The Penguin Stander is an upright standing frame for children aged approximately two years and four years, although suitability depends on the size of the child. A range of adjustments are built in so that it can cater for the standing needs of a wide range of young children and also for the changing needs of the child. It has an adjustable tray with a cut out in the middle in which a bowl can be placed.

Extra product information

Features
Sandals
These are adjusted by loosening the wing nuts underneath the base and then the sandals are able to slide along the slots.
The sandals can be adjusted sideways, forwards and backwards.
The wing nuts are then tightened to secure the sandals in place.
The sandals feature cross over straps which secure by hook and loop. A heel strap is also present.
