A Design Twist on a Classic Toy
A beloved classic toy gets an exciting new twist with this deluxe pounding bench. As the colorful, non-removable pegs on the bench go up and down, they play peekaboo, taking turns showing their friendly smiles while the child has fun practicing fine motor skills. And you’ll enjoy that because the pegs are attached, they can’t get lost. A sturdy wooden mallet is included.
Cause-and-Effect in Action
Children delight in striking a peg with the mallet and watching one on the opposite side pop up. Once a child has seen this cause-and-effect in action, he or she will enjoy predicting which peg will pop up next. As a child develops hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, he or she will also be learning numbers and colors by counting the pegs and naming each color as it pops up.

But . . .
You are basically giving your child a miniature of Thor's hammer. Not a hollow plastic hammer, mind you. No, no. This is a toddler weapon the great god of thunder would approve of. Two solid wooden pieces held together very well. The head of the hammer is sculpted to allow attacks from many interesting angles. Great for the toy. Not so great if your little one might decide to go "a-viking" during a playgroup, family get-together, or school function.
Like the mighty Mjolner, this hammer throws well, flies fast and far, and can kill the mightiest of trolls. Or televisions. Or PC's. Or Grandma.
So . . . the only reason I take a star off is because of the deadly weapon that comes with this awesome toy. Maybe it should have been fastened by a cable to the toy, Melissa & Doug? It's not cool that parents have to do this thinking for you. But we love Grandma. Having our toddler turned Thor send her to the hospital is not our idea of fun.
If your child is meek and kind and dependably non-violent, go for it. GREAT TOY! If your little one may just be a conqueror of lands reincarnated into this tiny body, please beware the hammer!
I'm usually empathetic towards the typical difficulties companies have putting out products in the marketplace and getting everything right, competing isn't easy. But this is unacceptable and should never have happened. Just poor, poor, quality controls.

The pegs are pretty colors that my toddler loves to point out. She also likes the faces on the pegs. It works perfectly. As they pound one peg down, an opposite peg comes back up.
Heavy duty and well-made. Glad we got this one.
We never had the issue I've read here with paint chipping, just little dents in the wood-no big deal.
HOWEVER-after four months, my son realized that when the peg was hammered all the way down, you can pull it out the bottom. Now all of the pegs have been pulled out and a few were recently tossed in the toilet...time to toss it! Bummer! If the pegs were only slightly longer, this wouldn't happen...

My brother and I had a more traditional wooden pounding bench when we were children, and it was one of our favorite toys long after we outgrew the suggested age range. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Real
Well made & durable. Really like the pieces are connected and won't be knocked out and lost. The hammer could have been better--basically it is a block of wood attached to a dowel.Published 4 days ago by Gracie's mom
