Table and Chair Size

Your child's wooden table and chairs should be proportional to your child's size. This will keep your child comfortable, while aiding in posture. Many companies put the estimated age, weight and height of the child on the box or product fact sheet. However, there are some general guidelines to follow. For example, a one-year-old should have a chair seat that is 5 inches in height, while a two- year-old should have an 8-inch high chair seat, a three-year-old should have a 10-inch high chair seat and a five-year-old should have a 12-inch high chair seat. Tabletops should be about 8 inches above the chair seat.


There are many different styles for children's wooden tables and chairs. They can come in many colours, shapes, patterns and designs. Choose the style of your child's wooden table and chairs based on the child's personality. If the child loves animals, you could get him a table shaped like an animal or with an animal picture on it. You might also choose the style based on your child's current room decor Choose the table and chairs in a certain colour or design so that it matches the room. You might also choose a simple classic wooden colour or design for the elegance of the traditional look.

Build Your Own

Many people buy table and chair kits that require assembly. These can range from simple to complex. Consider your own assembly skills before choosing to purchase this type of item. If the design is simple, the only skills you need are the ability to follow instructions and how to use a screwdriver. Some people may choose to build their own wooden table and chairs from scratch. Such a project would require some construction skills.

Price and Quality

The cost of a child's wooden table and chairs can range anywhere from $20 to hundreds of dollars, depending on the brand or quality. You can purchase high-quality wooden tables and chairs for lower prices if you buy them used from online shopping websites or local flea markets.
