Rated 4 out of 5 by Lan F Fun Way to Learn Drilling Skills
My son played with this a lot when he received it. I love that it has a lot of the same capabilities as a "real" drill (you can change it to go front or reverse and there are two different bits that can be swapped out) and its pretty cool when it lights up (like us 80s kids and our light brights). I think I might have had more fun practicing my drilling skills as my 3.5 year old son. I'm only giving it 4stars because we've had it for a few weeks and he seems to have gotten bored of it already. I hope to bring this out more to help show my son all the creative capabilities this has. I think he can eventually fall in love with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom of Three Great creative educational toy !
The Design & Drill BrightWorks is a wonderful product for my 3 and 6 year old. They are fascinated by building and putting it in the dark to watch it light up (the colors are very bright, which they love). Great educational tool that brings out their creativity for designing patterns and more. The tools are perfectly sized for little hands. Very creative toy!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eileen Great toy for multiple ages!
We got this toy for my 4 year old son, and he really enjoyed making designs - both his own and the patterns that came with it. Our 5 (almost 6) year old neighbor also liked playing with it. And my 1.5 year old daughter loves playing with the drill. So all in all a great product that will last a long time in our household.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JNL Just Like Daddy!
My daughter received this toy for free to review. She is not quite three years old and loves to help her very handy dad with tasks around the house. This toy made her day to have her own "power tool" that actually worked (and didn't just make noise).She got the hang of putting the screws in and out of the board very quickly. The toy reminded me of "Light Bright." What I wish (as a parent) was that there was a sheet you could put over the board to show which colors to put where to make the various designs. There is no way she'd have the patience to look at the little booklet to make the designs. She has enjoyed showing this to her friends and teaching them how to use the drill. I would definitely get this toy as a present for a child!

The boxy says recommended for ages 3 and up, but my 2 year old loves it too. He enjoys making patterns and then turning the light off to see it in the dark.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TJLMU Great Buy.
My daughter has played this non-stop since she received it. She loves the colors and coming up with her own patterns. She cannot wait for it to get dark so she can turn on the lights and see her patterns come to life.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle We both love it!
I received this game from Educational Insights in exchange for an honest review. I love this game/activity and so does my daughter! We haven't even used the drill yet to help put the pieces in, I just let my daughter choose the pieces and she screws them in herself (reinforcing her fine motor skills). She loves it! :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by ST Awesome fun and creative toy for my 4-year-old!
My son LOVES this set! He just turned 4 last week, and this is so age-appropriate for him. We're currently putting an addition on our house, so he's been very interested in the tools the contractors have been using. Now he has his own cool drill to work with :) Just today he made the jet plane all by himself, and was very very proud! When we received this last week, after we put in the two AA & three AAA batteries required (not included) - he promptly filled up the whole board one by one with the little screws. He got a bit impatient having to unscrew all of them....but that's what he gets for filling up the whole board ;) The drill has a reverse setting, too, which is cool. It also has two different "drill bits" that kids can switch out. This toy is great to spark creativity and motor skills. There's a pattern book included, but my son has enjoyed making his own patterns. As a 4-year-old, he's super into patterns and tools...and this toy covers both! Overall, an awesome educational and fun toy!
