Toddler tantrum incoming? We've got this. Time to unveil My First Wooden Hammer Bench. To them, it's something to bash and take out frustrations on. But what's really happening, as they hammer away at those five CONSCIOUSLY CRAFTED wooden pegs, is the development of fine motor skills and hand-to-eye coordination.

And let's not over-analyse the appeal - sometimes it's fun just to thump things with a hammer.
