Toosh Coosh FAQ’s:
We’ve put together some answers to the more common enquiries that we get about Toosh Coosh.
What makes Toosh Coosh so soft? It’s made from expandable polyurethane foam that’s an environmentally friendly material so it won’t harm the planet and it’s soft and spongy so it’s comfortable for children’s little tooshes.
How does it stay on the chair without straps? Straps are not needed due to the unique design and circular grip pattern on the base of the product, for added safety which means the seat stays put with the weight of a child. Our research showed that it can be more dangerous if the seat is strapped on to a chair, with the weight of an older child they can easily bring the chair over with them as they fall.
Does it provide enough booster height? It provides juuust enough height for most children aged 3-4yrs depending on their individual size which can vary. Toosh Coosh is more than a booster it’s a support seat that can be used for many years as your children grow into their school years, its great for homework.
How much actual height boost does it provide? Whilst the product is approx. 10cm in height the actual seat gives about 3-4 cm of boost which is the average height needed to reach most tables. The slim line design also means that Toosh Coosh is able to fit under most tables and allows enough leg room clearance between the table and chair for kids to sit comfortably.
Does it fit every type of chair? It fits most chairs round or square and can be used on all material including leather, fabric and timber. Toosh Coosh is not recommended for chairs without backs or some dome shaped seats.
How is seated posture improved? The front is raised so the child sits back down into the bum shaped seat so their legs are slightly elevated at the knee to improve circulation and promote good posture when seated.
How does it improve child safety? The unique bum shape design makes it harder for kids for wiggle around easily or fall off the chair easily.
