This step stool is perfect. Not only is it eco-friendly, but it is the tallest kids step stool I've found. We have another step stool, but it's too short to help my son reach the big potty, or even the sink to wash his hands. This is just the right height for both. It is slightly taller than the Baby Bjorn (I set them side by side in the store to test), and measures 7.5" tall. The picture on Amazon makes the top of the stool look like it's a different color than the rest of the stool, but it's not...same color as the legs, it's just the non-slip texture reflecting in the flash.
