An Overview of Piccalio's Learning Towers

We offer two types of learning towers, the Foldable Helper Tower and the Convertible Helper Tower. Both toddler towers provide a safe standing platform, giving your little one the boost they need to help out in the kitchen.

The Foldable Tower folds up for easy storage. After folding, you can slip the tower into your pantry. The Convertible Tower becomes a child-sized table and bench perfect for meals or arts-and-crafts.

Why Choose Piccalio Kitchen Helper Towers?

Our kitchen helper towers are unique for several important reasons. Here's what you can expect from our helper towers:

1. Non-toxic and Sustainable

We want what's best for you, the planet, and the generations to come. That's why we prioritize sustainability and source our materials ethically. We make our helper towers with FSC® birch plywood and New Zealand pine wood.

Additionally, we use water-based finishes that are lead and phthalate safe. Because we use safe, non-toxic materials, our toddler towers are Greenguard Gold Certified. This means our towers don't emit toxic volatile organic compounds (VOC) into your home.

Finally, we produce ethically. We produce small batches to meet demand to avoid wasting resources. Plus, our packaging uses FSC-certified cardboard materials.

2. Montessori-Inspired and Educational

The Montessori method encourages caregivers to help children achieve independence. Our helper towers give young children a boost so they can reach kitchen counters. However, you can also use the towers in the bathroom and other hard-to-reach locations.

Helper towers promote independence, allowing young children to prepare meals and snacks "all by myself!" You also create opportunities for learning and connection when cooking and baking with your children. Another benefit is that children become responsible by helping with family chores such as cooking. By participating in family life, children can build their confidence and self-esteem.

3. Multi-purpose Designs

Each of our helper towers serves multiple purposes, meaning you get more! The Foldable Tower can slip away into a closet or behind a shelf. Ideal for small kitchens, you can also pick up the tower and take it with you to the bathroom. Adults can also use the Foldable Tower as a step stool for high cupboards and hard-to-reach places.

The Convertible Tower is also useful in multiple ways. Use it as a tower or turn it into a table and bench for sitting, eating, or coloring.

Additionally, our helper towers grow with your child. The Foldable Tower offers various platform heights. The Convertible offers different step heights that also adjust the height of the bench.

4. 5-Star Reviews

Customers love our helper towers. Here's a small taste of what they have to say:

"I bought this as a birthday present for my 1 year old. It has been so much fun having her nearby while I’m working at the counter and she loves eating meals at her own little table. This product is well made and easy to clean. I think we’ll get many years of use out of it!" - Sara E.

"The tower is exactly what I hoped it would be! So sturdy and convenient. I love that I can fold it up and tuck it away when not in use. And my son loves standing at the counter with me!" Katie V.

5. Looks Beautiful in Your Home

Our helper towers feature classic, attractive designs that fit in with your home's decor. Choose from four colors including natural wood, white, black, and sage. No matter which color you choose, it will look gorgeous in your kitchen.

Using Your Helper Tower

No matter which helper tower you choose, you can enjoy a wonderful time with your toddler in the kitchen. Teach your child to cut soft foods like bananas, cucumbers, cheese, and more. Using a safe wooden knife, your child can build their fine motor and concentration skills.

Toddlers and young children can also participate in activities at the kitchen sink such as experiments or playing with water. Discover some fun kitchen sink activities here.

Most importantly, your toddler can also help cook meals. Simple meals like sandwiches and fruit salad are excellent options for toddlers to make. Here are some kid-friendly recipes you can try.
