Many of us, when alone in our lonesome, have (not!) wondered how and why the first step stool was invented? Does the step stool have an interesting story like high-heel shoes? As almost everyone knows, the high heel was partly invented to accommodate Louis XIV’s smaller stature. The Sun King didn’t want to be intimidated by his courtier’s heights, most of whom were taller than him, so he wore high heels.
Did a king with short stature request a step stool and all the carpenters in the land rush to fulfill his wishes? Well, unfortunately, no. John H. Balsley (May 29, 1823 – March 12, 1895) was a master carpenter and inventor, who invented a practical folding wooden stepladder and receiving the first U.S. patent issued for a safety stepladder. Unfortunately, no king, whether short or tall, was ruling the U.S. at the time.
Balsley’s invention, while useful, was as boring as the step ladders and step stools that you can nowadays find at Walmart or Home Depot.
It took some enterprising minds to think about how to make the normal step stool more appealing and interesting. We think that just like Newton, the first person who thought personalizing the step stool by puzzling a name into it must have had his head examined after something, probably an object much larger than an apple, hit him or her on the head.
Enter Wooden Step Stool With Name Puzzle
Be that as it may, the Personalized Name Puzzle Step Stool first appeared in the market by the middle of the twentieth century. Someone came up with the brilliant idea of taking a wooden step stool and puzzling a child's name into the seat. It was elegant and beautiful but due to the colorful lettering and small size, understandably no adult bought any! The inventor then decided to market it as a Children Personalized Name Puzzle Stool and the rest, as they say, is history.
