At this point, we’ve had the Baby Einstein Curiosity Activity table for almost a year now. I figured it was well beyond time to write up a review. There are lots of activity tables or stations to choose from today and no one with little kids wants to waste their hard earned money on toys they don’t even use. Read on to find out my thoughts on the Baby Einstein Activity table.
The Baby Einstein Curiosity Table Activity Station Toddler Toy is a two sided art and science based table packed with toys and gadgets for your little one to explore. It includes a board on top of the table. One side of the board has holes where your child can arrange gears; if arranged next to a spinning gear on the bottom, the whole chain will move at the press of the button. The other side of the board is a white dry erase board that can be drawn on. The table plays more than 65 melodies and teaches simple words in English, Spanish or French (it actually taught me a little bit of French since I know absolutely zero). The volume is adjustable and can also be turned off entirely. Additionally, the table legs are also removable so that it can be played with directly on the floor.
This activity table is suitable for ages 12-36 months. The Activity Table originally retailed for around $69.99, but you can typically find it at around $52 on most sites these days. The table is 23.5 x 17.5 x 27.6 inches in dimensions, and it weights about 5 pounds. It does require 3 AA batteries to operate, which are, of course, not included.
- Grows with your child
- Extremely entertaining and engaging
- Easy to move around
- Many areas of play, with multi-faceted uses
- Great for multiple children to play together
- Lightweight – Slides around (for babies just learning to walk/stand, this can be a bit of a challenge) and could easily tip over
- Table legs come loose easily
- Gears can be challenging to keep together
- One reviewer mentioned kids getting their fingers pinched in the gears. We never experienced this, but it made me hesitant to purchase initially, and I do see how it could happen given the way the gears spin.
Overall, my kids really do love the Baby Einstein Curiosity Table Activity Station (even my older child who is outside of the age range listed still plays with it alongside of my son) and will play with it for an extended length of time. I do wish it had a bit more weight to it for younger kids, as it slides around even on carpet when they are playing with it. My son loves play with the gears and pressing the big red button that makes them spin. It think this is a really great way of teaching cause and effect through play. There are tons of buttons and lights, which was a huge draw for my son. Another big plus is that I personally do not find the sound effects obnoxious. While I wouldn’t call them soothing, they don’t grate on my nerves, which a huge plus with kids toys. Generally, I do think it is much more engaging than many other similar activity tables I have seen on the market, and I think it is worth the price.
