The IKEA DUNDRA play table: we have tested it
We have tested the play table from the Swede and summarised our experiences and all the information about the DUNDRA children's table for you.
The first impression
When we bought the table, we quickly noticed that the packages were a lot heavier than some other pieces of IKEA furniture - but that usually speaks for the stability of the furniture. However, the assembly is quite simple. We did have a brief lapse at drawer, as we were not yet familiar with the plug-in system, but when we looked at the instructions again, our mistake was quickly rectified. What quickly caught our eye was the similarity to the popular play table classic from BRIO.
Comparison to BRIO play table
The look of the new IKEA play table is very reminiscent of the popular classic children's table from BRIO. BRIO's table is a little lower and the playing surface is a few centimetres wider than IKEA's play table. On the other hand, the latter has a drawer. On the other hand, the latter has a drawer that offers plenty of space for toys and thus makes organisation easier. In addition, the playing surface from the Swede is kept in plain grey, so it can either stay that way or be pimped out 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 play table from the Swede is a lot cheaper than the well-known classic.
IKEA DUNDRA functions
The DUNDRA table is specially designed for playing. The large surface gives the kids enough space to let off steam. The slightly raised edge prevents building blocks and co. from falling down. 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 organisation .
The table can be shown from all sides so that it can stand freely in the room. IKEA emphasises that the construction and the material are optimised so that the piece of furniture is ideally suited for public spaces such as restaurants, waiting rooms and the like. The surface of the IKEA DUNDRA is made of resistant laminate. We also noticed how stable and high-quality the table is during assembly.
