Educational Insights Design and Drill Activity Center
Kids are able to use the this gizmo to produce their own designs, or stick to the set's activity cards to make pictures and patterns from trains and boats to flowers and fish. All they must do is snap any one of the drill bits to the power drill or screwdriver handle, grab a handful of big bolts, and switch on the set.
It is easy to use and entertaining for preschool to early school age children. While kids have fun playing, they keep improving their fine motor skills and patterning. The set includes 3 bits for use with the drill or screwdriver handle and 5 different colored large screws. The drill has forward / off / reverse settings and makes drill sounds in a reasonable volume (thankfully!).

Educational Insights MathShark
Using electronic flash cards the MathShark puts kids through 8 different skill sets of mathematical prowess, in addition to subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and percentages. It also works as a fully functional calculator at the press of a button! The shape, colors, flashing lights, and beeps are typical reminiscent of a hand-held electronic game... which interests kids who might not otherwise be interested in practicing math. Smart (!)
The sound fortunately is unobtrusive, and will even be turned off! After each set an encouraging comment like "You made it happen!" or "Way to visit!" comes up on screen. The sets are timed, as well as your kid's score, for the way long it latched onto answer all the questions correctly, appears at the conclusion. Beating the MathShark is really as much fun as a game! Can you think of a better educational toy?
