This review is from: Melissa & Doug Deluxe Pounding Bench (Toy)
A pounding bench,sounds good doesn't it,the product title invokes images of many happy hours of play with an item of sturdy construction built to take a beating. One of the reasons i bought this toy was because i'd much rather have fewer toys but of a better quality than the mass (over)produced chinese blow moulded plastic that litters the market nowadays.I was really pleased to see my little girls face upon opening this on christmas day morning but my pleasure was short lived when on boxing day afternoon i watched as she picked it up by the top to move it and left both sides plus the rocking mechanism behind! I have since looked at the item and it appears a complete lack of any glue or a mechanical fixing on either the mortise or tenon has resulted in this unsatisfactory situation. I would not reccomend this product to anybody who might intend it for use other than sitting on a high shelf to dress a television set
