Durable Toddler-Friendly Furniture with Style
The challenge of many new parents is to find furniture that is easy to clean and does not have any sharp corners for the toddlers to fall on or overexcited preschoolers to run into. The traditional coffee tables with sharp corners at just the right level have sent many children into the doctor’s office to get stitches on their foreheads. Fortunately Land of Nod has an amazing Round Coffee Storage Play Table.
It’s a coffee table that doubles as a play table. Wait, no, it’s a play table that doubles as a coffee table. Wait, let’s see. It has a contemporary, circular design, ultra large drawers for storage and a solid bentwood construction. Plus, it’s stained in a versatile java shade. So, is it a coffee table or a play table? Who’s to say?
Regardless of what it is I wish I found this design earlier instead of going completely without a coffee table until the kids grew out of that awkward bumping into the furniture stage. Those large drawers are amazing for hiding all the miscellaneous toys and blankets, especially when your house looks like a mess and grandparents are coming over to visit.
A perfect compromise of style, functionality and safety this table would look great in a living room, family room, den or playroom. It will last for years, for parents and children to enjoy together.
