Woodworking kits and tools for ages 3-10

Skip the pretend toolkits and give children a real construction experience!

With guidance, kids as young as 3 can grasp the basics. From real hand-tools sized for mini humans, to soft untreated wood, we’ve made it easy to kickstart their woodworking hobby.

Our ready-to-build projects are designed around their interests, like dino’s and helicopters, making it fun to learn.

Start learning the basics with our projects and graduate to imagining and building from scratch with our bulk boxes.

There’s nothing you need to go and source, we’ve done the hard work for you.

You’ll have us in your corner, introducing tools and techniques in the right order. So… let’s get building!

Loved by 1000s of kiwis


I bought this for the tamariki I work with and we were all so happy with it! It is so easy to use and works like a real tool, not just a toy.



This mini kit is awesome! I homeschool my neuro divergent 7 year old and he loved making this kit as part of our dinosaur unit. Great for practicing those gross and fine motor skills! High quality for a reasonable price.



The perfect set for our preschool carpentry learning. The tools are the perfect size for small hands and great quality. Highly recommend.

Kids Carpentry


Help your kiddo build their creation following our step by step guides. Every kit includes all the materials needed to complete the project.


Once they've put their creation together, they can paint, decorate and personalise it. There’s no such thing as too many googly eyes.

3. PLAY!

Let ‘em play! Add more kits to the collection to expand their skills and build imaginary worlds.

Kids don’t want more toys. They want a fun challenge.

If you’ve been around kids for 2 minutes… you’ll know that’s how long it takes for them to lose interest in a toy. Or skip the channel. Or say “I’m bored”...

Kids have more things to play with than ever. But there’s something missing...

They want you. Your company, and interest in them. They want to be able. To do things big people do. To keep up. They want a challenge...

That feeling of surprising themselves, mastering something, and excitedly telling each person who walks into the room...

Whether you had the chance to build with wood as a child, or wish someone had given you the opportunity, making treehuts and tinkering is part of our Kiwi DNA.

It’s up to us to share that with the next generation.

Let’s give them real tools to learn practical skills, grow self-esteem, and creatively express themselves. It’ll be worth it.

That look of concentration as they hammer in a nail, the delight as they see a build come to life, and the hugs for taking the time to help them...

Be the favourite aunty. The fun grandad. The greatest dad or mum. The bestest friend with the bestest birthday present in the whole wide world. Just as importantly, arm them with skills they’ll use forever.


My five year old grandson loved this for his birthday. He got mountains of lego and it was so nice to give him something that wasn’t plastic. Very fast service, couldn't recommend this more.


Hi! We’re Matt & Lou…

…your off-site building supervisors! We’re making woodwork easy for friends, family, and educators of little ones.

It started in 2014 when we ran a free building workshop for children in a local mall, and everybody asked us to keep the fun going. Or was it when Lou was teaching construction skills at her childcare centre, and on the hunt for kid-friendly supplies?

Maybe it harks back to the early days, both growing up with a hammer in our hands and a love for tinkering. All this lead us to launch Build With Me, using Matt’s engineering skills to create project kits for little learners.

We’ve used our experience to design kits that introduce the right tools, in the right order, with guidance as you go. In this world of plastic toys and screens, we love giving the next generation a chance to explore carpentry.

We’ve seen it fuel relationships, grow into a hobby, and become a lifeskill. You’ll love it, too. Go on… build with them!
