The Best Toddler Table and Chair Sets

If there's one thing that toddlers love, it's a table that's exactly the right size for them. Think a miniature version of Mom or Dad's, where they can play independently, practice valuable life skills and easily reach what they need. Water tables and mud kitchens are great options for the outdoors, but inside, you'll want something more simple and streamlined that can be used for a variety of activities. (Mealtime? Arts and crafts? Tea parties? Check, check and check.)

To help you find the perfect arrangement for your little one and your home, we've rounded up the best activity, weaning and play tables on the market right now. Keep scrolling to see those and get our tips for choosing the best toddler table and chairs for your pint-sized family members.

What to Look for in Toddler Table Sets

SIZE: As we've said before, the best toddler tables are about waist-high; this will allow your child to reach their utensils and toys whether they're standing or sitting down. Consider, too, how many kids will use the table at once. Do you have multiple littles? Host play dates on a regular basis? If so, you might need something long and rectangular, so everyone can fit comfortably.

MATERIAL: Toddler tables are practically guaranteed to experience some wear and tear. (Think crumbs, spills, scratches, the occasional brush with a crayon or marker, etc.) So you'll want to opt for a surface that's sturdy, easy to clean and — since your family will likely be looking at it every day — aesthetically pleasing. Solid wood tables are built to last and will blend beautifully into their environment, but they're also more of an investment. Plastic tables, on the other hand, are typically cheaper but more wobbly and noticeable.

STORAGE: Toddler tables can, understandably, be magnets for clutter. So the best designs get ahead of the mess with integrated drawers, bins and other storage compartments.

Best Overall Toddler Table Set

$99.99

In terms of price and design, you can't beat the Costzon Kids' Activity Table Set With Storage. The entire unit is crafted from sturdy MDF and nests together for a neat and tidy aesthetic. Meanwhile, the removable tabletop can act as a chalkboard or flip to the other side and enjoy a clean surface for eating, reading or playing. Underneath the tabletop and below each chair, you'll find a storage compartment for extra toys. All for $100!

Best Value Toddler Table Set

$53.99 $39

This simple wooden activity table has over 12,000 positive reviews on Amazon for a reason; it's adorable and an amazing value at under $40. What's more, it's outfitted with thoughtful design features, like a low top that helps keep puzzle pieces and crayons off the floor and a finish that can be wiped clean with a dry cloth. It's also available in four colors.

Best Plastic Toddler Table Set

$57.44

If you're looking for an activity table that's budget-friendly and as cute as can be, then we suggest you snag the Humble Crew Kids' Vibrant 4-Piece Table Set. For just $57, you'll receive a table and four chairs all made from certified BPA- and phthalate-free molded plastic. Each piece comes with simple, snap-together parts, too, so your kiddo can get right to playing. Best of all? The entire set is easy to wipe down.

Best Wood Toddler Table Set

Now this is an activity table that will grow with your child. Crafted from a combination of gumwood, eucalyptus, MDF and acacia veneer, this set is both sturdy and visually stunning. You can purchase the table individually or with two matching midcentury chairs, and choose between a timeless walnut or classic white finish.

Best Round Toddler Table Set

$80.27

A clever design makes all the difference. Give your child a flat surface for snacking, scribbling, stacking and more as well as an easy way to tidy up after themselves with the KidKraft Wooden Round Toddler Table Set. The unit is made from sturdy wood and has a "secret" compartment that can hold a few toys. You can shop the set in two finishes as well to ensure that it complements your nursery or playroom.

Best Square Toddler Table Set

If you'd prefer a square silhouette, then you can't go wrong with The Play Table by Lalo x West Elm Kids. This award-winning design is crafted from solid beech wood with a durable laminate veneered top and features four gently rounded corners to prevent accidents. Meanwhile, the two bucket-style seats ensure that your child is comfortable whether it's mealtime or playtime.

Best Large Toddler Table Set

$215.55

With a long surface and six chairs, this toddler table set is ideal for larger families. Each piece is made from smooth plastic and features thoughtful design elements. For example, the table has gently rounded corners and adjustable legs, while the chairs stack neatly on top of each other. In turn, you can tailor the set exactly to your family's needs and still have some room to grow for playdates or birthday parties.

Best Style Toddler Table Set

Editor's Note: Chairs sold separately.

We dare you to find an activity table more stylish than this one. With its round top, natural finish and breezy blue-and-white embellishments, the Serena & Lily Kids' Riviera Rattan Play Table will make a radiant addition to any room in the house. (No need to put this baby in a corner; you can display her front and center.) The only catch? The matching chairs are sold separately.

Best Nesting Toddler Table Set

$199.95 $134.45

Enjoy an easy cleanup all around with the Guidecraft Nordic 5-Piece Toddler Table Set. Four stools pull out from underneath the wood table, allowing multiple little ones to play or craft together. Meanwhile, the simple Scandinavian design keeps the focus on their latest project. When they're all done for the day, you can quickly wipe down the main surface, stack the stools and nest everything together to minimize clutter in the playroom. This activity table set is available in three finishes.

Best Toddler Table Set for Storage

The only thing more convenient than a nesting activity table? A nesting activity table with storage compartments. Although this five-piece unit from Crate & Kids is definitely more of a splurge, it will help corral the playroom chaos and give you so much peace of mind. The activity table and stools are crafted from solid birch, and each stool has a large cubby for balls, books, stuffed animals, etc. It can seat four children at once.

Best Toddler Table Set for Small Spaces

$119.99

They don't get much more compact than this. With its bistro-sized surface and tapered legs, the Costzon Kids' Round Table and Chair Set is ideal for smaller spaces. The entire arrangement can fit neatly against the wall or tuck right into a corner while still offering ample functionality. The chairs boast ergonomic backrests and cushioned seats, too, to keep your little ones extra comfortable during real meals or imaginary tea parties.

Best Grow-With-Me Toddler Table Set

We love a long-term solution, and we have a feeling that you do, too. The Carolina Grow-With-You Activity Table starts out as a low, wide table that your toddler can use for art projects, train sets, games and puzzles. Then, when they're ready for a boost, you can attach the 24-inch legs and raise the table for sitting. There's plenty of room underneath the table, too, for a couple of storage bins. The piece is crafted from solid rubber wood and available in four finishes, from white to brushed fog.
