Seat Yourself


Finding a special place for your child to do homework and giggle over juice boxes with equal ease can be tough. Better just table the issue.

Specifically, with Iglooplay’s craft/work table and chairs.

Brooklyn-based designer and mom Lisa Albin created the modern, sculptural furniture set as a be-all, do-all for active tots. Crafted from sustainable wood, it fits up to six kids. Customize it as you wish: Table legs come in green or with a cherry stain; chairs can be painted green or orange with maple-leaf graphics (or not at all). Tack on a handy accessories tray to keep stray loot in order.

You’ve got to seat it to believe it.

Available at Mini Jake, 178 North 9th Street, between Bedford and Driggs Avenues, Williamsburg (718-782-2005 or minijake.com).
