Ten Best Toys That Can Help Your Baby Walk
Walking is one of important development for baby. Most parents are usually anxious about when it will happen and how to help their babies walk earlier.
Basically, bare feet are best when your baby firstly learns to walk. ฺฺIn the meantime, there are many ways to help your baby walk; i.e. "confidence" is one key to do that. You can help your baby be confident by giving him freedom to learn to walk. But you should be around him as to help him avoid falling and getting hurt which will frighten him from starting to walk again.
Another thing that can help your baby walk earlier is "Toy". I think this way is an effecient one. There are various kinds of toys in the market both in department stores or on-line stores for your choices.
n my opinion, choosing appropriate toys for this purpose will be a good idea and great help for your baby. I hereby would like to suggest you ten best toys that can help your baby walk :
1) Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Corn Popper Push Toy
This is probably the first toy that (no pun intended) pops into your mind when you hear the name Fisher-Price. Maybe this will jar your memory: the Push Toy Corn Popper has a long, blue handle (well, "long" if you're 3 years old), and rolls along on two brightly colored red/orange wheels while making great popping sounds as it bounces brightly colored balls inside a clear plastic bubble that's mounted above the wheels. So much for the technical specifications. There must be some unwritten law that every toddler has to have one of these. And with good reason. They're still fun!
2) Safety 1st Sounds n Lights Discovery Walker, Dino
