At HipKids, we have a huge selection of children’s table and chair sets especially built with the needs of little people in mind.
Adult furniture is not designed for children and can cause poor posture later in life, so our furniture is designed to be fun as well as supportive for growing bodies. And while our furniture is small in size, it’s certainly not lacking in design. Each piece is simple and durable, and would make a stylish addition to any kitchen, rumpus room, bedroom or nursery.
Your kids will love the comfort and confidence they get from using furniture designed just for them, inspiring them to have fun and be creative every day. And our range has been tested to meet the demands of your child’s daily life, making it perfect for meal time, play time and craft activities.
Our range of kids tables and table & chair sets incorporate a range of clever features and benefits including:
Setting up a designated area for your kids to play, craft, and learn can help them develop important skills and form better homework habits! Plus, it can help cut down on some of the clutter lying around the house.
Studies have shown that encouraging young children to create art can foster physical, social and cognitive skills, especially if they're working in a group. Learning experts suggest that creating a homework space can help kids to focus on their assignments, and can be particularly beneficial to kids with attention problems.
What better way to tackle both of those problems than finding a great kid table and chairs set?
We're going to talk about some of the kid table and chairs sets that are available on the market and how to pick the best one for your home!
Before we get into our personal recommendations, we'd like to cover some of the things you'll want to think about before you start looking. It's important to consider the space you have available and your kid's specific needs!
If you have growing toddlers, it might be tempting to buy a taller table and chairs so that you won't have to replace the set any time soon. However, you don't want to get something so big that they can't use it at all for a couple of years!
For a chair to be the perfect fit, your kid's knees should be bent at a 90-degree angle with their feet flat on the floor. This is more comfortable and more accessible than a chair that is too tall or too low. It can also help your kid develop good posture from an early age!
If you don't want to have to replace the entire set within a year or so, consider buying your kids table and chairs separately. That way, you can purchase a taller table that is still usable even when the chairs are too small. Or, look for table and chair sets that are adjustable!
Decide in advance where you want to put the kid table and chairs. That way you know how much space you're working with and what size and shape the table ought to be.
For example, if the table is going to be the focal point of a certain room, you can afford to get a larger table and a round shape won't be a hindrance. If you know the table needs to be pushed up against one wall or tucked away in a corner, you'll be better off with a square or rectangular table.
If one or two sides are going to be blocked off by walls, think about seating. If you plan to squeeze four chairs around two sides of a table, you'll probably want something longer so there's still plenty of elbow room.
Finally, optimize the space you have with storage. If you don't have room to spare for supply bins and cubbies, consider finding a kids table with storage built in!
Envision the space you're planning on setting up for your kid. What are they doing there? Knowing what you want your kid table and chairs for will help you to narrow down the options.
Age will likely play into this decision. Younger kids may benefit more from a space that allows for messy activities and social interaction. Older kids may need a traditional desk designed for one person so that they can focus on their homework.
You may even decide that your ideal table belongs outdoors. In that case, you will need to find something made for the outdoors. They will usually be made of some kind of metal, durable plastic, or treated wood.
Even if you plan on bringing the table and chairs back and forth between indoors and outdoors, it will still be a good idea to get a set designed for outdoor use. That way, you don't have to worry about damage caused by the elements or a sudden change in the weather!
Now that you have an idea of what you're looking for in mind, we're going to show you some of the table and chairs sets that we love!
The Jensen Table & 4 Chair Set is perfect for parents with toddlers or younger kids that like to play and create in groups.

It can be hard to take time out of your busy schedule to make space for cognitive learning activities like arts and crafts. It can also be hard to convince your older kids to get their homework done on time.

Plus, giving them their own area to create and learn will help you to cut down on the mess around the house and teach them how to be responsible for their supplies!
