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.

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

      Comments about Educational Insights Design and Drill Activity Center:

      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.

          Comments about Educational Insights Design and Drill Activity Center:

          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.

                Worked great for about 10 minutes. Then the drill just quit working. I noticed a plasticky/burnt smell so not sure if the motor went out or what. My son loved it while it lasted. Christmas morning disappointment. :(

                  Comments about Educational Insights Design and Drill Activity Center:

                  This was a Christmas present for our 4 1/2 year old grandson. He started playing with it right away and really focused on the patterns and how to copy them. It is a time consuming activity. One downside is that to remove the bolts, you have to use the drill, which means if they were put in the wrong hole, it takes a little extra time to get them out and start all over again. It would be better if you could unscrw them with your hand to minimize possible frustration.

                    Our 4 year old Grandson, Dillon loved this toy. He loves to build and drill and saw with Papa. This really keeps his imagination going and his hands busy. This activity center is great for kids that like to use tools and so safe.

                        We got this for my 4 yr old at Christmas and he loves it! He loves using the tools and making the pictures. I think it's great b/c he get's to use a real working drill and make something with it, unlike other "pretend" tools.
