When it comes to getting toddlers involved in kitchen tasks, there’s nothing like a kitchen helper stool (also known as a Montessori tower or a kids step stool). These units are essentially steps with four high sides, usaully an enclosed top platform, and railing that allow children to safely stand at counter or higher surface level with you while you prepare food, clean the kitchen, or other household chores under your close supervision.
These kid-safe kids stools also encourage independence and freedom of movement, which is why they are often popular with Montessori families. They’re great for boosting kids up to counter-height and for helping them reach other hard-to-reach areas in the kitchen, laundry room, or bathroom.
Bottom line: This adjustable-height kids stool is super durable and folds flat for easy storage. It’s perfect for small spaces and older kids who need a little height boost, and it wipes down easily, too. Buy here.
This kid-safe kitchen helper is designed and built specifically for children to cook, bake, climb or simply sit next to the family table eating and playing. It’s a great way to teach responsibility, independence and cooperation with parents while having fun and learning.
