The Xylophone Pounding Bench is a two-sided wooden toy that offers little ones a few different activities. On one side there's a wooden xylophone, and kids can make their own music using the wooden hammer. When you flip the toy over, there's a shape sorter with a square and a triangle, and a ball that kids can use the hammer to bang through the hole. The toys even make noise as they drop down onto the xylophone. There's also a sliding peg star and a mix-and-match set of spinning animal blocks with a giraffe, duck, hippo, and bunny.
We love that this toy is on the small side so it won't take up too much space at home, but it still offers different ways to play. And developmentally, it helps with hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills while introducing babies to colors and shapes. It's a really cute toy, and it's environmentally friendly, which is a feature that some parents are looking for these days.
The Xylophone Pounding Bench is for ages 18 months and up.
This toy measures 9.5 x 5.5 x 6 inches.
