My mom and me just went walmart to check out baby walkers and let me say i was suprised that they were so expensive the cheapest one we found was $59.  I thought I would check on here to see if anyone on here in missouri had one they wanted to get rid of. 

My brother had a little girl 6 mths ago and my mom or me have been watching her 5 days a week.  She hates to be layed down and has to be constanly sitting up.  we cant hold her all the time but if we put her down she cries so we thought a walker might work.  Its cause she likes to be in an upright position so she can look around not just cause she like to be held. 

I'd be willing to pay a fair price for a used one : )  We live in central missouri in between Jeff City and Lake Ozark.  I would be willing to drive down by the springfield area also or up towards Columbia. 

I know its a long shot that anyone in my area would have one but If you do just send me a pm.  

Also if you have any 9 - 12 mth winter clothes especially a winter coat jumper we are looking for those too!

Do you know about Freecycle?  It is a site where people give away their old stuff instead of throwing it out.  Needless to say baby items are popular since they outgrow it so quickly.

This is the Jeff City List

and this is the Lake Ozarks

Good luck!

You should definitely try Freecycle.  Even if nobody has a walker posted to give away you can Post WANTED.  You will be surprised at how generous people can be.  It works.
