Great Toy for Tinkering Young Ones!
on December 11, 2014
This is a great toy! I purchased it for Christmas and I know my 4 year old will love it. I went through and assembled each one without reading the instructions to see how intuitive it is, and I was able to put them all together very easily. It might be a bit tricky at first for a 4 year old, but I think once they've assembled them they will be able to again. The parts fit together very well and easily, except for the spoiler on the car, it went in rather tight. Might have just been my set. The manual screwdriver has a slip-feature (not sure how you would call it) and it gives exactly when the screw won't turn any more so you can't over-tighten the screws. The drill does not seem to have this feature, but the bit turns slowly. I'm hoping the screws don't get stripped with this tool but it is VERY neat. It came with several extra screws which is wonderful. I will tuck those away until needed. I do with the motorcycle came apart more, or at least the wheels like the other two. Also, the instructions are NOT written for small kids. It just has simple diagrams that are small that show you where the parts go and in what order. Easy for an adult to understand, but probably not young children. It would be nice to have a diagram like the one provided, but colorful and on a larger scale, or maybe flash cards for each one. Wish I could deduct half a star for that, but the concept is neat. Most of the parts have to be put on a certain way so it gets the child to figure out the correct position. The plane actually has a little gear inside that must be lined up. Very cool. And I'm so glad I don't have to buy a container to keep it all in.
