When presented to infants as a stationary toy, the Fisher Price Activity Walker's hands-on activities stimulate curiosity and develop the capacity for self-initiated exploration and discovery. For some children, it provides their first experience in independent play. Manipulation of the moving parts provides an early exercise in developing the fine motor control that will be needed for writing, drawing, and manipulation activities needed throughout life.
When opened up and set on its wheels, the Fisher Price Activity Walker provides independent support and stability to bolster the child's confidence to venture a bit farther afield. Equally important, such activity contributes to the large muscle motor control that first develops during the toddler years.
In keeping with the Fisher-Price philosophy, the Activity Walker stimulates curiosity, encourages independent play, and contributes to a sense of self-confidence. All these serve as important contributions to the budding personality at this malleable stage of life.
