Behold the mysterious STEPONBOX

STEPONBOXTalk about truth in advertising: The STEPONBOX is a storage box that also functions as a stool. That you can step on. And a ton more.

Available in four Jetsons-esque color combinations, the STEPONBOX is crafted of Polypropylene and Thermoplastic Elastomeric, which in non-sciency terms, means it’s free of PVC, phthalates and heavy metals, and also that it’s possibly from Superman’s home planet. It can withstand up to 100 kilos of pressure, so almost your entire family can stand on it… or try to. And it has so many uses. Stand on it. Sit on it. Store toys in it. It even has a drain plug and is water tight, so you could technically make soup in it.

This cool product from the UK is so new that we can’t even tell you
where to buy it yet. In the words of Douglas Adams, it’s so hip it can’t
see over its own pelvis.

Where can you get it? We don’t know! How much does it cost? Not a clue!

But is so awesome we wanted to tell you about it? Heck, yeah. ~Delilah

    Arrrgh! I’m so frustrated these aren’t available yet. I’m in desperate need of a step stool, but I just haven’t found one I’m happy with. This seems perfect!

    a mysterious and powerful device, whose mystery is only exceeded by its power

    (okay, I got that from Dude, Where’s My Car, but I thought it fit.)

    It’s nicer looking than most of the step stools you see.
