This one is very similar to the race car set except that it’s a Monster Truck. It comes with everything needed to build their own Monster Truck, including the best part: the power drill!
The power drill is just like daddy’s big drill only small and safe for the little ones. While Jax can press the button and make it go, he doesn’t quite have the dexterity to use it in the proper way so he gets lots of help from mom and dad and his siblings. I think with a little more practice he’ll be able to do it on his own. For now he likes to put the parts on himself and have us help him with the drill.
The bright, bold colors are perfect for kids to really attract attention to them. As a mom I wish the clear bolts had some color to them so they didn’t disappear on my floor so easily but other than that, the colors are fantastic!
The snap on parts Jax can do himself and you can just see the pride on his face when he exclaims “I did it” after each part is attached. It’s such a great confidence builder.
With a focus on STEM it works on their counting and matching skills as well as following patterns. Jax loves to put the tires on and pull them off and we count as he goes. He recently learned colors and now we’ve moved on to counting so this presents a learning opportunity for both.
The design and drill power play vehicles are a definite favorite in my house and even his older siblings love to put them together! They claim they are helping him but I know they are having just as much fun!
The Big Idea
Kids can zoom into build ‘n’ play fun with Design & Drill® Power Play Vehicles™! Your junior mechanics can build their vehicle by snapping the pieces together. Then, they can use the motorized mini-drill to add the bolts. Finally, it’s time to add artistic flair and customize their creation with colorful stickers, and race into creative STEM play! Once their monster truck is ready to hit the road, they can use kid-power to send their car speeding!
