Good morning Neighbors,
Beautiful day here to meet At the Fence! I have a company to share today that is simply wonderful. Guidecraft has been around for years, providing quality educational toys and furnishings. Guidecraft was started in 1964, with 10 products in a small woodshop. Now, I have to admit, they have been around as long as I have. Mainly used by schools and such in the past, they are available to individuals now.
Guidecraft sent me a Noah's Ark Table and Chair Set. Shipping was quick and the set was well packaged. Now, as far as assembly goes, my 2 daughters 9 and 13 put it together so I could take pictures. Everything is labeled well, and it was easy to put together. I watched and instructed, and they did the work. All went well except we did put one chair leg on wrong and had to change it. (Our fault, not the directions) So yes, this is easy to assemble. It only required a philips head screwdriver.
The finished project is beautiful. The chair backs have an ark scene and the seats each have a pair of animals. One has lions and the other has deer. The table comes with a removable circle in the center (which also has an ark scene). When you remove the center there is a cloth bag attached underneath for storage. Each corner of the table has a pair of animals. (monkeys, lions, bears, leopards) My daughters love it!
The table and chairs are well made. They are sturdy and should last for years. It says ages 3+, but my nine-year old can sit in the chair with no problems. I would love to get more of this collection. They have several other pieces that match, a book display, step stool, rocking chair, toybox and a lamp. What an adorable theme for a young child's room.
Obviously this is not the only theme available, nor do they only carry furniture. They also carry blocks, art equipment, manipulatives, etc. You really need to stop by this website and check out their amazing line of products.
I am have included several pictures of us assembling the set and the finished product. To purchase this item visit their website and you can buy the set for $185. I love sharing this set At the Fence! Best news yet, they are going to allow one of you to win the Noah's Ark Table and Chairs through entering this giveaway. Great!!
