I have the rectangle table and stools from ikea- they do a round table but this takes up alot of space. Word of warning if you cannot decide between getting the stools or the little chairs with the back . The stools have to be sat on completely (no perching on the edge) if you have laminate flooring - many a mindee has had the stool disappear from underneath them when they havnt sat on the still properly - they tip very easily - this wouldn't happen with the chairs but obviously the will take up slightly more space.

I looked at the ones in Ikea yesterday and they are lovely.

ELC do a plastic table and chairs - I've had my original version over 20 years and it's still fine - Wilkinson's do a cheaper plastic one.

I have the round one from Ikea plus stools. It does take up more space than the rectangular one (which we have had for 9 1/2 yrs and its now in the play house) but it fits more children round it comfortably.

It cleans up well despite what we have done on it ie cooking, painting, sticking, eating etc.

We also take it out in the garden and this saves having a seperate table out there to store when not in use.

I'm the biggest Ikea fan!

I have a round table and 4 chairs which although takes up a lot of space - looks really welcoming and I've always found easy to keep clean.

I've also got a wooden table and chairs set (think it was about £10?!) from Ikea which I use for really messy play - although even that wipes nice and clean

Ikea all the way I say! (although I'm going to have a look at ELC from all your suggestions - this website is fantastic for ideas!)
