My son is 2 and is doing the same thing. If you make try and make him walk he just sits on the floor and refuses to move. We recently got one of those skateboards that attach to the pram and he loves it.

Mine doesn't, she will stay there until i pick her up again, usually near a main road so i worry she will run on to it if i walk away.  So i can't win. I try the pusher but it's the same reaction. thanks heaps though, it's nice to know it's not just me!
