Description: The long-lived play desk is still a preschool favorite! Similar to it's predecessor, #176 School Days Play Desk, this desk has a chalkboard and slots to slide the accessory cards into on the chalkboard. The cards have small words cut-out and enable child to draw stencils of the letters with chalk, or place the appropriate magnetic letter in the cut-out holes. The magnetic letters, chalk, and eraser store neatly in a compartment that is sealed with a yellow roll-back door. The accessory cards store in a compartment under the lift-up chalkboard compartment. The desk itself is red with a white top and an attached carry-handle for portability. Designed for children ages 3 to 8 years old.

*Tip for collectors: The magnetic letters and cards are different than those used in the #176 Play Desk. The letters are larger with squared ends, and the cards have words with larger holes to accommodate the larger letters.

Accessories:
  • FPT44940 - Blue base, white top lap play desk with a chalkboard on top that lifts to reveal a storage area inside for the accessories.

  • White cardboard activity cards with a picture and word cut out. The accessory alphabet letters can fit into the cutouts:
