I Love This Toy

Every few months I make a quick trip to our local Tuesday Morning.  I usually pop in to check out the craft supplies and toys.  Our store often has great scrapbook supplies and a nice selection of Melissa & Doug puzzles at a sweet discount.  On my most recent trip I stumbled upon this take apart crane toy and knew Munchkin would absolutely love it:

Battat Take Apart Crane

I presented it as part of our school workbox units this week.  To say it was a hit is a huge understatement.  He has spent a combined 6 hours working on assembling and disassembling it already this week.

Here it is set up for him to work on. I took an old fasters box (from Lowes) and filled it with the screws and bolts, then just added all of the parts (except for the orange base) to a workbox. The drill came with 3 different bits and he has to switch between them for different parts of the building.

It thrills me to no end to find something that he loves AND that's working his fine motor skills, memory, and problem solving!  I just had to share in case anyone else has an almost 4 year old that loves tools! 

PS - Amazon has it right now for $17.14 (and it qualifies for super saver shipping).  I paid $14.99 at Tuesday Morning.

PSS - And I was in no way compensated for this post - I'm 100% certain Battat has noooo idea who I am.
