This is such a fun toy! The table is free standing so your toddler can play actively. Each time they push a button, a puff of air and music comes to life, causing motion in the tubes you lay on top. The three different buttons all function to allow different sounds and different motion. It comes with a handy-dandy storage net attached right to the table. What is even better is the fact that you need not use the table at all for imaginative play. The tubes with different toys inside can be shaken, rattles, and rooled to your heart's content. You can stack them on the table, or on the floor. You can blow intothem ans see what happens. This is truly a diverse toy, chalk full of learning value, and exposure to classical music such as "Flight of the Bumblebee." The best activity table for your money.
