When it comes time to give a gift or to get something for your own child, a purchase that has longevity and a purpose will also become something very special. Anything personalized fits this category perfectly. Children love to see their name on clothing, blankets, blackboards, stools and most anything else you can think of.
A personalized step stool for kids is a very functional piece of furniture that provides a tool for a child that helps with a very important part of growing up, his or her independence.
For the first year or so of a child’s life they are mostly dependent on mom or dad or a care giver for all of their needs. When they start to walk and talk, that is when they start to gain their independence.
One of the first things a child will start to do which requires a step stool is to wash their hands. They will need to have help at first to turn the water on and off, but when they can do it by themselves, it will be very exciting for them! Dentists recommend that a child brush his teeth as early as possible. Every child loves to watch themselves in the mirror as they brush away. Good habits when started early will be a great benefit throughout a lifetime.
We cannot forget about potty training. If you are like me, a potty chair was not an option. I just could not see having to clean up something extra if I did not have to. A step stool will serve the purpose of getting up on the toilet just fine.
As they get older they will be able to use the step stool by themselves, because in the beginning they will need supervision as they gain their independence.
So as you can see there are many purposes a step stool will provide. A well made sturdy one, preferably made of quality wood, will last for many years to come.
Another type of step stool that is very practical is called a flip stool. This is not only a step stool but a chair. The back of the chair flips down to become a stool. This two for one item is great for every child to have. The next time you are trying to think of a gift that will keep giving, you know exactly what to get.
