Forget Dumb Toys For Christmas; Get Your Kid THIS Car

Forget dumb kids' toys with a single function and five whole minutes of distraction before they've expended their usefulness outside the box. Give them a car to work on instead.

But you don't have to let your precious Volvo end up in pieces in the garage either. According to Gizmodo, Hammacher Schlemmer is selling "The Car Lover's Engine Repair Set", which can introduce your tiny, tool-wielding tyke to the wonderful world of automotive repair in a less dangerous, oil-staining, and destructive environment.

The $120 playset mimics the front section of a vehicle and allows your little grease monkey to get up to his or her elbows in the fascinating realm of routine maintenance with mock oil changes, air filter swaps, spark plug removals, and brake tests, among other things. Your kid can even turn on the engine to see how it sounds afterwards. No Monster High dolls for your teeny tot this Christmas.

Anyone have 8 AAA batteries to spare?
