We gave our girls an early Christmas gift this year--a new play table and chair set from Anka. We take play time pretty seriously at our house so I needed a table that was sturdy, kid-friendly and of course I wanted it to be good-looking too. After checking out all the contemporary options, I picked the Anka 5-piece set.
I ordered the set from Scandinavian Child (the US distributor) a few weeks ago. The set arrived flat-packed--which is the green way to ship--so I set aside a morning for assembly. Everything was clearly labeled and the instructions were easy to follow. All in, I spent under and hour installing the 50+ screws that hold the set together (there is also some wood glue involved--also included). The was one dastardly screw that would not go in the designated slot--otherwise a painless process. You can check out the finished project in my little video review--pretty swank.
When the girls got a look at the new set they were thrilled. The extra chairs allow for group play and for mom to join in the fun. I picked the Espresso color since it will hide markers and pens--but the natural color is also gorgeous. Momtrends gives the official seal of approval.
The set is crafted of high-quality birch wood, and includes a table, three chairs and one stool all in a classic, clean Scandinavian design. Available in Natural ($200.00), Honey ($225.00) and Espresso ($225.00) finishes.
