Great toy, but not very durable!
on 21 October 2014
My oldest son loved this drill to bits (literally). He loved the noise it makes, the light that shines in the drill fitting, and the fact that you can change the direction of the drill with the switch on top. However, the fixings that hold the battery compartment on the bottom of the drill are (in my opinion) overly fragile for a toy that is meant to be 'played with' by enthusiastic young children. It only lasted a matter of weeks before the fixings broke and then we had to resort to selotape to hold the battery-box on. This was less than satisfactory as they wouldn't make a continuous connection, causing much frustration for my boy. After a year of complaining whenever he has got it out to play with I have chucked it in the bin. My youngest is now the right age to get one for Christmas, but I will be looking for one that doesn't have the batteries attached at the bottom like this - beware!
