Wooden Toy Toolbox & Tools

What is the best way of inspiring the next generation of engineers? I don’t know the answer but getting them started at a young age must help, surely?! I’m not sure who has had more fun with this gift: me making it or Zoe playing with it.

I tried to make it as safe as I could for a 3 year old. The hammer has a short handle, sharp edges are minimise and there shouldn’t be any chocking hazards. But this is probably a toy that needs supervision for younger ages.

The conents are as follows:

  • Toolbox
  • Drill
  • Hammer
  • Set square
  • Screwdriver
  • Ruler
  • Saw
  • Spanner
  • Pliers
  • Plane

The design of the toolbox and some of the tools were inspired by this wooden toolset on instructables.
