I am looking for a step stool for my daughter's birthday. I am in love with the one from Nova Natural's, but they are backordered right now. Does anyone have suggestions for other natural looking step stools? Thanks!

I would suggest looking on etsy or at local craft shops and fairs.  The little stool that we have came from a craft shop.  Do make sure it is light enough for a little one to lift and carry to where she needs the step up. smile.gif

Homegoods, ikea, and toysrus actually have a nice wooden one. That NN one is lovely though.

If you have a Michaels craft store nearby, they carry plain wooden step stools in the unfinished wood section. Pretty inexpensive too esp if you have a coupon!

Test the Michael's ones, though. Some are pretty unstable! Not all, though, just certain shapes(the heart one springs to mind).
