We bought this for our 16 month old daughter to eat her meals at. She has been learning to sit at a table at nursery and we wanted to continue to develop this at home. She can also sit there to draw and play and in future can do homework, etc as it should last well. It is of a size that it will last for a few years and is very good quality. It is solid wood and very easy to assemble with an Allen key in 5 minutes. Would definitely recommend.
