To say my son loves cars is a total understatement! He loves to drive those little things all over the place. However, our walls were sometimes used as a launching pad, and Mama didn't like that one bit! So for Christmas, Ben Santa built a car table for our little Mr. We had the cute little car mat for some time. It got played with on occasion, but now that its on the table, he uses it ALL the time, amazing what a little 'ol table can do. It totally saved my sanity because he never drives the cars along the walls anymore! I think that was not only a gift for him but us also!
The trim along the top edge of the car table/mat is this bendable wood stuff. Not real wood. It's nice beceause it bends along the lines of the table easily when your constructing it. Plus, we loved it becasue its more forgiving if our little Mr. were to fall and hit the edge of the table.
