The FunPod was created by a mother in the UK. The parents enjoyed spending time in the kitchen. The designer/parent Kim wanted her daughter to participate in cooking activities safety and she needed the freedom to move about the kitchen without a child on her hip. Heralded as socially responsible by a leading obesity expert in the UK, the FunPod encourages children to learn all about the whole food experience and can encourage parent and child bonding with quality time spent preparing meals. Children form their habits and opinions between the ages of one and four so this is an essential time to be giving them a healthy food education. There are 5 settings accommodating the average height of a 12 month baby up to a toddler of 6 so at whatever level, the top of the FunPod™ is always at chest height for safety reasons. Manufactured in a durable, high quality FSC MDF (recycled material), selected for high durability. Product exterior is non-toxic commercial laminate chosen for water resistance and easy of cleaning. Launch date: January 2011.
