Take-A-Part Toys By Battat

Take-A-Part Toys By Battat

On our recent trip to San Diego, Mini immediately gravitated towards one of these Battat Take-A-Part toys at Horton Toy in Horton Plaza. I had never seen them before, and wow are they awesome. I have located three different kinds of these toys that allow kids to take apart and put them together on Amazon (all of these are affiliate links, FYI, so if you want to avoid clicking on these you can google Battat and probably find them that way), they are listed below.

  1. Airplane.

    This is the one Mini got, the Airplane model. Now some people like to have wooden toys that aren’t made in China and all that, and those are fine, but there are sometimes when you don’t mind so much having a good old plastic toy because of the cool stuff it allows you to do, like learn about how things work, mechanically speaking.
  2. Crane.

    Your kid can take them apart and put them back together with the included simple drill and drill bits. Each kit and toy (plane, truck, etc.) consists of five or six easily interlocking pieces with big screws that are great for three or four year olds to work with, giving them good spatial and mechanical skills and plus, it’s fun.
  3. Truck.

    There’s a bit of a learning curve for newly turned 3-year-olds using the drill for the whole righty-tighty lefty-loosey thing, but Mini seemed to get the whole thing down pretty quickly. Overall a really cool toy and would make a great gift that people probably are not likely to already have in their collection.

    Dumb question, maybe, but would these still be interesting to a newly-turned four-year-old? I’m blanking on a good gift for my nephew, and these are so adorable.

    Yes, I think so, because Mini had a five year old friend over the other day and we had to take it away from them at one point because they kept fighting over who got to play with it. LOL.

    Those are really cool. I think my daughter would like them and she has a birthday coming up! She wants Barbies but frankly she’s too young and all she would do is strip them down naked and lose their clothes and shoes. Trust me I know because someone gave her a Tinkerbell doll that was similar to a Barbie and it’s fully naked, pieces are lost and the dogs have chewed on the fingers.

    She really loves tools and trucks. I bought her two or three of the Handy Manny things but they are just way over her head. My nephew has the same problem. I think they could both use these.

    These are great because the pieces are pretty big so they’re not too hard to keep from losing, unlike most of Mini’s toys.
