The Design & Drill® Socket to Me set has been great addition to our construction and building type of toys in our home! My 3 1/2 year old son plays with this set often and likes it a lot because it’s a kid version of a tool he has seen his Daddy use! I for one love that this toy encourages my son to be creative, learn the name of the tools and parts he’s using, and it is developing those fine motor skills! Another pro is it’s completely battery free. No lights or overly loud sounds needed to provide lots of fun and learning for any child.
This set comes with 1 Socket wrench, 4 Shaped activity boards, and 30 Multi-colored bolts. The wrench is the perfect size for my son and I would imagine any other preschooler. He’s had no issues in handling. What”s really neat about the wrench is that it has a forward and reverse switch. When you turn it a certain way while attached to a bolt, it makes a very similar sound to what actual ratchet tool would sound like! The bolts provided are to be attached to any of the 4 shaped activity boards which include a Robot, Rocket Ship, Boat, and Race car. The bright colors are super kid appealing too!
My son has played with this set quite a bit and hasn’t grown bored in the least! He’s often pretending to be a fix it guy. The set is quite easy to use for him. He simply picks one of the shaped activity boards, places a bolt into a hole on it, takes the socket wrench and screws it in or takes it out depending on his aim. My son also uses the boards as toys after the bolts are in place. Currently, I can see that the Design & Drill® Socket to Me™ set is great practice for wielding a wrench when he’s older!
I love pulling this set out for my son when he can’t spend a lot of time outdoors or if he’s just needing to have some quiet time. It’s been a real win! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Not just boys but girls would probably like this set too. The set is made well and seems to be of quality. It’s held up well after weeks and weeks of play. It’s a total winner in my book!
