The Scoop

Pound the eight colorful wooden pegs into the wooden frame, then flip it over to repeat the activity again and again! Included are a wooden hammer and four pairs of pegs--great for color matching.

Why I would not recommend this product.

By Debra

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Melissa & Doug Pound-a-Peg Classic Toy:

The idea is just what I wanted, but the product was very disappointing. The pounding pegs are too small and can easily be pushed down by hand. My 2 year old grandson was quickly bored and needed no time to figure out that the hammer is only a prop. The hammer is not even needed to pound the pegs. E pegs are easily moved by hand. Disappointed and not happy with the product or the purchase.

I would not buy this product again

By Disappointed mom

from New Albany, IN

Comments about Melissa & Doug Pound-a-Peg Classic Toy:

I was really excited to get this for my 18 month old. He was just as excited as I was when I gave it to him. It was pretty easy for him to hit. The only problem is that the pegs are really loose. They slide out very easily and are just as easily lost. Very disappointing as it's hard to keep up with an 18 month and all the pieces to toys. I expected much more out of Melissa and Doug as their products are usually made high quality.

Pegs chipped after little use

By Cathy

Comments about Melissa & Doug Pound-a-Peg Classic Toy:

This toy was given to us as a gift. One of the pegs began to chip (not the paint but the actual wood) after using the toy only a couple of times.

      The kids loved this toy....for the first few days. Now, the pegs fall through, so the point of the toy is lost. Have many Melissa and Doug toys at our house...this one is a disappointment!

      pegs too loose

          bought this for my 1 1/2 yr old for Christmas. My older son had one of the older ones with the split pegs, but we gave it away.

          This one is useless - the pegs (well, all but two) just fall out when you pick up the frame. No need for the hammer unfortunately. I know its not expensive, but none the less a waste of $$.

            Gave this to our 18 month old grandson for Christmas-- the pegs fall right out. Now we'll have to find something similar, since he likes to hammer.

                Gave this to our grandson for Christmas-- what a disappointment! He would have loved it it the pegs had only stayed in the holes.

                Very very poor quality. Now I'll have to find something similar, since he likes to hammer.

                Purchased this for my grandson's birthday at first he loved it. At the 2nd or 3rd time the pegs wont stay in, you don't even need the hammer! I have purchased several M&D products, sorry I purchased this one. Waste of time and money.....

                    We bought this as a gift for our 18 month old son, and while I normally do not write reviews, I was very sad that the toy did not function as promised by the 'high quality standardsl' of Melissa and Doug. I, too, had one of these as a child and was very excited to share the experience with my son, but was very disappointed to find that there is no 'pounding' necessary as the pegs fall through the holes. Sadly, this was a waste of money and will probably be thrown away as it appears this toy is cheaply made no matter where you purchase it; therefore no need to replace it.

                      My son received this a 2 yr birthday gift. As with all M&D toys, this is a really big hit with him. He loves to push them out, put them back in and pound away with the hammer. Helps him build is control of the hammer to hit the top of the peg. It is fun to watch him as he is thinking/planning on what he should do next with it.
