Here is an in-depth comparison of CHICCO Penguin Activity Walker and FISHER-PRICE Musical Lion Walker.
Got these two during Cloud’s baptismal when he was 3 months old and just opened when he reached 7 months old now that he can sit on his own. We opened them both at the same time so he has two choices and to maximize their uses.
I know these two costs 3,000php above but will update this entry as soon as I have the exact amount.
Chicco Penguin Activity Walker has a bigger and heavier packaging than Fisher-Price Musical Lion Walker.
For the assembly, I find the Chicco one easy to assemble as the wheel part are pre-assembled so you just insert it on the front frame until you hear a “click” when it slides properly into place. Tools won’t be needed which is a plus.
On the other hand, the Fisher-Price Musical Lion Walker comes with small parts and screws so you better ready your tools before assembling this one. Hubby spent more than 15 minutes in putting them all together. All of them are attached with screws which is a good thing for security purpose.
Fisher-Price is sturdier that toddlers can play this too.
Siguro kahit ihagis pa buo pa din siya 🙂
ON Button. Chicco’s on button is located just on the left side of the front frame which is very accessible while FP is located at the back.
Chicco has a wheel lock (see below picture) to stop the rotation of the rear wheels. Fisher-Price has none.
So now let us check their features one by one.
As the toy is pushed forwards, an entertaining tune is played, if the baby stops, the music also stops and this encourages him to keep going.
Activity Centre Function
This first steps also has an activity center with lights, sounds and lots of play activities, these entertain and amuse baby whilst stimulating his movements, visual and hearing skills and also logical association ability.
Activity Centre Details
1. Slots for the play blocks: baby slots in the blocks which fall through a special channel into the basket at the bottom. When the blocks are moving, they trigger a lively sound and light effect.
2. Left side activity: moving it forwards or backward will activate a funny sound effect.
3. Right side activity with mirror: moving it forwards or backward will activate a lively tune and a light effect.
4. Sliding fish: when the fish is moved it activates a funny side effect accompanied by flashing lights.
Gross motor: Lights dance and music play as baby pushes lion along, encouraging baby to walk.
Fine Motor: Spin, flip, press! Lots of busy hands-on activities will help strengthen fine motor skills.
Sensory: Lights, music, and hands-on fun stimulate baby’s developing senses of sight, sound, and touch.
Balance and coordination: Sitting up for play, or standing, walking and pushing the lion along, helps baby develop balance and coordination too!
