Rated 5 out of 5Â by casmir Good for young toddlers
I purchased this for my daughter when she was 2 1/2 years old. It would have suited her better at an earlier age, probably 18 months, (maybe even earlier) because she outgrew it really fast. She enjoyed the toy for the first six months, then only played with it occasionally after that.
The pegs stay in the holes snugly, but not too tight where she couldn't move them with a little pressure. The pounding was a little noisy at times as we have wood floors and high ceilings and my daughter can be a bit aggressive with a hammer. Even with all the abuse it held up very well.
I definitely recommend this toy! Great for counting, hand-eye coordination, colors, sorting, muscle development, etc.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Lexie3 Disappointed with this
I bought this Pound-a-peg toy for my grandchildren. We have an old one that my kids used 25 yrs ago but it only had two pegs left in it. The new one is very disappointing because the pegs are so loose that they are just about falling out of the holes. My 1 yr old grandson was able to just push/pull the peg up and down with his fingers. It certainly didn't hold his attention very long at all. Very disappointing.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by TinkerDaisy Pegs are too small for the holes
We bought this for my 2yr old son for Christmas. The pegs are too small for the holes so they side right through without being hit so he's not able to use the hammer at all on the pegs. The holes need to be smaller or the pegs larger to be able to hammer them at all. He has several Melissa & Doug toys that he loves so we were very disappointed with this one.

The pegs don't always stay in and my daughter can push them through with out the need for the hammer that's if they stay in! Certain pets
Will only stay in certain holes
Cheaply made toy really disappointed. I remember having something similar as
A kid and I remember it being nicer and actually having a need
For the hammer.
