Ikea Mammut Children's Table
Advantages: Nice shape, range of colours, sturdy
After the disaster which was the chair to match this table (see review), I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this table. The table was £24.99 and came in three colours - light blue, light pink and light green. At first glance, I thought the table was made out of wood but it is actually made out of polypropylene plastic. I did think at the time £24.99 was a little steep for a plastic table but I knew my daughter would enjoy using it to do different activities and on the bigger plus side, it would keep Play Doh and Moon Sand off of the carpet.
When you collect the table from Ikea, it is in the bit where all the flat packed boxes are kept. It wasn't overly heavy either.
It was pretty simple to put together and when it is built the table is 85cm in diameter and 48cm high. The table does not require any screws or hammering. It is just a case of twisiting the legs into place. What I really like about this table is that it has 5 legs and it makes it so sturdy. it stands as though it is rock solid. The legs are very chunky and it helps make it stand safely. It is pretty bit and this makes storage a bit problamtic if you prefer to store your kids tables away but the only other thing you could do is take it apart each time and that would just be a nightmare. You can see the size of it when you are in Ikea and you can judge there and then if it is too big for you.
My daughter is messy when it comes to arts and crafts and just generally with stuff that can end up on the carpet. The first time she used this table, there was glue, glitter, paint, play-doh - you name it, she had it stuck on there. But yet all it took was a simple cloth and some water and it wiped away clean without a problem, leaving no evidence that the mess had ever been there. Perfect!
My daughter abosolutely loves this table. She uses it all the time and it was definately money well spent though I would avoid buying the matching chairs for the table and you can see why in my review of those. I absolutely loved the design and shape of this table. It is sort of funky and cartoon like. My daughter says it is something that looks like it is out of The Simpsons!
But I definately recommend this table and give it a 5 star rating.
