“Hi, I’d like to ask for advice on where to get a table and chair set for a toddler. Is plastic or wood better, and what do other mums think about the Ikea Mammut set? Thank you so much!” Do you have any recommendations for a toddler table and chair set?

  • I have ikea and they are now 7 years old, three children and still going strong. Highly recommend.

  • I like the cheap but good quality ones from k Mart or big w. Doesn’t really matter if it gets damaged coz they won’t use it for too long.

  • I like the plastic ones better but make sure they have a back on them.

  • the outdoor plastic ones are good. the wooden ones are quite sturdy but can’t be used outside as much unles sunder cover

  • A well made wooden set will last longer than plastic. We got one from a second-hand furniture store, and it’s still going strong 10 years after we bought it.

  • i saw a nice plastic one at ikea

  • We got one from BigW it was tinkers brand and has a storage compartment in the top and the top also flips over to be a blackboard.

  • how did you go? :)

  • Hope you managed to find the answer you were looking for.

  • Bunnings and magnet mart have some good ones. Even furniture places do have them as well

  • Did you end up finding a good one

  • Deals Direct have a childrens wooden set, it looks like the outdoor wooden picnic table with long bench style seats.

  • We have both, we got a plastic one from Magnet Mart and a wooden one from second hand store

  • We bought a nice table with 2 chairs from toys r us.

  • If you are after something cheap, I would just try the cheap stores like Crazy Clarks for the plastic ones.
