What It Is
What It Is
With the Twist & Drill set, part of Alex's Little Hands line, preschoolers can work with realistic plastic tools to create four different paper models. The set comes with a battery-powered drill with forward and reverse action, as well as a screwdriver handle for manual twisting and three interchangeable drill bits. Kids can use the 28 plastic, chunky bolts and the power drill or screwdriver to put together four vehicles with spinning wheels. The set also comes with a practice board so that kids can get the hang of using the power drill or screwdriver to tighten the bolts in place and loosen them. Assembly instructions are also included. When playtime is over, everything stores inside the box, which includes a carry handle.
Why It’s Fun
Young kids see mom or dad using tools around the house, and because kids want to emulate their parents, kids also want to work with tools. The kid-appropriate power drill and screwdriver in the Twist & Drill set are sized for smaller hands and let kids easily create, build, and feel successful as they create. Drilling and building also helps develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
Who It’s For
The Twist & Drill set is for ages 3 and up.
What to Be Aware of
Two AAA batteries are required for the power drill, but the batteries are not included.
