CHICCO Penguin Activity Walker vs FISHER PRICE Musical Lion Walker

12:39:00 AM

We got these two during Cloud's baptismal when he was 3 months old and just opened when he reached 7 months old now that he can sit on his own. We opened them both at the same time so he has two choices and to maximize their uses.

I know these two costs 3,000php above but will update this entry as soon as I have the exact amount.  

Chicco has a bigger and heavier packaging than Fisher Price. 

For the assembly, I find Chicco easy to assemble as the wheel part are pre assembled so you just insert it on the front frame until you hear a "click" when is slides properly into place. You don't need tools for this which is a plus. 

On the other hand, Fisher Price comes with small parts and screws so you better ready your tools before assembling this one. Hubby spent more than 15 minutes in putting them altogether, from wheels to back frame to handle. All of them are attached with screws which is a good thing for security purpose. Fisher price is sturdier that toddlers can play this too. Siguro kahit ihagis pa buo pa din siya :)

ON Button. Chicco's on button is located just on the left side of the front frame which is very accessible while FP is located at the back. 

Chicco has a wheel lock (see below picture) to stop the rotation of the rear wheels. Fisher price has none. 

So now let us check their features one by one. 

As the toy is pushed forwards, an entertaining tune is played, if baby stops, the music also stops and and this encourages him to keep going. 

Activity Centre Function
This first steps also has an activity centre with lights, sounds and lots of play activities, these entertain and amuse baby whilst stimulating his movements, visual and hearing skills and also logical association ability.

Activity Centre Details
1. Slots for the playblocks: baby slots in the blocks which fall through a special channel into the basket at the bottom. When the blocks are moving, they trigger a lively sound and light effect.

2. Left side activity: moving it forwards or backwards will activate a funny sound effect. 

3. Right side activity with mirror: moving it forwards or backwards will activate a lively tune and a light effect. 

4. Sliding fish: when the fish is moved it activates a funny side effect accompanied by flashing lights. 

Gross motor: Lights dance and music plays as baby pushes lion along, encouraging baby to walk. 

Fine Motor: Spin, flip, press! Lots of busy hands on activities will help strengthen fine motor skills. 

Sensory: Lights, music and hands on fun stimulate baby's developing senses of sight, sound and touch. 

Balance and coordination: Sitting up for play, or standing, walking and pushing the lion along, helps baby develop balance and coordination too!

* 2 "grow with me" ways to play
* Musical piano keys & light up nose
* Bat-at rollerball ears & cute clacker bead toes
* Mirror with peek a boo flip page
* Colorful spinning dial & slider butterfly

To tally this up:
1. Price - ?
2. Assembly - Chicco
3. Structure - Fisher Price
4. Wheel Lock - Chicco
5. Features - Both
6. Look / Appeal - Fisher Price
7. Locally available - Both

So far Cloud is enjoying these two and these will be his buddy until he gets to know how to walk on his own.

I hope I helped you out in choosing walker for your little ones.

Thank you for the time reading this. :)

Much Love,

  1. The lion seems like a lot of fun with more activities. But, I do prefer a toy to be easy to assemble. How about you? Which one do you prefer?

    1. I still prefer the lion even it's a bit hard to assemble as it has better structure than the penguin. The penguin looks brittle and lack of support unlike the lion.

  2. I agree, I prefer the Fisher Price's look. It's so cute!

    1. I couldn't agree more. Thank you for the visit Ms. Rowena :)

  3. I like fisher price toys! They're very sturdy!

  4. In terms of appearance and sturdiness, the lion wins! :)

  5. my daughter used to have these toys before. she's 8 now and until now my niece still has it and playing with it. :)

    1. Wow, sulit pala sila!

      Thank you for the visit mommy! :)

  6. My nephew used to have this and it's indeed very interesting. So cute!

  7. Nice guide for new mums! You know, I regret not knowing about push type walkers before. We bought the usual kind and it didn't help my son learn to walk at all!

    1. Awww! Lo still uses the old kind of walker because the push walker is too old for him to use.

  8. The lion for me as well! :) These are the kind of toys that grow with your child. My toddlers still play with theirs till now. Hehe

    1. I agree mommy! These will be a hands-me-down for my future children and even to my pamangkins :)

  9. Very detailed comparison here. This is very useful for mothers with children who are in this particular age of training to walk.

  10. I say your son's got the best of both worlds. He's so lucky to have received both toys as baptismal gifts. I'll share this review with my mommy friends. -- Maria Teresa Figuerres

    1. You are right mommy, we saved a lot from buying these push walkers. I know these are very expensive compared to the old kind of walker. Thank you!

  11. my daughter had the same kinda toy when she was little but from a diff brand and loved it too, one of her favorites :)

    1. From what brand? I bet that is cute as these two push walkers. :)

  12. I've always wanted to buy an activity walker for my girls but the husband doesn't approve. Hehe. Though I was eyeing another brand :)) But these two looks really nice :)

  13. I like the Fisher Price :) My children also used walkers similar to these, but I don't know the brand. It can be transformed into a table na rin.

  14. Chicco is quite an expensive brand but very durable, and easy to clean. Yung mga toys ng anak ko puro naipamana na sa mga smaller kids.


Would love to hear your thoughts! :)
