Since the 1930's this classic toy has been been providing toddlers the opportunity to do just what they want to do! Pound and make lots of noise! Hammer the eight brightly-colored pegs into the bench, then flip to begin again on the other side! Simple, yet immensely entertaining!

NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 2 years of age.

My rating of Pound-A-Peg
Posted 3/23/2014 by Kathryn Sloan

This is for a gift. He didn't get it yet, so I am just guessing as to how much he will play with it. Seems to be exactly what I wanted.

Information about Pound-A-Peg
Posted 10/8/2013 by Shari Brown

The pegs fall out just when picking toy up as a whole. Not much resistance to pegs as you push down. Was really disappointed by this since we love other Melissa and Doug products.
Rating: 2
A fallout in peg performance is a sign of a defective product. Fortunately, Melissa & Doug is a manufacturer pegged as making things right. Visit the Returns & Exchanges Center for help, and everything falls into place. We contacted our customer promptly.

Review of Pound-A-Peg
Posted 9/18/2013

Pegs fall straight through the holes in the bench. I think she would play with it if it were made better, because she has shown interest in using the hammer on her blocks.

Random falling pegs are always benched. Get your game on and visit the Returns & Exchanges Center for sure assistance. We contacted our customer promptly.
