My son don't sit well with the type of chair we adult usually sit. I think the chair is a bit of too low for him. I am thinking of buying an new one for him.

I wonder if anyone knows an nice place to buy a kid's chair? He is 6 years old. Thanks.

Are you talking about your regular dining room or kitchen table? Or do you want a child's chair and table he can write, draw, etc. at? My grandchildren have an inexpensive folding table with child size chairs - they are 7 and 8

My grandmother had a similar chair to this when we were kids. We all used to love to sit in it at the "grown ups" table

If you want your son to sit at the dining room table but he's a little short I would suggest a booster or if he's already "too cool" for one then maybe a couple of seat cushions stacked on top of each would do the trick. You can buy those at Bed Bath and Beyond or similar stores.

If what you are looking for is more of a personal table for him that is child height then you can look in toy stores, Ikea, craft stores or even craigslist. On craigslist you can probably find a child table or even a coffee table that would work. My son's playroom table is an old coffee table we inherited when we bought our house, I really like it because it's bigger (not higher) than most children's tables so there is enough room for 6 seats.

Has the OP checked Craigslist under the children's section? Lots of folks get rid of their baby, children and youth furniture there. You might ieven post under "want to buy" and describe what you are seeking.

Have you done an online search? Even Costco has quite a selection of youth furniture. http://www.costco.com/Common/Categor...whse=BC&topnav=

You have your location as Chicago and there are a number of Costco stores in the Chicago area. Hope that helps!

Growing up every house on my block had one of those. We used it for sitting, climbing up to reach the top shelf. 1,000 uses.

Thank you guys for all your input! I am looking for the chair surrounding dinning table. I guess icibiu's idea of using cushion might work. By doing this way, I don't need to continue to buy chairs for him while he grow up every 3 months.

Happy New Year!
