i bought the pound a peg for my sister's baby grandson who is 14 months old and he loves it. i played with one when i was little and so did my kids. i'm so glad they're still being sold. i would recommend it and would recommend your website as well. you have a wide variety of fun and interesting items to choose from and at good prices too!
Some of the holes in the "bench" are so large that the pegs simply drop through...no hammer required. The whole point of the toy is to have the hammering. I would have preferred the pegs be too tight rather than too loose...just right would have been really nice. Very disappointed in the functionality. Other than that, appeared to be well assembled; colors were bright as pictured, etc.
Given that the pegs just fell out without using the hammer, we had to reorder, but given they gave us free shipping and didn't want the item returned, it was okay. The new one worked much better. But certainly not the quality we expected from Melissa & Doug toys.
This toy is fantastic quality and colorful. I bought this for my 11 month old and it is probably a bit to old for her since she just eats the hammer or pegs but they have no chipped paint or issues. I'm happy with this product.
