the toy is as described but my 10month old didnt seem that bothered with it. would be better if you didnt have to turn the hammer around when bashing for the noises, its also a little heavy so you have to watch your baby with it and make sure the other toys will withstand a beating from this hammer. all in all not a bad item but i wouldnt recommend it.
My god son seems to like this wee toy, almost as much as his dad who he keeps hitting with it! It's a little bigger than I expected, almost 9 inches total, but he still manages it fine at the age of 9 months :D
