One side of the table is pre-grooved for use with engines, which is nice, but if your child has played with this table in the store or elsewhere with the tracks and "bells and whistles", the pre-grooved flat tracks are not likely to excite them or keep their interest (at least that was my experience with my 20-month-old).
We purchased several destinations and extra tracks for the table (for the un-grooved side),and are now trying to figure out how to situate them on the table. The destinations come with instructions for set-up, but you can alter the configuration to your liking/ needs.
Adding tracks and destinations to the table can get pricey... if you just want to start with one set for the table, I would recommend one of the adventure sets-- they are on the pricier side, but are also larger (take up more space on table) and have "exciting" features. From there, you can add other adventure sets, a simple Figure 8 or Starter Set (both of which are on the less expensive end)... as you combine and build on, you'll start to fill in the space on the table until you can add more on.
If you want to purchase multiple destinations, I would recommend starting with maybe 3-4 destinations at most until you can play with the configurations and see what will work for you. We probably went overboard and have about 7-8 destinations, so I am trying to figure out which features to use and will probably have a lot of "spare track" pieces as a result.
The tracks are not secured to the table, so if you have a younger child who likes to take them apart, you might find yourself building a rebuilding often. You can glue the tracks to the table, but then you are committed to that configuration. I got the 3M "Velcro" strips and tested it on a few areas to secure the tracks, and it keeps them in place but still allows me to cleanly remove the pieces if we choose to rearrange as he gets older and wants different pieces. Once I figure out how to configure all of the tracks I will definitely be securing them with the 3M strips.
Overall, great table, sturdy (sturdy enough to hold a toddler sitting/ standing on it- which was an unintentional "test" when I turned my back! Not recommended to have your child do that, but nice to know it is sturdy enough to hold them if they do!)
