Bumbo Step Stool {Review}

By Kate |

bumbo step stool whiteCan you think of a product designed for children that you never imagined you would need? I mean, really need? For my family, it’s definitely a good step stool. And, when you think about it, it makes total sense that this is a necessity: all the fixtures, sinks, toilets and so on and so on are designed for adult-sized people. Day after day, our little one’s height doesn’t quite measure up to their independence and they need a little boost to get things done.

The good news is you can get an awesome Step Stool at a totally affordable price. At only $15, the Bumbo Step Stool is ready to give your family a lift.

The Step Stool has a simple, totally functional design. The top is covered in a textured, slip resistant material. The bottom bumps out to help provide stability and is also slip resistant. And it really sticks to the floor – I’ve tried to slide it across the floor with my foot to move it and it doesn’t budge.

It’s super lightweight and portable to move around from room to room. Ours makes the rounds on our first floor between the bathroom and the kitchen. The Step Stool is tested to 110 pounds, but on more than one occasion I’ve loved having the Stool in the kitchen so I can step on it to reach the top shelf. (And, I obviously weigh more than 110 pounds.)

    Haha you’re right!! It looks pretty cool, I’d like it in one of the colors I think…I actually think this one would be tall enough too..A lot of the ones I have seen are too short!

    This is perfect. We have a cheap step stool but it doesn’t look near as sturdy as this one.

    What? You weigh more than 110 pounds?

    I like the price point and I totally agree that it looks like an elephant foot!
