Legs easily detach for playing on the floor. Imported. 16Lx16Wx14-1/2H".
This is a happy, noisy toy that should amuse most toddlers. Everything that can be touched reacts in some way, from a trombone-playing frog to a book that sings the alphabet. Our favorite is the colored keyboard that sings each color you press. The tabletop can be placed on the floor for those still in the crawling phase, or can sit on the included legs for a sturdy surface and leaning spot for little ones who are new to walking. If there is any fault with the Learning Table, it may be that it has too many features: each element of the table reacts in two different ways, depending on whether it's in Learn Mode or Music Mode. (Modes are switched by flipping the page of the book mounted in the center of the table.) Though this means more fun stuff for kids to hear, the mode concept is not one that they can be expected to understand, and the effect of the toy's inconsistent reactions is likely to be confusion. --David StoeszSee all Product description

1. The Fisher Price table is shorter than the LeapStart table and baby seems to be able to pull up on it at a younger age. Baby can also sit at the Fisher Price table easier because it is lower.
2. Both have stable legs and do not tip over when baby leans up against them or pushes on them. Both have legs that can be removed for floor play when baby can not stand. (We never used it this way because our daughter was early to stand.)
3. Both have a learning mode with ABC song and counting to 10 song and a musical mode.
4. In the musical mode the Laugh and Learn table plays tunes to familiar children's songs. It has a traditional feel to the music. The LeapStart table has music based on the different instruments on the table such as a banjo tune, a sax sound, etc. and it has a jazzier feel to the music.
5. The Laugh and Learn table has a food theme and looks like a set table. In the learning mode concepts such as color, shapes, texture, manners, shapes, open/shut, empty/full, peek-a-boo, and naming of common items such as apple, blueberries, banana, juice, etc. The LeapStart table has a musical theme with instruments such as a piano, maracas, sax, violin, and banjo. In the learning mode concepts include colors, shapes, high, low, on, off, hello, goodbye, etc.
6. On the Laugh and Learn table the parent has to change the mode. On the LeapStart table the child can change the mode by turning the page on the book in the center of the table.
7. The Laugh and Learn table has a bowl in the center that spins and can hold favorite objects. The LeapStart table has a small purple door that can hold favorite objects in the indentation underneath the door.
As a parent, I like the LeapStart table more. The music is parent friendly and even after repeated use, it does not annoy adults. I also like the different musical instruments and musical sounds that are introduced. That said, my daughter (now 9 months) likes the Laugh and Learn table better. She likes putting objects like small balls, Cheerios, and her pacifier in the bowl in the center. She also likes the peek-a-boo napkin with the peas underneath which says "Peek-a-boo. I see you." when she opens the door. It makes her laugh. Another favorite is the spoon rattle that can be removed from the table and the alphabet letters that float in the water sealed in the bowl that move around when the bowl spins. This is her favorite toy. She does play with the LeapStart table at her Grandparents house now, but her attention span is short with this toy. She can play with her Laugh and Learn table for long periods of time.
An important point for parents: the voices and sounds are very pleasant, and not likely to become annoying, at least not for a much longer time than most noise-making toys.
One item to note: the product listing indicates that it needs 4 "C" batteries -- the product I received uses 3 "AA" batteries. I think this is good, since AA are easier to find. It doesn't seem to be hard on the batteries -- I haven't had to replace them yet, and my little guy has used the table a LOT.
The assembley was EXTREMELY simple, all you have to do it attach the legs to the base, if you like. If your child can't pull up, then you can leave the legs off. I knew this was a smart buy when I realized how easy it was to assemble!
When we first gave it to her, immediately she pulled up and began banging on all the different music options! She even wiggles and dances to the music!
I even sing along to the music, it's great stuff, not at all like most children's musical toys.
It's extremely sturdy and has helped my daughter with her balance and pulling up.
It also has 2 sound levels, and you can turn it off of course. I've changed the batteries once, and I've had it for a little over a month now, with my daughter playing with it SEVERAL times a day.
Fast forward three years to 2009.... this toy continues to delight my second and third grandchildren Danny and Isaac. If the table isn't in the family room they will both go searching for one of their favorite play things. Still on the original Duracell batteries!!!
