3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Idea, but Some Design Flaws, September 19, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kidoozie Cool Tools Activity Set (Toy)
I bought this for my son who is almost two and a half because he has a big interest in tools. I chose this one over some of the more realistic sets because he has a baby brother on the way and I didn't want to get him something with too many choking hazards. I also liked that this has screws and bolts so he can practice actually using the tools.

Pros-
-cute talking shape sorter
-screw driver, hammer, and wrench can actually be used with the accompanying bolts, screws, and nails
-cute carrying case to contain all parts

Cons-
- TOO LOUD! This toy does not have a volume control and when the child turns the gears it plays children's songs at a high volume.
- no on/off switch. It would be nice to be able to turn the sound feature off, so the child could just practice the mechanic aspects of the toy.
- Toy does not come with the molded plastic insert shown in the picture. My child can rarely get all of the tools to fit inside by himself.
- The drill makes realistic drill sounds, but the bit does not turn. How hard would it have been to make that happen?

My child is enjoying this toy, but it is still fairly new. If I had had a chance to try it out before buying, I think I would have picked something else.

Thanks for the helpful review, we were about to pick this one up till you let us know about the noise and the missing insert (it was actually one of our requirements that the set had a place to put each item in the set--kind of like a puzzle). Thanks!

Thank you, Thank you for this review. I do not buy toys that you can't turn off or turn the volume down completely. The last thing I need is to listen to some machine's ridiculous imitation of a child's voice over and over!
