We’ve seen many kids toys modeled after real tools, but a toy welding set has to be the most obscure yet. Whether you’re a full-time welder or just a hobbyist, if you want to get your kids interested in a skill that’ll serve them well for a lifetime, maybe put this under the tree.
The head of the toy welding torch glows, and the handle vibrates to simulate welding. Three AA batteries power the torch and are included with the set. It also comes with a pretend sparker, an industrial-style welding mask, and welder’s gloves.
It should be obvious but we’ll say it anyway: the gloves and mask shouldn’t be used for real welding. The set also contains small parts that could be a choking hazard for children 3 and under.
You’ll pay about $14 for this set at Sears.
