Buy this toy it is fun and a good height, and for some reason, they love it.
Educationally: The toy so far is meeting my expectations. My son is saying "ball" from time to time while playing with the tower, and manipulating the balls through the holes with the mallet helps him work on his fine-motor skills. And, as his ability to identify colors improves, the tower will be a good tool to help him differentiate between the various colors of the balls, mallet, and tower.
In agreement with the con(s) posted by other reviewers: The only problem I have with the tower is the fact that it and the balls and mallet already look beaten up. Because they are all wood, I have no doubt they will stand the test of time with my toddler. But, aesthetically, it literally took just a few minutes for my son to have all of the pieces looking pretty worn out from just normal play (no biting, scratching, etc.). Following my review, I'm going to try to upload some pictures.
My disagreement with some of the other reviews: This toy is designed with children 2-7 years of age in mind. My son is just a few months away from his 2nd birthday. So, I was comfortable buying the tower and letting him play with it right away. But, I've noticed some of the people who gave this toy a bad review posted their comments based on children who were WELL BELOW the age recommendation for this toy. Therefore, I do think those bad reviews are completely unwarranted.
On a good note, this toy is not useless without the mallet. A good firm slap on the ball sends them tumbling through the tower with a pleasing wood on wood sound, which may be annoying to some, but I find it soothing. The balls are easily lost and can be turned into projectiles if one isn't careful. Also, even with short term mallet use, the balls are dinged up and so is the top of the tower. I can't imagine what they would look like with long term use. There is also a plastic ring around each circle where the balls rest so you can "pound" them, these plastic rings seem to wear out over time. This makes the ball rest deeper in the hole and will probably become useless at holding the ball at all in a few years. I guess time will tell. Also, this is an occasional play toy for my son, it is not one of the toys in constant rotation, so the wear is not from constant use.
Otherwise, it is a very entertaining toy, especially for a younger audience, but just as likely to captivate the adults.

Good pounding block toy. A corner of the hammer splintered off in the first day of use (hence three stars), not the quality I expect from this brand.Published 1 day ago by Matt Lund
