I received a Tomboy Tools Kit for purposes of evaluation. Thoughts are my own.
Ever since I was young, I’ve always wanted to fix things on my own. I know that my strength has limits, so while I try to do things by myself at first, I still call for help if I really can’t do it and I always make the most of tools like those from Tradefix Direct which can make light work of jobs. Through the years I’ve learned to do a lot of things because of this mentality. I go with this kind of mentality even for seemingly masculine tasks such as fixing our toilet and setting up our furniture. For bigger jobs you’ll need more significant tools such as bandsaws, so take a look at toildrop.com for reviews on all kinds of products.
If my hubby wants to be called the Handy Daddy, I want to be called the Handy Mommy. And Tomboy Tools offers the perfect set of tools for such moms like me.
Tomboy Tools strives to provide educational resources and opportunities for women (and girls) that will help inspire them and build their confidence in using tools. Most of Tomboy Tools’ product line of high-quality pink tools was designed in response to the growing demand of women wanting their own quality tools in pink, as well as give back to causes through the Pink for a Purpose initiative. Tomboy Tools works with ergonomic specialists, designers and manufacturers to provide tools that are effective, lightweight, durable, high-quality and comfortable for women.
Tomboy Tools by Angel graciously sent me the Pink Diamond w/o Toolbelt Kit so I can personally see and try the tools. The Pink Diamond Kit comes in a beautiful pink-and-black tool box which you can see below.
This Pink Diamond Kit comes with 16 tools, accessories and safety items, EXCEPT the Pink Tool Belt:
– pink tool box with a black carrying tray
– a 13oz magnetic head hammer
– a multi-bit ratchet screwdriver
– a 25ft fractional tape measure
– a quick-changing utility knife
– a mini hacksaw
– a torpedo level
– needlenose pliers
– slip joint pliers
– a mini pry bar
– rubber grip gloves (in small or medium)
– CE-certified safety glasses
– picture hanging set
– knee pads
– a carpenter’s pencil
– sanding block
And with these tools, I was able to switch out our old toilet seats with new ones, installed a toilet bidet, and even adjusted a new watch that was too big for my wrist. The fun thing about it is that these tools are in such a feminine color that tells me (and others) that these tools are mine. Very nice!
But beyond just the color of the tools, what makes me want to support this company is that they are building a community of women that support each other in their discovery of using such tools. They also give back to causes such as the Susan Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and Habitat for Humanity.
