Kids12 Best Kids' Dressing Tables In Australia For 2023

Little humans start taking pride in their appearance from a pretty young age and kids’ dressing tables are the perfect bedroom items for practising all their preening and posing.

Kids’ dressing tables are functional tables that children use for imaginative play, dressing and honing their grooming skills. They usually include a mirror, a flat surface for storing accessories and some even come as a complete set with a vanity chair. But as well as being a fabulous piece of furniture for enhancing life skills, a kids’ dressing table is also super versatile, doubling as a desk in the older years.

Ready to find the cutest, coolest and most creative dressing tables for your mini? We’ve scouted out Australia’s top options for all ages and put them in a handy shortlist for you. First, let’s take a look at what you should consider when you’re shopping for one.

What to consider when buying a dressing table for children

  • Safety – The biggest risk that comes with dressing tables is the risk of them toppling. Product Safety Australia recommends buying low-set and sturdy items with broad bases and looking for sets that come with wall-anchoring kits. In addition, avoid putting heavy items on dressing tables and consider placing locking devices on drawers to prevent young kids from climbing on them.
  • Features – From drawers and shelves to mirrors and lights, there are lots of options out there when it comes to these tables. But before you buy, consider what your child will actually use.
  • Colour – Pink might be the bee’s knees for your three-year-old, but will they still love it in a year’s time? Weigh up whether the cost warrants buying something that kids are likely to outgrow quickly. From our experience, neutral-coloured furniture tends to have more longevity. And that brings us to this next point …
  • Versatility – To get the most use out of a children’s dressing table, make sure it’s versatile enough to be used in other ways. Can you use it as a desk later on? If you’re after something with longevity beyond the preschool years, consider buying a larger dressing table suitable for all ages. (We’ve listed some below!)
  • Size – Be aware that kids’ dressing tables are quite tiny! If you want something for a school-aged child, tween or teenager, we suggest getting a standard-sized model.
  • How hard is it to assemble? – Some styles come ready-made, others require assembly at home. If you’re not especially handy with an Allen key, make sure you look for a fully assembled one (although you’ll likely pay a little more for shipping).
