Engage little ones with this Melissa & Doug Pounding Bench that's beautifully constructed from high-quality, solid wood and child-safe materials. The classic little pounding bench features eight brightly colored pegs that play "peekaboo" as they go up and down. The pegs are non-removable and take turns showing their smiles while your toddler has fun using the sturdy, durable mallet. The toy is entertaining for kids while they get to practice naming the different colors of the pegs. It also helps promote eye-hand coordination, cause and effect, and fine motor skills. The wooden pounding bench makes a great gift for toddlers and preschoolers ages two and over for hands-on, screen-free play. For more than 30 years, Melissa & Doug has created beautifully designed imagination- and creativity-sparking products that NBC News called â€œthe gold standard in early childhood play.â€ Today, Melissa & Doug is proudly partnering with the American Academy of Pediatrics to foster early brain development and help children build important life skills through play.
