Best train table for a toddler? Reader Q&A

ducduc Parker Play Table on Cool Mom Picks

My toddler LOVES anything train! Do you all have any ideas for cool train tables that my toddler would love?   I wish I had done this research for my son before we got his ugly train table many years ago. Though he loves it, it’s a major eyesore every time I walk into his room. Here are some cooler-looking train tables I think you, and your toddler, could love.

 

Train Table Sled by Choo Choo Track Company | Cool Mom Picks

Under-the-bed Train Table Sled
I like that this Train Table Sled by Choo Choo Track & Toy Company doesn’t take up much space and can slide under the bed when not in use. It is also made in the USA, and you can either paint or stain it to the color that looks best in your son’s room or leave it au natural. ($229 with free shipping)

 

TAG Toys Train Table with raised edge | Cool Mom Picks

Raised-edge Train Table with Storage
Made in the U.S., the TAG Toys Activity Table has a raised edge so little pieces don’t roll off, and open storage areas so there is no need to worry about little fingers getting shut in drawers. A good standing height for even the youngest kids to pull themselves up to play. ($179.95)

Ducduc Modern Train Table with Storage
Expensive, but a striking piece of modern kids’ furniture, ducduc’s Parker Play Table can be turned into a surface for playing with trains, with plenty of storage space underneath. When/If that phase passes, the paper roll on the side turns the table into a nice flat drawing surface. Comes in six colors, or all white, to go with your decor. ($895  with free shipping)

Little Colorado Train Table at Wayfair on Cool Mom Picks

Little Colorado Activity and Train Table and Storage Drawer Set
Strong and crafted of Baltic birch, Little Colorado’s Activity and Train Table comes either unfinished or with a plain lacquered finish as shown. ($275 with free shipping)

 

IKEA Hackers Train Table on Cool Mom Picks
IKEA Hackers’ Train Table
Finally, if you want to go the semi-DIY route, Ikea Hackers has a cool example of how a few pieces of white shelving can become a train table. I think this idea could be created using a variety of different Ikea units, so don’t worry too much if they don’t carry the same exact pieces mentioned in the article. (cost varies)
