  • Poorly painted- looks like my kiddo actually painted it himself (two different orange paints on one part). My son lost interest after a couple days and has never used it again. Aug 23, 2019

  • This toy has been great for teaching my son what he CAN hit. Seems to be great quality, but have had to confiscate the hammer on occasion when my toddler gets too crazy. Aug 07, 2019

  • Cute toy. Baby is working on hand-eye coordination with it. Jul 18, 2019

  • Great learning tool for my son. My only issue is that one of the pegs have slightly cracked over time otherwise it is pretty fun and amusing Jun 13, 2019

  • The kids enjoyed it but I wish they all could have went down at once. It frustrated the kids after a bit. Jun 12, 2019

  • I love this bench- it's great that the pegs stay put so you are looking for them all of the time. My son loves using the hammer. One draw back- the hammer is wood and will damage other things! Apr 03, 2019

  • My son loves this Mar 06, 2019

    Got this for my 12 month old. I think she has to be a bit older. She does try to hit the little pegs, but at this age she usually stands on it. It's a great toy for 12+'s development. It's a must have Feb 06, 2019

  • Love this little wooden bench. Little ones love to pound on it and watch the pegs go up and down. Melissa & Doug make great products and this didn't disappoint. Jan 06, 2018

  • Got this as a gift, wish we hadn't. Hammers and toddlers are no good together. Nov 27, 2017

  • Daughter loves this! Oct 05, 2017

  • Great toy! I especially love that the pegs stay in. Perfect for little ones who aren't quite ready for a tool bench. Jun 01, 2017

  • The "pounding" seems a little too easy? My 18 mo wasn't interested in pounding with the hammer & used his hands instead. Sep 08, 2016

  • One of my son's favorite toys Dec 15, 2015

  • Great for learning coordination, but I may like the old-school one better now that the baby has this one down. Jul 15, 2015

  • OK. I wish we had the original wooden peg version. My 15 month old gets a annoyed that he can not get all of the pegs down. Jan 07, 2015

  • Unlike the original one, this one is much more entertaining, as the pegs do not come out and when you hammer one side the other comes up. Great for both my kids 3 and under! Jun 17, 2014
