What are walk-on or ride-on toys?
Usually known as ride-on toys or ride-on vehicles, there are also walk-on toys as well. They are toys that a child can play with to further develop their walking or riding skills, depending on the toy. They come in many different shapes and sizes; ride-on toys can range from bicycles and wagons to rocking horses and bike crates while walk-on toys come in kinderboards, walkers, balancing discs and swings that allow your child's feet to touch the ground.
Why are ride-on toys good for toddlers?
Walk-on toys and ride-on toys are great for helping toddlers develop their gross motor skills, develop a sense of balance and stimulate their vestibular systems so that they have a greater sense of awareness for their own bodies that allow them to walk and ride with more confidence and general ability. Using these toys also involves the large muscles in their bodies, such as the legs and arms, and are important for overall movement and coordination. By riding on or walking with a walk-on or ride-on toy, your child can practice using their balance, coordination and motor skills, which will help them develop these important skills further.
What are the benefits of ride-on toys?
Ride-on toys offer many benefits for toddlers, including:
- Developing gross motor skills
- Improving coordination
- Building strength
- Increasing balance
- Encouraging active play
- Providing a sense of independence
- Boosting confidence
Ride-on toys are a great way for your toddler to have fun while they learn and develop important gross motor skills. With so many different ride-on toys to choose from, you're sure to find the perfect one for your child at Alex & Moo.
Are ride-on toys worth it?

As with many of our products at Alex & Moo, our walk-on and ride-on toys are often made with wood to be a sustainable and environmentally-friendly alternative to cheaper, plastic ride-on toys. Our brands are popular for their high-quality products and we encourage the usage of wooden ride-on toys such as kinderboards, wishbone trikes and wooden baby walkers for a great experience for your child and the environment.

Doll is as described, her hair covers the implant a bit much but that is a design thing & I can cut it so that my cochlear implant wearing 2 year old can see that her doll wears a processor too - and doesn’t take it off! Thank you for making these available.
These plates are fantastic! We use them all the time - for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The colours are gorgeous and fun. The quality is high - easy to clean in the dishwasher too.
We love these little soft dolls which we all call "sisters"
Well made and so soft - really beautiful
These are delightful soft dolls (which we have called sisters) and to have the Organic Cotton Doll Carrier adds so much to my granddaughter's (and my) play each weekend. We love them!
I would like to say what wonderful service I received from Alex and Moo and am very happy to have dealt with your company. So far I haven’t seen the erected bike but look forward to seeing my little one enjoying her birthday present.
Products are great and delivery was really quick.
Love these wooden toys, previously bought the ice cream cart and it is still a favourite toy
My two grand children love these cups for their morning smoothies when they come to visit Nanny
Very happy will be ordering more
Interesting and activities useful for curious children
With the original 6 pack, there were two cups slightly smaller and made different around the rims. My daughter in law noticed this. I did send a message but no reply as to why this was being in a set of 6. In addition I brought an extra 2 cups to match the 8 plates I akk K do brought. I’m very happy with these products but really thought someone could have acknowledged my original question as to why 2 cups in a sold set of 6, were obviously made different.
Great quality. Will purchase more again soon
Awesome little dummy's, great quality and a much cuter natural rubber option than the little orange ones you can get. The colours and cute little shapes cut out around the mouth piece are just adorable and suit every outfit. Not to mention bub loves them, the Orthodontic Teat is slightly more exaggerated than a normal one which I think is making it easier for bub to keep in her mouth without dropping. Overall 5 stars - can't beat 0% toxins with 100% cuteness.
Couldn’t be more happy. Free delivery and quick. Trike arrived on time. The crate was a great addition and so was the personalised name plate.
This was for my grandsons 1st birthday and he absolutely loves it! He’s not a big kid and I was a bit concerned it may be too big for a while but it’s perfect. He can get on and off of it with ease and was so proud of himself in front of his little friends. Would happily recommend this for any small child. Love the fact the shipping was free and quick so it arrived in plenty of time.
