  • Nostalgic toy. The pegs don't stay in line to get punched through and one of the sides came unglued and fell apart after not too long. Mar 13, 2019

    Great way to help little ones with eye hand coordination while having fun! The downside is after some use the hammer starts to chip and leave wood pieces everywhere. Jan 20, 2019

  • Just a simple, fun toy! Jan 02, 2019

  • Best mini peg table, only one my kids like! Nov 21, 2018

  • My daughter got this for her first brithday! Great for coordination and also great ool to introduce colors! Oct 24, 2018

    Haven't tried it with my toddler, but when my older kid played with it we used it every single day! And it was a lot of fun! Will definitely buy it for my 2nd kid! Aug 22, 2018

  • My kids do love this, but the hammer is dangerous with twins- have had some hits to the head. We took it away but they still like to push the pegs up and down. Aug 15, 2018

  • Another classic toy that I grew up playing, and now my kids get to play with! Even without the hammer, my little one likes pushing the pegs from one side to the other. Jun 23, 2018

    Pros: wood so durable. Cons: did not hold attention as long as I was hoping. May 20, 2018

    My son loves to sit and hammer the pegs! Colorful and holds up great after all the banging! Feb 07, 2018

  • My kids have really enjoyed this toy buuuut it’s loud and someone is bound to get a finger smashed. Feb 01, 2018

  • My daughter loves this, unfortunately she also loves to take the pegs out and now we have lost about half of them. Would be nice it they had a way to stop them from coming out of the hole completely. Oct 17, 2017

  • built poorly. the pegs fall through before my son has a chance to hammer and he just gets frustrated. Sep 30, 2017

  • On of my 18 months fav toys Jan 16, 2017

  • Son is so interested in putting the sticks in the base! Oct 01, 2016

  • Our son loves to bang on all toys so this one was made for him. He loves to bang the pegs out and it has been durable for us thus far. Sep 22, 2016

    Kids just take it all apart and lose all the pieces. Needs to be a way for them to stay in so they don't get lost. Jul 29, 2016

  • Baby hasn't shown much interest. I like it more than her, but it is cute. Mar 08, 2016

  • One of the few toys that seems to keep my LOs interest consistently. We find the pegs everywhere. He often times can be found toddling with at least one in his habds Dec 28, 2015

  • Great toy but the paint started chipping off in big chunks! We've gotten rid of those pieces and are now down to 5 pegs! Oct 15, 2015

    Hand eye-coordination at its best. I love toys that take no batteries and have to be "played" with to work. Jul 14, 2015

  • Definitely helps with hand eye coordination Mar 05, 2015
