At this stage of the game LTD has no shortage of toys, everything from the learning kind to the silly kind. However, he has a few that I find myself playing with as well. UK company ELC’s Brilliant Start Lights & Sounds Walker seems to be from the future. Like Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Enterprise the walker separates into two space age units; the walker section and the disc of fun. I dig playing with it because of the skeeball like tube that allows for the four included balls to be swallowed. I dig playing with it because the disc of fun has a whole bunch of cool gears, knobs and piano keys to hit. I dig playing with it because the noises that the walker emits seem to be taken directly from a Looney Tunes cartoon.
Sold in the US through The Little Toy Company, the Brilliant Start Lights & Sounds Walker actually captures LTD’s 13 month old attention span. However, there is one draw back with the product, lately LTD has been flipping it over and just spinning the wheels. The thing features a ton of stuff to flip, twist and push in order to make cool Wiley E Coyote noises and all the kid wants to do is turn it over to see the walker wheels. Hopefully, soon he will put the wheels to better use and use the thing as a walker.
