  • All, My 11-year-old nephew has informed me that he's making himself a super hero outfit, and has asked for a few very specific things for Christmas: an adult-sized bullet-proof vest, pepper spray, a pistol, and a grappling hook. His dad is an experienced wood worker/mechanic/tinkerer, so my neph has been around tools and camping gear all his life. But of course I'm not going to get him a pistol or pepper spray. I've looked at various grappling hooks/climbing hooks, but am leery of getting him any of them available in my budget (about $20) because they just look too flimsy. So I'm thinking... multitool utility tool? Cool spy-type gadgets? Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks!

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
