Pound down on musical delight!

Three vibrant spheres fit into three slots above a colorful keyboard ramp. Give one a pound with the hammer and - POP! Dingadingadingading!

The wooden ball goes rolling down a ramp of delightfully ringing keys and out of a hole on the side - What an exciting ride!

But don't stop now - There are still two more spheres to go.

Once baby's had enough fun hammering and rolling, you can take the bells out for them to tap directly on the keys.

    Review for Early Melodies Pound and Tap Bench
    Posted 2/6/2015

    This product was given as a one year old birthday present. It was the hit of the party. Both the boys and the girls from age range 1-3 wanted to play with it. It was easy to use helps develop upper extremity motor skills.

    Great Toy
    Posted 12/5/2014 by Danielle Henderson

    At a year old, she didn't get the concept of hitting the balls through. She would push them with her hands. Now at about 2, she's fully aware how to whack that hammer! She loves playing with the balls and the musical instrument. Great sturdy product. Would buy again.

    My rating of Early Melodies Pound and Tap Bench
    Posted 11/18/2014 by Kayleen

    I sent this toy to my grandson in Maryland. It arrived while I was visiting and everyone was impressed with the toy. My grandson will turn one year old in another week so he hasn't actually played with it yet, however, he loves music and I'm sure he will love it.
