Toddler push toys are pretty handy to encourage your child to walk by imitating things you daily do in and around the house. Without you ever noticing it, your child watches you using a vacuum cleaner or moving the lawn using a lawnmower... and fortunately wants to do the same.
These toys are also useful to help steady your baby's first steps and guide her as she learns to walk by herself and to develop other gross motor skills. Toddler push toys and pull toys are particularly useful for teaching children more about the way her bodies move and function. To a lesser extent they also demonstrate concepts such as cause and effect... if I push the toy, it moves.
Some parents may prefer a push toy rather than the usual buggy or pram for taking their child out to the park, to run errands or when stepping out for a breath of fresh air. Many kids also prefer these brightly colored toys that give them a greater sense of autonomy and freedom than a pram or buggy would.
This Push Around Buggy is in the shape of a car, with a seat for a child along with a little steering wheel and a horn to toot as well. It also comes equipped with its own little boot or storage compartment for your child to stow away all his other little treasures.

This Radio Flyer Classic Red Wagon can also be useful for parents who want to take a toddler (or two) along for various activities. Later your child can use the wagon to push around her dolls and toys, or even perhaps a friend or younger sibling.
You can begin with a simple push toy such as this Push Along Toddler Toy Mirror.to This is something that a child can learn to handle once he starts to sit up unaided.

A little toy truck such as Megcos Auto Trailer can also amuse your child teaching him the connection between his own actions and toy's movements. The design is safe for small kids and it is made from nontoxic materials.

One of the toddler push toys we've the best success with is the Fisher Price corn popper. This was one of the first push toys we bought for a toy library many years ago.

Once your toddler is a little steady on her feet, she may enjoy pull along toys such as this Pull Along Snail or this Fisher-Price Disney's Winnie the Pooh - Pooh's Musical Pop-up Choo Choo.

Parents can also pick other types of toys that let your child engage in pretend play. A push toy shaped like a vacuum cleaner or a lawn mower or a wheel barrow will keep your child busy 'helping' you as go about your daily chores.
