (and the dog’s toys, for that matter). There’s even a bumper on the front, to protect both the wagon and your furniture and walls.
The last time we moved, I was very sad that the removable wooden sides were lost by our movers. Fortunately, replacement parts are available for sale on Radio Flyer’s website. So even if your little one is very rough on this wagon, or, like us, you manage to lose some pieces, rest assured that parts can be replaced. To us, this wagon was a great investment. Monkey will enjoy this wagon through age four, so it definitely meets my original criterion of being good for more than one stage of development. Add to that the fact that the missing parts can be replaced, and this becomes a real home run for us, with our frequent moves.
This toy is more expensive than most toys you get for a child around one year old, but it will provide several years of entertainment, and it looks so stinking good when it’s set up as a birthday or Christmas gift. If you’re a grandparent, other relative, or friend, this is a great pick for holidays or birthdays. It's a solid five egg pick.
