Lego Table Sized for Older Kids & Adults

The core demographic of LEGO are boys 5-12, yet furniture built for play is sized for preschoolers.

One family's quest to find a table that their grade school aged boys could comfortably use for building LEGOs ended with a simple modification of an inexpensive table. How to Make a Lego Table outlines how an IKEA table was transformed with LEGO building plates into a large table for kids (and adults) to use.

Historically, LEGO tables have been produced for toddler and preschool sized children, yet the core demographic of LEGO builders are boys 5-12. The traditional LEGO tables are too small for the average sized builder to sit and the LEGO table top does not provide enough building space for the older child. Using a standard-size table (and chairs/bench) to create a building surface, the older child or adult can access the table in comfort and have a larger building space.

Tables with baseplate surfaces can be used for building LEGO models with base support or creating cities and landscapes out of bricks. These areas are also good for multiple builders to work together.
