The WalkTall™ walker is a groundbreaking toy designed to help your toddler toddle – without the backache!
We are a local family business who want to share with you Sam’s great idea – no more backache for mum and dad, and baby gets to practice walking as much as they like. Sam is a carpenter, craftsman and the creator and co-founder of WalkTall Baby! Ltd. Anna is a busy mum and NHS worker. Tessie is a toddler who mostly likes eating, running about, all things yellow and (currently) sheep.
When Tessie was learning to walk, it was very important to us that she felt safe, supported and in control of her movement. Despite her enthusiasm and commitment to the challenge of walking, Tess took a long time to get confident enough to let go of hands. This meant we spent a lot of time bending down to her level, holding her fingers and marching round the house. Over time, we found that we developed some pain… was it sciatica, a slipped disc? … hunched shoulders, (even more) sleepless nights….
Soon walking practice was also accompanied by a degree of pre-walk stretching, oohs, grunts and fidgeting around muttering comments like “You want to walk again? Really? Now?”
So Sam created the WalkTall™ baby walker. It has helped us to enjoy our daughter’s journey of learning to walk without interference from back pain and match our enthusiasm to hers. Tess is now a confident toddler and still loves her WalkTall™ baby walker, for fun or to help her over difficult, rough surfaces. We think your child is going to love it too!
