Wonderful Workshop

Your kid may be a few years shy of wood shop class, but you can still indulge his desire to build stuff -- and set him on the path of a master craftsman -- with this deluxe foam construction set. Best of all: there’s enough “wood” to make a ship, a helicopter, a dinosaur, all from the same set. Our 8-year-old twin kid testers, Matthew and Jared, initially thought it looked lame in the box, but once opened, they loved the real feel -- that they could actually “cut” the foam. ($40 at Toys "R" Us)
