Ikea Forsiktig Children's Stool
Advantages: Versatile and easy to clean
Disadvantages: Noe really
I bought the Ikea FÖRSIKTIG stool for my son recently for £2.50, as we are thinking about potty training and he also is too small to reach the sink to wash his hands properly. The stool is white polypropylene plastic with blue synthetic rubber bobbles on the top and anti-slip protectors on the underside of the stool. As it is plastic is it easy to clean with either water and a cloth or with some spray detergent. The height of the stool is 13cm, it is 37cm wide and 24 cm in depth. My son finds it easy to climb onto and also it is not too high for him when he steps down that he falls off.
The depth of the stool is plenty big enough for small feet to get a good balance and also for larger adult feet to stand on. It does not specify a weight limit but we have had no problems with average sized adults using it to stand on for short time periods. It does not slip, we have a tiled bathroom floor and we have had no slippage issues, so it would say that is overall pretty safe and easy to use. The stool is light weight and easy to carry around the house.
I use the stool in my bathroom and I find that it is just the right height to allow my son to stand up to the sink to wash his hands and also to use when as step up to use the toilet. It also comes in handy if I need to reach things on a high shelf in the kitchen and has also been used when decorating, so that I can reach the ceiling.
Overall I would recommend this stool to others as it is well priced, easy to clean and will probably last a long time.
Summary: Great light weight stool
