I would really like to purchase a learning tower, but there is only room in our kitchen for one. Do any of you use one with your mutliples? Do they fit on there OK without causing each other too much hassle ? :

If anyone does use one, do you know where I can go for the best price?

Thanks!

We do, we do! We just got one a couple of weeks ago, and Luke and Jasper LOVE it! They definitely fit in there together; there is plenty of room. It has seriously changed my life. Luke and Jaz used to spend our kitchen time whining/pulling at my legs. I could momentarily distract them with pots/pans/tupperware etc., but it never lasted long enough to really get anything done, let alone long enough for me to enjoy cooking/baking.

But they're happy in the LT forever!

Here's a photo of Luke and Jasper making Orange Juice in the Learning Tower (now a daily activity).

We got it from Heirloom Wooden Toys which had the lowest price I found online.

HTH!

Thanks for your response, Lex.

Your sweet little guys look so cooperative! I really like the concept of the learning tower but we really can't afford two (not that we have the room, anyway ) so I am glad to see it works for Jasper and Lukas (and you as well).

I love that website you linked me to, it looks like they have lots of great stuff AND free shipping!

Thanks again.

OMG, lex, your boys are SOOOOO cute!!!!

We have our own version of the learning tower. It's called "DD sits on the kitchen counter while I prepare meals". Her favorite activity right now is to pull the stickers off the fruit in the fruit bowl. Also Lemon Bowling is a popular sport. :LOL
