We first heard about the Little Balance Box a year ago when they started their Kickstarter campaign. After trying both push walkers and seated walkers with our girls, with frustrating results, we were excited to learn that there was a different option on the market. Finally, there’s a single product that lets babies practice all the skills that lead to walking! The Little Balance Box is the one item we suggest to all the new parents we meet.
The inventor of the Little Balance Box, Dr. Shannon Davis PT, DPT, is a mother of two with Doctorate and Masters degrees in Physical Therapy and over a decade of working with developmentally disabled children. The design of the Little Balance Box was born out of her unique experience as a mother and a Doctor of Physical Therapy, and the success of her Kickstarter campaign made it a reality.
Our review of the Little Balance Box from last November compares seated walkers, push walkers, and the Little Balance Box. We encourage you to read our full review, but basically, seated walkers inhibit mobility and don’t let baby practice standing up and sitting down and push walkers are hard to maneuver and tip over easily.
We believe the Little Balance Box is the most versatile walker available. It lets your baby practice standing up and sitting down without tipping over, and the nylon “floating feet” glide over every surface and turn in every direction with little guidance. These features give your baby the freedom and confidence to move where they want, on their own terms. Plus, they aren’t stuck in a seated walker, and don’t become frustrated with the difficult maneuverability of the push walker.
Now that our toddler is walking and running, she doesn’t need the Little Balance Box for standing up or steadying herself while walking. Instead, she and her older sister use it as an activity table. It’s one of the only baby products that we’ve kept around since they still use it every day for wherever their imagination takes them.
There are so many things to love about the affordable Little Balance Box, from its eco-friendly bamboo frame, to its PBA and PVC free table top, to its use beyond toddler-hood.
