Jack "the tool man" Powell

My son Jack is a tool fanatic. He loves tools and loves to built. He's also really good at it. He can see all kids of things when he looks at what I can only call 'stuff'. He got this cool erector/connectrix set for Christmas. I have not been able to find it anywhere online. This is the closest toy I could find as a comparison. Jack has a blast making all kind of things with these. They also spark imagination and encourage the development of fine motor skills. What could be a better toy?!

All the descriptions are Jack's words:

The number 4


Here we have a dog house, complete with air conditioning and a phone.


A shower with a mirror and a place for the water to come out.

A lawn mower
A shooter.

Also among the toys he built but are not pictures are:

  • Santa's Sleigh with a place for toys
  • a bathtub
  • a bike with no seat and a steering wheel (this is my personal favorite)
  • a merry go round
  • a 2 person riding toy
  • an umbrella

I think my favorite is the lawn mower.

Those look like awesome toys!! My boys would love something like that....Henry's birthday is coming up soon too! And the pieces don't look too terribly tiny!?! I may have to start looking for them!Great pictures! I love the shooter and would have loved to have seen the pic of the umbrella! Kids can be so creative!
