I know some of you have these as my search showed one or two threads from last Christmas but has anyone any experience of both? I can't decide a) if G would like one or b) which one would be best.

G is 18m and not quite walking yet. He walks beautifully behind his walker but will only take a few solo steps. I've read reviews on Google which seem to say that walking or not doesn't matter as the children soon work out what to do regardless and as G manages to whizz up and down on the fire engine (!) I've no doubt he'll do the same on one of these. The issue is the 'one direction' or the 'all direction' of the Scuttlebug and the Scramble Bug.

Any thoughts ......?

I know it's a bit late, but thought I'd add a comment for anyone else in a similar dilemma. My 2 were bought a scramble bug (at my request) for Xmas. They aren't walking independently yet but are now confident with walkers/brick trolleys etc and love their bug. DD has learnt to cock her leg over it and often just goes and sits on it. They both use it as a walker (one handle each = less fights!) and often stand at the head end and push it backwards, and because the wheels swivel it turns corners as they lean on it so they can get it round corners and through doorways etc which they couldn't do if it had to be steered with the handles. They'll sit on it and hold on as we push it and I'm sure they'll learn to scoot soon. We like it (and its a perfect height for a footrest  ;) ).

oh hello, what are you all doing in here again?  ;D

Mac we were quite astonished to find that when I got it out of the box for him and put it on the floor that he toddled over to it, wriggled his way on to the seat, grabbed the handle bars and just took off across the room!. Not once did we have to show him, he had whizzing along the hall and steering sussed within moments!!! The only trouble he has now is trying to keep W off it  ::) But, yes, he loves it (I was so relieved because DH had said 'no don't get that, he'll never play with it!' - but he was wrong!!!  :p )

(to be fair he's used W's 'car' before now which requires exactly the same movements to propel it  ;) J will get the hand of it soon, don't worry! Didn't J get a Little Tykes (?sp) car though? Can he get that thing moving? G always goes for them at soft play but doesn't move it an inch, I have to push him round in it  ::)  ;D )




Elle74  ;D I've sat with my feet up on it too  ;D

Tilly I don't know, it never occurred to me to get it out, next time!  ;)

B - Is W too big for G's scuttlebug now?  I was debating whether or not to get one (poss on eBay) for my little chap, to take on holiday in a couple of weeks time as they're nice and portable (he enjoyed whizzing around on another friend's one a couple of months ago) but not if he'll already be too big for one. 

Thanks  :-*

Hello lovely :)

W ADORES G's scuttlebug ::) much to G's dismay!

He's a little bit too big but it doesn't stop him whizzing around on it. I think your little tinker would be fine ;)

Where are you off to for your holiday, any where nice? (On no, I can guess, you're going back to Slurry Pit Farm aren't you, we've booked it up for the whole of July - NOT ;D )

One scuttled into my trolley in Sainsburys this morning ;D DS hasn't seen it yet but he's getting it when he wakes from his nap - hope he likes it!
