Kids table and chairs

This is a table and chair set I made for my 3 year old son and he loves it! I changed a couple of things. One of the things was with the table top, instead of making it rectangular I did mine square. The second thing was instead of doing the three pieces of wood I used a single 3/4" 2'x2' piece of birch plywood I found at Lowes. With the chairs I also did solid piece seats instead of the slats and I decided to do the legs with 2"x2" wood instead of 1"x2" and I found those modified plans here

I really like the modifications you made. These look like the chairs I remember from my kindergarten days. I have the table and chairs in my "to do" list. Now I know what to do to make them look more like the kid-sized chairs I like the most.
