"Red Tool Box" kid tools at lowes
I take my oldest son (5yo) with me almost every time I go to the "Daddy Stores" and we came across a section at Lowes with tools and projects for kids. Everything from a pine wood derby type car to mini golf type things. They are all branded Red Tool Box. I was wondering if any of you have bought these things for their kids to make and play with. Thought it would be nice to get since my son is always watching me do projects around the house here and wanting to help out, but for safety reasons I will not allow him to. I am thinking the 20 dollar set of tools they sell would be nice, it includes a 6 inch metal ruler, a small tape measure, a short handled hammer, a phillips and straight screw driver, a plastic C clamp, a tool belt, a flat/rounded file, a pair of goggles and a saw. All real tools. What do you all think? Get him started on the ready made kit projects and move from there, once he learns proper safety and such, to real projects on Daddys tools.....
