Children’s activity center

Hours of family-planned fun with this compact “home saver”

A separate little world for the youngsters of your house . . . helping to develop creative talents, and yet, confining their activities to an area of your choice. All this is wrapped into one attractive yet rugged entertainment center. Your children will have their own private stage for hours of fun and play . . . made of durable plywood that welcomes “rough and tumble” theatrics.

Beneath, a “roll out” platform will keep that miniature railroad always within easy reach, yet out of sight.

This entire unit is planned around family fun. It is designed so that all may enjoy a session at the theater with the children. When they’re asleep or away, other family members will find privacy for reading, sewing or comfortable relaxation.

Place it in the family room . . . living room even in a large bedroom.
