Is your child fond of making herself beautiful and would she like to experiment with make-up, or paint nails just like her mom does?

There are many dressing tables on the market, but most are not suitable for children because they are too high or may have sharp edges. Or they look too dull with just a mirror and a few drawers.

To buy one that they continue to like and is durable enough I recommend this VidaXL make-up table with a fairly neutral look, sturdy wood and possibly easy to paint over, they could eventually go in a different direction with their room (which will certainly happen one day!).

I decided to create this buying guide with the best kids dressing tables and comprehensive information on what to look for when buying one.

Kids Dressing Table Buying Guide

Some dressing tables have drawers and cupboards, so you can store more things in them. A dressing table gives the room in which it is located a unique look.

A cute dressing table can be part of various role-playing games, where a girl can play a princess or even a beauty salon client.

There are a number of things that you should take into account if you want to purchase a dressing table for your child.

We will give you some useful tips in the next section.

Which material are you going for?

As we have already indicated, dressing tables are usually made of wood or plastic.

Dressing tables can look very nice, but are made of poor material.

You don't want that; you want to purchase a dressing table that is beautiful and lasts a long time and is not easily damaged.

So before you buy a dressing table, take a good look at the material, its strength and whether it is one that your child will enjoy for a long time.

Finally, it might be useful to check how easy it is to keep the dressing table clean.

In general, there are dressing tables made of wood and plastic.

To wooden toys simply wood, sometimes glue, screws and water-based paint is needed.

There is a lot more to the production of plastic or plastic toys.

Wooden toys not only last a very long time, the production of wood is usually much more sustainable than plastic.

Take the rubber tree for example, it stops producing rubber after 15 years.

Instead of burning it as was done in the past, the tree is now used to make wooden toys.

Plastic also usually breaks down faster than wood, but some find it easier to clean and less dangerous because it is lighter in weight.

It is mainly a personal choice, although I myself tend more towards wood for older children to have a dressing table as a piece of furniture for the room.

Storage space

Of course you buy a dressing table mainly because your little one would like it.

But in order not to make it a messy intention, it is useful if the dressing table also offers enough storage space for your child's things.

Consider how many things your child has that will be using on the dressing table.

Is your child very fanatic about making up with himself, and will he spend a lot of time at the dressing table?

It might be useful to get a dressing table that has many drawers and cupboards (and of course a nice, large mirror!).

If a dressing table has a lot of storage space in the form of drawers and cabinets, the dressing table itself can be a bit smaller in size.

This way it takes up little space, but you still have enough space for storing your child's things. Because tidy is neat!

With mirror

A dressing table is not really a dressing table without a mirror.

That's what makes a dressing table so much fun: all care items in one place where your child can immediately make themselves up or take care of themselves thanks to the mirror.

Your child does not have to lug around with things, because that can become quite a mess.

Perhaps you and your child can enjoy the dressing table together!

Also check whether the mirror on the dressing table that you have in mind is of good quality.

Can you see yourself well in the mirror? Is it robust, and does it not immediately break with every bump?

It should be a fun product for your child, but safety comes first!

Dimensions

You will probably already have in mind where you will put the dressing table for your child. It is a matter of fitting and measuring.

Do you place it in your child's room, or do you prefer something more central? Or maybe in the playroom?

So don't forget to look at the dimensions of the dressing table, and whether it actually fits in the space you had in mind.

It may be helpful to measure the space and then look for a dressing table that fits within those measurements.

That way you can never be wrong and you avoid disappointments. Your child will not be happy if the dressing table has to be returned immediately!

Color

Finally, your child may prefer a certain color.

Maybe pink, maybe blue or maybe chic white? In that case you must of course also take this into account.

After all, the dressing table is for your child, who should be able to enjoy it as much as possible!

There are currently only 6 reviews of this Howa, but all very positive with a 4.8 average, mainly because of the sturdiness and good wooden finish.

As one customer says:

The dressing table is sturdy and beautifully finished. The accompanying jars are unique.

Another customer adds that playing with the wooden pots is fun, but that when their daughter gets older they have to replace these accessories with real nail polishes, so perhaps not a good addition for older children.

However, the dressing table is not suitable for children under the age of three, due to the small accessories.
