The holes are on the bench part and on the pegboard. With the plastic workbench we had, the kids would spend 30 minutes at a time screwing and hammering things into the bench part.

I've thought about purchasing wooden screws and bolts from Amazon, but I have a good feeling my group would just take them to the preschool table instead of the workbench. I don't know, maybe it's because the workbench is in the corner.

They used to play with my cheap plastic workbench a lot, so it is somewhat disappointing. I wish Ikea sold wooden tools and screws to fit the workbench holes.

I bought that at a garage sale years ago, had it in my basement for my kids for about 4 years (not daycare kids) and it was still like brand new when I sold it at a garage sale this summer.... and I got $10 for it too.

DCMom Love these!

I have many ikea purchases in my home and daycare (only 15min from my house) from storage items to decor to toys to textiles and furnishings. I have never been disappointed in anything I have purchased.

At those prices, I would take the chance. I may have to go shopping myself

countrymom I went over to ikea this weekend, I remember touching the kitchen set and thinking how cute. the faucet didn't look sturdy but everything else did. And the sink comes out. I don't recall seeing the tool bench, but now that I look at it, I think I'm going to get it. I have a little tykes one, but the way its done is that you have to play with it on both sides (and I keep it pushed against the wall) but I like the fact that you can buy a big bin to store all the tools in, this is big plus for me. This is one of those toys that gets played with alot too.

I looked at this table but "I" couldn't fit at the table so I bought the green round one, and I have the stools so now I fit, and it fits 5 toddlers with no problem.

DBug Has anyone got either the workbench or kitchen from Ikea? I'm slowly getting rid of plastic in the playroom, and I really like the look of both of these (and the price is right!).

BUT, are they sturdy enough for 5 toddlers to play with day in and day out?
