New Review!!! Tomahawk Kit from Corps of Re-Discovery

Well, hello there!!!  I'm so glad you stopped by!  :)  I bet you'd like to get my posts delivered right to your inbox, now wouldn't you?  So why not sign up for Feedburner?  Check it out, it's right there in my sidebar!  Thanks!!  :)

About the product/service: As part of the TOS Homeschool Crew I received a tomahawk kit from Corps of Re-Discovery so I could let my kids put it together and then give my humble and honest opinion of it!  ;0  This is a simple little kit that allows you to assemble the tomahawk below: 

Corps of Re-Discovery is a really cool family business that hopes you will be encouraged to rediscover our country's rich history with the help of their many project kits.  With these kits you'll gain an even greater appreciation of our history as you learn about American Indians, Frontiersmen, and Pioneer Americans.  You can learn more about the company and the family behind it here.

And just to let ya know, other members of the TOS Crew also reviewed a patchwork quilt kit, a corn husk doll kit, or a fringe pouch kit.  Make sure you check the Crew blog to see what they have to say!

What are the pros of this product? It was simple to put together and, amazingly, after over a month, is still actually together.  :)

What's not to like? The only thing I can think of to say that could be negative is that it didn't take long at all to put it together.  Not a real negative, I guess, just something I thought I'd say in case you were looking for a craft that will keep the kids busy for a while.  Of course, it can be played with once it's made!  :)

The Crazy Mom take:  I decided to let Baber, 7, put the tomahawk together with the help of big sister Princess, 12.  It really was simple to do, although I don't think Baber could have done it completely by himself.  It was a nice little treat to be able to give him something fun to do.  Now my son, Dode Man, 11, is asking for the Lewis and Clark kit.  I could spend a fortune at this site.  (Too bad I don't have a fortune, but I will keep it in mind for Christmas gifts.)

When it comes down to it, this site is pretty cool and the prices seem very reasonable.  I like it!!!  :)

What's the bottom line?  $7.00 retail/$5.50 from the Corp of Re-Discovery website

I am going to give Corps of Re-Discovery 5 out of 5 smileys!!!

Check it out!

See what my fellow TOS Crew members have to say @

*The Smiley System:

I can't really recommend this product.

I doubt this product would be helpful to many people.

This is a good product, but isn't right for everyone.

Most homeschool moms will find this useful.

This is great, and I would recommend it to anyone!!!

Disclaimer!!! I reviewed this product because I am a member of The Old Schoolhouse Homeschool Crew. I was given the product by the vendor to use and evaluate in my home so that I might share my insights with others. Other than receiving the product, which I kinda have to to be able to assess the product, I am not compensated for my reviews in any way. I am in no way obligated to give a positive review. I do try to point out negatives when I see them, though I am admittedly a pretty easy going gal! What you read are my honest assessments of the products I receive.

As with all products, you must do the research before buying. Please visit the the other crew members' blogs, the vendor websites, and any other review sites you might find before buying. I can't guarantee that a product will work for you. You must decide what will fit with your teaching style, and your child(ren)'s learning style(s). I do not judge anything other than the educational value of the products I review. I am not qualified to make judgements as to the safely of any product, and I make no guarantee that the products I review are safe for you, your family, or anyone else. I am simply giving my opinion; only you know what is best for you and your family.

Don't use your blow dryer while you sleep or take a bath. Don't read my reviews in the tub either, and please do not read them when you are asleep, though I do not guarantee that you won't fall asleep reading them!

  1. I'm glad y'all liked the tomahawk. We liked the fringe pouch kit here, but I was glad we didn't receive the tomahawk since my son had already made one at Philmont Scout Ranch. :)

  2. Is the tomahawk a bad thing for a gal called "crazy mom"? LOL
    We enjoyed this one the most-well the boy did. I want to get him the black leather'd one too, then he can be Daniel Boone on tomahawk steroids! LOL

    The coin purse isn't too spency-that was a fun one too. Good stocking stuffer!

    Nice review Crazy Mom!
