Fantastic!! I’m sure they’ll enjoy these much more than the plastic ones from Walmart. ( and they’ll last longer)

Great idea and designs. I made leather tool belts and found small size tools for my boys when they were little. Yours will have a great time with these. However, be ready to share the real ones in the future. you might be creating some competition for your shop space!robert

You aren’t the first to have a tight Christmas. My dad told us about getting an orange one year. Tools look good. Sure your kids will play with them a lot.

Not only a great idea for this christmas, but for future gifts as well, as you have established a theme. There are many other tools you can make to fill their toolboxes for many years to come.
Items like this are often kept for a lifetime. “My dad made that for me when I was a kid” is a comment often heard from men (and women) in their middle years while proudly displaying some item usually more apropos for a child. They often get passed down generation to generation.

So incredibly cute! And sturdy and beautiful! Color coding is a great idea! I especially love the circular saw! How old are your kids?
