TrackTile Tables – Tables with Wooden Toy Train Tracks

No room for the toy train tracks at home? How about combining the dining room table with endless wooden train tracks? TrackTile Tables does just that!

TrackTile Tables have surfaces that are made out of tiles, which are plain on one side and has wooden BRIO toy train tracks on the other side. You simply turn the tiles over, and you get at table filled with endless toy train tracks. Quite a space saver.

The tables are unique and handmade to put a new spin on fine dining, but they are just perfect for the kids, don’t you think?

I find it very clever, as the dining room table often functions as a play area anyway…..and I can just imagine having a birthday party around this table, and being able to serve treats by sending the treat-train around the table!

By making two pieces out of each stacking ring, Buchi has created a beautifully simple combined stacking and puzzle toy with several different degrees of difficulty.

The stacking rings are made out of a cross and a surrounding square, which fit perfectly together. The first challenges will be to put the squares onto the crosses and to put the crosses onto the stick. The next challenge will be putting the squares onto the crosses after having placed the crosses onto the stick first.

Besides being a clever toy it is also very simple and beautiful and could be perfect as nursery decoration.
