Lil Lovebird's Independence Day with Little Partners' Learning Tower

Disclosure: I received a Little Partners Learning Tower and Art Easel for purposes of this review. All opinions expressed are my own. 

If you follow me on Instagram you've seen pictures of my Lil Lovebird using her new Little Partners Learning Tower. Even over the July 4th weekend she used it to help me make our family's traditional Flag Cake:

Nia's at the stage where she likes to help out around the apartment as much as possible, especially in the kitchen, and building off her preschool prep class which ended a few weeks ago the Learning Tower was the perfect addition to continue on the Montessori-based approach we've taken to letting her help out in our home and become an active, independent member of our family.

I was first introduced to Little Partners when I met the President and CEO Carol Gamble at Toy Fair 2013 (you can read my recap here). It was so inspiring to hear how Carol, a fellow mother and Montessori educator found her company - my regular readers know how excited I get to support fellow Mompreneurs!

As a city-dweller I was initially concerned about the space the Learning Tower might occupy, especially in our last apartment which was more narrow than our current one. I've learned that while a collapsible tower's been considered, it isn't the safest, and instead, because it can be used from 18 months until 5 or 6 years old, the longevity of the Learning Tower makes it an investment worth making. Not only can it be used as a traditional tower, but it converts into other fun activity centers such as a puppet theater and art easel.

To show you how easy it was to put the Learning Tower together I made this quick video (and be sure to watch through the end to see a funny outtake with Mr. Lovebird!):


Throughout July I'll be sharing more fun posts featuring our Little Partners Learning Tower, but first, I'm excited to host a giveaway for one of my readers to win the art easel! While the easel can attach to the Learning Tower it can also stand alone mounted to your wall (it comes with the hardware for both). 

Here's Lil Lovebird using the easel - she especially loves using the color coordinated magnet bar to post her art or photos:
