The Not So Good
Made from plastic
Can build just about anything
Adults can join in!
Koolsupply Creative Builder Set comes with 85 pieces that are used to create just about anything that you would want to create. The pieces include 4 wheels, a wrench, and plastic pieces and screws to build with. The pieces are made from sturdy plastic and are housed in a plastic storage bin with a lid and a handle. I really like that everything is contained. The builder set is ready to go if we need to take it with us to occupy our toddler in the car or at someone's house.
The builder set is safe for children 3+ because of smaller parts. However, I can see a child as young as 2-2.5 years old enjoying the set with adult supervision. The great part is that older children, teenagers, young adults and older adults can also play with this set. Everyone can join in!
Usage: Open the box, look at the instruction sheet for suggestions, and start building!
Results: My 2.5 year old son really enjoyed playing with the builder set. He is able to play with Legos fairly well, so I knew this set was a good next step. The first few times, I sat down with him and showed him briefly how stuff goes together. I try to minimize instruction with him and allow him to figure stuff out on his own. He was able to get a good hang out putting pieces together, though he's not old enough yet to be able to build something like a dinosaur without help from an adult. I also enjoyed building with him, so that is a big plus in my book! The plastic storage bin with the snap-on lid is a great feature to take the set outside the home.
We have not had to clean the set yet, but I can see it being really easy to do so. My strategy for cleaning plastic toys with smaller parts is to fill the sink with soapy, swirl the toys around in it, rinse, and dry. Then, let air dry.
The Koolsupply Creative Builder Set is a toy that my child will continue to come back to. He can make something new every time and it will keep his imagination going as he gets older. I would highly recommend this toy for any child on your holiday gift list.
