Mini Chef Foldable Helper Tower
The Mini Chef Foldable Helper Tower offers your toddler a little boost, so they can safely chef it up. Teach them how to chop, stir, pour, and hopefully wash some dishes ;). All done? Just fold it up and tuck it away — until the next meal. It also offers friendly access to the bathroom sink and any other hard-to-reach places.

In your home
Can furniture teach kids stuff? Yup.
Toddlers learn best when they touch things, smell things, taste things, and see things. Look for ways to provide hands-on, firsthand experiences to encourage independence and self-directed learning.
Open-ended living for independent learning.
Stirring, mixing, kneading dough, cutting, slicing, pouring, spooning, brushing teeth and washing dishes are all great activities your little one can enjoy with the help of a toddler tower.
Real wood. Made to last (and last).
We only use real wood, carefully and sustainably sourced (FSC®). Our products are treated with innovative, non-toxic coating that’s safe for you, and the planet. Plus, it's easy to clean - because duh!
Use a damp, clean cloth to wipe the surfaces. Slight maintenance may be required over time.
Don’t leave or store your Piccalio products outside. They are protected by a lacquer coating but are made of wood and are therefore susceptible to damage caused by exposure to rain and wet conditions.
We recommend keeping our wood products in dry, non-humid environments, and kept away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances that produce heat.
While both are equally sturdy and safe, there are some differences between these two towers. The Convertible Helper Tower has the option to convert into a table and chair, while the Foldable Helper Tower does not have this feature. The Foldable Helper Tower can fold for easy storage. Another feature of the Foldable Helper Tower is an adjustable standing platform (3 height options) adjusting as your child grows, while the Convertible Helper Tower only has an adjustable step (3 height options) which is used as a seat when the tower converts into a table.
The Safety Net is a Helper Tower accessory for the first months of use. It can create a protective barrier while your little one is getting familiar with the Helper Tower and gaining confidence.
Please note, if your child is not firmly stable yet, or cannot stand unaided we suggest not using the Helper Tower until the child is fully stable and can stand unsupported.
The Helper Tower is made from FSC Certified (sustainably harvested) Birch plywood and solid Pine. We use a 0-VOC water-based finish that is formaldehyde and lead free.

My son loves using this to help cook!
I love that it is well made, has the safety bar in case he wobbles, and has the adjustable step so he can still use it as he gets taller. And, even with the adjustable step it wasn’t too hard to put together!
