Walking babies are bundles of energy that seem to be in constant motion. For parents, it’s equal parts fun and exhausting. Keeping baby amused and occupied helps to contain wild amounts of "get-up-and-go."
This is a great time to look at toys and games that are designed for active play. From products for babies who are not quite walking, to stand-and-play toys, there are plenty to choose from.
Not Quite Walking
Babies who are not yet walking can be a handful, and a challenge to entertain. Walkers and push toys offer the forward motion that active babies crave.
