Little hands can have a tough time tying thick blankets to furniture. The slots in the sides allow blankets to be fastened without the need for knots! Simply pull a corner in though the big top hole, then down to wedge the blanket in the bottom.

(And Don’t worry, Moms and Dads, the edges and corners are all chamfered, and every edge is sanded smooth, so blankets won’t catch or tear when used with the stool)

Welcome to the forum. I have to say that is a pretty cool looking chair.

Welcome to LJ! I’m new here too!

Yes, very interesting. I’m not sure how to use it? Why would a child tie a blanket to the chair?

Kids are always making forts and tents out of furniture and pillows and blankets. This makes it easier to do so and doubles as a gate into said fort/castle/tent

Gee, I remember making a fort in the living room with several blankets over numerous chairs and tables. How fun this one is going to be to en-fort!

It’s 12” high and 16” wide. Pretty small, but I was aiming this at the 4-6 year olds.

Welcome to LJ’s. That is a cool idea. My daughters and I make forts and cheetah dens in the living room about every other day. It should provide lots of fun for little imaginations.

I like it! It’s cool when big people can tap into their inner child and come up with something only other kids can see the fun that can be had with it. Great Idea.
