We all need tools regardless of our age. Lots of men, and several women I know, have workshops or work areas filled with tools. Because children imitate their parents, they love having their own workshop, tools and tool bench. Finding the best tool bench for kids, as well as the neat tool accessories, is easy when you have the best sets all listed on one page.
A Tool Bench for kids gives your child a vast number of learning and imaginative opportunities. If you plan to give the gift of tools, you will also want to provide a bench or workshop for your child to work on projects, blocks, and so much more.
Discover what interests your child as they play. Interact with them to offer ideas and give them tools and materials (blocks, designs, vehicles to tinker with, or building materials). Ideas come to life when your child has the tools and place to work. Check each of the tool benches for kids to find out what is included and add-on to the bench set to expand the possibilities.
A child will have hours of fun, imagination, learn to read instructions, learn about each tool and how each tool can aid in the project at hand. Soon they will discover natural skills and aptitude. They can learn how to use these toys to demonstrate academic skills as well as stretch the imagination and explore different ways to build.
Black & Decker Small (Junior) Workbench
Recommended for Ages 3 and up
Black and Decker Small Workbench
Black & Decker is a name we are all familiar with, therefore it may well be your top choice since it may carry the same name as your own tools.
Use playtime to discuss dreams and ideas. What will your child want to build in the future? How can you provide learning experiences now to begin the development of thought processes he can use later? There are so many ways to engage and learn it would be impossible to examine all the ideas without having a starting point. You can determine that staring point by discussion and teaching how things are created.
How are bridges built? Where are materials found to build a house? What makes a car move? As you can see the world around us will offer multiple ideas to get you started as you interact with your child to find out what they like, what they would like to accomplish, and how they can use a tool bench to begin developing ideas and skills.

Even the youngest children can begin to explore tool benches and tools. When you have toddlers you want to consider toys which are non-toxic, safe, have no small parts which might be swallowed. As an educational tool you can focus on counting tools, naming them, describing colors, and a range of pre-school topics.
Older children can attempt to color tools, create their own ‘tool guide’ and over time add what kind of tools can be used for different tasks. Teach step by step and use the tool bench for kids to elaborate on your ideas. Let children have playtime as well as clean up time so they also begin to understand the importance of caring for tools and tool benches.
This set includes 6 tools:
Melissa & Doug Wooden Project Workbench
Melissa & Doug Wooden Project WorkbenchRecommended for ages 3 years and older
Classic and durable wood tool bench for kids. Great accessories included.
Older children may enjoy a wooden tool bench for kids because it is more like a grown up tool bench than the colorful plastic or acrylic style of tool benches. They also have innate educational ideas. Consider providing wood blocks or LEGOS with the bench so your child can build with blocks on their toy tool bench.
Begin to show older children how to follow instructions for assembling things. Many LEGO sets have instructions included and when they are age appropriate are enjoyable as well as educational to learn.
Wooden Project Workbench Includes:
- 2 Allen wrenches
- Toy saw
- Sawing board
- Various building supplies
A deluxe workbench with several accessories in a design is much like that of the big boys toys. You can see this is a design which resembles the larger full size grown up tool box tool bench and any child who loves to spend time in Dad or Mom’s workshop will enjoy having their very own child size tool bench. Set Includes: Battery operated reversible drill, hammer, wrench, screwdriver, Nuts, bolts & Nails

ALEX Toys My Work BenchDESIGN AND CREATE A TOOL GUIDE TO HELP A CHILD LEARN ABOUT TOOLS
Older children may want to draw their own images and color them with watercolor pencils or perhaps cut images out of a magazine. Another idea would be to take photos of the tools in their very own deluxe workbench kit and create a scrapbook type tool guide.
A personalized tool guide created by your child can expand over time for them (by them) as they learn more about tools and all the ways tools can help them accomplish specific tasks for projects or in everyday repairs and tinkering.
If your child is very young perhaps a coloring book of tools would make the task easier for them as it is already bound and has images ready to color.
Workbench Set Includes:
A colorful hammer, screwdriver, wrench, saw, carpenter’s square, vise, nuts, bolts, connectors and wooden pegs.
