Your baby loves to bang on everything: the sides of his crib, his high chair tray, and every toy in sight. He can’t help it – it’s just so much fun to make noise!
The Hape/Educo Early Melodies Pound and Tap Bench adds a surprise to your child’s noisemaking fun: when he pounds a ball through the holes in the bench, the ball hits a colorful xylophone inside, playing a zingy little scale. Cool! Because the Educo Pound and Tap Bench has so many parts, it allows lots of interesting play patterns for babies and toddlers – they can pound balls through the holes, pull out the xylophone and bang on it, and roll and chew on the balls. Older toddlers will enjoy counting the balls, matching them with the holes by color, and exploring the different notes on the xylophone.
Playing with the Hape/Educo Early Melodies Pound and Tap Bench has plenty of developmental advantages for your baby: it improves his hand/eye coordination and fine motor skills, and teaches him about cause and effect, as well as basic problem-solving. The xylophone allows for early explorations of melody and rhythm. And finally, giving your child the Hape/Educo Pound and Tap Bench gives him a safe and melodious way to get out that urge to bang on everything!
The Hape/Educo Early Melodies Pound and Tap Bench is made with sturdy wood with non-toxic water-based finish, plus metal xylophone keys. For ages 12 months and up.
durable, makes sense for the child, and is enjoyable for everyone
My nephew really enjoys this toy, which makes me happy ;). I was looking for something musical that we all could enjoy and the sales person helped me make the right choice. Great gift for my little guy. (Btw the workers at the Fairfield Ct location are great! Very knowledgeable.)
Durable, creative, well-made, no electronics
No specific place to store the mallet
This product - the Hape musical bench - is simply awesome. No electronics, but it makes plenty of noise to keep our year-old twins occupied for long periods of time. The solid-wood balls and bench seem much more durable than the cheap plastic stuff found elsewhere, and we simply love the toy. I also like the versatility - the xylophone can be removed from the bench and played separately, no bench and wooden balls required.
