Product Description

CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

Children will love using the Design & Drill Activity Center to create their own designs, or following the set's colorful activity cards to make pictures and patterns--from trains and boats to flowers and fish. Just snap any one of the drill bits into the reversible power drill or the screwdriver handle, grab a handful of big bolts, and turn on the learning fun. Twenty colorful activity cards (10 "make-a-picture" cards and 9 "follow-the-pattern cards") provide young learners with tasks from simple to challenging. Complete set includes one reproducible blank grid for "make-your-own card" fun. The activity board features 100 holes for hours of design fun! Three interchangeable drill bits (flat tip, Phillips, and socket) work with both the power drill and the screwdriver handle. The tough, lightweight power drill is sized just right for small hands. Includes three drill bits and features forward and reverse action PLUS realistic sounds! Drill bits also fit into the screwdriver handle for kid-powered fun. A sturdy combination box/open end wrench gives children another fun way to remove the bolts from the activity board. 120 big bolts (24 each in red, yellow, blue, green, and purple) stimulate early learners' imaginations.

It's powerful fun at home or on the go! The sturdy plastic board, easy-to-handle oversized bolts, colorful activity cards and realistic tools provide a fun way to foster fine motor skills, as well as introduce pattern recognition and beginning math. Little hardhats pick an activity card and drill the colored bolts into the pegboard base to replicate the pattern pictured on the card. Realistic sounds and drilling action help encourage imagination and expressive language, while the drill's shape and large power button help develop and refine motor skills. Includes 20 activity cards, plastic bolts, 3 drill bits, drill, screwdriver and combination wrench.

Features

  • Snap drill bits into reversible kid-safe drill or screwdriver handle to attach and take out design-element bolts
  • 20 colorful activity cards encourage pattern reproduction and creating pictures
  • Encourages hand-eye coordination and pattern recognition
  • Ages 3 and up
  • 5.5Hx12.5Wx11.75D

My 3-yr-old son and 4 1/2-yr-old daughter LOVE this product...and so do I. True...it only comes with 1 drill. But it also includes a wrench and a screwdriver so 3 kids can share and work together. Great for building creativity, concentration, and fine motor skills. Going to put this on top of my list of gifts to buy for my kids' friends.

    Comments about Educational Insights Design and Drill Activity Center:

    The drill doesn't work at all. I thought that maybe we just got a faulty one but after reading reviews here, it's obviously just junk. You'd think a product would have to at least work to make it to the store shelf but I guess not.

        My kids love this and fought over their cousin's - We got it as a gift from their grandmother. Once we got it home and got it opened though, we found that the screw to open the bottom of the drill did not re-screw into the threads with batteries in it. So now we have the bottom of the gun taped shut and we have to retape it every couple of hours. It's a huge pain but the kids like it in general.

          My 3.5 year old, very active, can't sit still for five minute twins love this product. Out of all of the christmas gifts they prefer this toy. The drill stopped working after a short time, so I called costumer service and they replaced it with no hassle right away. Highly recommend it.

            The product has a good concept, colorful, sturdy overall. However, the drill didn't work. It worked briefly in reverse, then didn't work at all. My husband, a mechanical engineer, examined it and the wires and trigger interfered, there were other problems. I don't know if this was poor design or we got one with poor construction. either way it made for a frustrating Christmas. Unfortunately I had lost the receipt since it was purchased in Nov and so no return either.

                The overall product seemed sturdy, concept is good. However, the drill barely worked. For a brief time it worked in reverse but not forward. Eventually neither worked. My husband a mechanical engineer examined it and it was clear that either the design or construction was faulty. The trigger would hit internal wires, there were other problems. I don't know if we got a bad one or if this is a common problem. I'm very disappointed as my grandson loved it otherwise. Unfortunately, it was a gift and I had lost the receipt, so not even a return. I wish I had a replacement to see if it works better.
