        This is similar to a toy I played with as a youngster in the 40's. While I don't remember exactly what it looked like, I remember that whenever you pounded something into the box (I think it had five sides- including the top) something else would come out. I've always thought of it as a metaphor for life: just when you think you've got something fixed, something else goes wrong. This could just be a product of my imagination, but I'm pretty sure that there actually was such a toy. Any thoughts??????

        In the meantime, my 18 month old grandson loves the Deluxe Pounding Bench: it deals with colors, and hand-eye coordination in holding the hammer, and hitting the pegs with the end of the hammer instead of the side. I don't think he thinks about the philosophical aspect, however.

        We were excited about this toy as the pegs don't come out so we wouldn't lose them, and the levers push one up when you pound the other. But within a couple days, the pegs are loose and just fall back and forth, defeating the purpose of the toy.

        Comments about Melissa & Doug Deluxe Pounding Bench:

        I purchased this for my baby when she was six months. She immediately knew exactly what to do with this toy. Of course with parental supervision she banged away at the colors, and all while getting excited that another color will pop up. It's awes that the parts don't come off, because at this age babies get bored quickly and they'll start coming up with new games like "let's see what this color taste like" ... so that's a major plus!

        My 1 year old daycare boy isn't particularly fond of this pounding bench. Although I love it because the pegs can't get lost he prefers the classic pound a peg. He doesn't play with this much.

        My daughter loves pounding away and getting surprised when the color she likes pops up or "hides." Great classic toy
