  • I usually love Melissa and Doug toys but this one fell apart within a couple of weeks. Splintered wood plus a baby isn’t a great combo. Aug 30, 2020

  • It feels well made, but the paint does come off of the pieces pretty easily. My daughter likes this for a few minutes but then looses interest. Good toy, great price, just not a favorite at our house. Aug 02, 2020

  • Not as good of quality as the versions from years ago, as orgs can easily push through, but still sturdy and helps develop good fine motor and visual perceptual skills Aug 02, 2020

  • LORDY! This toy is a lifesaver! We are foster parents and this toy helps to get those frustration feelings out. We so appreciate the quality of Melissa and Doug toys, and this one does not disappoint! May 13, 2020

  • Loved this for my little kits. Great for practice with their aim and hand eye coordination. Apr 25, 2020

  • Great for hand/eye coordination. Didn't keep my kids engaged for very long, but they still enjoyed using it. Feb 11, 2020

  • Heavy and harmful if the whole item falls on the toddler's foot. The pegs dont go all the way through so my toddler gets frustrated and pushes it out with hands. Jan 08, 2020

    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
