Before buying your toddler furniture, do consider some of the following practical and safety measures:
Stability - to prevent tipping over, a wider based and sturdy item (eg. high chair) will be more stable. Test to make sure that is very difficult to tip over.
No sharp edges - be sure the underside and the area surrounding your furniture is free from rough or sharp edges. For wooden items, make sure that there are no splinters that are exposed.
Adjustable - it is best that the kids furniture is adjustable considering the fact that your child grows up fast and you would want to keep the furniture for a longer period. This is especially true for bedroom furniture or bedding sets which is not only costly but bulky and you would want to make sure that it is still usable for years to come.
Easy to clean - You'll want easy to wipe surfaces, in anticipation of your baby or toddler which will most likely be playing, spitting and throwing food in every crack of the furniture he or she can reach. For furniture made of fabric, make sure it has removable fabric that can be easily cleaned.
Safety Straps and Guardrails - this is needed for baby high chair, bed or changing table to prevent baby or toddler from slipping off.
Storage - a furniture that is foldable or collapsible will make storage easier when it is not in use. However, do make sure that child safety features are in place when it is in use.
Ease of Use - must be easy to set up and take down.
