This may seem like a silly post for you to read. I mean who wouldn’t be in love with Little Tikes after just one look at this fantastic kids picnic table? It’s pretty impressive. And pretty self explanatory. If you have kids, I bet having a kids picnic table is the envy of your heart. Can you image how many fun things you can accomplish with a kids picnic table? Just think of the kids parties, art projects and obviously picnics! Owning our own Little Tikes kids picnic table is a dream come true for our family.
How to Find the best kids picnic table for your Family
Yes, I have always wanted a Little Tikes kids picnic table. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to a friend’s house and seen one of these and felt that ugly green monster of envy grow in my heart. Silly right? It’s just a kids Picnic table. But it’s one of those childhood toys that I always wanted but never got. And sadly for our older boys it was never in the budget to get one. Especially with all the moving and tiny apartment living spaces. We just couldn’t do it.
But now we live in a larger home. And although money is still tight, it is something that was able to happen. Especially since they are having an awesome sale on select kids picnic tables at Little Tikes!
Now when it comes to picking out the best kids picnic table for your family you need to consider a few features.
- How much room do you have to store the picnic table?
- How many kids can the picnic table seat?
- What is the weight limit of the table?
- Does the table compact down for easy storage?
- Does the table compact down for easy moving?
- Does the table offer the option for a shade umbrella?
- How durable is the table?
Like I said, just a few things to consider. That’s why I love Little Tikes. They think of everything! And they are also a brand that I know to be high quality through years of owning their toys. I’ve not yet had a Little Tikes toy break on me. And they went through two rough boys and one baby girl. And are still going strong after 9 years! Why wouldn’t I turn to a brand I know to be high quality and understand kid’s needs?
Little TIkes has a lot of fun picnic tables you can enjoy with your family. They have smaller ones for smaller kids. And then they have the Endless Adventures® Easy Store™ Table. This is the one I had my heart set on. It is great for kids ages 2 to 8! Perfect! That is a good range of years that this picnic table will be used!
It also can seat up to 6 kids! That is definitely a huge bonus. Sure we only have three kids, but we often have Bar-B-Qs with friends who have kids that need a place to sit. This table is perfect to help ensure everyone has a place to sit.
You can use this portable picnic table as a craft table, art table, game table or snack table. And for my homeschooling friends, it would make an amazing homeschooling table for your smallest ones! Oh, even better, the play-dough table! I hate having play dough on my regular table. It always gets into the cracks that I can’t get out. But this is awesome because of how easy it is to clean!
The Little Tikes kids picnic table also features awesome cup holders that are perfect for the kid’s drink or maybe the mugs holding the crayons or pencils for the art project. It also features a center hole that can hold a Little Tikes Market Umbrella (sold separately).
As if all of that wasn’t enough, this Little Tikes kids picnic table also folds completely flat for easy storage and easy moving! This is huge as we have a move coming up in a few months. It is very important that things can be compacted to little space. But I also love it because it makes it really easy for when we need to just store it out of the way for a little while.
Then you add to it that it is super easy to set up and take down. No really, read my words….SO….EASY! And no tools required. LOVE IT! I hate searching for tools. And you don’t need them with this kids picnic table.
Now we know that nothing is ever 100% perfect without a small flaw or two. Now that all the sunshine and rose are on the table, let me tell you the flaws.
- The Table didn’t include any instructions, so it took me a few minutes to figure out how to set up the table, as it arrived in the compact position.
- It doesn’t come with the Umbrella. Sure the umbrella isn’t very expensive and I can purchase it separately, but I wish it came with this picnic table
- The first time setting up the table, it took some force to get the braces into the correct slots and stay put while I worked on setting the other side up. But it still only took me about 8 minutes to get it set up the first time.
- As far as kids picnic tables go, the price is right in the common range. But still a little on the higher end of what I would prefer to pay for a kids product.
Our Little Tikes Endless Adventures Easy Store kids picnic table has seen a lot of action the last few weeks! We hosted a fun High Tea Party, we have had multiple picnics, it’s been an art table, it has been a dessert table, it has been the kids table for a fireworks show. It seriously gets used every few days.
It is the perfect size for our little girl and all the neighbor kids love to sit at it when we have them over. My lifelong childish dream of owning a kids picnic table is now complete and I’m not disappointed one bit! I love our kids picnic table and am so happy we finally have one! Oh, and the kids like it too. But really…it’s all about me. Ha!
The Little Tikes Endless Adventures Easy Store kids picnic table can be purchased on Little Tikes online.
