  • so much fun and practice for little hands. Not overly loud of annoying. Apr 25, 2020

  • This is one of my daughters favorite toys. She loves music! The only downside is the hammer. She likes to carry it around and I'm afraid she will fall with it in her mouth. Feb 03, 2020

  • Received as a gift for first birthday. The balls are very heavy (hurt if thrown at you) and the hammer isn't my choice for a baby toy. I ended up taking it away from my daughter. Jan 24, 2020

    This toy was a hit. Love that it has several things to do in one. Just keep an eye on little one with the hammer, as it’s pretty solid and hard in case they use it on something other than the toy. Jan 19, 2020

  • You can do so much with this toy! Take the xylophone out or use with the balls, use the hammer on the balls or xylophone, work on matching colors with the balls, etc. Jan 03, 2020

  • My daughter loves this or could care less (she’s 1). I think it’s a great 2 for 1 toy and doesn’t take up much space. Jan 02, 2020

  • Well made, two in one wood toy. Has the Montessori style ball push. And a xylophone - the noise is gentle and not obnoxious. Sep 29, 2019

  • Love this toy. Helps with the concept of cause + effect which is very important for early toddlers. It makes fun noises and is great help as I reduce the amount of over stimulating toys as she grows Sep 10, 2019

  • Engaging! Apr 29, 2019

  • Great multi-use tool. Xylophone comes out to play with separately. It fun to hit the balls and watch them fall on the xylophone. Apr 10, 2019

  • Purchased this for my daughters first birthday this past October, she loves hearing the music the balls make when they hit the xylophone. Her 3 Y/O brother also likes to play with this toy. Feb 18, 2019

  • This is super adorable and the right size for both my 9 month old and toddler. They love playing with the balls and the xylophone. Jan 18, 2019

    Great toy, it's nice that you can take it apart so that they can play with just the balls or the xylophone. Jan 03, 2019

  • My so is a big fan of music so I got this for his first birthday. He plays with it often. Nice quality toy that I’d definitely recommend Jan 02, 2019

  • My 13 month old enjoys playing with this and learning really quickly to use the hammer to push the balls through the hole. Love that it separates so she can play music on it directly. Dec 06, 2018

  • Baby loves to play with the balls on their own, or the hammer on its own. The bench makes me nervous because it's light enough that she can tip it over easily but heavy enough to hurt. Jul 02, 2018

  • My son loves banging on the xylophone with the provided hammer or whatever nearby substitute he can find! The balls were recently hidden as they are wooden and he throws balls with some force. Jan 24, 2018

  • I love the durability and quality of this toy. My daughter seems to really enjoy playing with it too! Jan 21, 2018

  • Very well made has held up great, and my kids love to match the colors. However, the balls have since gotten lost, and nothing else is strong enough to make noise. A regular xylophone would be better. Jan 07, 2018

    Excellent for motor skills . The ball insert keeps baby busy for a while Nov 30, 2017

    My daughter has been playing with this for months. Now that she's older, she sorts and names the balls by color. Nov 22, 2017

  • Our baby boy loved hammering the balls through the holes, and even pushing the balls through with his own hands. The xylophone part was less used but overall great learning toy. Beautiful design. Oct 10, 2017

  • Great quality toy! This was one of my sons favorite toys when he was an older infant. Jul 27, 2017

  • This has been a favorite toy from 9 months to 18 months and going strong. There are a few ways to play with it, and it's been great for fine motor exploration. Apr 10, 2017

  • Great, well-made produce. Feb 24, 2017

  • This is a beloved toy in my household. It's delightfully multifaceted - there are wooden balls for rolling, clutching, and making noise on the xylophone, as well as a removable xylophone and mallet. Feb 22, 2017

  • This is a great toy. Well made and interesting in many different capacities. The xylophone is removable and can be played separately. Oct 05, 2016

    This is my daughter's favorite toy! She loves hammering the balls, playing on the xylophone, and rolling the balls around the floor. She received this gift months ago, but still plays with it daily. Apr 24, 2016

  • he loved hammering away and the balls were great. Just very loud and hard when thrown. Dec 04, 2015
