The Learning Tower: Review Part I
As part of our parenting philosophy, B and I make it a point to create a home that is inclusive of all it’s members. One way we do this is by appropriately modifying the environment to meet our son’s current developmental needs. Sometimes modifying our environment is as simple as gathering some items we already have or moving a few pieces of furniture around. Other times, it helps to have a product specifically designed to help us meet our goals.
We spend a lot of time in the kitchen. That time is much more happily spent if we are all interacting and doing together. The Little Partners Learning Tower is designed to provide a safe way for smaller members of the family to experience the world at an adult level. Giving children the opportunity to view the world from an adult perspective allows them to more effectively learn about and interact with their environment.
Our first impressions of The Learning Tower?
Well, to say this product has changed our lives would not be an understatement! We all love it! O is nearly two(!) now and imitating everything we do, especially our day-to-day household activities. Including him in our daily activities is not only an enjoyable way to get things accomplished, but also a great learning opportunity for everyone involved as well as a wonderful way to boost our son’s self-esteem.
The construction of The Learning Tower is absolutely sturdy and very intuitively designed. Assembly is quite simple and takes just a few minutes. B and I have found the floor of the tower to quickly and easily adjust to accommodate O’s height with plenty of room to grow. The shape of the tower is aesthetically pleasing as well. Our tower is the “natural” wood and it is honestly quite lovely to behold.
O has easily been able to independently climb in and out of The Learning Tower from day one. Imagine his delight!
Some of our favorite ways to use The Learning Tower:
- washing hands
- helping mama do the laundry
- climbing up and down, just for fun
- playing in the sink (aka “washing dishes”)
- use as an open-ended play thing (play stand)
- getting a better view out of the window to watch the bird feeder
- mama sometimes uses the tower “floor” for a photo background
- cooking and baking in the kitchen
O helps prepare nearly all of our meals in his tower. He has a standing date with his papa every morning for breakfast, every Friday for pizza, and every Saturday for granola bars!
I’m thrilled to be able to bring you this Review & Give-Away series. I hope you’ll join us next week for the second part of our review.
See you then!
