We are providing a number of images that feature children at play. We encourage you to submit photos, video of your children at play with Nilo products so that all will benefit in our Nilo community. Thank you in advance for your participation in this regard! Nile Ernst, CEO.
Just got this one yesterday 2/6/17. Jonah enjoying life…and from what we heard…mom is too! Thank you so much for sending it in!
Below, my son Connor draws on our Theasel. It locks into our table with holes. Circa 2000.
Below, my daughter Morgan does the same as above. She’s around 6 here.
My youngest son Connor and his cousin Murphy play on our Block Mats which are Lego and Duplo compatible!
Connor and Morgan are at play with our Theasel in its puppet theatre use. We no longer produce the chair Connor is sitting on…we found our Stool is the best source of a sitting piece for play at our tables. Morgan sits on our N32 Toy Chest, storage and seating in one.
Below, Morgan is about 7 years old and plays with Playmobile on our table along with our play board at the time. The play board has been long replaces with our FREE N65s Graphic Play Mat with every N51 series table purchase.
Connor plays with our N99s Slide Hammer ‘N Nails set, hitting nails into and out of our table with holes. Our N95s Nails have been redesigned now and are totally non-chokeable. You can build Zoobs off of them! It is a great pastime for both girls and boys. In fact, this was Morgan’s favorite thing to do on our table!
Hmmmmm, is our table strong enough? Below is a photo shoot we did many years ago. Our three children are Blake, center back; Morgan to his right and Connor in the orange shirt in the front. We got them all to smile! Hard to do, yes! Anyway, thanks to our design our tables are rock solid and will last for generations! While you can find cheaper tables out there for a little less money….this baby you’ll keep for your grandkids once your children are out of the nest and on their own!
Below, the kids are playing with Play-Doh and Puzzles! Thanks to our white melamine “easy to clean” table top…it is ideal for many other activities like this! Many tables out there do not have a surface like this, they feature some printed play board or graphic image which does not cut the mustard! Some folks ask if its good for dry erase markers. Its not, however, if you get even permanent marker on the table top you can use Ajax or Comet to carefully get that mark off. Note, you are cutting through the melamine so you should not do this regularly!
Below, is our incredible Standard Poodle, Jazz! Ain’t he cool sportin’ his Nilo cap! Seriously, he was more human than he was dog! Very smart, too! Came from a blood line of Grand Champions! He’s in dog heaven now but we’ll never forget him! Notice how 2 Nilo Bins can be under our large N51 table. Also, our N32 Toy Chest is shown in the background. If you have two Bins flush at the front of the table and the Toy Chest up against them under the table, the Toy Chest would stick out about 6″. We have another photo below to show this from the side so you have a better idea. Also, one N26 Nilo Bin can go under our smaller N34 table but it would stick out about 1″ on both front and back. The Bins were designed to go under the N51 large table, not the N34 but you can do it as mentioned. The green Nilo-Jax we have decided to retire. We didn’t sell enough of them to make it worth continuing.
The photo below shows Blake and Morgan playing on our original N48 large table (circa 1994). As such, the red Lego brand Duplo baseplate is shown here. We have since made our larger N51 table and we also have our own baseplates (we call them Block Mats). See them under Accessories on our web site! Brio Mec is also shown, the wooden construction set. Note, we offer our N99 Slide Hammer ‘N Nails and also our N95 Nilo Nails to hit nails into and out of our table framing! Find them under Accessories on our web site.
Below Connor is hitting “out” the nails with our dual purpose Slide Hammer! This was our daughter Morgan’s favorite thing to do so don’t think this is just a guy thing! Girls love to bang on things, too! Note, you can purchase Zoob to snap onto the heads of our nails for another construction pastime! We offer a few different sets under Accessories. Of course, wooden blocks….what could be more fun than that! I read an article that a child’s brain has more stimulation staring at a blank wall than watching TV! I am hoping more and more parents realize the importance of manipulatives, wooden blocks, art, etc., in their child’s life! It is proven that to miss this important developmental step in a child’s life will make them not do as well in math and sciences. So…….turn off that TV and ditch that cell phone! (Note, we have since redesigned our Nails to make them absolutely PERFECT and NON-CHOKEABLE!)
