Of the most memorable moments in your baby's development, walking always feels like a (literally!) huge step.  

It makes sense that you'd want to ensure these first steps are as supported as possible. Baby walkers are a safe and fun way of encouraging those tentative steps whilst offering a range of entertaining extras.

The best walkers for babies and toddlers will help their balance, improve their motor skills and increase their confidence as they learn to walk. They may even come with activities to support their hand-eye coordination and physical development.

Walkers are often designed for babies aged six months to sixteen months. However, every baby will be unique. A good way to know if it’s the right time for your baby is if they are able to have their feet flat on the floor when placed in the walker and can hold their head up fairly steady.

Baby walkers can range from a fully supported rocker to a push-along baby walkers. We know that selecting the best baby walker, be it baby walkers for girls or baby walkers for boys, can be a challenge. Thankfully, we've rounded up the 12 best baby walkers, from wooden walker to those with all the added extras, so you can select the perfect one for you.

Safety Notice

  • It’s important your child does not spend too much time in baby walkers or bouncers – using them too often can delay walking. The NHS recommends that you use them for no more than 20 minutes at a time.
  • Make sure that your baby is very closely supervised at all times, never leave them unattended.
  • Make sure that the walker is low enough that your baby can place both feet flat on the floor.  
  • Be sure to read the retailer’s safety guidelines when buying your seated baby walker – they should meet the European Committee for Standardisation standard BS EN 1273:2005.
