Whoo two of this sort of thread in one day. I try to restrict myself but this got to me So my cousin was round and brought his kids, in the age old distraction method of put on TV we found there were some kid channels in among it all, or should I say advert deployment methods. I know it is the run up to Christmas but damn. Anyway one of the adverts was for the following toy http://realconstructiontoys.com/ Back when I were a lad, and ever since, if a kid past about five has shown any kind of interest in making stuff they always got a real tool kit. I did once get talked to for using my dad's saw when I was 6 or so -- I had used his tenon saw because it felt like a good size to me rather than the big saw. Going by the kid on the advert and assuming that is the intended range then in about two years that kid will have a moustache better than mine. Now building with foam is fun for all the family (see video below) but that did get to me, I know Doug Stanhope did say this generation will be the pussiest that has ever lived but I never really got it until now.
