Spoon Walker Review by Leslie Talley

2919 Canton Street
Dallas, TX 75226

The Joovy Spoon combines two everyday products into one. Essentially, the Joovy Spoon is just a walker. The large tray, however, includes a removable and dishwasher-friendly insert for easy clean up after meals. These features make the Joovy Spoon a great highchair alternative. The Spoon’s base is larger than the tray which keeps little fingers safe while learning how to maneuver through rooms and doorways. The seat pad is comfortable, supportive and best of all machine washable. Joovy offers four color options to choose from for the seat pad: Charcoal, Blueberry, Greenie, and Purpleness. The color options offer a great change from the overly bright and childish choices on the market making it a great addition to any home’s décor. The Spoon is BPA, PVC and Phthalate Free.

The Spoon has three height positions which can be easily adjusted and locked into place with a simple twist of a button. The Spoon is intended for a baby that can sit unaided, weighs less than 30 pounds and is less than 33.5 inches tall.

I like that the Spoon is easy and simple to use and that it has a relatively compact fold. The walker easily fits through doorways and the large tray is great for holding lots of toys.

I found the seat pad difficult to install but realize it probably has to be that way for safety reasons. It would be nice if it came already installed. It would also be nice if the wheels could lock to prevent runaway babies during mealtime as well as those times when you need them happy but immobile.

The Joovy Spoon is a great walker and I like the convenience that it provides as a highchair alternative. I would recommend the Spoon to anyone looking for the ease of a walker and highchair combination especially those tight on space. Although it seems pricey; the simple, clean design and multiple use option makes it a great item for any family.
