Rated 4 out of 5Â by MissPreschool It was a little difficult to put together, but once we got it together it holds up well, and the kids love it (I'm a preschool teacher so this includes boys and girls 3-5)! The clamp stopped moving and I haven't been able to figure out why, but the toolbench itself is sturdy, stylish, and fun and the wooden pieces and tools are easy to use and durable. The booklet with sample projects has fairly lengthy steps, making it difficult for younger children to use independently, but my (very persistent) 5 year old figured it out

We bought this for our rough and tough nephew that loves to be like his daddy. My husband and I put this together in about half an hour with our two year old crawling all over us and the work bench. It is very sturdy and instructions made it easy to assemble. It came with a lot of pieces to play with. My two year old daughter loved playing with it as we put it together. The wood isn't real cheap and smooth so no splinters. My only complaint is the vice as it is a little difficult to operate but still works.

The workbench has been a wonderful addition to our 4 year olds playthings. However, three of the small round hubs have been misplaced. Which makes building the models in the booklet impossible. I would purchase an additional construction kit if one contained the small hubs.

My not-yet 3 year old loves building things so we purchased this workbench for him. He hasn't stopped playing with it since he helped assemble it. The workbench itself is very sturdy when assembled. The wrench works great, and the hammer has a very realistic claw. The nuts and bolts work together perfectly. My sole problem: The screwdriver is the wrong size for the bolts. My son can use a real screwdriver, and did while assembling the product, but he gets frustrated with the wooden screwdriver included because it slips in the bolts. The screwdriver is not the full length of the slot in the bolts, but more importantly it isn't the right width either. It moves in both directions while trying to turn it. He became so upset that we just had to "lose" the screwdriver. If this product is revamped in the future, the only change I would make would be to either increase the size of the head on the screwdriver, or make the slot on the bolts narrower so they work together better.
