From the brand
- Thick solid hardwood construction
- Tall enough to allow your child to be comfortably seated while at play
- The best in the industry, white, two sided easy to clean melamine table top. This makes your table a true, multi-use table, not just a permanent, hard to clean single use Lego table!
- Our base plates are 2-Sided! They feature Lego on one side, Duplo on the other. They are total precision, perfection for the perfect “snap” fit.
- Another great benefit for our design, having the base plates be removable is this: your child may start a project on the base plates, then later remove the base plates with projects in tact. Now do another activity on the table like puzzles, Play-Doh, arts and crafts, homework. Then later, place the base plates back on the table and continue to build the projects!
- An additional benefit of our design is you may purchase an 24″ leg set to make this table taller…to grow along with your child!
- You may purchase this table WITH HOLES in the framing for accessories as in N34. Or, you may purchase it WITHOUT HOLES in the framing as in N34N. Our top seller is WITH HOLES so you may take advantage of them with our Hammer ‘N Nails Set, Nails, Zoob, Fiddlestix and other things. See our Accessories to understand this benefit better….
- Our design is timeless. It is simple. It is made like a quality piece of furniture.
THESE ARE SHORTCOMINGS WITH OTHER TABLE DESIGNS WE’VE OBSERVED:
Bag in the center: Table top is an permanent Lego top…cannot clean easily. Kids climb up onto the table and jump into the bag tearing it. Bag in the center limits that are for building legos. No melamine multi-use top for puzzles, Play-Doh, etc. Too low to the ground, does not allow seating.
Lego Dacta: Too expensive. Permanent Lego top, hard to clean. No melamine table top for multi-use.
Kidkraft: Too low to the ground, does not allow seating. Table top is lego…hard to clean. Particle board construction.
There are lots of other tables out there but if you study them and note these things we’ve pointed out here you probably will conclude that our Nilo table is the best thing going. Note, ALL OF OUR TABLES ARE LEGO/DUPLO tables since you can purchase the base plates separately to make them so. Its just that our N34 table we’ve always marketed with the base plates. We also offer the N34X which is without the base plates. You have to agree though, to be able to remove the base plates to clean them or to be able to do some other activity on the white melamine table top….what can possibly be better than that? Oh, and note that our base plates are MADE IN THE U.S.A., as well as the table top and packaging!
Keep Kids Active
KIDS ACTIVITY TABLE APPEARANCE
Our design is timeless, clean, simple. We designed it so it appears like an piece of quality furniture…which it truly is! The Nilo logo is carved into the wood and painted! It isn’t stamped on, silk screened on, painted on or worse, just a sticker! Nope, I wanted that element to be as graceful as the rest of the table. It cost a bit more but I feel it is worth it. Don’t you?
NILO’S KIDS ACTIVITY TABLE PLAY TABLE TRAIN TABLE LEGO TABLE DESIGN
A few key points here. One, the raised borders are the perfect height, not too low, not too high. As such, they serve to keep manipulative on the table top and off the floor. Second, its the perfect height for wooden train use…the track is 1/2″ thick, our borders are 1 1/4″ high. This allows for 3/4″ of raised border with wooden track being placed on the table. Its therefore excellent to use as an WOODEN TRAIN TABLE. I’ve noticed many tables feature just 1/2″ or 1″ and others feature 2 1/2″ or more! None of these dimensions are ideal in my opinion. Thus, we feel our 1 1/4″ is the best out there. Its also ideal to use as an LEGO TABLE! Or, DUPLO TABLE, thanks to our wonderful baseplates or Block Mats as we call them.
Solid hardwood, dado in frame which sandwiches the table top for added strength, solid “L” shaped legs and 1/4″ bolts, 6mm corner screws hold this baby together…for life! Best multi-use surface for a play table, namely, melamine. We chose to include a “two sided” top. If one side gets damaged you can disassemble one end of the table, slide out the top, flip it over and bingo, you have a new table top again!
Buy once, Buy Right, Buy Nilo
Our Nilo tables come with a 2-SIDED WHITE MELAMINE MULTI-USE table top! Meaning, white on two sides. Thus, if you ruin one side of the panel you can disassemble the table and flip it over for another usable, new side! There isn’t a better multi-use surface than melamine! If there was I would have been using it on our tables. The white top allows for super clean, super cool play with Play-Doh, Puzzles, Wooden Blocks, arts and crafts, you name it! Consider this very important aspect of a table!
Holes or No Holes?
With Holes in Framing: The original reason for the holes was to hammer in Nails and construct off of the table with a toy called Brio-Mec. Our N99s Slide Hammer ’N Nails allows you to Hit the Nails INTO the table and then Hit them OUT of the table thanks to our dual purpose Slide Hammer design. The holes also interact with our Nilo-Jax (Extreme trestle set great for wooden trains and other track sets), Rok-Jax (Rokenbok use) and our Nails also work with Zoob (a construction toy), Fiddlestix and other toy uses! So if you want to add value to your Nilo table you may want to consider our #1 selling N51 (large full size) table or our N34 (half size table).
Without Holes in Framing: Basically, a cleaner design, not having holes in the framing. Obviously, you lose the ability to do the other activities above. Either way….your purchasing the absolute best quality table for your child!
About NILO Toys
It’s a fun American success story to tell. I am happy to share with you my personal experience with this company so that it may encourage you to “go for it” . . . both by making your own dream come true and by going out and purchasing a Nilo brand table and/or product!
As many companies are . . . it all started out of my garage in 1992. My wife and I didn’t find a suitable multi-use table for our two children, 2 and 4 years of age. So the wife says, “why don’t you make us a table, honey?” I did. As per my wife’s instructions, I increased its size to fit the Lego/Duplo base plates. Then, holes around the border of the table were added to accommodate Brio-Mec, a fun construction toy at the time. Bingo, the Nilo table was born. Shortly after its arrival, our friends started flocking over to our house to see this “table” in action. They couldn’t believe it. . . our kids and theirs were playing quietly around this multi-functional table. They watched as the children played in total peace and how our house stayed in order. WOW!
