This is awesome. We just took it out of the box and my boy loves it. He loves hitting things so I wanted to get him something that was okay to hit. The pegs have a platisc thing in the middle to keep them "in place" which mean he has to hammer then over and over to get them flat. This will definitely get a lot of use at our home. It does already have some scuff Mark's that my kid has made from hammering but the wood seems like itll hold up really well to it.
