Best 9-12 Month Toy: Hape Wonder Walker

As baby starts to move, this is a toy that can (safely) keep up.

As baby’s first birthday nears, their newfound mobility—from crawling to standing to walking—and increasing curiosity make for one very busy kid. A perfect toy to keep them occupied at this on-the-go stage is a push walker, and Hape’s is one of the safest and the best. Here’s why.

What we love

  • This walker is sturdy enough for baby to pull themselves up without it tipping over (a major safety concern), but still easy to push and pull around
  • Baby not quite walking yet? This toy offers developmental games on the sides and the front to keep baby entertained while sitting and crawling
  • Rubber-rimmed wheels mean your floors stay scratch-free
  • At nearly 20 inches tall, this walker is higher than most—perfect for taller toddlers and any growth spurts

Summary

Safe, fun, and educational—what more could you want out of a baby toy?
