A guide to buying a children's table

Little children need a place to play, do art work, read or simply hang around with their friends and have a nice tea party. If you have kids at home, you should invest in a play table and some small plastic chairs. To find some nice toddler tables and chairs, here are some buying guides.

Size and space

Kids’ play tables may be small, but they still take up some space, so you need to calculate the amount of space that you can spare for the tables and chairs before you go shopping. When calculating your available space, take into consideration the amount of legroom that your kids need to move freely around the table.

Shape, design and materials

Shape
If you have limited space at home, you should opt for a small round kid's activity table instead of a square or rectangular one. Round tables do not take up too much space and they do not have sharp edges that may hurt the little ones. Also, you can opt for folding table and chair set, which you can stow away into a closet after your kids are done playing or doing art work. Folding tables and chairs are also easy to carry around, so you will not have too much trouble moving the play tables and chairs from one room to another. Materials To prevent accidents, you should consider getting plastic or rubberised activity tables and chairs with round edges. A wooden play table is nice and it is more eco-friendly, but a wooden table has a hard surface, which may cause injury if ever your little one accidentally hits his or her head on the table. Colours and designs When it comes to colours and designs, you should go for something that is easy on the eyes.
Children love pastel colours and they like to see some of their favourite cartoon characters on the face of their tables and chairs.

Cost

Good quality toddlers chairs and tables do not have to be very expensive, and if you know where to shop, you should be able to find something that is right on your budget. Budget stores, stores selling used furniture and online auction sites are some of the best places to hunt for cheap, but good quality play tables and chairs.
