We've been told that ride-on toys help toddlers develop balance and motor skills, and we don't doubt it's true. Riding toys, though, are generally big for storage, and I'm not going to tell you how many times I've tripped over one. Is there a solution? Perhaps the "A" Wagon has one: when you aren't driving it, turn your ride-on into seating.
The "A" Stool and Wagon has a rather ingenious design; it's a specially-shaped stool with embedded wheels on its top. The result is a sturdy, stable stool that, when flipped over, functions as a ride on. Made from oiled oak and rubber wheels, it looks like a classic piece of furniture that could fit into most decor styles.
And, once your toddler is done riding it, you can still use the piece as a child's stool. We love repurposing!
