This is the best poundy bench I saw when shopping for them in person and I'm glad I bought a durable, solid wood bench.
I don't know why there's no toymaker on the planet that can get this toy right. I have two other versions of this pound-a-peg notion. One of them is unusable because it is so hard to get the pegs hammered thru the holes, it just sits in the basement. Wonderworld Hammer Bench. I literally can't move the pegs through the holes without putting my full upper-body strength into it.
The other one is a brand I can't remember at the moment and its holes are so irregularly-sized that thru some of the holes, the pegs just slide without being whacked at all. One or two of the holes is properly sized.
This Melissa and Doug offering is similar to the second one I mentioned. There are eight pegs and eight holes. I think two of the holes are properly sized and the others are either way too loose or pretty much too loose. It is maddening that they pay such little attention to quality control.
Even the Melissa and Doug toys that I really love (mostly the puzzles) have QC issues.
Melissa and Doug really need to look in the mirror and decide what their mission is. For now, they seem to be cruising on an ill-deserved reputation as a high-quality toymaker.
Testing by Health Canada has revealed that the surface paint on the toys contains barium in excess of the allowable limit.
Some forms of barium are safely used in medical and commercial applications, while other forms of barium can be toxic, causing adverse health effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and cramps as well as more severe symptoms. Children's toys coated with paint containing barium in excess of the allowable limit are strictly prohibited in Canada.

You had to set the toy on a table in order to hit the pegs properly. Wouldn't work, just sitting it on the floor.Published 1 day ago by Jane Austen

The colored pegs on this toy fall through the holes. There is no resistance to even allow you to hammer on the pegs. Read morePublished 29 days ago by Colleen Sullivan
This is great! The only downfall is that a few of the pegs are too small for traction and slip through, making them useless for hammering. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Emily MacKintosh
