Little tikes table and chairs – plastic and wooden sets for your child
Little Tikes table and chairs set comes in various models. Depending on your preference, you can have a square or round table and you also have a choice between plastic and wooden construction. Some parents also look for sets that have specific cartoon characters on them to please their young kids.
When choosing table and chairs for your toddler, you do need to make a choice between a light and heavy set. If the set is made of light plastic, your child can push it around and it is easy for him to get his table and chair to the exact spot he wants. There is less noise when he drags the table and chairs around and there is also less likelihood of having scratches on your floor with all the pushing that he will be doing. The drawback is a light plastic chair is easier to topple over when your child can’t sit still on it. He will also be able to turn the table over without much effort.
On the other hand, if you choose a heavier table and chairs set, it may be sturdier. But it is likely to be more costly and when your toddler pushes them around the house, they may cause scratches on your floor due to the weight, especially if they are made of wood.
The Little Tikes table and chairs models give you a few options so that you can decide which is best for your child. You can weigh the costs and benefits of each and how much you are willing to spend on a set before committing to a purchase. But it is something that you do have to buy sooner rather than later, because your child does need a table and chair of the right height for him to eat, play, read and draw comfortably on.
