Tools and Tool Sets

Kids tool kits are fantastic educational toys. Few gifts are as effective at teaching children hand-eye coordination and problem-solving abilities while emphasising roleplaying fun!

A kids tool set from BrightMinds makes for a wonderful childrens gift. They can also help boys and girls develop numerical and measurement skills – truly an all-around winner for young handymen and women.

What Does a Kids Tool Set Include?

There’s a variety of unique kits on offer, each with a wide range of included tools. Some kits contain slow-spinning toy drills with safe plastic pieces and no sharp edges to give children a thrill without any of the danger that comes from a real drill. 

Other sets include kits packed full of miniature versions of the DIY tools you’d expect to see in a workshop, blunted for safety and lightweight for little hands. Saws, hammers, screwdrivers, nuts and bolts – all safely designed specifically for aspiring DIY-ers!


The Educational Benefits of a Kids Tool Set

Toys based on their real-life counterparts offer fantastic learning opportunities. These include:

  • Improved gross motor skills and fine motor skills
  • Better hand-eye coordination
  • Heightened problem-solving ability
  • Increased appreciation for – and skill in – maths
  • Understanding important real-life proficiencies (in this case, those all-important DIY skills)


How Old Should My Child Be to Enjoy a Kids Tool Set?

At BrightMinds, we believe in wholesale inclusivity with educational toys. This commitment has led us to stock a variety of kids DIY toys for all ages!

Our kids tools start in our toys for 3 year olds range and go right up to older children aged 8 and above. Our sturdiest sets could even be used by adults for some jobs in a pinch (while retaining all the safety you’d expect from a childrens toy, of course)!


A Full-Scale Workbench for Children

Popular educational toys distributor Melissa & Doug has crafted a wonderful wooden project workbench for kids, full of charming tools and project ideas! This wonderful gift is jam-packed with all the mini tool set delight that your special boy or girl could imagine.

It’s certainly not your only kids tool set option, though; there are smaller and simpler tool sets for younger children, many of them also carrying the Melissa & Doug seal of approval.

Wooden DIY for Kids 

As childrens toy manufacturers increasingly move towards making ethical and sustainable gifts, wooden tool sets have become more and more popular. Not only are they more authentic, but they’re also a sustainable alternative to plastic tools. 

Wooden toys have a long-lasting, environmentally friendly quality that is impossible to replicate. There’s a good reason they’ve been around for ages!
