Our playroom is a work in progress.It has been formed from the randomness that was in my kids rooms before, it is a mess of the toys and random storage bins that we had in their rooms previously. The plan was to take the kids toys out of their rooms and have a playroom so the mess that was seen was minimized and the kids had a space of their own to play with out the worry of me telling them to “clean up” so we could walk through their rooms. The playroom idea works great in our house because I can shut the door ignore the mess and be on my way not even knowing it exists but at the same time some organization is needed for the kids sake and it needs to be easily done for them.
Toys R Us has some great furniture for kids playrooms that help with organization, style and functionality that is needed in a playroom. We were sent a toy bin and matching table set to review. The toy bin is a catch all, which is what I wanted for the kids in the playroom. I wanted them to be able to have a place for all their toys that they knew where they belong but were easy for them to do themselves. I don’t expect the playroom to be clean, and more times then not you would think that a tornado went through there, but I do expect them to pick up when I need to get down there to clean the floors. The toy bin is perfect for that, they have certain bins for certain toys that they know where they go and clean up is super quick because they can just toss everything in the bin it belongs in.
Our playroom is set up in some what sections, we have the kitchen area, the school area, the baby area and then and open space area for them to play. We needed something that could fit with in the room and be used as their kitchen table and also as the school table (since my oldest loves playing teacher) and we wanted it to blend in nicely. The Toys R Us wooden table fits our needs perfectly. It matches the toy bin which brings in a nice look to the playroom furniture and it is the perfect size for the kids.
Both the table and the toy bin came in boxes that you had to assemble. Of course I gave hubby that job and then waited a little bit to check them out. It only took him 30 minutes total to put them both together. He said it was super easy and since I didn’t have to do the manual labor I agree the assembly was simple 😉
The quality is great, it is wood and solid wood at that. The paint on the chairs is bright colored and not flaky and cheap looking nor feeling. I have looked at kids tables and many times I have found them to be flimsy and cheaply made, and I am very happy that this piece is a solid set. I am very happy with the quality of the table and the toy bin, from the looks, the colors, the functionality and the quality. It is perfect for the kids playroom. And for anyone who is wondering what happens when your kids stand on the chairs (if you have looked at any of the cheaply built table sets out there you know why I am even bringing this up), don’t worry the chairs are solid and do not bend or break if the kids stand on them 🙂
If you have been following the past few weeks you also know that we are working on a painting project, and soon this playroom will have the colors and theme that I have wanted for my kids for a very long time and the bright colors of the toy bin and the table I think will fit in perfectly!
