Why I bought my… Learning Tower
By CBB Reviewer Stephanie
My son has always been a curious fellow. When I’m cutting food at the kitchen counter, he wants to help. When I’m washing my hands at the sink, he wants to know what’s going on. Like most kids, he likes to be kept informed of his mama’s latest activities.
But that isn’t always easy when you’re about three feet tall. Which is why we’re constantly thankful for our Learning Tower. It has been a faithful companion in our kitchen for almost two years and I really don’t know how I would survive without it.

With an adjustable-height platform suitable for children from the ageof 18 months and up, the Learning Tower is well worth the investment.Children finally have a safe way to get in on the action because itbrings them up to the height of whatever mom and dad are doing, whileproviding a sturdy, stable place to perch. The Learning Tower isdesigned so that it won’t tip when children climb in and stand inside.It also prevents them from falling off because they are surrounded onall sides by the wood “walls.” That’s a lot more than can be said fora dining room chair!
Instead of trying to keep their balance and worrying about fallingoff, kids can devote their energy to the tasks at hand. Because, ifyou think about it, nothing is more important than kneading bread anddecorating cupcakes! And the Learning Tower is finished with alead-free varnish, so it’s easy to wipe off the bread dough and icingafterwards.
I have to share an added bonus, too … my Learning Tower has paid foritself — with the sheer number of timesthat my son has stood at our kitchen sink and been perfectly content toentertain himself with a few cups, toys and, of course, a sink full ofbubbles. I know every mama of a toddler knows the value of making afew uninterrupted phone calls!
I haven’t got one yet, but there’s also an add-on Playhouse Kitavailable. It comes with four signs (including one to convert theLearning Tower into a lemonade stand), a roof, and a set of curtainsfor an instant puppet theater. As if the Learning Tower isn’t usefulenough already!
If there’s a downside, it’s that The Learning Tower is big …particularly in our not-so-big kitchen. But I feel like the space ittakes up has nothing on the amount of comfort I get from knowing thatmy son is safe when he’s “helping” me.
The Learning Tower is available at a number of online retailers, check out their site for more info.
