It’s great but missing a safety feature
Reviewed in the United States on May 10, 2020
I love it, my 13 month old loves it, but it has a bit safety problem: it’s so easy for her to fall backwards when she bends down!! She actually fell the second time we used in it!!!
She dropped some snacks and bent to pick them up, and fell on hardwood floors, hitting her back and head. We added the fabric from a ribbon and raise it/lower it when she enters and stands in the stool.
I can’t believe this type of feature (closing that gap) doesn’t come by default.
We feel we mitigated this issue and otherwise, we are happy with the stool. My toddler is so excited to use it! It’s perfect when “helping” with door prepping and watch us in the kitchen!
I would say it is pretty sturdy, although I wonder if the “cage” is tall enough. My 100 percentile for height at 13 months old baby seems to fit just right. I don’t know whT will happen in 6m or 1y... in our case, one of the stools’ legs is a tiny bit shorter than the other, so it is not 100% balanced, but my kid doesn’t seem to try to exploit that and wiggle left and right, so I’ll let it be for now.
Edit (5 months later). I’m increasing the rating from 3 to 4 stars, as the chair has proven itself useful and reliable. It still bothers me it’s not completely level... We recently removed the extra ribbon we added to allow for easier access in and out - kiddo is big enough and much more careful about what she does when she’s up in the chair.
