My sons were so excited when these were delivered! Until the newness wears off, dinnertime is easy for our family to handle. The kids stop playing and sit at the dinnertable so nicely. I'm afraid that will end in a couple days, but it was nice while it lasted. I have a secret though - I love these chairs more than they do! I had to wash the floor yesterday and all I had to do was stack 'em up (I have six chairs).
