Safety Guidelines

We have built our Tower with your Little Helpers safety in mind, however we can't guarantee the safety of your child if the Tower is used improperly. Please read below for our safety guidelines.

 

  • Recommended for children 14+ months who are competently standing, unaided. Child must be supervised AT ALL TIMES.
  • Our tower is designed to be used up against a flat surface e.g. against a closed in bench or up against cupboards. It is designed for 1 child at a time and is NOT A TOY, so do not allow children to swing or hang off the side.
  • We recommend a bit of extra guidance as your child learns to climb up and down the tower. Don’t worry, it won’t take long for them to get the hang of it!
  • Note that the highest platform is generally used for smaller children, therefore the ability to climb up independently is more of a challenge and children should be assisted in and out of the tower, as needed.
  • To ensure the security of the Little Helper Tower, we recommend using the tower until the toddler can project laterally from the tower. This usually happens when their hips, standing on the main step, pass the highest edge of the tower. If the limit point is reached, we recommend lowering the main step down a notch.
  • Although there are no specific standards for children's stools in NZ, we have home tested and built our tower to comply with the following AS/NZS ISO 8124.1:2019 Safety Standards: Stability Test 5.12.6, Overload Test 5.12.5, Projection Test 4.8, Tip Over Test 5.24.3, Edges 4.6.5, Material Quality Test 4.3.1, and the Wooden Toys Test 4.7.
  • Tower is to be assembled by an adult. Until the tower is fully assembled, the bolts are considered small parts and could pose a choking hazard, therefore should be kept out of reach of children under the age of 3.
  • Always read and follow safety and assembly instructions.
