Years and years ago we had a kitchen table and chairs that swiveled. The kids loved to sit and spin and spin and spin until finally, the wheels fell off. Because kitchen chairs just are not made for that kind of abuse – the kind of abuse a 3 and 5 year old can inflict on furniture. One day, the youngest was spinning away and whammo! The chair wheel fell right off. Snapped in two. So I did the logical thing and bought some stem casters that were metal. The only problem was that when we moved to the scorching desert, the wheels were no es bueno for my new southwest tile floors. If I still had linoleum, I am certain I’d still have that kitchen set.
