Little Partners Review

Now that Scarlett is older, she's at that age where she's into everything.  She wants to explore and go through every cabinet and drawer in my house.  Lately, she's very into helping me which I really enjoy.  She will watch me fold the laundry or empty the dishwasher and try to help.  It's pretty cute.  I figure she won't want to help me as much in a few years, so why not encourage it now?

Little Partners offers hand-crafted products that nurture a child's blossoming independence, while providing a secure environment to create, learn and play.  The brand's products make wonderful gifts for practically any occasion.  Any child would be absolutely delighted to have a learning tower, step stool, or even an easel for the budding artist.  You can't forget about playhouse kits featuring a lemonade or ice cream stand either.  Those will surely bring hours of fun.  Little Partner's products are built to last and will grow with your child for years to come.  Please keep Little Partners in mind for all of your future gift giving needs.

Scarlett loves to be with me in the kitchen when I make dinner.  If I'm cooking, I'll put her in highchair in the kitchen so she can watch me.  She enjoys banging a spoon or some measuring cups while I prepare meals.  When I discovered Little Partners Learning Tower, I knew it would be absolutely perfect for her.  She could be right next to me in the kitchen to "help" while I prep dinner.   

The learning tower was shipped to me extremely fast.  Be aware that the box is very heavy though! I chose white, but it's available in many different colors including espresso, dark wood, white, red, natural wood and more.  My kitchen is white so I was happy to have the tower match perfectly. This is certainly a unit that is constructed well.  It's sturdy and built to last and very secure.  

All children love to be like mom and dad, and the learning tower gives them that opportunity.  It's the only step-stool on the market carefully designed to meet the needs of toddlers ages 18 months and up.  The unit grows with your child from toddler all the way up to 6 years old.  Rest assured, the four-sided railings provide support while your child climbs in and out and prevents falling when inside.  It's been tested to hold up to 500 lbs and fits flush against counters for safe access.

The unit comes in pieces and an instruction booklet.  My husband isn't the handiest, so it took him about an hour and a half to put together.  It might take you less time if you are better at assembling.  Scarlett was very excited when it was finished and she couldn't wait to stand in it and help her mom.

We used the learning tower for the first time this morning when I was making breakfast.  If you don't have an open and wide kitchen, the unit will take up space.  I have a galley kitchen and it's a tight fit in there.  I do wish the learning tower was slightly more compact.  The tower pushes right up against my cabinets for a secure fit.  Scarlett enjoyed standing inside and seeing life from a whole different perspective.  I made pancakes and made sure she was included by giving her some kitchen utensils to play with.

The only thing I would change about the learning tower would be to include a safety belt. This would allow the children to be strapped in while ensuring they don't try to escape. You'll be right next to your child the whole time and will have all eyes on them though in case of anything.  All in all, we both really enjoyed the unit and look forward to using it for years to come.
