'learning towers' are basically step stools with safety rails meant for children. they are typically used in homes where there is a montessori approach to learning. it's a safe way for children to be able to observe, help, experience and play from a higher level like that of an adult's.
there are several makers of 'learning towers'... but they're quite expensive... so i checked around for a diy version and we totally copied this one... i was going to buy the step stool from ikea... but lucky me, i picked it up from the side of the road instead (!)... it was covered in marker, but that was fine since i wanted to paint it anyway. a little bit of sanding, building, painting and voila... lucy has her own learning tower. she uses it daily from the moment we step in the kitchen to get breakfast ready. she likes washing dishes, getting a drink, getting onni a drink, preparing food (well, playing with it and taking bites out of it...), watching us cook and just hanging out at the same level as us (and for some reason she likes climbing up there to watch squirrels). this particular version is perfect for lucy since she is able to climb up and down on her own, but since the height is not adjustable on this one, we may copy this 'little helper tower' diy version later when she is taller.
