Real (Child-Sized) Tools Prices vary

For kids just getting used to tying their own shoes and coloring inside the lines, a set of real tools, made smaller for tiny hands, can be a great way to introduce them to the world of wood construction. If you’re willing to supervise, real tools are superior to plastic safety tools. True, there is real danger. But there’s also real power. “Part of learning how to use tools is to respect that they can hurt you,” someone smart told me recently.
