The Tukataka learning tower enables your child to learn new things and discover the world around them. Your child is always safe. The tower has an adjustable height step (three different settings to suit your child depending on their age and height).
You can start using your tower as soon as your child can stand independently, and they are steady on their little feet. For some, it is as soon as they are 10 months old, others it could be 13-14 months of age.
Encourage your child’s development
Your child can climb into the tower and not only see the kitchen surface, the sink, etc. but also participate in some activities (e.g. rolling out the dough, stirring, mixing, washing up, measuring, helping to hang up clothes, brushing their teeth in the bathroom, etc.)
These activities encourage your child’s development and teach them new skills.
Your child will be safe
We all have heard of accidents where a child fell off the chair or stool. Our tower prevents these kinds of accidents. Thanks to the safety railing and adjustable height, along with the safety catches, there is no risk of children accidentally falling and injuring themselves when the Tukataka tower is used.
No more crawling around the house and potentially dangerous exploring missions. You will be able to monitor your child while you are cooking, preparing breakfast, when in your workspace, and during many other activities. Your child is always nearby and under your supervision.
No more carrying your child
Not having to carry your child all the time (especially when you are trying to cook) can be of great help. Using the tower, your child will be able to play, and you will have both hands free to do your usual tasks. Let’s face it, having to carry your child, who could be 10 kg or more, for an extended amount of time could be tiring.
Learning tower can grow together with your child
As your child grows, it would be great to have a tower that could grow with them. The average highchair, stool, or homemade steps are not always flexible and won’t grow with your child. You know the situation – the homemade steps are too high at first and as your child grows, they become too low, resulting in your child having to crouch or strain, or, the safety railing could be too low or too high.
We believe, we have found a solution to this problem. Our Tukataka montessori learning tower has an adjustable height platform step (three-level child step stool). This extends the life of the tower as it can be adjusted to grow with your child according to their height and age. This way, you are only purchasing one tower, which will grow with your little one.
The height settings are as follows:
- highest 50 cm (for the smallest explorers)
- middle 37,5 cm (for children up to 4 years old)
- lowest 25 cm (for older children). Please note that the safety rails can be removed. Your child can get in or out easily anytime under your supervision.
Choose the right colour
You can choose the colour that your child likes or a colour that will suit your kitchen. You can choose to have your tower painted from our palette of 31 different colours or 6 shades of wood.
You can also have more than one colour (e.g. you could have a different colour for the step, or the safety bars). Changing colours of the steps or the safety bars to any other is free of charge.
We know that the little ones like to taste everything. That is why, to paint the Tukataka towers or toys, we only use child-safe paint that is natural, non-toxic, eco-friendly and is Certified Safe.
A high-quality handmade product made in the EU
Every learning tower is handmade with love ❤️. Each is unique and original, and we pay particular attention to every little detail. Our learning towers do not have any visible joints or sharp edges; they are all made in the European Union.
Invest in your child
Tukataka learning tower is a Montessori piece that aims to invest in your child’s development and stimulation. Purchasing it will facilitate hours of playtime for your little ones and provide the opportunity for them to be involved in numerous stimulating activities which will aid in their sensory, cognitive, memory, movement and recognition development.
One of the advantages of the Tukataka learning tower are the supporting legs. They provide stability needed to prevent your child from accidentally toppling the tower over.
The supporting legs are the same colour as the main colour of the kitchen tower. Also they come with Little explorer towers by default, which is optional for extra fee on standard versions.
Customise your learning tower
Your Tower will arrive fully assembled
The Tukataka towers will arrive fully assembled. This means that all you have to do is to unpack your tower and you can start using it immediately. You won’t need any tools to assemble the tower, and you certainly don’t need to reach a master level in flat-pack assembly.

Handmade learning tower
Every Tukataka learning tower is a quality handmade product. Every tower is lovingly handcrafted ❤️. We are very detail orientated. There are no visible nails or joinery. We also ensure that there are no sharp edges on the tower.
Imperfectly perfect - drawbacks of solid wood painting
As you can see, each part of the tower has its own unique structure, depending on how the tree grew.
If you wish to order a tower in a light colour finish (e.g., white, yellow, beige, ivory, light blue) please bear in mind that these colours will not fully cover the natural tree-ring patterns. Although we use two coats of paint, sometimes the structure of the wood will be slightly visible through the paint, which gives the impression of dirt, when in fact it is not. We refer to this as “dirty impression”.
At what age can I start using the learning tower?
You can start using the tower as soon as your child is able to stand independently, and they are steady on their little feet.
Thanks to the height-adjustable step, with the three different height settings, you could use the learning tower up to the age of five years old or be guided by the height of your child.
Can I remove the safety bars from the tower?
Yes. The advantage of Tukataka tower is that the safety bars are removable. Thus your child does not have to be lifted into the tower to get it in our out. You may also allow your child to climb in and out of the tower independently.
Will I be able to adjust the step height for my child?
Yes. Every Tukataka tower has an adjustable step. There are three height adjustable settings. The difference between each height position is 12,5 cm. This means the steps can be adjusted to these heights: 25 cm, 37.5 cm, or 50 cm.
This gives our clients the flexibility to use the tower for many years. Put simply, you can use the Tukataka tower from the moment your child is able to stand independently up to the age of 5 years.

How much does it cost and how much does it take for my tower to arrive?
Each tower is unique, and lovingly hand made. Naturally, hand-made products take longer to make, which is why we may take slightly longer to deliver a finished product.
On average, to make a Tower (single or twin design) with a custom colour finish takes approximately 50 business days.
Adding an abacus or built-in chalkboard may extend the manufacturing process by an additional 5 days. This means, that your custom coloured learning tower with an abacus and chalkboard, will take 55+5=55 business days to create.
Adjusting the height of your Learning tower may extend the manufacturing process by an additional 3 days. Please note: Any height adjustments are classed as custom-made items and cannot be refunded without a reason. This does not affect your statutory legal rights.
If you wish to hand paint your child’s name to the Tower, add extra 2 business days. Meaning that the manufacturing process of your tower will take 50+2=52 business days. Adding an abacus and hand-painting your child’s name takes 15+2+5=22 business days.
All other products (such as magnets, protective grab handles, chef’s sets, etc.) are readily available in our stock, therefore they do not affect the length of the manufacturing process.
