A Healthy Body Maintains a Good Posture


Stools come in two sizes, a 6.5"(H) for toddlers and a slightly taller 11"(H) stool for preschoolers. Inspired by the stools originally ideated by RIE founder Magda Gerber, they allow children freedom of movement that regular chairs do not. Infants and toddlers also use the stools as play surfaces.

The Stools are perfectly suited for young children since they do not need a back support. Pairs with RAD Toddler Height Tables and RAD Preschool Height Tables.

It's perfect!

We love our Magda Stool! She uses it to play like a lily pad and at the entry as her stool to sit as we get ready for walks.


Awesome stool. Handmade. Perfect for our child.


Bought this with the toddler table. My son uses it everyday.

Hailey P. (San Antonio, US)
Very sturdy and helps with my child’s independence

The height and weight are perfect for little ones learning to get into a chair by themselves. My son has cerebral palsy, so he’s still working on motor skills. I love that the stool helps to strengthen his core while preparing him to get onto it independently, something he cannot do with a regular infant chair because he has to be walking due to the back of the chair.
