A "step stool" is a short flight of steps, like a miniature staircase (but portable), used by persons of short stature (e.g., kids) to reach a book or toy on a high shelf, or to climb into the upper bunk of a bunk bed. A step stool would also be useful to an adult in failing health: as America's population ages, and old folks find it more and more difficult to reach the anise on the top row of the spice rack, or to climb into bed at night, step stools will probably become a common sight in homes and apartments.
Step Stool Universe specializes in step stools, including wooden and metal ones in a wide variety of types and designs. They also carry step ladders, some of "industrial" size.
I ordered an "Adult Two Step Baltic Birch White Step Stool" in February of 2011, noting the warning that these are made to order, so I might have to wait a bit for delivery. In fact, I received my order within 11 working days. The step stool was solid, well-made, and proved to be quite useful.
If you're looking for a sturdy set of portable steps, and can't find just what you need locally, try Step Stool Universe: if you can't find what you need on their website, you'll probably need to have the item custom-made.
