Eco Friendly Pounding Bench Deluxe



The pegs on the bench go up and down, playing peekaboo on this solid wood pounding activity. Non-removable pegs take turns showing their smiles while your toddler has fun naming the colors and enjoys practicing fine motor skills. A sturdy mallet is included.

This toy pounding bench from Melissa and Doug looks great and it has a BIG advantage – the pegs don’t come out (no more “hide and seek” with the pegs!).

Eco Cred

  • Made from solid wood
  • The pegs do not come out when hammered down, which increases the longevity of the toy (re-use for longer than a loose-peg toy)

Product Details

  • When one peg is hammered down, the opposite peg pops up (teaches action and reaction).
  • Improves colour recognition and fine motor skills.
  • The smiley faces on the pegs add interest
  • This can be quite a noisy toy, and may damage certain floor types.
  • Manufacturers recommend 3 years+  However many parents give it to younger children under supervision.
  • One issue with this toy is that although the toy is wooden, the bottom bits of the pegs underneath the bench are unfortunately plastic.  Although it’s a small part of the overall toy, this reduces the eco friendliness of the product.  This is offset by the pegs remaining in place – loose pegs get lost easily and thus reduce the lifespan of the product.   If you prefer, see my alternative suggestion – a fully wooden pounding bench which is beautifully made, with loose pegs.

Educational Toys

If I’m buying a toy for a child, I always try to make it an educational one, something they can learn from while they play.  It’s a win-win!
