Kids discover cause and effect with this 2-in-1 bench, combining the fun of a hammer and tools bench with the joy of playing music! The colorful balls can be pounded through the holes with a hammer, creating musical sounds as they bounce down the xylophone bars. When your little maestro feels like having more of a hand in music composition, the xylophone can be pulled out to play tunes on the bars with the hammer. One of the hallmarks of Hape toys is their high-quality, durable instruction, all showcased in the high-quality birch, maple, and child-safe finishings of the Pound and Tap Bench. For ages 12 months and up.
