The big draw with this Lego table is its built-in storage boxes and its folding-out design.
It has three collapsible bins, two on each end and one under the center. The table can “open” to reveal the center bin and give two separate Lego tables for two builders to work at once. There are 200 included building blocks.
Legos don’t easily stick to the table. The two sides can sometimes struggle to close evenly.
This activity table is a good buy with a top that lifts to reveal a LEGO-compatible surface and matching chairs.
Comes with 2 chairs. Also works with most Duplo blocks. Very easy to put together. Table is a good size for a lot of activities. Chairs can hold the weight of a small adult. Not too large for most rooms. Wears well. Kids can use for several years.
The spot in the middle of this table to store LEGOs is not very large. The chairs are extremely lightweight.
This table sits 2 feet off the ground for taller kids who want a space that is easy to build on.
LEGO construction pegs on one side of the tabletop, solid surface on the other side. Two storage drawers. Can be used with regular-sized LEGOs or larger-sized building blocks like Duplo blocks. Easy to assemble. Decent quality, and works for kids of many ages.
The baskets could be stronger, and the design puts them in what would otherwise be legroom under the table.

If you’re the parent of a LEGO-loving kid, chances are you’ve experienced the excruciating pain of stepping on a LEGO brick barefoot. If you want to avoid the spread of LEGOs all over your home — and give your children somewhere cool to play with their bricks — consider buying a dedicated LEGO table.
Before choosing which one will work best for your child, there are a few things you'll want to consider. Some LEGO tables offer only a dedicated LEGO surface, but others offer interchangeable tabletops, which work best if you have limited space. You'll also want to consider the height of the table, as a short table works great for younger kids, but not so well for older builders. If you are short on space, some tables even come with built-in storage for extra convenience.
Some LEGO tables are large enough to accommodate huge, ambitious projects. Others are more suited to smaller builds. Think about how much room to build your child needs. Younger kids are usually happy to craft fairly compact buildings and models, knock them down, and start again. Older children, on the other hand, might prefer to have a large space to work with, so they can create a big build that stays in place for some time.
Once you've decided what general size category your child requires, check product dimensions. Note that some LEGO tables don't have base plates all the way up to the edge, so the size of the building area might be smaller than the overall size of the tabletop.
Make sure your chosen LEGO table stands at the correct height for your child and is compatible with how they like to play. Some LEGO tables are just the right height for you to place a kid-sized chair underneath. This is ideal for kids who like to sit in a seat while playing. Tables of this size should be around the correct height for smaller kids to stand and play.
Plenty of shorter LEGO tables are designed for children to sit on the floor or kneel to play. This may sound uncomfortable to you, but young kids often prefer to sit on the floor instead of a chair. With the table at eye level, play can be quite enjoyable.
Although not as common, there are also larger tables made for older LEGO fans. These are closer to the height of a standard dining table and are compatible with standard-height chairs.
The majority of LEGO tables are made from wood, wood composite (such as MDF), or plastic. However, you can find a handful made from other materials, such as those with metal frames or wood composite tabletops.
LEGO tables made from wood are generally considered to be of the highest quality. They are durable and have a classic appearance, but they also cost more than other options.
Plastic LEGO tables are inexpensive, lightweight, and easy to clean, but some consumers don't like the look of a plastic table. There are also issues with sustainability that some people might object to.
Wood composite LEGO tables are cheaper than solid wood tables and more eco-friendly than plastic tables. However, wood composite is the least-durable option.
If one of your goals in buying a LEGO table is to contain the LEGO explosion in your home to a single designated place, then you should choose a LEGO table with built-in storage. The majority of LEGO table storage is in the form of drawers that sit just under the tabletop. However, you can find some other storage solutions, such as net bags or wells in the center of the table to hold LEGO bricks. Whatever storage option your chosen table offers, just check that it's ample enough to hold the bulk of your child's LEGO collection.
Some LEGO tables have an optional cover that you can fit over the top of the brick-building area. This creates a flat, smooth surface on which your child can engage in other activities. A surface like this is great for drawing, crafts, writing practice, homework, or even for use as a kids' table for family dinners. An alternative to the cover option is a double-sided, flippable surface with one side covered in LEGO base plates and the other completely smooth. A table with a cover or double-sided top is more versatile than a straight-up LEGO table. However, if you already have a basic kids' table, it's unnecessary.
What's the average price of a LEGO table, and what do you receive for your money?
On the lower end of the price spectrum, you can find basic LEGO tables for $40 to $60. These are usually made from plastic or MDF and may not have the largest building surfaces.
In this range, LEGO tables tend to fall between $60 and $80. You can find some larger options at this price, and they may be sturdier and have more storage.
Expect to pay $80 to $150 for a high-end LEGO table. These are usually made from solid wood or high-quality wood composite. They should have large building surfaces and plenty of storage.
Check whether your chosen LEGO table arrives assembled. Some arrive fully put together, and some you must assemble yourself. Avoid the latter if you balk at the idea of flat-packed furniture.
Decide whether you want a table that can be used for LEGOs only. Some are more versatile and feature extras, so they can also be used as water tables, drawing tables, or general activity tables. Others are dedicated to LEGOs alone.
Think about how often your child plays with LEGOs. Spending hundreds of dollars on a LEGO table would be overkill for a kid who plays with LEGOs a few times a month. A cheaper option would suffice. Conversely, it's worth stretching your budget for a child who happily plays with LEGOs for hours each day.
A. On the majority of LEGO tables, the base plates are attached to the tabletop. As such, it can be impossible to remove a delicate LEGO creation without damaging it. If your child likes to keep and display LEGO creations, consider getting smaller base plates to attach to the table and building directly on those. That way, it will be easier for your child to remove and keep any special creations.
A. Ideally, your LEGO table should be made from a material that's easy to wipe clean with a damp rag. Plastic is a safe bet, as is treated or painted wood or wood composite. Untreated wood or wood composite is more likely to stain and retain dirt. The LEGO base plates are the trickiest part to clean, as dirt can gather and stick around the raised bumps over time.
A. A large number of LEGO tables are designed for younger kids aged three to six. However, plenty of LEGO fans are older than this. You can find a handful of bigger LEGO tables aimed at older children.
