    Mallet is very heavy and baby likes to swing, not a good combination! Oct 30, 2019

  • The pegs were too hard for my toddler to hit down so she quit playing with it and started doing other things with the hammer, then lost the hammer. The concept is cool but it just collects dust. Oct 10, 2019

    Such a great fine motor skill toy! My kids love hammering away. Seems like it will last generations too! Sep 20, 2019

    We got this as a gift, our son is indifferent to it. Aug 23, 2019

  • Toddler is almost 3 and has never been very interested in this toy. The most use it got was when he was learning colors. Favorite part is the hammer, which I had to take away to protect my home & baby Aug 20, 2019

  • My daughter loves it but has used the hammer to hit thongs and has smashed my glasses among other things. Kids love it but I wouldn’t recommend it Aug 06, 2019

  • Love this for toddlers Jul 15, 2019

  • My son is 9 months old and loves holding a hammer he tries really hard to hit the pegs but also loves pulling them out. Jul 02, 2019

  • Such a simple toy, yet they loved it. It really helped them practice hand/eye coordination. The little ones required an adult to insert the pegs for them, but as they grew, could do it themselves. May 21, 2019

  • Disappointed in the quality, normally love the Melissa and Doug products but this one comes with plastic parts that seem cheap. May 11, 2019

  • This was not constructed very well and we had to use our own glue to put it back together after only a couple of uses. May 02, 2019

  • We have this but my 15 month old only gets to play with it occasionally; she still hasn't grasped the concept of it but she loves all the colors and pushing the pegs. Apr 29, 2019

    Great for building coordination. Apr 08, 2019

  • simple toy but my son loves it. He likes to use the hammer and push the pegs through. good development gift. Apr 03, 2019

  • 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
