I am on the hunt for a timber table and chairs set for my kids. Their  ages range between 3 and 6. The chairs from Ikea are too small- I am looking for something a little bigger. Any suggestions would be great.

  • Hardware stores are great for timber products for tge whole family. Good place to start

  • I would try Bunnings or maybe Toys ‘r Us.

  • Ask on your local Buy Swap & Sell page on Facebook.
    Often local tradesmen will advertise on there.
    Most are flexible & can build anything to what you desire.
    & they’re usually quite affordable!
    Otherwise check out your local markets & garage sales.
    Best of luck!

  • We found ours at a local craft market. Locally handmade and it’s super sturdy and looks nice.

  • did you find anything? I looking for something now for my two

  • Maybe a local carpenter would agree to make you up some chairs and a table in the size you want.

  • We have a Jolly Kidz set but that may be too small for a 6 yr old

  • there is a store called Just Kids furniture in Victoria and you can custom make some things – maybe there is a similar store in your area

  • you can find a lot of cool things at the markets… and can meet people who might be able to make something for you

  • what did you use in the end

  • there are some good comments here

  • Ikea has everything- see if you can find one there.

  • I have searched for them as well with no success sorry. Hope you have better luck

  • You could possibly seek out a local tradesman or even your local mens shed, they come up with some amazing creations. Also set up a search alert on gumtree and eBay, you never know what you’ll find on there!

  • Look on Facebook to see if you can find a local tradesman to make one, there are some
    Great ones out there!
