Guidecraft currently uses rubberwood and birch woods to create their inspiring kids creations. Both are eco-friendly, which is an additional plus! Rubberwood and Birch are both sustainable, so those of you who like to purchase sustainable products, shop away without any guilt!

guidecraft reviewThe last several months I have saw a lot of buzz online about Guidecraft and their products, but had yet to own any. When I was offered to review the Pirate Table and Chairs I was super excited! I had been on the hunt for a small kids table and chairs for my kitchen (for lunch time and crafts), so it was perfect timing. Plus, I knew my kids would love the pirate design.

The table and chairs arrived in a large box and we were all excited to tear into the box! I had already told the 2 and 4 year old about the table and chairs so they were super stoked to get it too. Inside the box everything was well padded and wrapped to ensure it remained protected during shipping. Everything arrived in great condition and the pirate ship, map and treasure boxes were beautifully painted. (prettier in person). The detail in each painting is amazing and you can really tell dedication was put into the creation of the product.


Every piece was sticker labeled to coordinate with the instructions. Hardware was included and also labeled.

Unlike some products that are complicated to put together, the entire set was put together in about 15 minutes by my husband. He glanced over the instructions once and off to work he (and the 2 year old) went. He did mention that anyone who is familiar with assembly would not even need instructions because it was self-explanatory.

I was delighted to see the set put together. I’m still amazed at how beautiful the Pirate artwork is and how well the colors work together. The map on the table is beautiful and the Pirate Ship on the chairs is just as detailed. The seat on the chairs have Treasure Chests filled with gold, all in great detail with accent colors.

After the table and chairs were put together the kids were ecstatic to put it to use. My 2 year old and 4 year old were quick to hop in the chairs and check out the table map. They were even excited to smile for the camera!

When my 6 year old realized how much fun the little two were having she wanted in. Since the set only comes with 2 chairs, I guess I will be ordering more! It will be nice to have a few extra for playdates anyway.

How Was My Experience With Guidecraft?

  • The table and chairs arrived quickly!
  • Everything arrived in perfect condition!
  • The set was simple to put together!
  • The paintings are detailed and dang near perfect!
  • After assembly, the set is sturdy on tile flooring and carpets.
  • After being jumped in a few times, it’s still just as sturdy.
  • My kids have enjoyed using the table for lunch time and craft time! When the kids are happy…mom is happy!

What I Would Like To See Improved?

Overall I am super satisfied with the Pirate Table and Chairs and would feel comfortable recommending it.  I think the over-all theme is super and perfect for boys and girls and I love how they have so many matching pieces, perfect for decorating a bedroom, using in the kitchen, or themed play room! I honestly would only like to see two things improved….

  1. I would love to see rivets used to cover the screw openings. After my two year old watched dad put it together, he has taken his imagination to the next level, by trying to be a construction worker take the set apart himself!
  2. I would like to see the option of purchasing the table and chair set with 4 chairs. I know you can order additional chairs, I just think it would be easier for some to have it offered right there on the ordering page.

Check out the Pirate Collection online. Guidecraft has several matching pieces, a Treasure Chest, Rocking Chair, Table Lamp, Extra Chairs, and an adorable Pirate Ship. Everything is price reasonable and well worth the costs!
