We inherited this from a friend whose children had outgrown it and after several years of wear and tear and no doubt abuse, it still looks as good as new. It is made from brightly coloured plastic, yellow, red and green and is a table with a bench either side attached. It seats up to four children up to the age of five. My daughter is already using it at 18 months so she'll use it for a while yet. There are no sharp edges so it is very safe. It is very durable and can be used either inside or outside. My daughter thinks she is just like mummy and daddy with her own patio set. You can still buy this desk from Argos priced at £19.99. I am quite sure that my daughter is going to get plenty of use out of it this summer, (weather permitting) and she'll use it for a couple of years after that. I think that this is a good investment for only £19.99 as it can also be used indoors as a desk at the end of the summer.
For Christmas last year we bought our kids a Smoby table, made out of Yellow (table top), Green (legs) and Red (seat) plastic, it is very useful for all types of activities, painting, drawing, colouring and of course eating, it is wipe cleanable. We use it both inside and outside and sometimes it just left out in all weathers. All the fittings are made out of plastic, so nothing can go rusty. My eldest is slightly too big for it, but the other two love using it and does she if truth be known. It is not to heavy, and it sits four kids quite comfortable. We have a problem with plate slipping on the flat surface, but it is easily rectified using a piece of kitchen roll. The table has rounded edges no sharp points, and it can stand up to toddlers standing on the table, but I would hope older ones wouldn’t any way.
