Master Workbench

Master Workbench

Spring 2012 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Price: $119.99

The Hape Master Workbench is expensive at $119.99, but it is a solidly built toy which should last for a long time. The workbench set contains thirty-two pieces, including a saw, hammer, wrench, screwdriver, ruler, nuts, nails, and bolts. All are colored with water-based paints. It looks nice in our playroom and the boys began playing with it immediately.

The tools are easy enough to manipulate and can be stored right on the work surface. The packaging was accurate and the assembly instructions were easy to follow. It is made of quality wood and plastic parts. My boys are into fixing things and already have many tools. This is a great addition to our toys as it now gives them a workshop to 'create' in. It challenges their fine motor skills, it lets them imitate dad as he tries to fix things, and it allows them to use their imaginations in many ways. It a good choice for a parent looking for a fun, long lasting, quality toy.
