where to get a stool for hand-washing??

Hi, my son is 2 and he has one of those potties that you put the top down and it is a stool, but i'm really wanting a higher stool to use to wash hands in the kitchen. actually, he can barely reach the faucet in the bathroom with that stool as well. i have only seen short, flimsy stools in toy departments at stores. so what kind of stools do other moms use, and where did you get 'em?

  • Get a step stool, in housewares at Wal-Mart. Near the laundry baskets and such

  • I got a great stool at bed bath and beyond. It folds up easily for tucking away when not in use.

  • Wal-Mart!!! They have some rectangle ones by the infant/toddler section, but you can check out the ones by the laundry baskets too!!! We got the rectangle one and it is sturdy and has non-slip grippers where your child steps.

  • walmart does have them like team21 said but if you have an IKEA around where you live they have the same rectangular ones a lot cheaper only like $4.. but the one i got for my baby i got it at the dollar section from target ... it really cost me $2.50 but it holds up really good and my baby likes it ! ;o)
