View Full Version : walkodile

has anyone used them? i have seen nurserys etc with the big ones and thought they were great but have just seen they now do one for 2 children.

i have a 2.5 yr old starting soon and apparently he is a nightmare for running off (tho i have also noticed mum has next to no control over him!) but he is quite big and i really dont want to be pushing him round everywhere!

any opinions?

dont know what it is.. will google and see! (sorry, not much help!) x

Right, had a look.. very cute idea! They're pretty expensive tho (apart from the one for 2 children) and couldn't you just hold their hands / have the escapee mindee on reins maybe? Just a thought...

If you dont mind spending the money then I think they're probably a great idea and certainly be a talking point at school/nursery etc.

Looks good may have to think about one for our 2 eldest(20mths and 30mths ) as on our busy days we will have 2 babies each in buggies and 1 toddler each, this would allow us to go for a stroll in safety

i think £30 is worth it for the 2 one. i have my own children that are 2.5 and 1.5 plus this new mindee. my 2.5 is a great walker and well behaved but think this would make school runs etc easier as could have them on that rather than getting buggy in and out of car each time.

Much prefer teaching road sense and holding hands / reins / buggies myself, plus you have to carry it home when you've dropped off at school LOL!!

But whatever floats your boat :-)

I saw these in a magazine this week and immediately thought great idea - in principle I think they are - but they wouldn't work for me as I live where there are few pathes and it would make us too wide to walk in saftey. We'll stick with holding hands I think :)

If you can't trust a 2 and a half year old not to run off then I don't think holding one of those would work - much better to have him holding your hand.

I'd feel a bit daft walking along with that:laughing:
Back packs, holding hands for me:thumbsup:

I used to have a 3yr old that would just sit on the floor when she'd have enough walking - that would really hold the walkodile up :crying: :crying: :crying: :ROFL1: :ROFL1: :ROFL1:

What happens if one of the children trip and fall over!! You'd have a pile up of kids all falling on top of each other!
