Review: Black & Decker Junior Power Tool Workshop Lets Kids Be Builders

Black & Decker Junior Power Tool Workshop

 Black & Decker Junior Power Tool Workshop

Sometimes I wish I could hire a 4 year old as a contractor.  Sure, they don’t have the greatest technique when it comes to construction projects, but boy do they have the desire and will!  If you have a little builder who wants to fix things just like Dad, then you need to know about the Black & Decker Junior Power Tool Workshop.

Just Like The Real Tools…Without The Risk of Losing Digits

The Black & Decker Junior Power Tool Workshop comes with pretend tools that look and sound like the real thing, but thankfully pose no danger to the little tikes.   The tools are very well done.  You get a miter saw that really spins to give the impression of cutting and a  drill press that moves up and down to mimic real drill press action.

Here is everything you get with the Black & Decker Junior Power Tool Workshop:


  • Workbench with Storage Trays
  • Miter Saw That Really Spins
  • Phone
  • Drill Press That Moves Up and Down
  • Accessory Bin
  • Vice
  • Hand Saw
  • Screw Driver
  • Hammer
  • Wrench
  • 15 Screws
  • 5 Nails
  • 22 Nuts
  • Tool Box
  • Bonus Flashlight

In total you get over 50 pieces in the Black & Decker Junior Power Tool Workshop.

Kids Can Build a Toolbox and Whatever They Want to Imagine

Kids can build a toolbox with the parts that come in the Workshop, but the real fun comes in the imaginative projects.  Since the tools have motion and sounds, kids love pretending to fix things around the house and build things like space ships and flying cars.  The Black & Decker Junior Power Tool Workshop gives kids their own space and tools to build some incredible projects.  Sure, it is all imaginary, but toys that foster imaginative play are some of the best toys.

Conclusion:
