Someone got a Handy Manny toolbox for Christmas. I know it was recommended for ages 3+, but I play it free and loose like that, and it didn't have any small parts to choke on. I was vindicated tonight when I witnessed this little spontaneous scene playing out on my family room floor. I don't think anyone explained to him what to do with the tools. Nonetheless, he took them over to the molding being used as part of our mantle/surround and started banging away at it. 8.75 month old genius? In my completely biased opinion...YES.
