Not much to it, worth about ten bucks
on January 5, 2013
Best Age: 2-4
- Power drill, can go forward and reverse to insert and take out three screws
- Odd shaped hammer, pushes in and pulls out nails (they don't come in/out smoothly)
- Caddy holds drill, screws/nails and hammer (but when drill is placed in caddy, you can't access the handle if bit is in, if out, it is still awkward and unbalanced to carry)
- The biggest drawback is there isn't much to do with this toy. You have three screws - that go into the caddy and three nails. You can't build anything with them, and you can only spend so much time drilling the same three screws in the same place. It gets about 5 minutes of action every now and then.
Would I recommend: No. I'd encourage you to save the money you would have spent on this to buy a workshop type toy, with more options for drilling/hammering into different places. This is the kind of toy that collects dust after the initial thrill wears off.
Best use: At a grandparent's house - where it has a small footprint in terms of storing it and would be fun to take out for a few minutes every now and then, instead of something to play with daily.
