Is your current office chair just not working for you? Do you get up from it at the end of each day with an aching back and pins and needles in your legs?

Have those facts prompted you to consider alternative office seating options? Is there something better you could be sitting on or in?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you will be intrigued by this review. The Jummico Standing Desk Stool is a delightfully low-cost seating option, allowing you to explore the unconventional office seating world without spending much money. That’s its main attraction. Then, if you decide it’s to your liking when this little stool starts showing its age, upgrading to something more robust is a simple matter.

If that sounds like what you’re looking for, keep reading. The following sections will explain everything this handy standing stool offers and its limitations. It just might be a perfect fit for you!

Key Features of the Jummico Standing Stool

Unobtrusive. That’s the first word likely to pop into your head when you see this little standing stool for the first time. The Jummico Standing Desk Stool is not extraordinarily attractive, but it is not ugly. It’s functional. It looks like it has a job and is anxious to get there.

If you want one, you can order it with either blue or grey upholstery. These colors blend seamlessly into most home or office environments and give the stool a little flash and flair that it wouldn’t have if offered in basic black.

Chair Specifications

Before we go any further, let’s take a quick look at the core stats defining the model. Here they are:

  • Overall Product Dimensions: 15” x 8.3” x 23”
  • Stool Weight: 23 pounds
  • Maximum Supported Weight: 250 pounds
  • Seat Height Adjustment Range: 24.5” to 31.5”

There are a couple of noteworthy things to talk about here. First and foremost, this stool is probably too large from a height adjustment perspective to work well with a conventional desk. It was specifically designed for use with standing desks or drafting tables.

Second, the weight limit is fairly modest, making it a non-starter for bigger and taller folk. However, the 250-pound weight limit is the norm for alternative office seating. So, in that respect, the Jummico Standing Stool is perfectly in line with most of its peers.

Finally, the stool’s relatively modest weight makes it easy to pick it up and take it with you if your job sees you moving about the office throughout a typical workday and you want to bring your perch.

Seat Design

The other noteworthy thing in this section is the surprisingly innovative seat design, which is not captured by the basic stats above. We don’t normally see much innovation from an off-brand like this, so the seat is a pleasant surprise.

It’s inspired by the seats you find on saddle stools, but the company went the extra mile and sculpted it for an added ergonomic benefit. It’s a small detail but something you don’t often find on seats of this kind, and we have to give Jummico props for its inclusion.

This type of seating wasn’t meant for someone who spends 8+ hours a day in front of their computer. It’s more the equivalent of a task chair in conventional office seating, designed for relatively short periods at various points throughout the day, with the expectation that the person using it will be up and moving about at regular intervals. This is a great, value-priced option if that describes your typical workday.

Adjustability and Comfort

The stool only has one adjustable feature, which we discussed above. You can adjust the seat height. That’s it. You won’t buy this stool because it offers a gazillion different ways of adjusting it. Nor are you going to buy it because it’s luxuriously padded. It isn’t. There’s enough conventional block foam to make it comfortable for sitting for short periods, but again, it’s not something a power user will be happy with.

What it is good at, though, is keeping your spine properly aligned, reducing lower back pain, reducing hip pain courtesy of the saddle-style seat, improving the circulation of your lower extremities, and reducing leg pain. If you suffer from any of those, or several of them in combination, this stool will almost feel like a miracle cure.

It’s also good for a low-intensity core workout because you’ll have to move and adjust to maintain your balance constantly. That’s not nearly as bad as it sounds because all of that happens more or less subconsciously while you’re sitting on the stool.

That’s fantastic because if you want to improve your fitness level, tone your muscles, and burn more calories over a typical day, this stool will help you. It can be an important part of your daily office workout routine.

Unfortunately, if you have poor sitting habits before you buy one of these, you’ll find the first week or so an uncomfortable adjustment because the stool doesn’t brook any slouching. If you sit on it, you will sit properly whether you want to or not. Some people find that first week adjusting to the new reality a bit uncomfortable, but most people love it once they get used to it.

The final thing to mention in this section is the base. It’s beveled in the same way that the similarly-priced Amazon Basics Task Stool is. Suppose you like that design but are looking for something with a more ergonomic seat. In that case, this little stool belongs on your shortlist of products to consider, though note that, as with that stool, until you’ve become fully accustomed to it when you get up from your stool, you are a bit more likely to knock it over: a small detail, but something to be mindful of.

Assembly is a Lesson in Simplicity

Like the vast majority of office furniture sold today, the Jummico Standing Stool will arrive at your doorstep in a sizeable box and unassembled. Fortunately, stool assembly only takes a matter of minutes. There aren’t many parts to contend with; few go together exactly as you’d expect them to.

Even better, although this is a Chinese import and made with lower-quality materials, the production quality of these Jummico office chairs is pleasantly high, so you shouldn’t encounter any difficulties in getting the pieces to fit together like they’re supposed to.

Unsurprisingly, this stool doesn’t come with an expert assembly option, and even if it did, we wouldn’t recommend it—why pay more than the stool is worth for an ‘expert’ to spend five minutes putting it together for you? It just wouldn’t be a cost-effective service in any case. Kudos to Jummico for offering such an unexpectedly good-quality product!

Pros and Cons of Jummico Standing Desk Stool

There’s little to say in this section of our Jummico Standing Desk Stool review. The biggest pros are that the stool is delightfully low-priced and of better quality than expected. It also comes with a surprisingly comfortable seat that combines elements of several different types of alternative seating in one inexpensive package. It’s one-part standing stool, one-part saddle stool, and one-part AmazonBasics Activity Stool. That’s impressive.

The only real negative is that it’s not built to last. It will provide you with a year or two of reliable service before you start considering replacing it. Then again, it’s so inexpensive that it’s neither unexpected nor burdensome.

Final Thoughts on Jummico Standing Desk Stool Review 

For the money, the Jummico Standing Desk Stool is a surprisingly great little stool. Granted, it’s not for everyone, but if you’re looking for an inexpensive way to test the waters of unconventional office seating and give several alternatives a try at the same time, this is a nice option to consider. On that basis, we provisionally recommend it.
