Having six kids under my feet while I am trying to cook dinner isn't the best part of being a parent. At least one of my preschoolers is very interested in cooking while the rest of the younger crew just want to hang out with mom while I'm in the kitchen. Being shorter than standard counter top height makes it hard to see exactly what's going on up there.
I bought the Learning Tower so my kids would have something safe to stand on instead of pulling up a chair. I can now have them in the kitchen with me and not constantly worry about someone falling. I like that even my youngest child (16 months) can independently climb into the tower to watch me do the dishes. There's no danger of this thing tipping over even with older children in it. While it is heavy, my preschoolers have no trouble scooting it across the kitchen floor to where they need it.
The construction of the piece is solid, easy to put together, and even easier to adjust the height. I was able to put it together by myself in less than 30 minutes. We ordered our tower in bright red. I am impressed with the vibrant color it turned out to have.
I love that I can safely have the kids in the kitchen with me now. I wish I had bought one years ago.
