The Nature to Play collection by Rusty Keeler speaks the playful language of childhood while encouraging children to engage with nature. Bring the early childhood environment outdoors where children will explore with all of their senses and can incorporate loose parts and natural elements into playtime. Thanks to the open-ended essence of the Nature to Play collection, children can initiate their own learning experiences and engage in physical activity that is good for their minds, bodies and spirits. The weather-resistant furniture in the Nature to Play line, made from thermally modified wood by Thermory, stands up to rough-and-tumble fun and unpredictable outdoor elements, growing with children as they develop.

Beautiful table

4 stars
Sturdy and beautiful, this is a wonderful addition to our kindergarten and TK playground. The bin is significantly smaller than the table with the double bins, and thus the table itself is smaller. Also, the bin is screwed into the table, unlike the other table where the bins just set in. The extra little shelf on the side is a bit odd and the kids don't really utilize it. Because the top is not solid mud gets in all of the cracks between the boards. It looks nice but a solid top would have been a bit more practical. Overall a very nice product which will hopefully last for years.

Perfect size, durable, and loved !
