Safety

Kids and tools; that sounds like a hazardous combination! But this certainly doesn’t have to be the case. ToolKid is the only tool set for kids worldwide, that complies with the strict European safety standards (Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC and EN71, parts 1 and 3). And the ergonomically correct design and clear instructions stimulate children to develop a large extent of independence.

The expression ‘unknown, unloved’ is perhaps the most appropriate: we are barely involved in any DIY ourselves these days. This makes us apprehensive to let our children work with this ‘dangerous stuff’… In practice, however, children actually appear to use tools in a very responsible way! Needless to say, they need to have access to the right tools, with clear instructions on how to use them.

And that is exactly what ToolKid is: no imitation or diminutive form of tools for grown-ups, but specially developed with and for kids. The tools have been extensively tested and developed further and that is why they are extremely suitable for letting children get started safely and independently on technical challenges.

The ToolKid kids’ tool set is:

Safe:

  • easy to use with clear user instructions
  • 100% ergonomically designed
