Design & Drill Toy Review/GIVEAWAY {Courtesy of Educational Insights}

~AND THE PRIZE GOES TO…

Congratulations!!! Please email me at Darlindeals@hotmail.com within 48 Hours to Claim your Prize!
You may all remember that a few weeks ago I was contacted by Educational Insights and asked if I would Review some of their Educational Toys & Games and then Host Giveaways for the same product. Last week I hosted a Giveaway for the Hot Dots Jr. Counting Card Set + Ace the Talking Dog.
This week I am pleased to host a Giveaway for Educational Insights’ Design & Drill Learning Toy!
This Educational Game is recommended for Ages 3+ and in my opinion this is mostly due to the Pattern Designing skills that this toy requires to fully utilize it for its intended educational purpose. I think this is a wonderful game that younger children can also enjoy even if they don’t yet comprehend how to create the patterns. This game comes with a play Screwdriver with a Forward & Reverse option to push or pull the screws in or out of the holes on the case. It also comes with 3 different ‘drill bit’ designs to attach to the screwdriver.
Although my Son is still too young to understand how to create any pattern designs with the Screws, he was able to grasp the idea of how to use the Screwdriver on his own to Drill the plastic Screws in & out of the Travel Case!  He was thrilled everytime he was able to attach the screwdriver correctly to a screw and then watch the screwdriver pull a screw out of the Case.

The only ‘flaw’ that I found with this game is that the area where the batteries need to be inserted into the play screwdriver requires an actual tool (small phillips head screwdriver) to open the base of the play screwdriver to insert the batteries and the game didn’t come with this tool. Including this tool would make it easier to open the base of the screwdriver in you don’t own the exact screwdriver that this requires. Luckily my Husband had the tool that was needed in his tool box.
Other than this very minor issue, Educational Insights has impressed me yet again with another fabulous Educational Toy!
