toy cars ? the table

There are some toy cars ___ the table.

The first preposition came to my mind was “under”, which I think most people would think of first. Can we use “in” here? The board and four legs may form a space. The toy cars are right in there.

What other prepositions do you think are also situable?

In the picture the toys are under the table, regardless of the space under it. So no, you cannot use in when describing toys in that picture.

Additionally: The cars are between the table legs

If you had a table like this, then you could use

Get the balls. They are in your table. enter image description here

But even then I would use Get the balls. They are in your table drawers.
