Our Nilo Toys Review – Multi-Use Play Tables

Nilo Toys produces quality, sturdy, multi-use play tables and accessories.  I am so impressed with:

  • the quality
  • they’re multi-functional
  • the storage options
  • the customizable options (size of table, table holes, mats, accessories)

Their motto is “Buy once, Buy right, Buy Nilo®!”  And honestly, this is a great motto for this company!

Here are some pics of the table I received – after I assembled it.  BTW – assembly was a breeze.

Now, I’d like to discuss the quality of the table, the multi-functionality of the table, the storage possibilities and how you can customize the table.

Nilo Toys Review – Quality

All of the Nilo Toys tables and accessories are made out of solid hard wood (in a variety of finishes) and they are built to last for generations.

Look how sturdy this table is!!

Nilo Toys Review Multi-Functional

  • Tables are 19 inches tall, ideal for toddlers and children (low enough to do puzzles and other activities).
  • Leg extensions are available as kids get older/taller.
  • The height of the raised border on the table keeps small manipulatives on the table top.
  • Its ideal to use as an LEGO table or a DUPLO table, thanks to the baseplates /Block Mats (more info on these below).
  • Also, its the perfect height for wooden train use (wooden train track is 1/2″ thick, and the table borders are 1 1/4″ high).

Nilo Toys Review Storage

Look at the possible storage!  I have to say – I love storage – and this is really efficient/space-saving storage!  Woo Hoo!!


Notice some of the customizable options below. You can also choose between the 34″ table or the 48″ table. You can also choose between holes/no holes in the framing, the frame style, and whether you’d like mats.


Here are the Table Specs for the 34″ Table

  • Measures 25″W x 34″L x 20″H
  • Play surface 24″W x 32″L
  • Solid hardwood construction
  • Easy to clean double-sided melamine surface
  • Each baseplate is 12″ x 32″. They simply drop into the raised border of the tables
  • Easy to clean baseplates – you can remove them and wash them
  • Fantastic LEGO/DUPLO table, puzzle table, etc
  • Super train table
  • 24″ Leg Kit available for this table as an add-on
  • The table design allows seating – and you can choose between stools/chairs and benches
  • The Nilo storage bins fit easily underneath
  • Made to last for generations

Table Options

With Holes in Framing: Holes in frame are compatible with  Nilo-Jax (Extreme trestle set great for wooden trains and other track sets), Rok-Jax (Rokenbok use) and their Nails also work with Zoob (a construction toy), Fiddlestix, Brio-Mec and other toys.

Without Holes in Framing: Basically, a cleaner design, not having holes in the framing.

Mats: You can add green 2-Sided Block Mats, Lego® on one side, Duplo on the other side.

What do I Like about this Product?

  • OMGosh – the quality and the durability!  This table is daycare quality and will last for years – decades! I’ve found that men really ooh and ahh over this table – they’re impressed with the craftsmanship.  I have a friend that’s a professional cabinet maker and he’s really impressed with this table.
  • The flexibility!  In overall table size, table height, use, and storage.
  • It’s very attractive.  Again, oohing and ahhing.  🙂
  • It features an easy to clean solid white melamine top.  The white surface is on the top and bottom of the table so if one side gets stained/ruined, you can just turn it over.  That’s nice.  And practical.  I love practical!  🙂
  • Mats are an option too.  They work for LEGO and DUPLO.
  • The mats are easy to remove and clean.
  • With the mats, your child can start a project on the mat, remove the mat with the project on it – and use the table for another use.
  • You can customize your table.
  • It’s a breeze to assemble.  I HATE assembling anything.  I’d rather pay more for an item and have it delivered ready-to-go – but that’s usually not an option.  If you have to assemble something – hope it’s as easy as this table!
  • You can also purchase other items to go with the table. Check out the stool and the storage bins. And I LOVE their toy chest/bench.  Really….check out the toy chest/bench!  You’ll love it.

  • This is a U.S. family owned business, established in 1992.
  • I don’t usually comment on price – but the price is really reasonable!  Again, this table is daycare quality – I’d expect it to be priced at a much higher price point.
  • On top of their GREAT price, the company is offering a 10% discount to HowToHomeschool.net readers.  Just send an email to orders@nilotoys.com before you order and they mention HOW TO HOME SCHOOL. This discount will go through the end of January 2019.
