A great set that encourages children to use imagination and logic to think assembly through!
Children will have fun assembling, taking apart, and reassembling the nuts and bolts. Little fingers gain dexterity and strength. Mixing and matching pieces in different arrangements leads to creative intellectual growth!

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 2 years of age.
We purchased this set for our son's second birthday and it has been a huge hit. He loves carrying them around the house to play with and they make a great travel toy. He is mechanically minded and figured them out right away but is still extremely interested in them. The only con is that one of the bolt portions doesn't seem flush with the nuts so it won't sit upright but he doesn't seem to mind.
My rating of Nuts & Bolts
Posted 1/8/2011 by Sarah Greene
Nuts and bolts was purchased for an almost two-year old. It is too complicated for him a this time. He did not understand the concept or have the dexterity to turn the pieces many times to get them to come off or go on. On the other hand, grandma had a great time taking it apart and putting together to figure out all the different combinations. I think he will like it better when he is a little older.
this is a great quality toy. I like the feel of the wood. It's smooth and cool to the touch, and my granddaughter seems to enjoy the feel of it as much as I do. She likes to keep her hands busy and nuts and bolts does the trick and appeals to her desire to keep things moving.
My son is 2 and 4 month and does not seem to have enough dexterity to screw and unscrew these. He would pick up to play with them and bring to me for help. I like the toy and will hide it for later use
