What is that child's game called where they hammer tacks into a cork board?

My ds plays with it in nursery and I have googled it but cannot find the name. He hammers gold tacks into a cork board and they hold shapes in place. Thanks in advance as I'm hoping to buy it for Xmas.

I'm pretty sure they have this in Tiger but I can't remember the name.

From bitter experience don't use it in an area you'll be walking around barefoot in - I used to have a habit of wandering around the classroom with my shoes off when the kids had gone out to play and stepping on the tacks fucking hurts!
