We’re pretty sure kids tool sets have never not been popular. And rightfully so! They’re an awesome gift for both little boys and girls. Toy tool sets are excellent at helping develop motor skills for little hands, just like playing with toy shopping carts and dialing numbers on toy phones. We probably remember playing with our own sets of plastic tools as kids back in the day.

Gone are the days of basic plastic tools. Some of these tool kits they’re making for kids are fancy enough to look like the real deal — all the more fun for young builders! Now they can really feel like they’re helping out on DIY projects around the house. Kids love to mimic whatever they see their parents doing, so if you’re someone who loves building at home, it might be a good idea to pick up a tool kit or workbench for your kiddo to hammer along with.

And if your little tinkerer is ready to get their hands dirty and build their own creation, there are plenty of tool sets out there that come with their own blueprints. They can feel a sense of accomplishment when they successfully build their own airplane, tool caddy, birdhouse, and so much more!

Now, finding the right tool kit for your kid is the tricky part. Got a curious toddler on your hands who’s looking to just bang away with a hammer? We found the best toddler tool kits and workbenches for them to build away with. And for the older kiddos, there’s a wide selection of tool benches and sets for you to choose from. Some sets include real tools, while others are plastic but feature realistic sounds. So don’t forget to scoop up some batteries!
