    Comments about Educational Insights Design & Drill® Take-Along Toolkit:

    I have two boys, 4 & 2, and they often fight over wanting to play with the same toy. This Design & Drill Workshop is one of the first toys they can play with side by side. It includes two battery operated tools and two hand operated. So you could even have more kids playing along as well. It comes with lots of screws, which are easy to take in and out. This is great for the hand-eye coordination for my youngest. Beyond just open play, I like that the set also came with a design guide. Lots of different designs, that range in easy to hard.
    As other's mentioned, the case is a bit cumbersome. The set come with so many bolts, that it is nearly impossible to get them all back in the case and close the case. That being said, my boys play with this toy a ton and we just leave it sitting open in our playroom. My boys love it, so I do too!

    This is a very fun tool for my 5 year old son to use. We have been working on patterns and this is perfectly engaging for him to use and learn with. What 5 year old boy doesn't like to use tools?!! We highly recommend it!

      Comments about Educational Insights Design & Drill® Take-Along Toolkit:

      Child (with special needs)enjoys satisfaction of drilling screws independently. Drill sound and bright colours add to to enjoyment.

      Child uses the toy independently to create random 'patterns' but we also use it to encourage the development of colour matching, spatial awareness and turn taking.

        Comments about Educational Insights Design & Drill® Take-Along Toolkit:

        My boys love the Design & Drill Take Along Toolkit. They can spend hours just drilling and un-drilling. Everything is included (except the 3 AAA batteries required) and everything fits nicely inside. There are tons of bolts and three different bits, as well as an activity guide with 10 designs and of course the electronic screwdriver. The carrying case is the activity board in which you drill into. Since my boys are tool fanatics they love practicing on the different bolts and designs.

        As far as educational toy goes, I would say it is. I have my boys count out the bits, colors, and listening to directions as we work on the different design ideas. It is also good for practicing holding the screwdriver steady and drilling and removing the bolts. They also have to make sure they are using the right bit for the different bolts.

        Overall, the Design & Drill Toolkit is perfect for fun at home as well as on-the-go. It keeps kids busy and there is nothing I would change about it!
