We purchased this desk/chair set for our 5 and 3 year-old grandsons. The set appears to be sturdy and assembly was easy. The boys love having the cubbies to store their things in. After having looked at similar items in stores and seeing how beat up the top can get I purchased a heavy sheet of clear vinyl that I attached with hook and loop dots in the four corners. With the addition of the vinyl they can showcase their artwork, spill things, use play-dough, etc without worries. Would definitely recommend this set.

This table and chairs set is the perfect size for my two year old. It arrived quickly and was very easy to assemble. We were missing two screws but a quick email to the friendly overstock customer service group and the screws were sent to us immediately. You can't beat this set for the price. Looks great in my house.

I bought this set for my grandson when he was 18 months old. He loves it! He keeps his crayons, play dough, etc, in baskets we bought to slide on the shelves under the table. It was a little big for him when we first got it, but he is quickly growing into it. This set is a little bigger than most, with the size being more like what you would find in a kindergarten class vs preschool class. It's very sturdy, well built and should last him a long time.
My handy husband put this together while I was at work, he did glue all the joints even though it's not part of the directions, just something he does as a precaution with most of the "some assembly required" furniture we buy. He also clamped one of the chairs for an overnight, again a precaution! The chairs hold an adult very helpful at "tea time" I haven't given it the Play-Dough test yet, but the finish appears to be able to stand up to a two-year olds activities!
Saw another set I liked much better but it was too late to buy. It was better quality than this one. This one had weird streaks in the finish and my husband had to find screws to fit the chairs as some were missing in the box. Kind of cheap, really.
My husband screwed all four screws in partially for the chairs then went back and tightened each screw securely. He says this is how one avoids a scenario where it seems like the holes are improperly aligned. He used a drill and was literally done with both table and chairs in 20 minutes. Perfect for five-year-old.
