How it works

When it comes to raising children there is so much that needs to be taught. It’s not until your little one becomes a toddler that you begin to understand how the little details of life are the most important to teach. Something as simple as teaching your child how to properly sit at a table and act like a human seems self-explanatory for anyone, but when faced with an unruly child or a child who has an insatiable appetite for curiosity, you begin to realize that the most self-explanatory of behaviors must be taught. It’s reasons like this that Little Tikes has developed furniture that is the perfect size for your toddler. The Little Tikes Bright n’ Bold Table and Chairs are the perfect addition to your child’s playroom and daily routine. The set is at the right height and dimensions for your little one and it gives them more than just a place to sit and eat or play. Little Tikes Bright n Bold Table and Chairs give your child a sense of themselves and their space.

 

Design

Design

The Little Tikes Bright n’ Bold Table and Chairs are designed to fit your toddler and their needs. The set comes with a blue table and two green chairs. The table measures about 19 inches off the floor and the seats of the chairs are about 10.5 inches off the ground. The set is made entirely of smooth, hard plastic that has a level of softness and give to it that makes the set comfortable to sit in and play on without bumps, scrapes, or discomfort. The table has a small ridge that goes around the entire circumference of the table that helps young ones keep their crayons and toys on the table by preventing them from falling. The ridge is quite short, but tall enough for pencils and crayons. The chairs are tall enough for little ones to learn how to sit in and play at the table. The chairs are also at the proper height that they fit perfectly underneath the table so that when playtime is over, the entire unit fits into itself and can be stored anywhere without being in the way.
Safety

Safety

The basic purpose of the Little Tikes Bright n’ Bold Table and Chairs is to give your toddler a place where they can sit and play. The table is durable enough that it can take the shock of children pounding toys on the tabletop or banging on it with their hands. The chairs are durable enough to be knocked over or pushed around the house without getting scuffed or damaged. The table is pretty childproof. The chairs, however, are very light in order to give children the opportunity to learn how to push their chairs in and pull their chairs out as they would do in a restaurant. The downside to the light weight of the chairs is that children can very easily tip them over while they are sitting in them. The tipping will result in them falling to the floor or tipping into the table and getting hurt by hitting the table or flipping the table along with the chairs. It is advised that parents keep a watchful eye out when their child is sitting or playing at the set because they can very easily get hurt if they are playing too rough or not properly sitting in the chairs. Other than that, the table is round and all the corners of the tables and chairs are round making the set quite safe for children to play around and play with.
Easy to Clean

Easy to Clean

One of the biggest perks to using the Little Tikes Bright n’ Bold Table and Chairs is that it is extremely easy to clean. The smooth plastic finish of the set makes wiping it down and wiping it off easy. Use just a damp sponge or any kind of household cleaner and the mess is gone. The table won’t stain, so as long as you use a non-abrasive or non-bleach product, the table should come clean with ease. You can wipe down the table with something as gentle as a baby wipe or household cleaner wipe for quicker cleanup. The table is made to eat at and play at so glues, crumbs, toys, crayon marks, and pencil marks are all wiped away with great ease. Some parents have found that toys that were leaving marks and nicks on their wooden tables were not making the same marks or scratches on the Little Tikes Bright n Bold table, so having a table for your child will help save your own furniture from playtime and sharp toys. Little children love to have an area where they can play without getting yelled at or told what to do or how to act. Several children can sit around and play at the table and have the freedom to experiment with their toys, and parents welcome this time not only because it’s essential to their children’s development but also because clean up is such a breeze.
Light Weight

Light Weight

The Little Tikes Bright n’ Bold Table and Chairs is extremely lightweight. The entire set weighs about 13 pounds, which is light enough for you to bring the set from room to room depending on where you want to set up your child’s playtime, and yet, it is heavy enough that your little one can’t easily pick it up and drag it all over the house. Be reminded that the chairs of the set are light enough for your young one to drag them around the house because that is their purpose. The chairs need to be moved by your young one in order for them to get on and off the chairs and pull them from under the table and push them back in under the table. Some parents have found that the chairs are slightly too tall for some smaller toddlers and those toddlers struggle to get on and off the chairs, and because the chairs are so lightweight, those struggling toddlers have tipped the chairs and fallen, so if you have a small toddler who is slightly too short for the chair keep a watchful eye out while they are playing to determine if they need help getting on and off the chairs.
