And the Winner Is: Melissa & Doug Chomp & Clack Alligator Push Toy

Walking is a big milestone that’ll start to creep up near the one-year mark: Baby usually starts to stretch those legs around 12 to 15 months. While the AAP advises against using wheeled baby walkers that kids sit in, there are some safer alternatives you can use to help steer your little one in the right direction. The Chomp & Clack Alligator is an extra-cute push toy that provides a ton of amusement and motivation for a newly walking toddler.

What We Love

  • The multi-sensory wooden toy encourages toddlers to play and discover: The butterfly beads are a blast to spin, and with every step your little one takes, the gators take turns opening and closing their mouths with a soft, clacking noise
  • Kids will develop hand-eye coordination as they walk with the toy, and gives fine and gross motor skills a boost as they grasp the wooden handle
  • The wooden construction offer a sturdy build to prevent tipovers and is finished with child-safe paint
