Melissa and Doug Multi- Activity Play table
on 7 January 2011
I thought about buying this table about 6 months ago, (after doing a fair amount of research..) and now wonder why I didn't disobey my husband then - who thought it was an unnecessary expense!!
HOW WRONG HE WAS......So, as he lay in bed with proper Flu for 7 days over Christmas, I naughtily ordered it to store all the b..... Playmbil my son has just been given which I had had TO SPEND HOURS ASSEMBLING ON CHRISTMAS DAY!
The table arrived today - took the plumber (don't ask!) 30 minutes to assemble, whilst I shifted the kids room around and hey presto my life and theirs (5 & 3) has been transformed.
Toys all in one place at a level that they can easily kneel/stand/sit alongside of, and its plenty big enough for 3-4 kids to have a side each and interact with each others games. It is also surprisingly light to pull this way and that i.e. to store to one side at night, then our 5 year old can drag it out into centre of the room by day, laden with the said Playmobil. He loves the drawer underneath for his Bionicals and I have also slotted 2 of the IKEA underbed boxes stuffed with toys under it too and the drawer still slides..AMAZING.
IF you are dithering about the price don't! At [...] its a steal for the quality and we had Free Super Saver delivery too; it arrived exactly 7 days after ordering with the NEW YEAR bank holidays included. I was phoned 2 days ago by The Home Delivery Service and given a 4-hour midday slot today (handily co-inciding with the Plumbers visit too!).
It looks really nice assembled and not at all clunky/chunky.The underside of the green boards is unpainted so a quick roll of paint and one could create another scene to suit your childs toys, ie dino-land, Sea-scape or train tracks/airport or just Pink for girly stuff....one wouldn't need to be Michelangelo I imagine!
What a great start to the New Year. Thank you Amazon for stocking this item cheaper than anywhere else.
