The Ybike Pewi is the coolest new movement toy. The toddler walker has been modernized and this toy will be a favorite for several years! As your child starts walking, they can start off by pushing the Pewi around the house in different directions. It won’t tip over and they learn to gain their balance. As they become older, the real fun is when they are able to ride on the Pewi and move in different directions! The rubber wheels are non-marring and won’t ruin your floors. It can be used both indoors and outdoors. Find out more information and shop for the Ybike Pewi Ride-On and Walking Buddy.
