Introducing the Martha Stewart Kitchen Helper – Safety and Style Combine in the Best Step Stool for Toddlers



Guidecraft, celebrating over 50 years of developing innovative educational environments in classrooms and at home, is teaming up with Martha Stewart and Marquee Brands again to launch a line of Martha Stewart Kitchen Helpers following the success of the collaborative Martha Stewart Living and Learning Kids’ Furniture Collection. The Kitchen Helper by Guidecraft is the original safety step stool for toddlers and has been a category leader since its inception in 2008.

The Martha Stewart Kitchen Helper features a new design inspired by fine, custom kitchen cabinetry and comes in 4 trending color choices; creamy white, charcoal, taupe, and mint green. Details such as the inset acrylic windows, two mesh Keepers, a non-slip mat, and a secure, adjustable platform for growing children, all support the mission of providing the safest way to elevate young children to countertop height promoting the feeling of independence as well as family togetherness.



“This new launch combines the strength of the Martha Stewart brand in home, crafting and cooking with the focus on family and togetherness of our flagship product, the Kitchen Helper. In addition to bringing increased recognition to the product and the category, the success of the collaboration ultimately translates to helping children gain more agency in terms of learning, social emotional development, and connectedness,” states President of Guidecraft, Gary Bilezikian.

Kitchens are ideal environments for nurturing a child’s early development and love for learning. They are hands-on classrooms in a real-life setting where children can observe adults at work, engage their senses, develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination, and apply language and math skills. A sturdy step stool like the Kitchen Helper embeds your child in the kitchen, offering a safe and secure space in which to learn as well as join in on family activities.

In a four-part series, writer Mina Hochberg shares how a safe, sturdy step stool like the Kitchen Helper can become an important part of a child’s physical and emotional development. Each of her new blogs will dive into topics like kitchen safety and the creation of a child-friendly kitchen environment, family traditions and opportunities for bonding in the kitchen and simple tasks for children to take charge of as they build confidence and gain independence. When you invite your children to join you in the kitchen, there are many activities you can offer to stimulate their curiosity and enrich their minds.
