Where can I find this set of (foam) children's chairs?

Our local bookstore has a great children's play/reading area. In that area, there is a (child-sized) chair and table set. The chairs look like this. The table is a similar pattern. They seem to be made of some kind of high-density foam - they are sturdy and moderately heavy for their size, but have some "give" to them; they are not wood or plastic. I can't see any markings on the chairs or the table and no one at the store knew where they were from. Any ideas of where I can find these?

Is it possible to attach a sliding part for my keyboard to my table?

I have a table that I bought from IKEA which is a bit like this: http://www.ikea.com/​ca/​en/​catalog/​products/​S29806818/ and the problem I have is that while the screen on the table is fine, the keyboard which is right in front of it seems to me to be too high for my arms. So I was wondering if it is possible to install that sliding part you find in computer tables like this one: http://img.weiku.com/​waterpicture/​2011/​10/​25/0/​office_​furniture_​computer_​table_​6345924906​78635461​_1.jpg and what that part is called anyway? Thanks! [more inside]

How do I attach a short wood plank onto an Ikea fiberboard tabletop?

My desk is not deep enough for me to sit comfortably with the monitor at a distance. How would I go about anchoring a wood plank onto it that will hold the counterweight of a 24" monitor sitting on the overhanging edge? This picture should explain what I mean. Clamps? Nails? Screws? [more inside]

Copying Word tables into Excel without splitting cells into multiple rows

I need help copying a table from Word to Excel in Office 2007. Where there are hard returns within a cell in the Word table, Excel splits the table cell into multiple rows. I need Excel not to split cells in the Word table into multiple Excel rows. At the same time, I need to retain the paragraphs that appear within the Word table cells - that is, I can't just get rid of all those hard returns; the formatting must be preserved. My Google-fu is failing me rather seriously. Is there any way to do this?
