Sturdy, well-made, simpleNov 07, 2010
By Chris Bryson
This is exactly what I wanted: a well-designed, well-painted hammer board with no bells or whistles for a kid to just hammer the heck out of when she was needing to "express herself" (i.e., hit something other than her parents). This is the closest to the old-fashioned one you knew and whacked as an energetic, frustrated toddler/teenager. The pegs put up a good degree of resistance, the hammer is well-sized and well-made, the whole thing flips over so one can start over again immediately, and the experience is satisfying, even for Mom and Dad. There's even a hole to stick the hammer in. Watch out, kitty. This is the one you want.

Favorite toy by farDec 10, 2011
By Mama Bird
My 8 month old son showed a lot of interest in a similar toy at a friend's house so I chose this model because it is not made in china and the mallet didn't have a sharp square head. The handle of the mallet is shorter than most I've seen and thicker which I like since my son prefers to stand and wave things around a lot. I'm pleased with The quality and size. Unlike other reviewers, I feel the pegs are just as tight as they should be (using some kind of clear gasket in the holes). He doesn't have the faintest idea that the mallet is for pounding the pegs, but I expected that and am glad he will get more function out of the toy as he grows. For now, he had a hammer that doesn't make me cringe when he stands up and waves it around. I also am pleased with the company's dedication to non toxic toys since everything a child this age comes into contact with inevitably goes in his mouth. I will be buying more from this company.
Update, my son is now almost 17 months old and this by far his favorite toy. He has mastered the hammering action and flipping the board to continue his fun. This has held up very well to being banged repeatedly every day for months. I love having something he likes so much when he needs his hammering activities appropriately focused. He likes being able to pound them completely free of the board so we get the extension activities of stacking the pegs, counting them, discussing the colors, and putting them back into the holes. I also get to chase the pegs when they roll off and under odd things, but it's worth it for all the enjoyment he gets from this toy. I'd buy this again, but I am very glad I didn't wait until the 18 month mark.

great toy!Oct 18, 2010
By Anne Marie
bought this when our son was a little younger than a year old and he has played with it every day since. he is just now understanding that you flip it to continue hammering the pegs down. the color is good but it does leave marks on the hammer. despite that they have held up well. well made. love wooden toys and feel like this was a good buy.

Blocks are difficult to pound thru.Aug 16, 2010
By Mela Rose
I love the way this is constructed. Very good quality, but the pegs are too tightly positioned in the holes.
It's practically impossible for me to pound the peg thru. I'm trying to figure out how to file down the insides
to make them pound thru a little more easily.

QualityDec 13, 2012
By Love to shop
This is great quality and doesn't seem to be too hard for my 17 month old to pound the pegs. There is some tension but that is the point. I like that it is made with non-toxic materials.
