My mother bought my boy a baby-walker. At first I think he's much more interested in all the knick-knacks attached to it (piano keyboard and other buttons that resulted in various songs and sounds).
After a few days only playing around with the keyboard etc, he finally took that first step walking with it. And to my surprise, he dashes around in front of me. Now he can almost run with it. I guess he's very impatient until the day he can finally walk on his own. His face was priceless! Serious in a cartoon-ish kind of way.
