Buying Children's Table and Chairs

K ids need a table and chairs of their own to do their homework or scribble away with their crayons. But, they've got to be comfortable while they do it. That should be the most important factor when you're looking at all the options in children's tables and chairs.

Children's table and chairs and where to find them...

You may find some good deals at garage sales on children's tables and chairs. Garage sales almost always have children's items available, especially if it's a garage sale from a whole family. That is the cheapest route, then you can search local furniture stores and write down the model numbers to go look up online and compare all the prices.

Plastic is usually the best option as far as materials go, especially if your kids will only be using these items for a couple years and you don't have any more kids to pass the items down to for further use. You will need to figure out how long you're going to be using a children's table and chairs before you ever set foot in a store or start clicking away through some websites getting excited about what you're going to get.

Make sure you figure out the size of the chair and your child before you pick the one out that looks the most cute! They should range from around 7 1/2 inches (for toddlers to two-year-olds) to 13 1/2 inches (for five-year-olds), unless your child is over five or six years old.

Make sure your kid's feet can touch the ground when they sit on their chair. Not only is it unconfortable to sit in a chair where you can't touch the ground, it also makes children feel like they are "big boys and girls" when they can sit like everyone else at their very own children's table and chairs!
