As parents, we live out a constant balancing act. On one hand, we want to please our children with the flashy, “works today, but broken tomorrow” toys that they ask for. On the other hand, we’d prefer to buy them things that are educational, worth-while, and will last them a lifetime. JM Cremps is committed to leveling the playing field so that both sides of this struggle come out on top. One of the products that will please both kids and parents, is the Kids Tool Kit from Grip On.
The only difference between dad’s tools and the tools in the Grip On Kids Tool Kit is size. The Grip On tools are made specifically to fit smaller hands. This custom design means that little hands can expertly wield these tools. When a child is using tools that fit their hands, they can confidently and comfortably complete tasks that would be too difficult with bigger and heavier tools. Imagine if you tried to pound a finishing nail with a huge mallet? It wouldn’t be very easy! That’s what it is like for a kid when they grab dad’s hammer. It just doesn’t work.
The 9-piece tool kit has the basic tools necessary for most simple projects and fix-it chores. However, there is one major difference between these tools and the average kids tools – quality. Most kid’s tools are designed to be playthings. These tools are the real deal and will do the job that dad’s tools will do. They are built to last with quality components, not cheap plastic and thin metal.
These tools are a perfect gift for your little carpenter. One grandma wrote, “I purchased these as a gift for my granddaughter, and discovered that these are good, high-quality tools – much better than you can buy at a discount store. In fact, the adjustable wrench that came in this set works better than my “name brand” wrenches! If your child or grandchild likes to help out, and you’re thinking about a set, you won’t go wrong with these. You may even want them for yourself!”
As with any real tool or kids tool set, safety must considered. What we’ve found is that because these tools are real, many parents have removed the scissors before giving the set to their child. The scissors included in this set are sharp, and may not be appropriate for younger children. There are eight tools in the set, and they come is a soft-sided tool bag that is just as durable and well-made as the tools themselves.
The Grip On 9-piece Kids Tool Kit includes:
- Phillip’s screw driver
- Needle-nose pliers
- 12ft Tape measure
- 7 oz. Claw hammer
- 6″ adjustable wrench
- Slip-joint pliers
- Soft-sided tool bag with easy-carry handles
This tool set is the perfect set for our Tool Box Project. If you are looking for an easy and fun woodworking project, download the instructions and get started. It’s the perfect father and son activity.

How do you rationalize selling the Grip Tool Kit when it states, “This product contains chemicals known to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm?” I would like to buy it for our grandkids, but I can’t ignore the warning.
In 1986, the State of California voters passed Proposition 65, “The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986”. Part of that law is the requirement that any product or article that contains any of the substances on their “substances” list must have the warning you referred to on the product or packaging. The list changes frequently with items being both added and removed. Currently there are over 22 pages of substances, and there are thousands and thousands of everyday products that comply with that labeling requirement.
We are all bombarded daily with warnings and hazards. I noticed that my cup of coffee from my local drive-through comes with a dire warning about the dangers of scalding and hot liquids with the word DANGER in bold letters, but after considering it for a moment, I continued to sip my coffee. We think the wonderful parents and grandparents who are our customers will use the labeling laws that we must comply with as another tool in their decision making process as to what is best for their children and grandchildren.
