Has anyone got the play table? Got a chance to get one....is it massive? Do you love it?

Just read safety aspects on it and it seems there are magnets that can be swallowed
Are these magnets easy to get off?

We have a combination of ELC and Brio track, tunnels, bridges etc.

I think it's good for them to use their imaginations making tracks rather than going for a pre-determined shape - can you do that with the one you are looking at?

I am always a bit nervy about magnets tbh - I have some Magnetix for the older ones and they play in a different room and count the pieces out and back in the box again.

We have brio / tesco's wooden train set too and when the children set it up they love to make a very complicated track using all the different/unusual pieces of track. I had thought of getting a table but I know one particular mindee would get very frustrated if he couldn't make the track the way he wanted because of lack of space on the table so we just clear a big space in the living room and they get on with it.

Ikea do a great track set for £8 - it let me see for a very low price if the children would use it & how they would treat it :) my little ones love it
