Are you looking for creative kid’s play furniture ideas for your young kids? In this article, we are compiling a list of interesting furniture ideas for toddlers, preschoolers, and even grade-schoolers.
While safety is the utmost priority, there are also a few considerations before buying any furniture for kids. If space is a concern, prioritize easy storage, multi-purposes, and reusability of the furniture.
Furthermore, they grow up fast so you have to consider the lifespan of their furniture. How many years (or months) will they use it? How do you get rid of it later? How about reusing it for other purposes?
Therefore, we are curating a list of creative yet practical kid’s play furniture ideas here. From role-playing to creative toy storage, find out what’s best for you and your kids.
Do take note that some of the furniture is either expensive or not easily available off the shelf. Alternatively, you can always do it yourself, or buy (from IKEA) and makeover.
Kids Sand & Water Play Table
This is a great play table idea with two sections for sand, water, Play-Doh, etc. – without you worrying too much about the mess after. It is practical too with the tabletop for other usages.
Kids Shopping Cart
Every kid loves the shopping cart be it the real one or a pushable toy as they like shopping and pushing things around. It can be reused as a storage space too if you get a nice wooden trolley.
Kids Grocery Stand
Selling stuffs is one of the kid’s favourite role-playing acts. Elevate the experience to another level with this grocery stand if you have big enough space at home. Don’t forget the cash register!
Kids Play Kitchen Set
Yes, another role-playing act especially for girls. Believe it or not, this Paris cafe inspired play kitchen is a makeover from an IKEA set! This is great if you can’t find what you want off the shelf.
Kids Foldable Play Tent
This is not really for camping but kids would love to have their own territory and probably me-time? Get a foldable one so that you can store it easily unless you have an abundance of space at home.
Kids 2-in-1 Lego Play Table
There are quite a couple of Lego play tables around but this is probably the best we have seen. Besides the storage, reverse the tabletop and voila! It can be used as a normal table – 2-in-1 solutions!
Kids Lego Mini Figures Display Shelf
While there are official Lego display frames around, they can be pricey and might not be what you want exactly. How about DIY? A glass window is great to keep the dust away from the mini-figures.
Kids Toy Cars Display Shelf
Another toys display shelf but this time it’s for the cars, the surface designed with parking slots is cool for your kid to park his cars nicely. If you can’t get this off the shelf, how about DIY it?
Kids The Zoo Toy Storage
If you have plushies all over your place, this is a super creative storage solution to keep them in check! Your children can easily store and retrieve their plush toys from the overcrowded zoo.
Kids Wooden Art Easel
If you have a little artist at home, unleash his/her creativity with an elegant-looking art easel. One side of the easel is a chalkboard, the reverse is a whiteboard, and there’s a slot up top for a paper roll.
