LEGO, the worlds’ 5th largest toy company that was voted “The Toy of the Century,” was founded by a father and son carpentry team, Ole Kirk and Godtfried Christiansen in Billund, Denmark.
Although their business began in 1932, the LEGO name was not coined until two years later, after their then wooden toys became immensely popular. One of the prime features of this respected product line are its LEGO tables, which are as sturdy and durable as the LEGO brand itself has been over the years.
While LEGO tables are primarily built with wood, some tables have LEGO and LEGO DUPLO (bigger blocks or bricks for younger children with smaller hands) plates built into them.
These studded plates, built with Acrylonitrile Butadine Styrene (ABS) are nearly indestructible and scratch resistant. The LEGO bricks securely attach to the studs in the plates freeing your child to fully explore wherever his or her imagination will take him or her.
Encourage your child to take advantage of the unlimited possibilities with LEGOS!
The LEGO tables wide variety of styles can be found anywhere from studio apartments to spacious homes. Many educators also recommend and purchase LEGO tables for their classrooms.
Determining which table will serve your child’s purposes can be easily solved by considering 2 main factors:
1. Your child’s age, and...
2. The number of children that will be playing together.
The minimum suggested ages for the tables break down into two general ranges:
• 2-3 years and up
• 5 years and up

1. Mesh storage pockets
2. Detachable plates for easy access to storage
