Excellent for the priceAlexanderSturdy, nice and stylish. And dirt cheap! Kids love it. Although it can hold an adult, it was designed for kids only. Don't forget to press (sit) on it well before you give it to your child, so that the joints tighten up and the chair becomes safe and sturdy.5
the slight pressure on theglenthe slight pressure on the lower back is excellent. comfortable. great price. (also good for playing guitar in)5
My 8 yr old assembled itJenGreat value for the money. Bought it for my son and he insisted that he put it together. He did. He's proud of himself.5
NiceAnonymousRelaxing chair5
Best compact desk chairmom firstBought these chairs for my kids to do there work at and they are amazing. Can be adjusted to four different heights so it was perfect for my little ones to reach the table. Everyone loved them that I had to buy three more for family.5
Perfect for our grandsonOperaladyWe recently purchased this chair for our grandson. Our two other grandchildren have one each for their desks, so we knew the chair was a good purchase. However, we were disappointed that it was only available in one colour....gray. Our older grandson has it in gray as well, but at one point there must have been other colours available because our granddaughter has a yellow one. We were hoping for a brighter colour than gray for our little five year old.4
Useful but not the greatestmoshbGood price, useful for quick sitting, I would not recommend this for a long period use. What can make this better is the ability to turn.3
cute but that's about itEmma89kI bought this a few months ago, because the colour (yellow one) would go with my room's theme. It's not exactly comfortable and it has started to squeak loudly anytime anyone sits on it. I should have just gone with a normal chair2
Price is cheapJelaiPerfect for little kids...4
Great little chairNienWe had a stool, replaced it with this little chair because it had a backrest. Love it.5
Super uncomfortabletrisha009I bought this thinking it'll look cute and neat for my desk. Realized I should have gone for a real desk chair; it is so uncomfortable, that I can hardly sit for an hour.2
Excellent grow with me optionMomewhoshopsatikeaWe previously bought a children's desk and chair but we grew the desk and the chair is too short now. We purchased another desk and this chair which can grow together! Easy assembley too!4
ChairracethunderAwesome sturdy chair, colour goes with any theme, height is adjustable and in my case, grows with my child!5

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastic

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastic

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

"When I designed MOLTE, I was inspired by soft, organic shapes and wanted to use that to create a comfortable desk chair with a lot of character. I’m proud that we managed to maximize both comfort and style, while using a minimum amount of material. That reduces the impact on the environment. I hope people feel happy when they see the chair – and even happier when they use it!"
