KidKraft makes some of my favorite products for kids. The company uses high-quality durable materials, so I always know its products will stand the test of time. Whenever I get a chance to test a new KidKraft product, like the Mid-Century Kid Toddler Table and 2 Chair Set, I expect it to live up to my high expectations for the brand. 

In testing, the Mid-Century Kid Toddler Table and 2 Chair Set easily met my standards. Assembly was fast and resulted in a table and chair set that is extremely sturdy and visually appealing. If that weren't enough, the table also has a built-in storage area so I can quickly sweep away any clutter. 

Whether you follow the Montessori method and are looking for a high-quality table to encourage independence or you just want something that doesn't clash with your décor, this mid-century kids' table set has it all. 

Design and assembly

KidKraft nailed the aesthetic of mid-century design, which is known for its clean lines and subtle curves. The oval table is made of natural-looking wood with a pop of color in the center. Kids can choose the blue or white side on a reversible oval lid that covers the mesh storage bin. 

The chairs also have rounded edges on both the seats and chair backs so there aren't any sharp corners. The chairs' seats are white while the chair and table legs continue the natural wood look. The white on the chairs complements the natural wood very well.

I was a bit hesitant to try an oval table, thinking it wouldn't fit neatly in our space. Surprisingly, it takes up less room than the square table my daughter had been using. The chairs on the Mid-Century Kid Toddler Table slide completely under the tabletop when not in use, saving even more space. The table measures 79 by 51 by 48 inches and the set weighs about 21 pounds in total. 

Assembling this compact table was very simple and took less than 15 minutes — even with my 2-year-old "helping." The table and chairs are mostly made of wood, but a few parts are plastic. All of the legs screw in, and to finish it off, each chair requires two screws that go in easily with the included Allen wrench. 

What it's like to use

It's called a toddler table, but the recommended age range is 3 to 6 years old, which leans more toward older toddlers and kids who have graduated from toddlerhood. The chairs are a tad big for younger or shorter toddlers. Their feet might not reach the ground, but that also means they have room to grow and will be able to enjoy the set for years.

My daughter is currently 33 inches tall, and she can easily get on and off the chairs independently, but her feet don't yet touch the ground when she's sitting. 

What makes it stand out

Show me a product that keeps my home organized and clutter-free and I'm all over it. While my daughter likes that she can store her art supplies or small toys in the center bin, I like that it's easy to clean whatever is on the table with a single arm swipe.

The storage area is a modest size. It won't fit larger toys, but it's ideal for smaller objects like crayons, markers, or blocks. I was able to fit about 70 Lego Duplo blocks in the storage area.

The cons

The set's smooth surfaces wipe down well, although there are quite a few nooks and crannies that could make cleaning major spills difficult. Because of the storage area in the middle, spills can find their way in there as well, which means you would also need to clean whatever is in the storage area. Craft materials like Play-Doh or glue can get stuck in the cracks of the center storage area as well. 

The bottom line

Kids, especially toddlers, revel in their own independence, which is why they enjoy having a table just their size. As a parent, it makes my life easier when I can set up a craft or snack for my daughter at her own table that she can use independently. I don't need to help her up or down, and it keeps any sticky messes off my dining room table.

Because big spills or messy crafts can find their way into the center bin, you might prefer the Melissa and Doug Wooden Table and 3 Chair Set ($130), which doesn't have storage in the center.

For parents who are looking for a table that matches the aesthetic of their home, the KidKraft Mid-Century Kid Toddler Table and 2 Chair Set should do the trick. It's both sturdier and more visually appealing than the plastic kids' tables I've tried. My toddler also gives it her stamp of approval, and I find her using her table in some capacity every day.

This teeny record player combines a retro aesthetic with modern technology

People love the nostalgia of a good old record player — but, for many, the disadvantages outweigh the benefits. To put it simply, record players take up a lot of space, meaning, if you live in a tiny, New York apartment, then the simple mass of it may not be feasible. Oh, and the idea of bringing it with you on-the-go? Nearly impossible.

With this in mind, RokBlok, the world’s smallest, wireless record player, was created. If this sounds familiar, then it might be because you saw the founder of the brand, Logan Riley, strike a deal with Robert Herjavec on ABC’s ‘Shark Tank.’

The RokBlok combines a vintage sound and aesthetic with the modern features of contemporary speakers. In the place of a bulky device, this rectangular box measures just 4 x 2 inches long, making it great for small spaces and on-the-go. Simply find a flat surface, place RokBlok on your record of choice, raise the control lever, and voila, you have your own record player without the hassle.

Plus, since the device is rechargeable, you can enjoy up to 4 hours of playtime on a single charge. You can even score, a heartier, louder sound, by connecting the RokBlok to any Bluetooth speaker that you already have. Woo!

If you want to learn more about RokBlok, then take a minute to watch this quick video from the brand. While it normally retails for $99, you can grab one today for only $89.99 (9% off).
