Ikea Forsiktig Children's Stool
Advantages: Lightweight, strong plastic and cheap.
I have lots of grandchildren and when they want to use the toilet when they come to either visit my home or stay over night a stool comes in handy for them to reach the toilet.
I have had this stool for a very long time, maybe 3 or 4 years and it is still good as new. It is a white plastic stool which has raised circular kind of holes on the top of the stool which help the child remain on the stool without slipping from it. It has 2 holes at each side of the stool to carry it around the home if you want to use it in a different room to the toilet. It is a stool which is good to use to reach anything on top of a cupboard if you just cannot reach it comfortably.
The plastic is extremely sturdy and strong, it sits well on the floor without slipping around. Is very light to transport from room to room too and very lightweight. A child could easily carry it, it is that light.
My little grandchildren who cannot just reach the toilet or the sink to wash their hands use this stool. I leave it in my toilet and it is there ready for when they need to use it. They can reach the toilet at the right height to aim well into the loo.
It can easily be wiped clean using a spray cleaner and or even a cream cleaner if it get really dirty. It cleans well and the plastic is touch enough to clean using a cream cleaner and it doesn't ruin the plastic.
What I love about this stool is the uses it can give for using around the home, I loved it that much when I bought my first one, I bought 2 more to use around my home, I have one permanently in my kitchen for my wife to reach into the kitchen cupboards because she is petite and I just pop it inside a large cupboard and it fits inside it nicely and ready to use.
We have one in our lounge for our younger grandchildren to stand on so that they can see one of us coming home if they have arrived and one of us is out for the day. They like to look out of the window and wave to us or to wave goodbye to their parents when they have dropped them off to stay for the weekend or overnight. We do make sure they are stood onto the stool safely and we don't leave them unattended so they are nice and safe.
I think this is a brilliant stool and it only costs me a couple of pounds to buy at the time and I think it isn't much more than that at the moment and it can easily last a lifetime. A good quality plastic at a good value price.
I highly do recommend it to anyone looking for a very cheap stool for the children to use or for an adult to reach into cupboards etc.
I rate it 5 stars.
