We just started using this for our grandson to stand at the counter with us to do activities. First off the platform they stand on, if not screwed into the side ,slips and slides and could cause serious injury if not attached. We screwed it in to stabilize it. Two the openings are way too big! This item should come with something to hold child in. Our grandson turned around and was holding onto the bar yesterday and slipped and fell through the large hole and seriously scraped his whole back and spine on the Sharp wood edge. IT is going to the dump!!!
