Comments about Step2 Little Helper's Workbench:

This gift was for a male 2 yr. toddler. He's very interested in tools and what they can do, so this was the perfect solution for him to be able to hammer something and the plastic pegs were like real nails to him.

Comments about Step2 Little Helper's Workbench:

My son is 19 mos old and likes to climb on the bench. Sometimes he likes to pretend to use the hammer and such but other than that he is not that interested in it. My son is very active so who knows if in the future when he decides to sit still he may love it.

Comments about Step2 Little Helper's Workbench:

I bought this son when he was 20 months old. He normally loves tools (the real ones that my husband has), so I thought he would love this, but someone he wasn't really that interested in this product. Of the 3 months of owning this, he has only played with it a few times. It's one of his least favorite toys.

Comments about Step2 Little Helper's Workbench:

There are not many options for toolbenches that are appropriate for one year olds. My son loves to put the nails in. He hasn't figured out the wrench or screwdriver yet though. He does really like it. I just wish there was a little more to it. I was looking for the toolbench equivalent to all the little kitchens that are out there for one year old girls. For the price though it is great!

Comments about Step2 Little Helper's Workbench:

Got this for my son's first birthday. Unfortunately, he gets bored of it easily for the purposes that it was made. However, he has turned the workbench into a walker and pushes it all around the living room, uses the hammer on everything he can find, and finds the orange pegs make great teethers! Resourceful at that age aren't they?!

With that being said, I think he will enjoy it more when he is older just as my 2 1/2 year old daughter does. All in all, a solid product that's built to last and worth the price. I just wish it had a few more features to keep them occupied longer...

Comments about Step2 Little Helper's Workbench:

This is a very well built tool bench and very reasonably priced. He does not seem to enjoy it too much, but he is very "active" and doesn't sit still well. He is a climber, so he tends to use it as a step stool! :(

Good product for tool use development and hand eye coordination. Pegs, hammer and wrench are great. Screwdriver is hard for even an adult. My son is only 11 months and is probably a little young to fully enjoy this yet.

Comments about Step2 Little Helper's Workbench:

The Little Helpers Workbench was the only toy that I purchased for my grandson. I felt that it was very age appropriate for him and at a great price. He figured out how to use the screwdriver and to put the pegs into the holes and push them in without any help from the adults.
