Thank you to Reeves International for providing complimentary Red Toolbox toys samples for us to base this review upon and for providing an additional product for our contest prize.  All opinions expressed are my own.

My 6 ½ year old son, Quinn, loves to get his hands dirty and to work on projects with his dad, Mike. When I saw the items Reeves International has to offer, I knew it was right up their alley. We were sent the Red Toolbox 8-Piece Toolset and the Red Toolbox Billiard Table to try out and review, and we are so glad we did.

The Red Toolbox 8-Piece Toolset contains 2 Phillips head screwdrivers, a hammer, hand saw, bar clamp, file, tape measure, and safety goggles.  All the tools are appropriately sized for smaller hands. These tools are all very sturdy and can be used on woodworking projects because they are real tools. The hand saw is duller than a real, adult hand saw, but that’s for obvious reasons.


When we received our toolset, Quinn was so excited to have his own set of tools and couldn’t wait to start working on projects so they immediately got everything out and started sawing and nailing and doing other “manly” things. Their first real project was the Billiard Table.

The Red Toolbox Billiard Table is a miniature version of the real thing, but it’s unique because it comes completely disassembled and must be put together before play. Mike, Quinn, and even my 12 year old son, Avery, got right in there and started working on the pool table. There were a lot of screws to be driven, hammering, and even sanding to be done to get the table built. It did require adult supervision, but both boys got in there and helped plenty too. In all, it only took about an hour to complete the entire Billiard Table, which they think was time well spent.

The table now gets played with pretty much every day and they love it. It came with the balls, rack, 2 cues, chalk, and even a brush for the table so it really is a mini-version of traditional pool. It has provided many hours of entertainment among us and our guests and we love having this table to practice on.

This year, our Holiday Toy Gift Guide features the Red Toolbox tools and billiard table kit as top gift ideas for children 8 years and older.  These and a wide variety of other Red Toolbox items can be purchased at www.reevesintl.com. The 8 Piece Toolset retails for $39.99 and the Billiard Table for $49.99.
