Unfortunately, your dining table or coffee table tends to take a beating from the glue, crayons and glitter. The answer? A play table. The styles you see below range from whimsical to traditional and all are made of durable, easy-to-clean materials. Your kids will appreciate a space all their own and you’ll be saving your furniture from wear and tear.
