Initial thoughts: This is a wonderful first lacing set. You get four large foam pieces in the shape of tools(a saw, hammer, drill and paintbrush). You also get five different coloured laces. The idea is to thread the lace in and out of the holes in each tool. You can also lace all the tools together – which is a handy way of keeping things tidy at the end of the day. It’s suitable for age three upwards.

We liked: It’s brilliant for teaching early motor skills, and Presley sat and concentrated for ages the first time he played with this toy, and worked out how to push the lace through and back again. now when it all goes quiet in the next room, he’s more likely to be lacing than going through my handbag! We really like that this set features tools – so many lacing sets are pink and girlie!

We weren’t so keen: Erm, we can’t really fault this toy. At a push, we’re not sure Presley has realised the shapes are actually tools, but I’m not sure that matters. Actually, maybe it’s a good thing he hasn’t worked out he could hit his brother with the hammer!

Overall: The My First Lacing Tools set is a lovely present for a young child, and one that gives you a lot of toy for your money. It’s going to get lots of play, and is robust enough to still be around for the next child.
