Jim Dandy’s Review Educational Toys Set From Kool Supply
We recently tried out the Creative Builder Set by Koolsupply.
Normally, Andy will play with a toy for a few hours and set it aside, but this set really caught and HELD his attention. I have to say that he absolutely loves this toy – which is probably the most important aspect of any toy.
The Creative Builder toy is rated for children 3 years and older, and my son Andy is 19 months, so take that into consideration. I helped him build things, because the assembly was too complicated for him since it required more dexterity than a 19-monther has.
The parts are well manufactured and easily fit each other. The design uses simple plastic bolts and nuts. Making the suggested shapes and figures shown in the instructions is a piece of cake. Even my wife, who is probably the least mechanical human being on Earth, was able to successfully build robot and dog shapes.
I have to say that the design of this toy favors simplicity and rapid building over the ability to hold together. It’s not that the pieces are flimsy, it’s just that the plastic bolts tend to loosen up when played with. Unlike toys that click or snap together, the screw-in bolts loosen over time. When a nut can be applied, this loosening is much less problematic, but not all the parts allow use of the nut. This issue is especially relevant to the wheels, which tend to unscrew as they’re spun.
That drawback aside, we were able to improvise a bunch of shapes and designs and made a dragster-esque car and a 4-disc plow for a tractor (see pictures).
I’m not sure my son knew what the designs were… maybe dad was having too much fun putting them together. Great toy!
