While these are very cute and I think would make great play things, the wood finish is rougher than I imagined and I worry slightly about my child playing with these until they are older.
I absolutely love the color scheme of these. My older child enjoys these, but the peg people are small and a choking hazard. She isn't allowed to use the when her little brother is around. I wouldn't purchase the peg people for children under 3, but if you get the set you can always just store away the smaller parts.
