It’s not that you mind washable paint getting all over your kitchen table—and, oops, chairs—but setting up a dedicated spot that’s just for your toddler or preschooler to create is not just Montessori-approved, it helps us feel more organized as parents. (Um, the forever goal.)
Still, it’s tough to find a table that’s not just durable, it’s chic—and sturdy enough to handle all that your kid throws at it. (Anyone else’s toddler love tipping the chairs over just to see how they fall? Just mine? Great.)
Enter the Play Table and Play Chairs from Lalo, which up until recently have had a 2,000-person waitlist and sold out four times since their launch last year. Given that fanfare, I was curious what all the hubbub was about. I’ve tried other toddler tables and, based on that experience, felt they were pretty predictable in terms of what you can expect. That is, until I tried Lalo. Here’s what makes this table-and-chair set really shine.
