Is finding kids’ step stools that are sturdy but will also look nice around your house too much to ask? As a new mom, a lot of the stools I saw for sale were cheap, but the plastic primary colors look was cramping my style. I am no longer a new mom, and we’ve been through quite a few step stools- with some really good ones that have lasted over the years!
“Me help too!” I am well versed in the independent child. Either you give your kid the step stool so they can safely help you, or they climb up on the counter and “help” that way, right?
I have 12 of the cutest stools rounded up for you here! This includes affordable little stools for small spaces, to the more high end that even adults may want to keep out and around for themselves.

We leave our kids’ step stools out in our kitchen like a piece of furniture. It’s nice that this one is aesthetically pleasing, as well as strong and reliable- even for me.
Some are these would be great in a bathroom – others for the main areas of the house – but all 12 of these step stools below will look great in your home!

2. Teak Step Stool
This is our kitchen step stool. The fact that this step stool is made of teak (teak is water-resistant!) is probably why it has lasted so long for us in perfect condition! We are going on 3 years with our lightweight step stool, well used by 4 children daily. Jose and I also use this stool also to reach the tallest upper cabinets in the kitchen.
I have it on furniture felt pieces so it doesn’t scratch the floor, and it glides around smoothly. I ended up loving it so much we bought another for the kids’ bathroom upstairs!
This stool would also look great out and about in your home or could coordinate in a cute bathroom. The powder coated white frame won’t rust.
4. Black Step Stool
Have you considered kids’ step stools on Etsy yet? This shop has over a thousand positive reviews, and you can feel good about supporting a small shop too. This modern and sleek step stool is modern and cool! (Not only that- but they make a toddler step stool, or a leaning stool too!)
This kids’ step stool (available off Amazon!) is called a utility stool because it can be used by adults too. It comes in a few colors, but if you like to DIY you could paint this wooden stool any fun color!
Two of my children have this step stool with their own name on it- it was a fun personalized gift from their grandma! They love the puzzle – especially as toddlers who wanted to put their letters in and out, in and out. (Don’t like the pastel? They come in primary colors too).
I am a huge fan of Maisonette and their high quality crafted toys. This one has a little storage in the top.
This round up is starting to make me feel like either a)I’ve been a mother for hundreds of years or b) I’ve owned just about every step stool ever made. This one used to come in red, and my mom bought it for me when we had our first child. In fact, that boy is now 12! It is very well made, and I love the storage aspect at the top!
Don’t be fooled by this pink step stool (found off Amazon!) It is sturdy- holding up to 260lbs, and comes in a variety of colors.
I can envision these stools side by side in a shared girls’ bathroom at double sinks. Or put one in each bathroom! They also come in a fun shade of green. Don’t forget your 20% off coupon!
