Playset Teaches Munchkins the Basics of Car Repairzoom in

Yeah, your kid has that barbecue playset. Does it actually teach him/her anything about cooking? NO! Cooking is all about timing and balancing the flavors of ingredients. Injection molded plastic patties that remain unchanged on heatless burners indefinitely don’t teach anything about proper seasoning or getting a feel for how to judge meat done-ness. I suggest you throw that playset out immediately and replace it with this one.

This Engine Repair Set from Hammacher Schlemmer is designed to actually teach your kid the basics of engine repair. Said kid can even turn the key to listen to the engine once he’s done messing with the car to see if everything is running properly. It comes with tools made for little hands and lets the kid do everything from oil changes to brake service. I think it’s really cool, and my incoming child might just have to have one.
