VTech Sit-to-Stand

The Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker was made to grow with your baby, says VTech: “Little ones can play with the standalone activity panel on the floor while discovering animals, colors, music, shapes and numbers. Attach the panel to the walker as babies grow, and they’ll continue to learn as they move along.”

Your baby will enjoy spinning the three flowers to hear fun phrases, sound effects, and a melody, the company says, or pressing the piano keys to learn colors, numbers and animal sounds.” Baby can also press the piano keys to play piano notes. When a melody is playing, pressing the piano keys will activate fun animal sounds on top of the melody. “In both modes, little ones will enjoy picking up the phone to hear animals singing and opening or closing the swinging door to play hide-and-seek with the friendly cow.”
