Exactly what was pictured/described - a Melissa and Doug activity table. The Overstock price was lower than most and with Club O rewards, made this pricey item very affordable. Easy to put together, seems durable, my son likes it. There is a strange "stabilizer bar" under the drawer in which the pre-drilled holes on the bar and the table do not match, but the drawer works without it and could easily remedied with a drill (and why I and giving the table 4 stars). I think it should be good fun for a number of years, very versatile.

We bought this table to use with a wooden railway train set. It came with really complete step-by-step assembly instructions. It is about four inches longer and an inch to two wider than the Imaginarium train set table that we bought for the train set to put on the Melissa and Doug table. We found that the Imaginarium table top that has land and seascapes on it, works just fine over the top of this table. The extra four inches come in handy for adding on Thomas and Friends destinations and for track reconfiguration. I found two really cute white trundle drawers with chalk board for labels that match the table and fit nicely after raising the table about a quarter inch. I found these drawers online at THE major discount store where you would least expect to find anything like these drawers. (Hint: Store name starts with "W" and ends with "t." ). This table is attractive, well-made, and very functional.

I purchased this for my daughter to use in our living room to confine all those little toys. We are currently using it for our little ponies with the pony trains, ferris wheels and pony castle. She is able to access all sides so it is really great and allows for all kinds of creative play. It's relly quite sturdy too. We love Melissa & Doug in our house and have been happy with every purchase from the brand.

I would highly recommend this table - not just for the matching train set but also for a versatile play table for kids. It's nice to not have to get on the floor any more for puzzles and building legos! For the price, this is a must have!

Overall I am very happy with this table. It was very easy to put together and is very sturdy. The little drawer doesn't hold much, but I bought plastic bins and was able to store a TON of toys underneath the table in those. It's been great for organizing everything. Other reviewers said the drawer was difficult to open. I didn't have that problem at all. Make sure when you assemble the pieces to both the drawer and the table itself that you make sure the sides meet up perfectly before you tighten the screws. If you aren't careful they will be slightly crooked and that may have added to the difficulty with the drawer. Time alone will tell if this is going to withstand four kid's(ages 9, 7, 5 and 3)Ill rough and tough play, but as of right now, I couldn't be happier with it.

How tall is this table? The description says 55" high which obviously can't be right and must be the length and then the depth is only 5" which also can't be the height from floor to the table top.samoshi on Aug 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
