Pound, Push, or Match the Pegs
Kids two and up will find their little hearts “pounding” over this classic childhood toy with endless appeal and durability. The reversible and sturdy wooden frame, eight vibrantly-colored pegs, and mallet encourage kids to pound the four pairs of colored pegs into the bench and then flip it over and repeat again and again. Kids may even push in the pegs in rather than pounding them. This toy promotes color recognition and matching, hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and creative play.

I would change the design, so that the pegs could fall free of the bench once they are through. That is part of the satisfaction that a child feels. But I do understand the rationale behind this part of the design: the pegs are less likely to get lost.
NONETHELESS, why can’t the old bench of the ‘50s be made? No plastic parts, pegs offered huge resistance, lasted forever. Wish I’d never given away the one my three boys played with for a decade, which my 3 siblings and I played with for two decades.
The pegs are held in place somewhat so it does take proper hitting for them to go through and they are also fully removable. The stands on the side are symmetrical so you can just turn it over once the pegs have been hit one way.
The wood pegs are totally smooth, my daughter loves to chew on them, the only non smooth bit is the hammer, the corners are.. well, corners.
It arrived with a red mark on the beech wood, about an inch in size. It wasn't a problem for me but perhaps if I was expecting it to arrive perfect it would have been.
She sat and just pounded and pounded ... I got out a crab mallet and everyone took turns helping her.
This was a last minute thought to buy to begin with because she was hitting my kitchen chairs with a crab mallet a week ago ... and this toy is exactly what she needed. I am very happy with this purchase. She took this toy home with her ... but I am going to purchase a second one to keep at our house.

This is an attractive product, it seems pretty sturdy and our little one likes playing with it; however, all of that is irrelevant given that it doesn't do what it is meant to do owing to a design fault that needs to be addressed. A disappointing product from an otherwise good company.
every day. :D
En tapant dessus, elles tombent donc doucement.
C'est excellent pour développer l'habileté manuelle des petits à partir de 2 ans. Le jouet est très beau, très doux, avec de belles couleurs. Cela peut permettre aussi de travailler les couleurs avec l'enfant en lui demandant de n'enfoncer que les maillets jaunes par exemple.
Si mon avis vous a été utile, merci de le dire ;-)
