Design & Drill® Activity Centre {Review}

Charles loves helping my husband out with DIY, fixing the car....anything that involves screwdrivers, hammers and drills.
When Learning Resources asked if we would like to review the Design & Drill® Activity Centre I knew Charles would love it.
The set includes:
  • 10 double-sided pattern cards providing 20 full-colour activities
  • 100 plastic bolts in 5 vibrant colours
  • Combination spanner and junior power drill with reverse function
You are also provided with a plasticwhite design board. Using the pattern cards your child then drills and screws the bolts into the design board, copying the pattern on the chosen card.
For the first few days of use Charles filled every hole with a bolt. This was great to get him used to how the tools work.
 
 
Please excuse the stripes on this photo.
This toy is fantastic to work on concentration skills, following instructions and working individually. Charles asked for help a couple of times but overall did amazingly well. 
It holds his attention for a long time aswell...any toy that does that is an immediate success.

This is proof that education and learning is fun.

The toy is suitable for ages 3-7, again this is fantastic as I love toys which I know will get a lot of use for many years. It's great quality too so I know it will last a long time too without breaking or damaging.

I'd highly recommend this for birthdays, Christmas or as a general learning gift. It's available via the Learning Resources website. Extra drills and fun bolts are available to buy seperately incase any bits go missing.
