Detailed ReviewManufacturer's Description
Similar to the popular Lite Brite peg toy, the Quercetti Fantacolor Pegboard set includes sixteen different images and 48 brightly colored pegs that children can use to create a variety of pictures.
With each image, there are colors in different parts of the picture that match the colors of the pegs. The child has to figure out which color it is and then find the matching peg color to fit it in the picture.
A toy similar to the well-known Lite Brite toys, this peg board has sixteen different pictures and 48 vibrantly-colored pegs. The pegs are bigger, making them easy for small hands to handle and put in the picture. It’s very sturdy, with the board and pegs being made of durable hard plastic. The board also helps kids work on motor skills, specifically hand-eye coordination. They have to find the color peg that matches the color on the peg board, and then stick it in.
Users have said that it’s a very easy toy to store when not being used, as the pegs can be kept in the small plastic holder that can be folded up and slide right underneath the peg board. Because of its easy storage ability and manageable size, it’s also a good travel toy. By matching the colors, it helps children to recognize patterns.
Some users have said that the pegs are very chunky. However, it’s a toy made for children as young as two years old, so these bigger pieces are easier for them to grasp onto and play with. Another common complaint was that once all the pegs are put in, it still doesn’t look like the picture it’s supposed to be. The pegs are bigger and it is a children’s toy, so the pictures aren’t going to be incredibly detailed.

Although the pegs are bulkier than some in other sets of toys, they are still small enough that a child could put them in their mouth, so parents should watch their child if they are still at the age that they are putting things in their mouth.
