Dunelm Foldable Step
Advantages: A few more inches to your height (!)
Disadvantages: Little fingers could get trapped if not careful
This is a review of the Simply Foldable Step Stool from Dunelm which we recently purchased - three times over! Having achieved some success potty training our daughter we were ready to move on to the toilet seat insert and she needed a small step to help her climb up to the loo and also to the sink to wash her hands.
Purchase x 3
I happened upon a big display of these stools to the rear of our local Dunelm store and immediately thought that was what we were looking for so purchased one. On the way home we stopped at Nan's house and she said she could use one at her house (for various tasks as well as helping with the toilet training). So I left it with her and bought myself two more, one for upstairs and one for downstairs toilets as when the urge takes a toddler, there is no time to waste!
Available in seven colour options, the stool is fully foldable and can be stored flat when not in use. When constructed (which takes about two seconds) it is 22cm high and has a surface area of 29 x 22cm. The flat pack is really clever and the stool discretely hinged with a 150kg maximum weight as a bearable load. Made of plastic, the stool is wipe clean and all the colour come in a spotty pattern on the top.
We store our stool (s) flat and put them in front of the toilet or sink when our daughter needs to use them. They are solid and sturdy and will not collapse on you when folded out. There is a handle on the top which forms part of the seat of the stool. Ours gets used several times a day for this purpose but I would also use it for cleaning and reaching and it's far easier to store than a set of ladders (and less far to fall off!).
These are so cleverly made, there is a small finger trapping risk which makes it a little awkward as my daughter is always trying to 'help' and she goes straight for the stool to open it up and I cringe every time saying FINGERS!! To her so she is careful but a little young at nearly two to fully understand what the consequences are if she traps them. I liked the first step we bought so much that I went back and bought two more so have been pleased with them so far.
The step is very reasonable at £4.99.
I think this is something that most people would find handy in the home. I like all the cheerful colours available although you can also go with the more neutral white if you prefer! We have found ours so useful since buying I imagine they will stay with us for years. A great find and was definitely a repurchase for us!
Summary: A great find and was definitely a repurchase for us!
