Hi! I am looking for a GOOD wooden toddler table that will comfortabley suit my 19 month old. We are using a lot of the Montessori concepts with my son and a nice table is a necessity for us. I found the one in the Michael Olaf catalog (14" tall) but I had really hoped for one around 15 - 16" tall so that we had a little growing room.<br><br>
I have searched all over the internet and can not find anything that seems to match my description. I was hoping that mabey someome could help point me in the right direction.<br><br>
Thanks!

Have you an ikea in your area? I think they are doing online sales also at <a href="http://www.ikea.com." target="_blank">www.ikea.com.</a> We love, or should say our ds loves, his table and chair set...the model is the svala...only $29 but you do have to assemble and stain, of course.

We have an ikea table and it's great. Not sure what the model is, but it's white and has a matching bench. I think the table was $40 and the bench $20. We have it in the living room and it looks really nice--not like kids' furniture. HTH!<br><br>
peace, Beth

we got one at an unfinished furniture place in our area, C J Woodmaster. it's solid wood, which i really appreciate. might be a leeetle tall for a 19 mo old, but he's only gonna grow, right? the one we got is round with 2 wooden chairs, but i think they had rectangular ones, too. i'd check the unfinished furniture places in your area. even if you're not into the staining and finishing a lot of times those places will do it for you. i think i've seen our table for sale in pottery barn kids or some other catalog for about twice what we paid.<br><br>

I've been really happy with the chairs and tables I've gotten from<br><a href="http://www.communityplaythings.com" target="_blank">http://www.communityplaythings.com</a> They're mostly designed for schools, but they have a lot of choices in table height and chairs. The me-do-it chairs were great young toddler chairs. Their stuff is rock solid. Pricy, but I'm planning on a long time of use for these...I didn't want something I'd just throw out in a couple of years.

I noticed that Target has the table and chairs we have on sale this week for a pretty reasonable price. (Wooden, white legs and chair back, natural wood tabletop and chair seats.) We've been really happy with them. Dd is a tall 2.5 year old, so I'm not positive the height will be right for your 19mo, but it's worth a look.

I'm ordering a toddler table from this company: <a href="http://www.lordequip.com/" target="_blank">http://www.lordequip.com/</a> Kinda pricey but not any more than Michael Olaf and they look beautiful.<br><br>
We use the Montessori method, too. Have you read the new Paula Polk Lillard zero to three book? Great book.<br><br>
