The IKEA DUNDRA play table: we have tested it

We have tested the Swedish company's play table and summarised our experiences and all the information about the DUNDRA children's table for you.

The first impression

When we bought it, we quickly noticed that the packages were a lot heavier than some other pieces of furniture from IKEA - but that usually speaks in favour of the stability of the furniture. However, the assembly is quite simple. We did have a brief glitch with the drawer as we weren't familiar with the plug-in system, but when we took another close look at the instructions, our mistake was quickly rectified. What quickly caught our eye was the similarity to the popular play table classic from BRIO.

Comparison with the BRIO play table

The new IKEA play table looks very similar to the popular classic children's table from BRIO. The BRIO table is slightly lower and the playing surface is a few centimetres wider than the play table from IKEA. However, the latter has a drawer that offers plenty of space for toys and therefore makes organisation easier to use. In addition, the playing surface from Sweden is kept in plain grey so that it can either remain as it is or be pimped up with different foils depending on the child's interests. With the BRIO table, only table tops that already contain a play world can be purchased. The biggest difference is the price. The Swedish company's play table is a lot cheaper than the well-known classic.

IKEA DUNDRA functions

The DUNDRA table is specially designed for playing. The large surface gives kids plenty of space to let off steam. The slightly raised edge prevents building blocks and the like from falling off. After playing, the toys, Lego or craft materials can be stored in the large drawer. This is divided into 2 compartments to make it easier to organisation
The table can be presented from all sides so that it can stand freely in the room. IKEA emphasises that the design and material have been optimised so that the piece of furniture is ideal for public spaces such as restaurants, waiting rooms and the like. The surface of the IKEA DUNDRA is made of hard-wearing laminate. We also noticed how stable and high-quality the table is during assembly.
