Finding The Best Toddler Table And Chairs Set

28 February 2021

A toddler table and chairs set is something I’ve been looking forward to getting for Jin.

At 18 months old, he was used to using a mini table and chair at nursery and was showing signs that he wanted to do the same at home. But do we get a plain one or a full on activity one?

In this post I’ll cover what products are currently available and introduce the set we decided on.

Feel free to jump to the different categories of table sets below or to the table set we bought.


What Features Are Important To You?

As with all large baby/toddler items, the things you may want to consider are:

  • Are you limited for space
  • What’s your budget
  • How long do you want to use it for
  • Do you prefer wooden or plastic material
  • Do you prefer a minimalist or colourful style
  • Is it for play/dining or both

Features I Went Looking For

For us, we’re working with a small living space and a budget of ideally under £50.

My wish list:

  • Multi-functional – can be used as a dinner table and play table but I was particularly looking for a drawing feature
  • Has storage
  • Is easy to store away / disassemble

I feel like I looked at every type of toddler table and chairs set on the internet!

Tip

I recommend you take a photo of how the chairs came nested into the table so you can replicate when storing it away. It was a little tricky for us because we didn’t do this!


A Warning For Under Two’s

The chairs are very lightweight, which is a great because toddler can carry the chair but it also means it can tip easily.

Depending on how tall your toddler is, I recommend you place the chair in front of the sofa or something that can support it so your toddler can’t tip backwards.

If their feet can fully touch the floor, this shouldn’t be a problem.


Final Thoughts

As you can see there are so many options for a toddler table and chairs set, it all depends on what you want for your little one.

For us, we’re loving this table set. Jin enjoys sitting at it for snack time and draws on the whiteboard daily.
