As a stay at home mom of three little ones, I am ALWAYS searching for something to occupy my kids and keep them entertained for periods of time. Don’t get me wrong, I encourage (and like) them to help me around the house doing laundry, dishes, cooking, etc…but occasionally, I like to be able to just get things done myself. My kids have never been the ‘push-button toy’ types of kids. They have always enjoyed imaginative play where they can explore and make the toy their own. The Design & Drill ® Flower Power Studio is such a fantastic toy for a number of reasons. I like to incorporate STEM education into much of our play and learning and the pattern building and recognition encouraged by this toy fits right in with this concept.
My 2 year old actually enjoys forgoing the use of the drill altogether and just twists the screws into the holes creating her own patterns and designs. She has been working on color recognition with the set as well! Another feature of the set that I like is that is folds up, keeping all of the screws and the drill safely tucked inside while making clean-up easy! We received the pink flower set for review, but there are other colored and themed options for your little ones as well. Overall, I would highly recommend this toy for toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children. My kids adore playing with ours, and I enjoy using it for educational purposes as well!
