    Perfect Purchase for my Daughter

    from South Park, PA – Verified Buyer

    I was torn between this product and another on this site that our daycare actually uses. Ultimately, I think this was the better purchase because the back of the product is flush. It allows the step stool to get very close to all of our counters -- bathroom and kitchen. The stabilization feet (for lack of a better description) stick out to the sides of the product, not to the be of the product like other step stools. Definitely recommend keeping this product against the cabinetry if you can. Looks like it could tip if it was free standing and the child leans forward too far. The only thing I was not crazy about was the minimal diagrams. Having built many things similar, I was able to understand the 3 or 4 diagrams given indicating screw size and location to use. Took about 15-20 minutes to get everything together mainly because I built it without help. Having someone help hold pieces would have been easier. I would highly recommend this product! Pros: Good price, sturdy, looks great, perfect height Cons: Building -- minimal diagrams

    from Massachusetts – Verified Buyer

    This sturdy step up stool was purchased for my granddaughter, for use in the bathroom when she brushes her teeth . It is very well made and assembly was very easy. All the parts were in the box and all the fastening hardware was complete- no missing parts! The pre-drilled holes aligned perfectly between the pieces being bolted together. This.stool is sturdy and It is heavy enough to stay put for safety- while being light enough to lift and move as needed. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

    High Rise Step Stool! Love it!

    from Lafayette, LA – Verified Buyer

    I purchased the high rise step stool for my two year old about a month ago and we absolutely love it! She is able to use it very easily and she loves the fact that she can reach like a big girl! Not only is it tall enough for her to reach to wash her hands and brush her teeth, but I feel much more safe with the tall sides and handles for her to easily climb up. I would recommend it to other moms with toddlers!

    Early Childhood Educator

    from Hamilton, ON – Verified Buyer

    We love our steps, they help the children to wash hands before and after eating, after toiletting and to help wash items they wish to clean. The steps are helpful for the educators too as we don't have to stoop down, even the diapers can be changed standing up whilst the children wash hands at the sink. Safety is the biggest benefit as the educator can stand behind a toddler to keep them at the sink whilst preschoolers can stand safely on their own.

    Great Product

    from Livonia, NY – Verified Buyer

    I bought this for my 1.5 year old grandson. From a safety point of view, I think the sides provide boundaries for the little ones, and the grab handles make it easier to balance. I feel more comfortable with him helping me in the kitchen using this step stool instead of a chair. I definitely recommend this product.

    Great for Kitchen!

    from United States – Verified Buyer

    I am giving this product 5 stars because of price, easy to assemble, very sturdy (but light enough to move around), and the look. We started using this for a very young child (17 months) and it is growing with her. She loves to stand and sit on it. Now she can see exactly what mommy is doing on the counter and loves to cook with her own mixing bowls. I like that I can turn the steps around to face the wall when not in use, and she cannot accidently climb on the steps without supervision. Word of caution (which is just common sense), you need to watch your child while they are on the step!!!!!! So far no accidents, but we had to teach her not to try to climb on the very top of the step near the handles. I has made meal prep. so much easier on me now that she can see what I am doing.

    Perfect for my little guy!!!

    from Stirling, NJ – Verified Buyer

    My little one is not quite 2 and even with a typical step couldn't reach the sink to wash his hands. This stair-step is very solid and easy to put together. The side rails make it easy for him to get up and down the stairs safely. It's the perfect tool to get him into the habit of washing his hands with out me breaking my back holding him up to the sink.

    Nearly perfect step stool

    from Greater Boston Area, MA – Verified Buyer

    Excellent step stool for the price. Only real gripe is the treads which is like very rough sandpaper. Can ruin clothes of the little ones who use it, and worse if they sit on the step bare bottom. Non-slip bottom would help for greater stability, but this can be added yourself.
