Default Kaplan Child-Sized Furniture

Does anyone own Kaplan brand of child-sized furniture? I want to know what works best for 3-5 year olds. All the photos on the website show 1-2 year olds fitting comfortably but I want it for preschool age children and was hoping to get input before ordering any if I do!

Please attach a link, if you can find it, to what you have for a couch or chair for your preschoolers. Any pro's/con's about it. If you can attach a photo or you can message me for my number to text me! Thanks so much!

Here is an example of what I'm looking at purchasing:

I have the couch which I purchased back when grants were available. It is great for 2 preschoolers or possibly 3 toddlers.

I have had this Brand New World one on my wishlist for a while, just haven't pulled the trigger on ordering. It looks almost the same as the one you posted. They (Brand New World) have one that seems a little bigger for preschoolers, I think this size is more ideal for the 1-3 year olds that I care for.

I've had this set before and it worked just fine for preschoolers.

Right now I have this one along with a single chair of the same style and it works well.

What color did you choose for the vinyl set from Kaplan? That's one of my options. Can you send a photo of what it looks like or do you no longer have it

Abigail, my couch I sent pics of is cloth and I don't even remember which company I ordered from. We received a grant and I picked what I wanted but the state had a hand in picking the cheapest place to order from.
