My 2-year-old daughter loves anything related to construction, so I thought she'd enjoy doing some hammering. Boy, was I right! The day I gave her this toy for the first time, she played with it for what seemed like hours. I had to tear her away from it. Months later, she still loves it. It's such a simple, well-designed toy. The design of the swivel part--so that you can flip over the pegs and have at them again--is so elegant. I think this is one of the best toys I've ever bought. And it seems to speak to a primal part of a toddler!

I wondered if it was just my love of wooden toys making me order this, or if my 22-month-old grandson would like it as well. I needn't have worried -- this has become one of his favorite activities at my house and he has discovered a lot of ways to play with this beautiful, simple, well-made pounding toy. He loves flipping the peg board over and pushing the pegs through with his thumbs then sticking them back in their holes, as well as simply pounding away at them. The colors are lovely and the pegs are smooth and he loves to carry them around with him and put them through openings in other toys, like his shape sorter, or add them to towers he builds with his blocks. The hammer is beautifully simple and seems to appeal to the "Thor" in him because he carries that around for general banging on things, although we did have to have a little talk about banging on the tv screen. It's a simple but attractive toy that sparks his imagination in new ways every time he comes to visit. I never cease to be surprised at the places he finds to lovingly squirrel away the pegs (sofa cushions, under my lazy-boy, behind the books on his bookshelf, in the pot of my African violet, at the bottom of the umbrella stand, and his favorite spot: the garbage can.) Good for pounding, good for many sessions of hide-and-seek.

This toy helps me to work on my fine motor skills after I had a mild stroke. I'm 72 years old..

All as described and nicely designed. 13 month old likes it and uses it one way now seeing as hammering is still a hard skill, and usage will evolve as different skills develop.

I chose this pounding toy over a similar version with balls because enough of chasing balls around the house already! The pegs can roll too but I like that they neatly drop below and stay there until picked up. The design is really beautiful and the flip over feature is genius. However, we received a unit where the pegs are not evenly sized and therefore go through at much different speeds. The yellow can be easily pushed through with a baby pinky finger and the blue is hard for me to pound through (green somewhere in the middle). This isn't really a terrible thing. I guess good for the baby to learn different techniques for different problems but he ends up just favoring the easy one and I don't think they were designed to be different sizes/difficulties.

I bought this based on reviews, and don't get me wrong, i love it. I love that it's made of wood, I love that the pegs don't fall out, and how easy it is to flip the peg-portion over when you've hammered them down. All that said, the only reason I gave it four stars is because you have to be pretty strong to hammer those things down! I bought this for my 10-month-old nephew and I don't think he stood a chance -- and he's a pounder! I'm 30 and have to really put some muscle behind it to move those suckers. I'm pretty sure our 2-year-old son would be able to do it, but just bear that in mind when buying for littler ones. Still, a great purchase and one he'll be able to play with for years to come!

Our youngest DS is a physical kid. We gave this this for the holidays last year. He still loves it - the hammer is a great size for a toddler hand, and the pegs offer just enough resistance that he seems to love the sense of accomplishment when he's pounded them through. Simple but elegant, we've been impressed.

I had been searching for a hammering toy to give my 18 month old son a way to satisfy his desire to hit and bang. This toy is beautifully made. The colors are pleasing, the toy is all wood and the simple flip to re start design is brilliant. I would highly recommend.
