A beloved classic toy gets an exciting new twist with this deluxe pounding bench. As the colorful, non-removable pegs on the bench go up and down, they play peekaboo, taking turns showing their friendly smiles while the child has fun practicing fine motor skills. And you’ll enjoy that because the pegs are attached, they can’t get lost. A sturdy wooden mallet is included. Children delight in striking a peg with the mallet and watching one on the opposite side pop up. Once kids have seen this cause-and-effect in action, they will enjoy predicting which peg will pop up next. As they develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, they will also be learning numbers and colors by counting the pegs and naming each color as it pops up. The Melissa and Doug Deluxe Pounding Bench Wooden Toy makes a great gift for kids 2 to 4 years. This product measures 5.25" H x 10" L x 5" W and includes a sturdy wooden mallet. Add the Melissa and Doug Wooden Latches Board to round out the developmental play and learning experience.
