Our eldest son had one of these (not Melissa & Doug) when he was little and he loved it. It lasted long enough for our second son to thoroughly enjoy it too so served us very well for about 5 years and then decided it had had enough of life - fair enough! (so excellent value for a toy!)

So we put this on the wish list for our 3rd son to get for Christmas and someone kindly bought it for him.

We are EXTREMELY disappointed in the latest version of this toy - very, very poor quality especially for a Melissa & Doug toy which are always more expensive.
The holes are now made much bigger than the pegs and then a little plastic bit is put in them to supposedly hold the pegs in place and make the journey through smoother when being knocked - I like the theory but it just does not work.
In the one we have only 2 of the pegs are held in place - the holes for the 6 others are too big so the pegs fall straight through.
Not surprisingly our littlest sees no appeal in only being able to knock 2 pegs through when the others just fall through themselves so its a complete waste.
VERY VERY ANNOYED!

Ordered this for my 14 month old granddaughter. Have had a few Melissa and Doug toys before and they have always been good quality but this is absolutely rubbish. The pegs are far too small for the holes and fall straight through. Today as she got it out of her toy box the red side fell off!!! Would have returned the product but as it didn't come in a box it was too much trouble to wrap it. My husband is going to try and repair it and see if there is any way of making the holes smaller.

I remember having one as a child. It was great fun to bash the pegs in so I bought it for my 18 month old son. The main problem with it is that the pegs can be pushed through the holes with no hammering action being needed which makes it rather pointless. Needless to say my son doesn't play with it much at all. Classic toy badly done.

This toy is educational only if an older child or an adult plays alongside a younger child and counts the pegs or names the colours. Otherwise it is "just" a great fun for any boy or girl who loves hammers, banging and making noise. I bought the toy to give my 2 year old a chance to practise precision in hand-eye coordination and in hope that he will leave daddy's real hammer alone:-). And yes to both and 5 stars to the toy!

Melissa & Doug Pound-A-Peg

The pegs in this Pound-a-Peg just about fall through the holes, with no assistance needed from the hammer (which is used for much more creative and fun things!). There is no resistance in the holes. The toy looks nice and colourful but is badly designed and boring. My grandson used to just poke them through the holes, but even then they merely fall through. You can buy much better versions than this, I am sure. Would have asked for a refund but left it too late.

We have a number of Melissa & Doug toys in our house, and bought this as we knew that they were a good company; however, this toy simply isn't up to their usual standards. We thought that the first one that we received was simply faulty, as one of the pegs fell straight through to the other side without even being touched. We contacted Amazon, who sent a replacement, which seemed fine; however, two days after we received it, one of the pegs on the replacement toy fell straight through (after not an awful lot of use). Over two months, four more of the pegs have come loose, so for the moment at least, our little boy can only "pound" three pegs, and will eventually be left with no pegs to hit!

This is an attractive product, it seems pretty sturdy and our little one likes playing with it; however, all of that is irrelevant given that it doesn't do what it is meant to do owing to a design fault that needs to be addressed. A disappointing product from an otherwise good company.

It's a nice Pound-A-Peg with vivid colors and as described! The wood made of seems really good quality and i mention this because I bought other wooden toys for my boy but in the end you get what you pay! I bought this in a discount price so I am really pleased! The last thing that i want to mention is that the colors so far don't seem to fade of or to get any kind of decaying by the abuse that my son does to the toy :D! He doesn't play it normally but that doesn't have to do anything with the toy( he just pushes with his hand the pegs and not pounding them :)). I am really pleased by this product! The packaging wasn't something nice. It was not for example inside a box, but only with a plastic cover. So if you want to gift it, you will have to do the job! :)That's the only negative for me..

Nice sturdy peg board apart from the holes are just a tad too large for the pegs so that they hammered through the holes to easily. Nice bright colours.
