When we decided to buy this for our 12 month old daughter we were a little sceptical but needed something in the kitchen that would keep her contained. She hated sitting in her high chair when not eating, so this seemed worth a go. Well, both my husband and I were surprised by how well our little girl took to it. It gives her an opportunity to watch us cooking or cleaning while playing with something herself. She even gave the worktop a wipe with her little cloth. The advantages of this product are numerous, she is learning about food and cooking and cleaning while keeping her away from dangerous areas in the kitchen, with over 46000 accidents involving children in the kitchen every year, why take the chance? Why 4 stars and not 5? The one bolt that came with it was useless, when we tried to ring the Little Helper customer services on a weekday afternoon, we were forwarded to voicemail, which was full!!!! We did email though. If you can afford to pay £100, do it, you wont regret it.
