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, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

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?
