Kids can walk with it, they can ride it, they can push it. However they choose to use the YBike Pewi Walking Buddy/Ride-on Riding Toy - Pink you can be sure they're getting something out of it. This is a fun and safe way for your little one to learn body and space awareness and develop early motor skills and a sense of balance. The Pewi is designed differently than traditional walkers in that your child stands and moves freely and learns to fall, using the walker as an aid, instead of being able to lean or prop himself up as with a traditional walker. Your child can also use it as a ride-on toy, using his feet to move around. The multi-directional casters offer easy control, and the non-marking rubber wheels will not damage floors. Designed for indoor or outdoor use on smooth surfaces, the Pewi Walking Buddy is a great way to get little ones up and moving.
