Brian is really handy and has done a ton of projects around our house. I’m hoping to become more handy, and I definitely want the boys to grow up being comfortable with tools. Brian’s tools are just too big for their little hands, but Red Toolbox provides a series of tools for kids, along with great kits for projects to build.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and Red Toolbox is a great unique gift idea – the line includes a variety of tools ergonomically designed to fit a child’s grip as well as original carpentry kits that kids and parents can create together, allowing them to spend valuable time together while learning new skills. The kits are reasonably priced & can serve as a memorable – and affordable – Mother’s Day present.
We got the chance to review their tool set, cordless drill, and jewelry box kit:
I am SO impressed with the quality of the tools. These are really nice, just as nice as “grown up” versions. Obviously C is too young to use the tools right now, but although the box specifies ages 8+ we will let J use the tools (just not the saw!) with close supervision and help from us. He was SO excited to have tools “just like Dad!” and had to examine the drill immediately. Doesn’t he look like a little pro?
We let C hold the hammer for a minute – you can see how the size is really nice for kids – the handle ends where the photo is cropped.
We are planning to work as a family to build the jewelry box this weekend, and I think this is at the heart of Red Toolbox’s mission – I love their motto, “Quality time in a box.” Working on projects like this as a family is a great way to learn to work as a team, and it’ll teach the kids to take pride in things they’ve created. J is really looking forward to working on it!
I will post a photo when we finish so you can see the final product. I love this as an idea for a Mother’s Day gift!
