Moulin Roty’s Wooden Tool Box is such a nice gift for the young aspiring carpenter. With a child-size hammer, two screwdrivers, and a mini saw, this beautifully constructed and packaged kit is a great way to make kids familiar with real working tools. Plus the wooden box will keep everything tucked away when not in use and not strewn across the playroom floor.
While the saw isn’t able to cut wood, only cardboard, it is still sharp and should only be used with adult supervision. I’d say the same of the metal hammer and screwdriver, since I’d hate to find out that my kids had been pounding on my coffee tables in an effort to “fix” it.
But, if you start them young, perhaps they’ll be the kind of adult who doesn’t immediately smash their thumb when trying to hammer in a nail. –Christina
