Little Partners Learning Tower: Raise those tots up right!


I have some great sponsors and amazing co-hosts and promoters helping me bring these giveaways to a larger audience, in hopes to bring you bigger and better giveaways!

I'm so excited to finally be bringing you the Oh My! It's Twins! Giveaway Event. Since my twins arrived so early, I had to place this event on hold for a bit of time. However, the twins are now home and I'm back to posting and publishing again! I've got about 20 giveaways coming up for you all, and I'm too excited to get this started!


If you have kids, you're almost guaranteed to have had your child attempt to scale the kitchen cabinets at one point or another... There are more times than I can count, in that Nugget was being extremely quiet, not bothersome, and I wasn't quite sure what she was getting into... Quiet toddlers? Something is up mamas... I can't count the number of times that I have walked in on my daughter being completely quiet for way too long and I knew she had to be up to something. Nugget likes to use her bathroom stool, a not so sturdy box, a little table and chair from her kitchen dining set, one or two of the chairs from the dining room, empty plastic storage tubs or 1 million other things that are used as step stools, in which she has designed some type of tower to be able to climb up and onto the counters in the kitchen or bathroom.

I love having Nugget help in the kitchen, but there are few options that are safe for her to participate in any work at the counter height. I don't like letting her stand at the counter on a dining chair, they're slippery and ours are padded- NO SHOES ALLOWED! And, while we're at it, let's just call a spade a spade- she's short like me. And in my opinion, kitchen stools and ladders do not get made with children's safety in mind. Kids lose their balance so easily, some kids are afraid of heights and that makes them more unsteady, and sometimes kids laugh so hard they fall backwards. 


You know that your toddlers, preschoolers and kids are going to do things that you may not want them doing or if you are wanting them to do it you shouldn't want them to be safe while they are. After all, see how Nugget put her chair ON her little table to be able to reach the top of that bookcase... This really happened y'all... She may have done something like this in the bathroom to get to the top shelf above the commode... Talk about a heart attack... 

One of my absolute favorite products for children is the Learning Tower by Little Partners. I came across this when I was on my internships while in graduate school. Yeah, I've loved it THAT long.  The Learning Tower by Little  Partners is the best option to ensure your child's safety so they can help and learn how to cook safely at the counters, trying to climb in the kitchen, and helps them use just a little bit of imagination.



Let me tell you a little about Little Partners and where the idea came from:
The idea for Little Partners was born in a suburban kitchen. That’s where Carol Gamble, founder and president, noticed that her 2-year old daughter Hanna desperately wanted a bigger role in the family. Carol was trained as an infant/toddler specialist by the Center for Montessori Teachers Education in New York and her passion for helping young children discover and explore the world around them was eclipsed only by her passion for being a mom. Carol understood that while all human beings are inherently inquisitive, children are especially so, and she recognized this indomitable sense of curiosity in her own child. It was a deep desire to be involved with daily household activities, to help and to learn.

That’s when Carol got an idea. What if there was a safe way to involve toddlers and young children in the daily tasks parents perform around the house? The right tool would create a space for young children to explore and discover the world around them in an environment specific to the phase of their development. It would help develop motor and organizational skills, build confidence, and strengthen the bonds of love and trust between parent and child.

She immediately set out to create a safe step stool to open up that magical world above the counter tops, and include her daughter in daily activities like preparing meals, doing dishes, making cookies, crafts, or other projects. The Learning Tower was born.
Today, it is helping children explore and discover the world on a scale Carol could scarcely have imagined two decades ago.


Little Partners Learning Tower is the number one kitchen step stool for toddlers. There's tons of imitations, but NONE are like the original. It's an adjustable height step stool w/Safety Rail,. It is made from solid birch and poplar wood. It is solid, sturdy and heavy, so there's NO particle board on this thing.

•  TOP RATED KITCHEN HELPER STEP STOOL - Parents, caregivers, teachers and chefs agree this is the BEST kids step stool for learning and safe nurturing of your child's curiosity and thirst for knowledge.

• EXCELLENT GIFT IDEA - Perfect for the curious little learner in your family. No more peaking over the edge of the counter. The Learning Tower sits flush with the edge of most counters and kitchen islands.

• BOND WITH YOUR CHILD - Teach them how to cook. Have some fun rolling pizza dough together or using the cookie cutter for holiday cookies.

• TEACH RESPONSIBILITY - The learning tower is also a great tool to teach your kids how to clean up and wash dishes.

• HIGH QUALITY - Solid wood construction. Made from layered Birch with a non-toxic, lead-free finish that cleans easily.

• MADE FOR FUN - The learning tower can also be configured to hold an easel or chalkboard, or even be dressed up as a puppet stage.

Nugget absolutely loves the freedom her tower gives her in the kitchen. She can grab her own yogurt from the refrigerator, she gets to help cook and mix food, and she even uses her tower to play pretend. Yesterday, it was a castle and we draped gauzy fabric across so she could pretend she was a princess. Another time? She was pretending she was a bear in hibernation. We have even used our tower for obstacle courses to practice learning over, under, around and through.

As a pediatric Occupational Therapist, it's always amazing for me to see how such a simple piece of furniture can facilitate the most adorable milestone in toddler/preschool age children- IMAGINATIVE PLAY. Not only does it facilitate imaginative play, it helps with gross motor coordination and planning as a child learns how to climb into and out of the tower. Increases their strength as they push/pull it across the kitchen. The learning tower even helps with sensory processing, especially for those kiddos with gravitational insecurity and are afraid to have their feet off the ground. This raises them, but allows them to still feel in control, confined safely with the rails.



Push it up against the kitchen counter and introduce it to your little one. 
As you cook and prepare food, play a few games, you'll also notice how happy joining in the fun makes your toddler- and YOU. 
No more toddlers around your feet while cooking dinner, they can be right where they belong- next to you and helping.
