Car Lover’s Engine Repair Set Is Every Young Gearhead’s Perfect Toy
Leave it to Hammacher Schlemmer to develop the perfect toys for every young car lover. This time it’s the Car Lover’s Engine Repair Set, so your kids can learn how to check their oil days after they learn how to walk. (Another great auto toy out of Hammacher Schlemmer recently was the Camaro Z28 Watkins Glen Raceway Track.)
The Car Lover’s Engine Repair Set, available now online, retails for $119.95 and teaches children the value in do-it-yourself car maintenance. Among the tasks that children at play can perform are brake tests, air filter replacements, and routine oil checks with a functioning dipstick. The play set features removable spark plugs, wing nuts, cowling, and more, and even lets gearheads-in-the-making turn the key in the ignition to listen to the engine purr. To top it off, the Car Lover’s Engine Repair Set comes with functioning horn and headlights.
The set comes with tike-sized tools, like a wrench and screwdriver. One downside, however, is the number of batteries required for operation—eight AAA batteries total.
The Car Lover’s Engine Repair Set is meant for children three and up—but adult gearheads, go ahead; we won’t judge if you play too.
