Used it from when DD was about 18 months to help make bread until Christmas when she was 4. Much safer than standing on a chair, we paint, cook and mess about a lot at table/worktop level and it has an adjustable step inside, as child grows up you can lower the step, so they can always reach table, worktop whatever and still be safe.
Mine still looks brand new even though it was used evey day. Sells brand new for €150 or you can buy them from english websites for stg£110.00 plus postage and packaging which is costly because its quite heavy.
Will sell for €75.00.
