Toys That Can Help Your Kid Learn To Walk

ADVERTISEMENT

The toys you surround your kid with can be integral to their learning that bipedal process known as walking, because they can promote things like balance and motivation. That’s why pull toys have been so popular for generations — giving your kid an adorable alligator (or dog or frog, really any species works) on a string gives them something to focus on other than the fact that they only have 2 points of contact with the planet. Getting lil’ Fido to follow along practically tricks them into walking themselves, but fair warning. You cannot employ this same technique when teaching them to drive in 15 years.
