Have you ever rushed your kid to the emergency room after he/she fell into the sharp corner of a coffee table? The shape of a coffee table may seem like a benign decision, but accidents do happen. This round table has no pointed corners to cause bruising and it features a distressed wood top that will hide the imperfections your child is sure to add. The wheels make it easy to move around for friendly wrestling matches or slumber parties.
