Such a wonderful toy! Creativity, color recognition, fine motor skills, patterning, and just plain fun with power tools! My 2.5 year old had no problem using the drill rught from the start. Love love love!
It’s a hit!

… not sure if my 6 year old have ever loved a toy this much

I’m not sure if my 6 year old have ever loved a toy this much. After opening it I think he worked on it for a few hours straight. A week later he still isn’t bored with it. He doesn’t really like the design cards and really just prefers to drill. I probably should have bought one of the sets that you can make things with rather than just drilling into a board.
… and drill activity by Educational Insights is such a great learning toy for toddlers
This design and drill activity by Educational Insights is such a great learning toy for toddlers. My son absolutely loves it, he can’t get enough. Not to mention everyone who comes over wants to play with it as well. It’s also a toy that you are able to share because there are enough different colored screws and different screw drivers that you are able to have multiple kids helping and doing it at the same time. There are 4 different ways you can get the screws in which is nice with different tools to teach the kids how to work with them. There are also tons of different patterns to follow which helps them learn to follow instructions and also teaches them to count and plot and map the design. My son is only 4, but he’s able to do a good majority of the designs himself, or with a little bit of help. He’s very independent and loves making his own designs as well. This is a great toy for learning colors, counting the spaces, designing, and also hand eye coordination for working with the tools. All around a great toy for kids!
Really fun for 4.5 year old and barely-2-year-old (recommended for ages 3+)
This is a sturdy, fun activity for the kids. There are patterns they can follow by my kids prefer to make their own patterns. (OK, the 2 year old likes to mostly use the drill!) The drill is easy for kids to use – my barely 2-year-old can use it well, despite having a hard time holding it steady. She hovers above the bolts and starts the drill – it catches and screws them in easily without too much effort lining it up so it’s pretty satisfying for her. My 4.5 year old enjoys making patterns, using the drill, etc. Disclaimer that this toy is for 3+, though I cannot much imagine a 2 year old having any issues, none of the parts are very small at all. But it’s a comfort if you have little ones around that this would be an OK toy to have in their vicinity without too much worry of swallowing pieces.
Great toy and gift – hands-on play!
Both my 2 1/2 and 8 year old have alot of fun with this. It was also a hit as a Christmas gift for my sister’s kids ages 2 1/2 and 4 1/2. I can see it really growing or adapting with different ages. My littlest loves the mechanics of changing the bits and using the drill, but they all have fun screwing and unscrewing the bolts by hand, too. My nephew received his (similar foldup set) first, and my son, understanding, continued to prompt me to get batteries for his drill. I have never seen such a huge and instantaneous, elated, open-mouthed smile as he made the split second the drill turned with the battery. He loads and hauls the bolts like a precious commodity behind a toy tractor with a trailer, too. This toy moves from room to room and between my son and daughter’s room during the day. She likes making designs with it, too, and the two discuss the designs and colors together. I foresee them having fun with the pattern cards, and making more designs, too. I like that this set had 120 bolts – more than enough for the whole grid. I was happy to buy this with the reduced cost packaging for about $8 cheaper, too, around $24. Great value.
Great toy for toddler and preschooler!
I recently purchased this as a gift for my two year old son’s birthday. It was promptly hijacked by my four year old daughter! It’s a good thing the set comes with hand tools, because they can both happily play on separate spaces of the board. As it turns out, the manual tools are actually a better option for the two year old, as his little (90th percentile) hands can’t quite wrap around the drill to depress the trigger AND aim it with any kind of accuracy. He’s happy just to make sounds with it at this point, and actually enjoys screwing the bolts in with just his hands as well. It’s such a great toy for practicing fine motor skills! My four year old is just getting into recognizing patterns, and while she hasn’t used the provided cards yet, she enjoys alternating colors to create her own patterns. My only complaint about this toy is that it doesn’t fit in the toy storage bins we use, but I can’t hold that against Educational Insights.
Great toy for young kids!
My 2 and 3 year old boys absolutely love playing with this drill set. It is very easy for them to use with minimal help. The 2 year old actually requests to just sit and play with this by himself and it keeps him occupied for a bit! They haven’t been interested in trying to recreate the picture patterns included but their 6 year old sister has. She enjoys playing with it too and loves to use her creativity to design different things.
