Through my membership with Business2Blogger, I was presented with the opportunity to review an awesome piece of baby gear: The Juppy Baby Walker! I received one blue Juppy to review free of charge.
You may be wondering what on earth a Juppy is. Well, a Juppy is the perfect piece of baby gear for when your child is just starting to learn to walk - it allows parents to stand upright instead of bending over to help their babies toddle! Let's learn more about this great product through Juppy's family-friendly video.
The Juppy is not like traditional baby walkers. Wheeled "saucer" type walkers can hinder proper development of the leg muscles, and push walkers can increase the risk of injury from falling. Both of these types of baby walkers are bulky and take up too much space. The Juppy, on the other hand, is safe and compact. In fact, it's the only baby walker that can fit in your purse! Plus, it comes with its own carrying case, which makes it very easy to take along with you.
All you do is slip the Juppy on your baby like a pair of pants and hold the straps while your baby walks - it's so simple to use! No more sore shoulders and back from bending over for long periods of time to help your emergent walker balance! The Juppy allows you the freedom to stand up straight, and it is so much more comfortable than bending or kneeling.
I love that you can control how much assistance you provide your baby when using the Juppy. When your little one is just starting to practice walking, you can hold the straps taught and give plenty of support; then when the baby is closer to walking on his or her own, you can hold on lightly and let him or her do most of the work, while still being able to prevent any falls. This is a wonderful system, because it gives the baby a chance to practice new skills with an appropriate level of independence, yet still feel safe knowing a guardian is right there.
The Juppy is recommended for ages 7 months to 13 months, and it is one-size-fits-all for that age range. There is a good deal of room for larger babies, but still plenty of support for smaller babies. The straps can even be adjusted to suit your baby's height, ensuring that you can find the right length to hold comfortably.
You can purchase your own Juppy in blue or pink on TheJuppy.com for just $24.95!
Juppy has generously offered to send one lucky US winner one Juppy Baby Walker in the winner's choice of blue or pink. Thanks, Juppy!
