Hammerboard - when?
Here we have highlighted 3 types of hammerboards suitable for children of different ages.
Best wooden hammer board
Here we have highlighted a lot of examples of a good hammer board for children. They are all made of wood, which is good and durable. Look through the list and see if you can find the right hammer board for you.
Why a hammerboard is a popular toy
A hammer board is fun for kids in several ways. Hammering and making noise is always a hit with kids. Watching the nail being hammered down by its own power is a great experience for the child. In addition, it is a game that can be repeated again and again. The hammer board strengthens the child's development, especially hand-eye coordination, when hitting the spot with the hammer. This naturally becomes more difficult the smaller the hammer. In addition, the child's fine motor skills are put to the test when she has to place the nails in the small holes. This can be difficult, so it is a victory for the child when she succeeds. Older children, from around 2 years old, can also practice colour recognition if they are given a hammer board in bright colours.
Classic toys - great gift idea
A hammerboard can be said to belong to the category of "classic toys". A wooden hammer board has been a popular toy for many years, and almost all children love to play with it. That is why a wooden hammerboard is often found under the Christmas tree or among birthday presents. The hammerboard does not take up much space and is easy for most people to find room for in the home.
Hammerboard - when?
Fortunately, there are hammerboards for children of almost all ages. We recommend the easiest hammer boards for children around 1 year old - a hammer board is a great gift for a 1st birthday present. For younger children, we recommend a hammerboard with balls instead of nails. These are easy to hit with the hammer and you don't have to hammer as many times before the ball falls down. Plus, it's easy to put the ball back in place.
For slightly older children from around 2 years, we recommend a hammer board with nails. These are more difficult to hit, and therefore place greater demands on the child's coordination skills.
For older children, we recommend an old-fashioned hammer board. These are much more demanding and there's plenty of opportunity to be creative. This type of hammer board is also known as a nail board. Children from 4-5 years and up to 10-12 years of age will find these nail boards fun and challenging.
