Activity Walkers

Activity walkers are a fun and engaging way to keep your little one occupied.

They can tinker with the spinner, sliders, peekaboo window and learn about shapes and colours. What fun!

Balance bikes for your eager rider

You read that right - you can teach your toddler how to ride even though they're just a year old! And, balance bikes are no doubt a great start for your adventurous toddler. Balance bikes help your child focus on just one thing first - balancing - before they graduate to their big-kid ride. These bikes also help develop your baby's strength and coordination!

And the best part? Adjustable balance bikes last for years by adapting to your baby's growth and development needs.
