It seems these days so many building and design type toys are made for boys so I was super excited to find Design and Drill Dazzling Creations for my five year old daughter Paige to try!
This cute set comes with the following:
Multilingual package and instructions in English, Spanish, French, and German
1 Ratcheting screwdriver with forward and reverse switch
4 Mini fun-shaped activity boards: castle, unicorn, crown, and dress
30 Translucent, sparkly bolts
8 Clear faceted gem caps
Paige was so excited to get started right away, and so were her brothers! Her older brother Reed read her the directions while she followed them: teamwork at it’s best!
The four main boards are shapes all girls adore. Paige’s favorite was the castle since she loves all things princess! These two had a lot of fun working on them together.
At five and seven they were able to do this completely on their own with no help from mommy so that was a nice change! It’s designed for ages 4+ because of small parts little ones could choke on and the muscle coordination it takes to use the screwdriver. That didn’t stop my one and a half year old from trying for himself, completely supervised of course!
I thought it was cute how these were like real tools but sparkly and girly, and made for kids of course! They are really good quality and I don’t see any of the parts ever breaking.
All three of my kids have had a great time playing with this one and it does my heart good to see them working together and liking the same thing, even if it is “girlie” and two of my three kids are boys!
From working on their motor skills and coordination to sorting and colors; this set is educational AND fun. You really can have it all with Design & Drill and while it may be for girls, trust me when I say the boys will dig it too!
