Yesterday I took my very first trip to Ikea. I had a lot of fun checking it out, but it was definitely overwhelming. I had scoped out their website beforehand and had pretty much decided what I wanted already, but I wanted to see it in person first to make sure the quality was acceptable. The main purpose of the trip was to pick up a few things for Baby T, but I’m already planning a return trip back to pick up some more things for the house.
Baby T has a new found love of climbing. His favorite thing to climb however is our kitchen table. He pulls himself onto a chair and then the table (and he can do this very quickly.) I decided to get him a children’s size table where he could eats snacks and play with toys. I didn’t want to spend too much on the table since he’ll outgrow it pretty quickly and Ikea had just the thing…the Sundvik table and matching chairs:
How cute is that little train set as well? I was really impressed with the quality and price of their toys! The Lillabo train set was only $9.99 and has 20 pieces (the picture does not include the bridge and 4 additional curvy pieces.) I also got him some of the Duktig kitchen accessories to go with his play kitchen he got for Christmas. In addition, I also picked up a few small wooden toys, the drawing paper roll, and the Busa play tunnel. I probably went a bit overboard, but I could not get over the prices!
Here’s what the children’s table looks like next to our full-sized black kitchen table:
