Looking for a good table/chair set for my 16 month old

Does anyone have suggestions for a good table and chair set for a young toddler? My son is 16 months old and he likes to play with and sit on the tables at the library, so I thought I would get him his own set for Christmas. We need it to be study enough if he ever gets rough with them (kids can be tough on their things!) Got any suggestions?

  • every time I go to Toys 'R' Us they have this really nice mini wooden set...or there are some thick plastic ones that would be sturdy enough for him :) I'd try there

  • I recommend anything from Step 2. They aren't the prettiest things, but everything we have from them has held up nicely though two very rough boys. They have a few desk options, but I recommend getting the naturally playful picnic table, especially if she has other children over very often. It seats 6 children and can be used for everything from arts and crafts to snacks.

  • Ikea, $20! The Montessori school we're going to bought the $20 Ikea sets and sawed off the bottom of the legs to make them extra short, they are perfect and very sturdy.

  • We bought ours at Ikea. Then we don't worry too much about the crayon and such that gets all over it! It's really sturdy. We did a mix and match thing.  Here's what we got:

    Chair and table

    They have lots of different colors in these!

  • Thanks! Yeah, I was looking at the Ikea stuff online, but I wasn't sure how sturdy those legs look - do the Ikea children's chair hold up? The Lack side table is a great idea - we actually have the coffee and end tables right now in our living room. :) I'll have to check out Toys R Us also and Step 2 (maybe for some ourdoor fun when summer comes). Thanks ladies!
