By comparison, the Kolcraft Sit & Step 2-In-1 Baby Activity Center and the Evenflo Walk Around Exersaucer have several things in common. For instance, they both offer Baby a safe place to play, as well as a safe place to begin learning the art of walking. Both the Kolcraft and the Evenflo Exersaucer also offer seats that swivel 360 degrees, allowing your little one to explore all of the fun, interactive toys. Both also offer snack trays, as well as electronic toys with fun sounds or songs. Both the Kolcraft Activity Center and the Evenflo Exersaucer have a minimum weight recommendation of about 14 pounds, or when Baby can hold his/her head up unassisted.Both also require batteries for the electronic toys and offer multiple height adjustments.
As for the differences, the Kolcraft Activity Center offers 5 pounds more for weight capacity, resulting in a 30 pound maximum weight recommendation, whereas the Evenflo Exersaucer cuts off at 25 pounds or 30″. Now the Kolcraft doesn’t just stop at 30 pounds, in fact, once your little one grows out of the activity center, it actually transforms into a baby push walker with a wide stance, to make learning to walk safe, and fun. The Evenflo Exersaucer has three legs, two with wheels and one that suctions to the floor to provide a pivot point. Inevitably, your little one will be able to walk around in circles. If Baby is too young for walking, simply apply the brakes attached to both wheels.
As far as prices go, the Kolcraft Activity Center is cheaper, with a listing price of $99.99, and a current sale price of $90.79 at Amazon, it’s almost one hundred dollars cheaper. The Evenflo Walk Around Exersaucer is listed for $189.99 at Amazon. I looked to see if it was listed anywhere else for cheaper, and I came up empty handed. Walmart did have it listed at one time for $55.00, but it’s no longer available.
Both the Kolcraft Sit & Step Activity Center and the Evenflo Walk Around Exersaucer reviewed well, however, the Evenflo did the best. The Kolcraft had 11 out of 16 reviewers rate it 4 to 5 stars, with 5 being the max, while the Evenflo Exersaucer had 27 out of 35 reviewers rate it 4 to 5 stars.
So, lets review. The Kolcraft Baby Activity Center costs less, offers a higher maximum weight recommendation, and transforms into a baby push walker. The Evenflo Exersaucer costs more but also reviewed better, and it offers secure mobility while learning to walk at a much younger age.
