Ikea Mammut Children's Chair
Advantages: Nice shape and color, well made, easy to clean
Disadvantages: A bit pricey
Anyone who has read my Mammut table review will know the reason I purchased the Mammut table and chairs was that my 2 year old son fell off an adult sized chair over Easter and nearly went through the big glass door in my living room and I decided to purchase a table and chairs that would be better suited to his size.
I bought two chairs at the same time as buying the table, the chairs cost me 10 pounds each and the table just under 25. So the entire set cost me just under forty five pounds. This compared to other children's table and chair sets I've seen seems to be a mid range price. The Ikea Mammut range also includes stools that could be used with the table (and were a fair bit cheaper) but they looked a little less sturdy and also were not available in colors that matched those of the table so would have to be mix and match colors.
The chairs came flat-packed, it is Ikea after all, but required very minimal assembly, it all slots together, although was definitely a two person job as one person needs to push one way with the seat while the other pushes in the opposite direction with the legs as they are quite a tight fit.
The chair is a nice shade of blue and the design although chunky is not so kiddie that it looks odd in my living room. It's very sturdy, I have read reviews where people have had the chair legs have fall off, I'm not sure that this is a product wide fault as I have not had this happen with either or the chairs I own. I would recommend checking them once assembled though just to make sure they are very stable and the legs aren't going to fall off on your particular chair as it could be quite dangerous if it were to happen while in use!
Like the table they are made entirely of plastic this makes them particularly durable and also fantastically easy to clean. They can simply be wiped over with a damp cloth and some soapy water. I have also used my mini steamer on one of the chairs when my son spilled something sticky into the groves where the backrest fits, with great results.
I would recommend this chair, it makes a great addition to any nursery or playroom as a set with the Mammut table or just on its own. My nephew who is only just 1 can sit on it fine (though his feet don't touch the floor) as can my tall 2 and a half year old so it will last a long time and not be quickly outgrown.
Summary: A nice children's chair, great as a set or on it's own.
