Spending time in the great outdoors can truly benefit a young child’s physical and mental well-being. And setting up a special space — complete with a table and seating — for little ones to learn and play in your yard or on a porch or patio is an easy way to encourage little ones to spend time outside.

Kid-size table and chair sets come in as many variations as their adult counterparts. There are several things to consider when shopping for one, including: How much room do you have? Where do you plan to put it? How old are the primary users? What materials do you want it to be made out of?

Before purchasing your set, be sure to check the length, width and height of the furniture to ensure it will fit in the space you have in mind and is the right size for your child. For example, a table with a length, width and height of 19.5-by-16-by-15-inches may be too small for your growing 5-year-old. What the product is constructed from—wood, plastic, metal, and/or fabric—is also important; make sure the furniture is made from non-toxic materials that are safe for children.

The Kid's Outdoor Table & Chair Tips and Advice

  • Plastic sets with rounded corners are better for younger children, since their more likely to prevent injuries from scratching or bumping into the furniture.
  • Like adult variations, table and chair sets for children require assembly. If you’re seeking one that’s easier to manage, consider purchasing one with tool-less or snap-together assembly.
  • Kids’ tables and chairs sets often have weight-capacity limits and are not designed for adult use.
  • Sets with adjustable umbrellas or canopies, which can shade little ones from UV rays, are excellent for outdoor use.
