My son loves it, but its a little wobblyJul 04, 2004
By L. Peppin
My son just loves this toy. He is 13 months old, and he returns to it several times per day. That said, his interest is almost entirely in the piano portion, which is detachable. So far, he has no interest in the "lego-like" things. He does play with the other half (little creatures which move and make noise), and enjoys them, but not as much as the piano. Of course, he has many music toys, and comes to this more often because it is raised, and as a pre-walker, he prefers to stand.
Problem: he loves to climb, and tries to climb ONTO this table all the time. It is way to wobbly (spelling?) for that, so I'm constantly telling him not to do that. He does seem to be learning, but I still have to keep an eye on him. However, I wouldn't trade this toy for any other he has right now. Not a day has gone by that he hasn't spent 30-60 minutes at it throughout the day since it arrived.

Great Choice & Good ValueNov 11, 2004
By M. Coe
Table is small enough to not take over a play area
Small Toy side is great and my sons favorite
Storage area is fun for baby to empty and fill
Good price (I got my for under $30 and it was not a sale)
Two volume settings
Does not require any assembly
My son is 7 months & loves it as do toddler friends
Easy to clean
Legs aren't weighted so an older baby can drag it or even tump it
You do not get many blocks and they are an odd size

My son's FAVORITE toyAug 12, 2005
By Kristen Borsetti
This was an instant hit with our son when we bought it. There are several components to the toy, but not too many to overstimulate or make it dis-interesting. With the table component, I agree with others - the legs can be wobbly IF your child is sitting on the ground and tries to pull the table down. I don't think that can be solved with any table on the market. But more importantly, you can take the table off the legs and set it on the ground. In either case, our son will crawl to it first thing in the morning and play with it endlessly (okay... he does have to sleep and eat).
The piano is by far the favorite. There is a piano book where the pages will turn. For each turn the piano will do different things: 1st page - the baby can play their own tune, 2nd page - a tune will automatically play when the keyboard is touched, 3rd page - the baby can follow along the lighted keys to play a tune. You can also change the sound to four different instruments. The other activity area contains different sounds (bees buzzing, frogs ribbeting, etc.) for different actions. My son is also very interested in this.
On the other (flip side) of the table, you can use this for the 10 building blocks provided. The Chicco blocks are nice and large, and my son loves play for the blocks and/or grabbing and reaching for them in the storage compartment of the table. He's not of the age to construct the blocks right now. He loves the sound of clinking them together and demolishing anything I build.
As a parent, I feel he his getting exposed to many different elements for his growth and this is definitely a toy he will not grow out of in a month. I can see him playing with this for months on end.

one of my best purchasesDec 10, 2004
By Kathy A. Pollock
I bought this table for my grandson when he started pulling himself up (about 7mos old) He passes alot of time playing the keyboard and dancing to his own music. And when he is into stacking blocks and such we can reverse the table and use the blocks. I have found this table to be very sturdy because now he takes out the part that is reverseable and climbs unto the table support and sits (just because he can). He is a climber.

Great toy. My son loves to play the piano.Nov 25, 2004
By Jana Zelezna
I would absolutely recommend this toy. My son loves it, especially turning the pages to hear different songs. I gave it to him at the time he was 9 months old and just started to push himself to stand and he loves to play the piano standing from that time on. He also loves the blocks and he tries to reach them from the storage place below the piano all the time.
I do not care about the fact, that there is only 10 or so blocks, because it is just enough for his age, and when he is older, he moves to toys like Duplo anyway, I guess.
The only negative I've noticed is that the piano desk is just placed on the top and not secured anyhow, so he can lift the whole desk by pulling the strings above the pond up.
Anyway, it is a great toy and I would recommend it.
