The VTech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker is an interactive toy that can help your child with his fine motor skills. It’s a good choice for babies just learning to walk because you can change how fast the walker moves.

Also on the list is the Fisher-Price Little People Lil’ Movers School Bus, which comes with the Little People figures that kids love – including a driver for the bus.
