Fettucine, sorry, a bit late, but u might want to look at Kinder Fun. They have a showroom at Centrepoint:

176 Orchard Road #05-15 Centrepoint Shopping Centre
Singapore 238843
Tel: (65) 6733 6988

Their tables are cheap relative to the incredibly high pricing that the term "ergonomic" seem to associate itself with products.

You can try crosscom at FOrum, next to Wheelock Place. two of my children have study tables and cupboards from there, although the prices are really exorbitant... :cry:

I think the word "exorbitant" don't even begin to decribe the price tags on items at Crosscom :)... it's as boutique as you can get for kids' furniture.

true...each of the study tables i bought cost $1000++ and now i hear the prices have gone up again. but the furniture is adjustable when the child grows bigger and there are many designs. also, there are tables for adults too.

Just visited their showroom at Forum today. Crosscom bags cost between $230-280. cant comment on anything else as have not used it before

But i need feedback regarding their table and chair though. The set of table, chair and table light cost $3600 and waiting time is at least 16 weeks if the order is placed today. Any comments from anyone who owns a set if this is worth investing in??

Hi

Both my children have been using cross com bags since primary one. On the whole, the bags are sturdy and lasting. Most importantly, it provides good support for their spines considering the weight of the books they have to carry. It is value for money and in my opinion, a worthwhile investment for a good six years or more.
