Q: Does the drill actually "work" by screwing in/out screws?

submitted by TB - 5 years ago
  • A: Unfortunately, no. The drill does not fit into the screw head. The drill is mainly for pretend play, great sounds and action for pretending.

    submitted bygail - 5 years ago
  • A: Nope, not at all. Don't buy this!

Q: How would one get more screws and nails for the bench? It came with so little

submitted by rogersfam - 6 days ago
  • A: Our Black+Decker Ready to Build Workbench only comes with the play screws and play nails already available in the set.

Q: Is this appropriate for a five year old?

submitted by Kjf - 5 years ago
  • A: Might be a bit too simple, depending upon the child. But if yours likes pretend play, this toy is good for that. Realistic sounds lend a hand to good pretend play.

Q: Can the drill be removed from the bench?

submitted by SandiS - 5 years ago
  • A: Yes, the drill is removable.

originally posted on blackanddecker.com
My 3 year old loves this (it’s only been two days) however, I’m finding it difficult to come up with ideas. I would love to order add ons or projects that we could do. A few tips, I didn’t use all the screws to build it so we both could use them. I also didn’t screw on some of the pieces that way I have something to do on the bench. I put in the nails upside down from the bottom that way he could hammer them out because he’s not strong enough to hit them in (a little tough). I only put 4 stars because he does love it, especially the drill, too bad it doesn’t screw anything (but I understand why). Although, because of the weak force, I still think it would have been safe enough of it had the same bit size as the screw driver.

I purchased this for Christmas for my kids who weren't quite old enough for it. I was disappointed upon assembly that it only has 4 screws for them to play with and it seems that I would have had to get a different set for the drill press and vice. I wish the photos were more accurate to what is actually available to play with in the box, though I do think using the same screws for the set for assembly is a cool idea.

Michelle - 9 months ago, Verified purchaser
My son is excited about this bench however for the cost I’m unsatisfied. This bench only has a handful of screws and the motorized drill doesn’t even interact with them! I know there are drill toys that will work with screws and I’m highly disappointed they didn’t take advantage of that with this set. I’m also disappointed that there isn’t many screws and that after purchasing I seen another set that game with pretend wood. This set doesn’t come with anything that can actually interact with other pieces. It’s extremely disappointing to pay $70 and the lack of thought put into this toy. It would be nice to have the option to buy would pieces atleast but you cannot even do that. Highly considering returning if I convince my son what a waste it is

Didn’t work out of the box. The chain doesn’t spin and sounds like it’s stuck inside. Really disappointing trying to explain having to return this to a three year old. He was so looking forward to it as a reward for meeting a goal. :(

Photography on packaging is misleading. You use 90% of the screws to put the bench together. You end up with four screws to play with. Photography leads you to believe you have more to play with. Very disappointing.

My daughter likes it. But you don’t have many screws or nails after you put it all together, which kinda stinks.

Like other people mentioned, after you build it there isn’t much left over to play with. It doesn’t come with boards or anything for the kids to use the tools with. The screws and nails in particular don’t at actually work with anything. You put the nail up to the whole and it just falls in. What’s the point of the hammer exactly? We got this for my 16 mo old despite it being for 3 and up. He loves to play with the saw and drill and light but I can see this being abandoned by him by the time he is 3, when the Novelty of turning things in and off wears off. There just isn’t much to play with for an older kid to be entertained by. We got this during the Black Friday sale, so worth it for now but I wouldn’t recommend for 3 and up unless you’re going to spend more money and buy additional accessories, which may or may not be compatible.

The workbench went together easily enough, but you have to use most of the screws it comes with to put it together. The 53 accessories advertisement is kind of a lie. Also the drill doesn’t work with the screws. Sort of disappointing.

nice little peoples workbench. one flaw is the drill bit does not allow the kids to use it to turn the screw heads in which would have been an easy design change. also adding some board pieces to bolt together & pretend to cut would have added some more fun. otherwise it's a fun toy for the grandkids.

Not worth the price. Cute idea but the quality of the plastic is cheap and flimsy on the bench legs. I think there are better options out there for this amount of money. You’re paying for the brand name.

So disappointed in this one! It does not have the tool box and the cut apart boards that other sets do. Not much to play with. Would not buy this set again. Returning! Check out the Black and Decker Power Tool Workshop instead. Really disappointed. (BTW I think this is the first negative review I have ever written)

foxmama - 4 years ago
Got this for our daughter because she likes to try and help build things. We were annoyed to find out that the "53 Tools and Accessories" wound up only being around "17 Tools and Accessories" after the table was built because the rest of that "53" went into building the table itself. Then the drill stopped working five minutes after putting batteries in it. Overall, we feel lie to about the "53 Tools and Accessories" tag on the box and frustrated that the drill stopped working so quick. I cannot recommend this and probably won't be buying any other Black+Decker toys after this poor experience.
