When the pound a peg we bought didn't live up to expectation, I called melissa and doug and they sent the pound and roll, no questions asked. My kid loves it. Wants to play with it throughout the day, and is certainly developing hand eye coordination as a result. Love the company, Love the toy.
Our little one has enjoyed this toy so far. We likes to push the beads around. We gave it to her a little early at 10 months and wasn't sure if she would want to figured it out, but she has played it.
From about 2 months he's shown interest in bead mazes. I bought this when he was around 3.5 months old, attached it to his Highchair tray and we had an instant hit. He's been playing with it now for about 2 months and will sit and play hyper focused on the toy for almost an hour (could be longer but we normally are done in the kitchen after an hour). Now that he's discovering that things can go through and under he's become very interested in how the beads go under and through along the wire. I've also watched his motor skills develop with this toy, he moved from the larger beads and is now very interested in the squares with the cut outs and how the other beads go through them.
