Most childrens step stools range from 13cm to 17cm high. The Up Step is 21 cm high. As children are potty training later, they are able to step on to higher step stools. Higher step stools make it easier for the child to get onto the toilet or reach sink or counter and recent research shows that it easier for a child to pee or poo on the toilet when their feet are supported. The Up Step offers that support. Also, the Up Step is sturdy, stable and strong, supporting the weight of an adult weighing up to 80Kg. It incorporates a non-slip top and base for safety. The Up Step completes the Pourty Toilet Training Product Range and co-ordinates with the Flexi-fit Toilet Trainer and the Pourty Easy to Pour potties in blue and white.
