Learning Tower IKEA
What is a learning tower for children?
A learning tower for children is a type of tower highchair on which your children can stand at the height of the kitchen worktop to watch and help you. The learning tower is secured on all four sides so that the little ones cannot fall out.

Learning tower yes or no?
Opinions differ on this question. Many parents find the learning tower super practical. Others, however, are rather sceptical about the self-made piece of furniture. On the one hand, the learning tower gives our little ones the opportunity to join the grown-ups in the bathroom and kitchen on their own. On the other hand, the question arises as to whether we should bring children up to a height that they can't actually reach yet. Moreover, the learning tower is a self-made piece of furniture - is it really safe to tip over? So the question of the learning tower has advantages and disadvantages as well as dangers.

If you decide to builda learning tower from the IKEA BEKVÄM Trittocker * and the IKEAODDVAR stool *, you should be aware that the self-built learning tower can quickly tip over. There are many online retailers who offer an anti-tipper suitable for the DIY IKEA Learning Tower. This can reduce the risk of tipping over. Nevertheless, your child should never be left unattended in the learning tower.

The best learning tower alternatives
Chopping at children's height
We are absolutely thrilled with this IKEA hack! When her daughter outgrew the children's kitchen age, @lilien_zauber simply converted the kitchen into a work surface for little people. To do this, she removed the sink and the tap from the base. And then simply attached a sturdy wooden board from the DIY store as a worktop to the play kitchen. And that's it!
