The baby was a little too young when we got this, but now at 1 year old, she loves it! I like the removable xylophone. It’s two toys in one! I highly recommend this toy! It’s very sturdy, safe, and well-made. Please mark if you find my review helpful. Thank you so much!

We gave this to my daughter for her 1st birthday and she LOVED it. It was the perfect gift for her developmental stage. She favored it over all her other gifts (and other toys) and spent long sessions playing with it daily. She’s 15 months now, and still loves playing with it. This is a great bang for your buck toy. The balls are just the right size for her hand, and loves those on their own (she has many balls, but favors these). She’s always carrying them around the house. Pushing the balls through the holes is really fun to her. You have to push just a little to get them to go through, it’s a good challenge, but it never frustrates her. She always claps when they go in. The xylophone tinkling as it rolls down is very satisfying. It’s also fun on it’s own to make music. Then the hammer option is another element that she thinks is fun. All these things help her develop her motor movements. It’s a smart toy. It combines the Montessori ball drop, music, hammer, etc. Can’t say enough great things about this toy. Quality is fabulous and it looks nice. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. (My mom’s dog chewed up one of the balls, but we were able to order a replacement set that fit perfect from Hape.)

We have triplets – 2 girls and a boy – and this is the first toy I purchased for them that made me realize I need to buy 3 new toys otherwise they go absolutely nuts and fight each-other for everything. They couldn’t get enough of this thing when I first brought it out, and when it comes out again in the toy rotation. Fortunately there’s at least two functional parts to this, so at least two of them can be happy while the third one gets mad and the battle begins.

Lots of moving pieces so you have a few different toys in one. My 16 month old enjoys rolling the balls around and pushing them through the holes. He also likes pulling the xylophone out and trying to put it back as well as hitting the xylophone with the hammer to make noise. You can take away the hammer if needed and the toy still works well 🙂 Most importantly the balls are too large to be put in my toddler’s mouth. We’ve had to put away other toys like the egg shaped shakers and small balls because everything gets shoved in his mouth but this toy is ideal in that the balls are slightly too large.

We gifted this toy to two grandchildren around age 10 months and it is a hit. They love the balls, pushing or whacking the balls through the holes, the sounds and just holding the toy and examining it. It holds attention for more than typical time. The toy is very well made. The colors are bright. No choking hazards. This is a good improvement over the “cobbler workbench”. The key difference in addition to the sounds is that this toy does not require the use of the hammer to have fun. That means younger kids can use it.

When I ordered this product I didn’t realize it would become a daily part of out lives. My Great grandson absolutely loves this toy. I love the fact that it is sturdy, the balls are large enough not to present a choking hazard, and the xylophone is a great first musical instrument tool. he loves to take the little hammer and beat the balls until they roll down onto the xylophon. He plays with the xylophone within without the box and the same for the box and balls. Its not a quiet toy, but it’s not overly noisy either. Another plus. Kudos to the creator!

My son loves this toy. He’s only 9 1/2 months, so he doesn’t understand what the mallet is for, but enjoys pushing the balls through with his hands. He also likes holding the xylophone. This is a very well-made product and he should get many months of enjoyment from it. There are some small parts that hold the xylophone together, so it should be checked regularly to make sure they are tight. Great buy. I put a can of Gerber snacks next to it for a size reference.

I can’t say enough good about this toy. We gave this to my one year old for Christmas this morning and he has spent hours playing with it (whenever is older siblings aren’t stealing it from him). The xylophone actually has a full scale and good tone. The colors are bright and beautiful. He can’t quite hammer the balls through but he loves to push them through with his hands.
My 12m daughter loves it. My dad wanted something non-electronic for her so I found this. She plays with it everyday and opts to play with it over her “tablet” and dolls.Note: My Australian shepherd has an obsession with the wooden balls that came with it. She steals them daily if they are left out and buries them in the backyard. Hape sells an affordable replacement set (Amen!) which I really appreciated.

My 10 month old daughter has loved this toy since she was 8.5 months old and she stillEnjoys playing with it. It’s very well built and has two toys in one as the xylophone can be taken out and played with alone or placed under the balls to make a fun sound when the bales fall on it after hammering them.
