This one is very similar to the other set but even better. First of all, it’s a race car so of course Jax loves that!
The best part of this set though is that it comes with an actual working drill!
It takes three AAA batteries and then it’s ready to go! When you hear the word drill you probably envision a dangerous power tool but never fear, this ones made just for the little ones! The button is easy to push and then it spins and whirls just like a real drill, only safer!
The age recommendation for this is 3 – 5. Jax is just about 2 1/2 and doesn’t quite have the dexterity to work the drill by himself. However, if we place things for him and help get it attached, he can do it. Age 3 is probably the perfect age to be able to begin using this on their own.
Jax likes just taking it apart and having us help put it back together!
While he can’t quite build it yet, he definitely gets the concept and his little brain is still working away to figure out where the parts go, kind of like a puzzle. It definitely encourages him to work on those motor skills as well because he really wants to be able to do it all on his own!
The set comes with all parts needed to build a complete race car with moving parts, right down to the detailed stickers to complete the look.
Jax is absolutely thrilled to have his own design & drill set and his older brother and sister have definitely taken notice! At 6 and 8 the appeal isn’t lost on them! I know they’ll all be excited to try the monster truck version we’re going to work on next!
