Fisher-Price Drillin’ Action Tool Set Review
If your children are curious about your DIY tools and what they are used for, they are sure to enjoy having their own tool set. Kids just seem to love playing at the things adults do as a part of their regular day!
The Fisher-Price drill that’s included in the Drillin’ Action tool set is designed to fit comfortably in little hands so they can pretend to fix or build things in a realistic way. It’s designed for preschoolers from 2 years old and it’s simple and easy to use.
The drill and its bits are made of durable plastic that has the same overall shape as a real drill. It also has the forward and reverse turning actions of a real drill. The hammer is also realistic (except for being made of orange plastic!) One side can be used to pound nails into the tool box, and the other side hooks them and pulls them out.
This Fisher-Price tool set can help to develop fine motor skills in children, because the different tools must be handled in a certain way in order to work. Kids will learn co-ordination and manual manipulation. Early problem-solving skills can come into the equation too, something that’s essential to their development into adulthood.
Of course, while this Fisher Price tool kit is nicely realistic, you can’t really use it to build and repair things 😉 This might disappoint some children who will want it to do more than it does, but most kids will enjoy playing with the drill and you may find that it sometimes becomes a gun too!
In summary, this is a good toy for encouraging developmental and imaginative play. The drill keeps some kids occupied for hours and it could easily become a favourite toy. A great choice for preschoolers.
Note: at the time of writing, prices on Amazon UK are inflated. You shouldn’t have to pay more than £20 sterling for this.
