The Melissa & Doug Wooden Pound-a-Peg toy is a great classic toy. This hammer toy with pounding bench is perfect for toddlers. It’s low tech and high in fun for young kids. Simply hammer the pegs and when all have been hammered down, flip it over and starting hammering all over again. This toy is great for developing eye hand coordination and some basic motor skills
Our boys have spent more time playing with this toy than our girl, but she still loves to hammer also. Right now, our 1 year old boy is in love with this toy and just hammers all the time. You can’t go wrong with this classic toy for toddlers.

The 502 piece construction system of the Struxx Robotrixx is an impressive building system for kids age 6 years old and up. Includes gear box, motor and wire system for 3 types of sounds, movement, motion sensor and light-up eyes. This is highly rated by customers on amazon. Kids close to age 6 will probably need some adult assistance, but older kids should be able to complete most of the building on their own based on the simple 3 part system of a ball, a socket and a rod that click together.
