But the BEST thing about Step2? Their amazing products, of course! Step2 is celebrating their 20th year of bringing safe, durable, and imaginative products to families. I remember having Step2 products in my home as a child, and I have been a Step2 fan for most of my life. Step2 offers a wide range of products from great ride-on toys to outdoor playhouses and playgrounds, and they even carry wonderful products for indoor play! One of Sophie's favorites is the Step2 Art Desk Easel. She loves being able to sit down and color at her own special art station! We also love the Step2 Play Kitchens. They allow budding chefs to play house and do what they see Mommy doing in the kitchen every day! For your chance to win a Step2 Kitchen of your own, as well as a video camera and a chance at $5,000.00, check out the Big Imaginations Are Cooking Contest! You can submit your stories NOW, but hurry! 10 finalists will be chosen on November 23, 2011!
As a part of my Holiday Gift Guide, I received a great new product from Step2, the Build & Store Block & Activity Table! This multipurpose table is the perfect play space for building, drawing, or any creative adventure your child can dream up. With lots of storage and removable block plates, it's also a perfect activity table. The really cool part? The removable block plates are compatible with both Legos and MEGA Blocks, making this great for the tiniest of builders and their bigger siblings alike!
More great features of the Build & Store Block & Activity Table are:
- Features four cups and two removable trays to organize small pieces
- Molded-in storage areas help keep projects organized
- Holds two removable 10.5" x 15" (26.7 x 38 cm) building block base plates
- Four bins included for extra storage
- Includes 11" (28 cm) stool
- Creative accessories and building blocks not included
- Minimal adult assembly required
Once the table was together, I stood back and looked at it in wonder. Not only is the Build & Store Block & Activity Table very attractive, in bright, primary colors, it is also very efficiently designed. The work/play surface is generously sized, and can accommodate even the most elaborate of Lego or block creations. There is also abundant storage thanks to the many included accessories. There are 4 "cups" that fit right into the table surface. These cups are perfect for holding crayons, markets, colored pencils, or paintbrushes. There are also 4 roomy storage tubs that sit on shelves built into the table legs.These are ideal for holding blogs, Legos, craft supplies, Hot Wheels cars, or anything else your child's heart desires! Speaking of Legos, there are removable block plates that can be conveniently stored on the interior of the table legs. They're compatible with Legos and MEGA Blocks! They fit the table top perfectly, and when you switch activities, you can simply tuck the block plates away for safe keeping. If that wasn't enough, the table also comes complete with a sturdy little stool to give kids a comfortable place to sit while they create. I have to admit it, I was a little envious of my babies, since I didn't have such an awesome activity table when I was a kid!
Sophie, my toddler, absolutely LOVES the Step2 Build & Store Block & Activity Table. The first thing she wanted to do? Play with her wooden blocks, of course! Here are some photos of Sophie's first experience with her brand new activity table:
