Although Parents' Choice rarely recommends toys - traditional or tech - that are designed to promote a tv show not childhood play, this one makes sense. Age appropriate activities, easily understood verbal instruction and sound effects (an electric drill and a circular saw) that contribute to the overall play experience. Handy Manny gives six projects step-by-step instructions via the electronic blueprint cartridges, and guides young builders through the building process. Suggestions and parts for 20 projects from a birdhouse to a robot to a drag racer are included.

The set comes with workbench, play saw and drill, plastic project parts and screws, two tools and of course, Handy Manny's two helpers: Pat the Hammer and Felipe the Screwdriver. The three AA batteries are included.
