(Note:  these are not tools we sell.  These are less expensive tools I bought for the grandkids.   For really top quality tools click here.)   

When I was a kid I wanted to do real stuff.   When people gave me pretend stuff I really lost interest.

It was funny how it worked.  A Fort Apache play set (with Rin Tin Tin) was really cool.   Tools that wouldn’t do any work were not.

I played with tools but they were my Dad’s tools.  We built forts, and clubhouses and tree houses with real hammers and real nails.

That is why I bought real tools for my version of a kid’s tool set.  I went to Home Depot and cruised the main aisle looking for special purchase bargains.  I bought a lot of Work Force tools.  The tools we sell are much better tools but the cheaper tools are still real tools.  They will do real work and they will not fall apart.  They are more than good enough for kids.

If you are an adult who really knows tools eventually you will do what I do and start buying really top end tools such as Wiha, Bondhus, Felo and the other brands we sell.

Anyway, here is my tool kit for kids.  I got carried away.  (Tools + Hardware store + spending marketing money + grandkids.  Actually it is amazing I didn’t spend more.)

A couple hammers, some real nails, a couple old pallets and some scrap lumber would be a great “tool set” for kids.

Warning:  These are real tools.  The kid can hit their thumb with a hammer.  They can get pinched with the pliers. Make sure your child is taught how to use the tools in a safe manner.
