The reason I chose this gift for a special baby is that my grandson received one of your stools when he was born 3 1/2 years ago. When he was a baby, his mom used it as a footstool when she nursed. As he grew he sat and then stood on it. He uses the puzzle to learn letters and fine motor coordination. All in all, it's the gift he's gotten the most enjoyment from and has used longer than any other. Thanks for making such a fine product.
