Now that Noah is four months old, I was looking for a walker or activity center for him. I didn’t even know that Jeep made products for babies, but was so excited to get the Jeep Renegade Walker for him to try out. It is so cute, because it looks like a little jeep for your baby. It was very easy to assemble, and took my husband about fifteen minutes to put together. It is lightweight, very stable and has good support. The toys include a steering wheel, that makes engine noises, beeps and plays music. It also has two side toys, one is a mirror and the other is a spin toy. Noah was immediately attracted to them and they held his attention. The colors are bright and visually stimulating. The Jeep will be useful for us as a tool to help him learn to sit up and play, as well as strengthen his legs. One more thing I noticed, it is easy to wipe down and clean. I do have safety concerns about using walkers, and was happy to learn that Jeep Renegade Walker meets the JPMA safety standards. The most important part is up to parents to supervise their children in walkers at all times.
New walkers that meet the voluntary Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) standards, including being too wide to fit through a standard doorway, or having features, such as a gripping mechanism, to stop the walker at the edge of a step, are safer than older ones, but they are still a possible source of injuries for children. Parents should also be aware that stationary activity centers are a good alternative to mobile walkers. If using a mobile walker, parents should follow the Consumer Product Safety Recommendations and:
- close the door or gate at the top of the stairs
- keep children within view
- keep children away from hot surfaces and containers
- beware of dangling appliance cords
- keep children away from toilets, swimming pools and other sources of water
Since 75 percent of injuries are related to falls down stairs, in addition to the above recommendations, don’t use a baby walker near stairs, even if you have a gate on the stairs. The Jeep Renegade Walker has also received terrific reviews on Amazon where you can purchase it. It is also available at Kolcraft.com, Toys R Us, Walmart, and many other retail stores.
There’s rugged Jeep styling down to the 7 slot grille and round headlights.
