Meet Our Guest: Totriser

Let’s meet Olga, the proud owner of Totriser:

My name is Olga Cahill and I live on the Northern Beaches in Sydney, NSW. I have a very patient husband and two divine sons – 5 & 7 years old. I have spent half my life divided between Sydney and Melbourne where I was born.

About Totriser:

I’m pleased to introduce my practical and fun boosters to you. It all happens at www.totriser.com and you can tag along with me on Facebook www.facebook.com/totriser.

You might like to take a peek at how Tot Riser came about:

Children are often uncomfortable at the dinner table in the early years. When children outgrow their dedicated high chair they move to the family chairs at the dinner table and still need the boost up. Many families resort to a variety of home-made solutions with varying degrees of success. In my circle of friends and my own experience, it seems that the odd cushion and even phone book is popular.
I was frustrated with the cleaning and lack of stability of these items and really they are not aesthetically appealing either. Frustrated with the mess and lack of enthusiasm my children showed at the table I knew there was something wrong. I took a good hard look at the situation before me and found they looked super uncomfortable. How can you avoid making a mess, stop fidgeting and look interested in a meal when you are chin height to the dinner table? That was it!!! I put myself at their level and the answer became clear. I made it my mission to do something about it back in September 2009 and the Tot Riser was born.

Our Planet Matters!

Our Environment humbles me. I find myself wondering what our legacy will be for our children and beyond. More and more I make my decisions count and my opinions vocal.. Sadly it has been a real learning curve for our generation but the up side is that at least my children’s generation knows early on just how vital their choices are. We are waste free where possible, we make many of our own gifts and cards and we are fastidious in recycling. I am proud of the messages my boys carry with them.
