Mammut is great!Dagny M.We have a blue Mammut from 2012 that’s still kicking. Two kids have used it for a breakfast table, craft table, random stuff table and it’s always been great. Sturdy and easy to clean with no seam around the edge to gather grossness. The kids have outgrown it, so now we use it as a coffee table!5

Just what I was looking for!HannaI was looking for a table with about these dimensions and it’s surprisingly hard to find one this size! I’m so glad I found Mammut, it’s sturdy, easy to clean, and fits perfectly (I use it to elevate one of my cats’ litter boxes so I can have one above and below). I thought it might rock because the legs are rounded at the end but it doesn’t at all!5

Cute tableJudithThis goes along with the chairs - was a gift for my grandchildren - I’m told they were a great hit.
I’m assuming assembly was quick and easy - looked like it would be.5
Not sturdy, all plastic.NuIt is not sturdy. It’s just looks good for decoration but not very useful.1
Perfect for my 3 year old.HeidiBought this to go with 4 chairs someone had given me already. Its perfect for my 3 year old. Even my bigger kids 8 and 12 like to sit at it to do art and crafts.5
Perfect Children's TableBcottI tried buying this before the pandemic as I had a coupon to save $10 on a pirchase, but that went out the door. I was finally able to get it, I'm sad they don't have the green anymore as that's my son's favorite color, and he saw the green in the child center. It's easy to clean, I like it very much! Easy assembly.4
Great table for little kids!MawmawWe’ve had this table for over a year now and it looks like the day we got it. Everything wipes clean and it’s virtually indestructible. My 4 year old sits at this table for everything. Breakfast, legos, iPad games or play doh fun.5
Extremely easy to clean.Schnitzel 57Being at the mercy of young hands this table is very durable. Thus far it has undergone my 23 month old granddaughter’s painting, coloring, play dough creations, reading, and cleans up easily so she may eat at it.5
Love itNae100My children love the table5
Grandson is visiting......ChefSueTime to get him a little table and chair to eat at. Adorable, looks like Disney designed it. I bought the white with two blue chairs. Only complaint was from the husband who thought the table at $39.99 was a bit over priced for what it is. The chairs were $15 each which Brough the total cost to $70 so I have to agree for plastic it should have been $39.99 for all 3 pieces......4
Light plastic table!Happy8White color is hard to keep it clean. The only other option was a too bright red. No thanks! I wish you have more color options. Not bright ones, maybe pastel tones. Same with the chairs.3
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.
Sarah Pattison is an engineer at Children's IKEA who has worked with improving the MAMMUT series. For example, today the tables contain less plastic than when they were introduced. "Thanks to new technology, we could scale away some plastic inside the table top without compromising on its stability. This change hasn’t affected its look, but it means we use less material."
High demands on safe plastic
All MAMMUT parts are made of polypropylene, a plastic particularly suitable for children’s products. "When children play, their skin often comes in contact with things and that’s why the plastic we use always meets the world's highest set chemical requirements by a good margin,” says Sarah. But plastic is slowly broken down by the sun's UV rays, which can affect both color and quality when using the furniture outdoors. "When we understood that children like to carry the furniture outdoors, we reinforced the plastic with UV protection, which of course also complies with our chemical requirements."
Safety tests every year
The furniture also goes through annual safety tests. New knowledge about materials and safety constantly surfaces and needs to be adapted to. So why has MAMMUT survived for so long? "I think it's the cheerful colors and the appeal of shapes that feel like they came out of a comic book", says Sarah. "My daughters have used them for countless teatimes and building play forts over the years."
Only recycled or renewable plastics
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 plastics
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!
