As the founder of a food and cooking website it's no surprise that I'm often found in the kitchen. As her daddy and I cook, our early walking one-year old daughter Emery runs circles around us, banging her wooden spoons against the cupboards. To our delight, she clearly shows signs of wanting to participate in the culinary activities, but our main concern is obviously how to keep her safe in this room full of bubbling pots, hot surfaces and sharp instruments. Fortunately, Carol Gamble, the founder of Little Partners, came up with a brilliant solution: The Learning Tower. Far beyond a stool, the Learning Tower provides a safe and secure environment for your child to explore his or her environment - be it in the kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. Now Emery can safely join us in the kitchen as a budding sous chef!
