A round-up of the play equipment that’s suitable for your baby from 18 months, from ride-ons to push along toys.
Ride-on toys are a great tool for encouraging your toddler’s independence, as well as their co-ordination and balance. Again, there’s a wide variety of options out there – simple wooden tricycles or more fancy choices which play songs and have lights. It’s worth choosing an option that your toddler will grow with if you’re making a bigger purchase, so think about whether there’s a parent handle or not, and if it can be removed at a later date. Also consider if you’ll want to use it indoors or outside, possibly even as an alternative to your buggy on short journeys. If you want to use it outdoors, you’re going to want to make sure it’s easy for you to push (or pick up and carry!) if need be.
