Design meets wellness. From drawing to reading and studying, kids spend a lot of time sitting - a whopping 80-90% of their day. This height-adjustable, standing desk for the home’s ergonomic design, which accommodates items like toys, notebooks, and laptops instills a healthy practice from a young age.

Nine settings adjust based on the day’s needs and your child’s growth.

Health benefits include improved posture, increased blood flow, and heightened focus.
