Was going to get DS a train table for Christmas b/c he's really into trains lately. Most say 3 and up due to small parts, and that's making me re-think things. He doesn't NEED one this year and it might be better to wait until we are (hopefully) in a new house next year, and by then, his little sib (due in Dec) will be a year old, too, and we won't have to worry as much about him/her trying to put pieces in his/her mouth. I'm leaning towards waiting a year, but will I actually miss the "sweet spot"? Do 3/4 year olds love train tables, too?
