Parents rate baby walkers from Fisher-Price, Graco, Mothercare and more. See which brand is best for comfort, ease of use, cleaning and value.

Baby walkers – seats with wheeled frames that allow your baby to trundle along using their feet – can be a great option for babies who want to explore but can't yet walk unaided.

While baby walkers are relatively affordable, typically costing from around £25, there's a big difference between the best and worst brands.

Our 2014 baby survey revealed parents' favourite – and least favourite – baby walker brands, based on how easy their own babies' walkers were to use, how comfy their baby looked, and the all-important value for money factor.
