Whoopie... I got a kickass table for birthday. Er... Dad , this does not sound right???!!!???
I was a little perplexed. I saw the picture on the box showing a table with a train set and thought I was getting the train set instead. A table may be interesting to some but it sure does not sound enticing to me.

There are 15 different parts in the Melissa and Doug table. Before assembly, we recommend you to sort them out first for easy reference. There are stickers indicating the parts number, so it is pretty easy to identify them. As for assembly, if you can follow a typical IKEA instructions, Melissa and Doug table would be a breeze .As for the materials, the Melissa and Doug table comes in solid wood as compared to plywood products from certain brands. Given its quality, we have no doubt that it would make a sturdy and stable table when completed.

With a little bit of creative engineering , Daddy managed to combine both the new and old wooden train sets into one. After an hour of building , he is ready to unveil our very own train paradise. The train set itself is not glued or bolted down. Instead Daddy used blu-tac to keep the tracks in place. This way it allows flexibility to change the track designs or to use the table for other purposes in the future.

For those interested, the Melissa and Doug Multi Activity table is available at Mothercare Singapore. It may not be available in all stores, so do head down to their website here to order one. The table could also be used for other functions such as puzzles, building blocks, doll house, Lego tables, etc, thus the term 'multi activity'. Considering the cost is cheaper than a Thomas the Train table set, the table is value for money given it's functions.
Do take note that the table is a tad big. It took up half our room when fixed!

This is not a sponsored post hor...We did pay for the table albeit at a generous discount. There are simply too little info on train tables in Singapore, so we thought of sharing this for those looking for one. A special thank to Shu Ming who made Little Lou birthday extra special.
