This little tikes picnic table is something that we love. My father made molds for little tikes toys so I have been around them since I was little, although we did not own many when I was a kid. As a mother of one son we have pretty much owned every little tikes toy that was/is made.
The picnic table is the easy store model (larger size, not toddler) and sets 6 kids comfortably. It has an indented middle area for cups, markers, etc so they do not roll if not sitting level. Personally I could do without that part and would prefer it flat but no big deal. It is nice for drinks.
My son is almost 5 and enjoys having picnics. We have had this since he was 1 and he was able to use it then also, just was a little tiny for it and his feet did not touch the ground. I too like to sit at it with him. I am on the smaller side so it does hold me, I have seen larger adults also sit on it but do not care for it nor recommend it.
It is super easy to clean with water and detergent or just take the hose to it. It stores flat if you would like to put it up for the winter, thus saving space. It also has a hole where an umbrella can go through which they do now sell seperately for $20. We enjoy this and have used it a ton. It also will hold up and will be resellable when we are done thus getting me some money back on it.
I am happy with the colors and the amount of fading, the tan and blue will not fade at all and red has only slight so far.
