Want to encourage a toddler to become a handy man or handy woman? If so, the Kidoozie Little Builder Tool Belts are a perfect toy for tots from the age of two years old and up. It comes with safe and colorful versions of the most common tools needed to do repairs around the home.
Kidoozie Little Builder Tool Belt
The tool belt comes with a cute little belt to hold and organize all of the tools in the set. The tools include safe versions of a:
* Screwdriver with two heads
It also comes with a play pager, so the busy working tyke won’t miss messages while he or she is busy following mom or dad around on repair projects. This is a great toy to encourage imaginative play and motor skills, and it can also be used to play dress up! Since all of the toys can get stored inside of they sturdy and realistic canvas tool belt, it can also help teach young children the basics of staying organized and keeping their toys (and tools) picked up!
These tools are soft enough to be safe. This is important because some toddlers might decide to imitate an older handyman in the house and start pounding on walls or furniture. They aren’t hard enough to hurt anything.
They also aren’t hard enough to hurt anybody just in case your budding repair person decides to pound on the cat or little sister. Of course, this is a good time to teach your young one that this is a very bad idea!
On the other hand, the toy tools are strong enough to hold up under average use by a toddler. The only real complaint about this set is that the tools do look like toys and not realistic tools. That’s why this might be a good choice for a toddler, but it might not be the right choice for a four- or five-year-old child who would prefer something a bit more useful and realistic. These tools don’t really “do” anything, but that is why they are a good choice for a very young child.
One warning to consider is that the heads to the screwdriver are fairly small. If you think your toddler might put them in his mouth, or you have an even younger child around, it might be a good idea to hold this part of the set back.
Is This Tool Set A Good Toy?
Most people will probably buy this set for little boys, but lots of little girls like to pretend to build things too. In that sense, it is a pretty good toy for boys and girls. It can also be used as part of a costume, so it might be a good choice before Halloween or another sort of costume party.
The tools don’t actually work, but they are sturdy and harmless, and they certainly do work as toys! This seems like a pretty popular choice as a gift.
