Ages: 3 & Up
Manufacturer: Educational Insights
Price: $39.99

The Design & Drill Brightworks toy is a Lite-Brite type toy for which a child uses a realistic power drill to place plastic pegs in a light up base. The peg placements can follow one of the 12 patterns included, or placed in any design that strikes a fancy.

Our young testers appreciated the size and ease of manipulating the pieces; parents enjoyed watching them build a few skills, and listening to the ongoing DIY dialogue. The kit includes 80 translucent bolts, a light up activity board, a guide with a dozen patterns, and a realistic power drill with both a socket bit and a flat tip bit. The three AA batteries required are not included.
