I was over at a friend’s house last week getting a carton of farm fresh eggs from her cute and friendly chickens when I noticed this nifty looking step stool at the end of her kitchen counter. Turns out she and her husband make these cool step stools and have decided to go into business for themselves. Love that entrepreneurial spirit! Anyway, she told me about the stools and turns out these are not only cool, but a great way for kids to show some independence while safely standing at the counter with mom or dad.
Does your little one like to watch while you cook, or maybe help stir while you bake? I know when mine were little I was always worried about them climbing and then falling off of those little kitchen step ladders or stools. I wish I’d had one of these “Step On Up Stepstools” when mine were little! I still have a little while before it’s grandma time for me, but when that time comes I know what I’ll have at my kitchen counter!
These aren’t just great in the kitchen either. This is a nifty helping hand in the bathroom too for washing little hands and brushing baby teeth. This is even ideal for young toddlers. Because the sides of this stool surrounds them on all sides, there’s no worry of them falling off backwards!
I was definitely impressed with the quality of workmanship that Claudia and her husband put into these items. Their enthusiasm shines through and they use these regularly in their own home with their grandchildren. Don’t take my word for it though, have a look at some of the testimonials on their website, Wheatland Woodcraft. They also offer other items in their shop, so be sure to take a look around while you are there.
Do you have a friend who’s product really impressed you? Send it my way!
