I bought my DS his first set of small table and chairs from ikea. After DS outgrew them, they were passed over to my niece

like tankee, i got mine from ikea too. the round/rect table is just as good as little tikes and fisher price. price is so much cheaper too.

for chairs, i got those with a high back instead of the round ones.

you can go to daiso to buy small chair cushion with straps to put on the chair.

we are still using the ikea table and chairs (ds is 8 yrs old).

For my kid, I got the foldable chair and a foldable table. Made the kid sit down and place the portable folding table right on the lap. :lol: No longer able to run about when writing. :boogie:

Same as above link, but not sure where to get locally. I bought from overseas.
