    I knew that this was not going to be professional grade when I made the purchase however I was not prepared for the lack of quality in this product. It was purchased as a gift for a friend who is moving into a new place and didn’t have any tools what so ever and by the description this should have been a good tool set for her to use around the house. The case that the tools are contained in does not remain shut when latched and the tools do not stay in place inside the case. This is due to the poor job of molding the case. The tools themselves are very poor in quality, the pins in the pliers and the adjustment knob in the wrench are very loose. The tools are made from an inferior metal and do not seem like they will hold up to much use however the hammer does work as it should!

    Great Product, even better Company. Ok so I got these and I registered my tool kit about a week ago through the manufactures web site, but stated that the tools were awesome, but the carry case they came in had broken a day or too after I got it.(just the handle no biggy) . I thought nothing of it, it was just registering it that was all… and today I get a box with a brand new case for my tools. This is an amazing gesture and it totally made my day Thank you SOOOOO much I’m thrilled your company went out of its way to make this customer happy.

    Note: this rating would have been high regardless, because the tools are very handy I bought these because I was putting together dressers and new furniture for my home and didn’t want to do it all manually since I had a bunch of it to do . The screwdriver had enough charge right out of the box to do an entire dresser. which was awesome, Everything seems to be well made and I think I will get a ton of use out it.

    Since the description doesn’t tell you everything that was in it I will (since if your like me, I almost didn’t buy it because I wasn’t sure it had what all I would need) So:

    4.8-volt cordless screwdriver, with a UL recharger, also a one hundred fastener set(comes in little clear box, nails and screws etc.), 18mm utility knife, ten 1″ bits CRV (1/8″, 5/32″, 3/16″, 1/4″, PH1, PH2, PH3, PZ1, PZ2, PZ3), ten 1″ bits CRV (T10, T15, T20, T25, T27, T30, 1/8″, 5/32″, 3/16″, 1/4″), 8″ scissors, 8oz claw hammer, four screwdrivers (Phillips No. 1, No. 0, slotted 2.4mm, 3.0 mm), UL electrical tape, 6″ long nose pliers, 9″ plastic magnetic level, 12′ 5/8″ measuring tape, 6″ adjustable wrench, 2″ putty knife

    It is a great set for small jobs! If you want to build a house this is not set for you. Invest in a tool set equipped for larger jobs because this set is meant for things like hanging photos, putting up curtain rods, and putting together furniture. The hammer isn’t a full size but it gets the job done. I charged the power screwdriver for 5 hours and I hung my 3 rods and it work fabulously!!Now maybe this set won’t get away bc it is pink.

  4. MissHuston October 6, 2013

    Pink Apollo 135pc Tool Set. I LOVE my Pink Apollo 135pc Tool Set. I bought mine because I just moved into my own studio apt & I needed a tool set to put up pictures & put together furniture & stuff. I’m very satisfied w/my purchase & plan on purchasing more Pink tools to make my tool set nice & large =-)

  5. MichiganWonderland November 11, 2013

    Good Tool Kit. This is the perfect kit for small setups or repairs. The drill is not as powerful as I would like but it was good enough for hanging pictures curtains; mirror but not strong enough to get though studded in the wall. The screw drivers can be used for tiny things not for heavy duty screwing the drill could not do. Overall the Kit is made of good quality, strong material.

  6. msmgr December 2, 2013

    130 pc hand tool set. The product arrived after being ordered as a gift and looks like it came from my closet. there was not product wrapping or anything that makes it look as if it’s a new gift. -just a case.. no shrink wrap around it, no card board sleeve. disappointing. not sure about the quality of tools its self since this is a gift.

  7. whiskers187 December 11, 2013

    poor quality. Tools are made of poor quality materials. Tool box is decent.

  9. tryingtofindhappiness May 28, 2014

    just…….. just what I was looking for and I got what I expected. excellent product. quality tools at a good price. very happy with this purchase. you should buy it if you are looking for a good starter tool set.

  10. MsMamme August 13, 2014

    Right Size for Home Use. This tool set will work well for a person who don’t do a lot of repairs. It does no include screw drivers other than the ones to be used in the electric drill. Would be nicer if individual ones were included. I have also ordered the other set because I need the pliers and other tools as well.

  11. WallyDac August 19, 2014

    average cheap set. Well this is an ok set, for a around the house set. the tools are kind of cheap like.

    not sure if they will work too good.

    but I like that it is in a case. nice work.

  12. fagyh August 21, 2014

    Glowing Husband. well i only picked it up yesterday but gifted my husband and he’s GLOWING!!! he’s never had a “STANLEY TOOL KIT” before and it looks amazing!! and for this price, its AMAAAAAAAAAZING!

  13. brlonergan August 29, 2015

    Excellent. I’m extremely pleased with this set. The quality is great and the variety of tools superb. I just moved to a new (old) house and this toolbox contained everything I needed.

  14. Jeanne November 30, 2015

    Jeanne L. I love this tool kit..I purchased the pink one. It is just the right size, the color was pretty and the tools were heavy. The hammer felt good in my hand. I used tools when I had my business and these would have worked great!

  15. Vijaya May 2, 2016

    Quality product. Impressed with quality. Nice box. I wish it had adjustable wrench.

  16. Nanah June 16, 2016

    Do Not Purchase. This is a starter kit for children. Small tools, hammer is so small I laughed. Invest in good tools!

  17. Kim88 June 27, 2016

    Smaller than expected. The picture makes it look big, but actually so small as the size of a wallet. But my father in law loved it. It had what he needed and great to have around the house.

  18. joyce78 June 28, 2016

    smaller than i thought. alot smaller than i thought it would be

  19. vronca1 June 29, 2016

    small tools. The picture is deceiving, it makes the tools look average size. they are not. tools are small size.

  20. Rose September 17, 2016

    car tool essentials stalwart. Ineeded to buy my husband a basic car tool kit such as tire repair.this ptoduct fit the bill beautifully. Now I know he will be safe on the road as well as those stranded we may come upon wile driving.

  21. Momo October 10, 2016

    I like to help my Daddy. I have a soon to be four year old granddaughter who like to help dad with repairs around the house. She wanted pink! and it has the very basics she needs to help Dad. Some others I saw had way to much for her stuff. This will be perfect for when she is helping Dad and he can keep an eye on her!

  22. Con5987 November 6, 2016

    Disappointing. This is a set of miniature tools, but they are real tools. I did not expect the tools to be so small.

  23. redfeather December 10, 2016

    Great Buy. This tool set is perfect for the small jobs around the house and is very simple to travel with. Its a great stater kit for those with little or no tools. Great gift idea too.

  24. JWarner December 28, 2016

    Great gift. This was ordered for my mother in law! She just needed something small and with just the main tools! She loves it!

  25. Dep983 December 30, 2016

    Handy. Small tools, light weight, good for minor jobs! Fits in backpack!

  26. Mels2601 December 31, 2016

    Good. Good product. Arrived on time

  27. Carolyn March 21, 2017

    My tools. Now I can do my own thing with my tools love them

  28. unhappy September 13, 2017

    Perfect. I am a female who can do a lot of home repairs. My life style has changed and I do a lot less around the house now. This kit is perfect for small jobs and maybe some moderate fixes as well. I was surprised at how nice the set up was when it arrived. Pink is my favorite color too.

  29. JohnTheHandyman October 1, 2017

    Helpful tool set. Am building manager of a long-established volunteer dog training club. This set was given to the club over 10 yrs. ago. Two of the tabs were off before I started using it. The variety of screwdriver bits are very useful. The pliers in our kit seem to been of sturdy quality, our tools ‘click’ into their locations, all tools have been used for repairs and saves me from hauling in my boxes of tolls. Only complaint is lost ball bearing in screwdriver that holds in bits.

  30. cielo October 13, 2017

    meet my needs. I buy it tools for changing the tube of my bike. They work well.

  31. arasgnma December 5, 2017

    Such a cute idea for young ladies!! We got this for our granddaughter that just moved into her first apartment in case she needed anything fixed when no one was there to assist her

  32. bearmilk4u March 15, 2018

    Stanley mixed tool set well worth the buy . real nice set for the price and the storage makes it well worth the buy

  33. Gmob March 30, 2018

    Tools are good, case needs work. This tool set has all the tools i need to get my job done. Only problem I have is that on day one the lock for the case broke. It is now hard to carry the set with me when going into a home because it will not stay closed. I will give this set 5 stars if i can get this fixed. Thank you

  34. TexasGrandmother April 7, 2018

    Great little basic tool set. We put these in Operation Christmas Child boxes to send overseas. Gives an older boy a few simple tools of his own.

  35. TracyD0069 April 11, 2018

    Nice! A variety of items!!

  36. Kenneth May 5, 2018

    Got this to keep in my truck. Great little tool kit.&

  37. HAPPEGOLUCKY June 12, 2018

    Let the wife think it’s for her. Good for inside tools, everything you need. Won’t get mixed up with my outside tools.

  38. Ernie July 15, 2018
  39. Bebbie August 17, 2018

    great wedding gift for the man! nice tool box (hard plastic) and many tools for a wonderfully basic wedding gift to new hubby! Nicely displayed and perfect for on-hand jobs in new marraige.

  40. Gio79 November 12, 2018

    Awesome tool kit!! I love these tools!! Everything I need is all compact in the tool box and the pink color is the best!!

  41. MaryN November 27, 2018

    Great Quality and Price! Great, versatile tool kit for everyday repairs and assembly around the house. Love it! It’s so convenient to have it all in one little case and includes almost every tool you’ll need (including those to put together, tighten or repair “assemble yourself” type projects that require all those unusually shaped drivers that cost a fortune to buy indivually when you need them). A must have for anyone with their own place, and a perfect gift for the first time homeowner.

  42. McKathryn December 25, 2018

    Nice enough. Pretty good tool box. It’s not large enough to fit my drill however, and doesn’t come with a box cutter. But it’s a nice selection of hand tools and I love love love the pink box.

  43. Nms13 January 30, 2019

    Love it. It’s very good but the screwdriver is not very powerful. It come very fast I recommend this product.

  44. JustMe April 8, 2019

    Perfect first tool kit! This was a gift for a handy nine year old boy. It is perfect for his needs! He has used it to tighten up a loose door jamb, nail together a basic birdhouse of his own design, measure his closet to see if a closet organizer would fit, and many other things. We looked at many tool kits for young people, but this tool kit for adults is easy enough for him to use, without having an overwhelming amount of tools.

  46. Ladyleo June 17, 2019

    Perfect Gift. This is great for around the house repairs. This was one of the beat gifts we could have given my husbandfather for Father’s Day. He loves it.

  47. Gina June 19, 2019

    Perfect gift for a bridal shower. Every new bride needs her own tools around the house!

  48. PSC July 11, 2019

    good. Just what I need around the house for small projects.

  49. Lisa August 13, 2019

  52. GorgeousShay September 16, 2019

    I LOVE IT BUT NOT MY FAVORITE COLOR. i love it , Its so cute i find it very handy although pink is not my favorite color blue is but this do come in handy

    Household Tool Set. This item was to be included in a package going to Armenia. It looked like it would be very useful.

  55. Sparky November 26, 2019

    Convenient tool set. This is a very convenient tool set. It has most of the tools that you will normally use. This set is not for a carpenter but the average person who needs basic tools. The bag is very nice and you can fit more tools in there as well.

  56. Pearls81 November 28, 2019

    Convenient Tool Kit! I am a Walmart Spark Reviewer, and I had the pleasure of reviewing the WorkPro 199-Piece Home Repair Tool Kit. This kit is very handy for the household. The tools are stored in a beautiful carrying case. It contains all I need to do projects around the house. The case is not heavy, therefore, very mobile. I love the leveler that will make projects must easier to complete.

  57. sayno November 28, 2019

    Home Repair Tool Kit. This basic tool kit Can handle just about any minor household repair with this the exception of plumbing or electrical major work.. I have better quality tools but they’re scattered between work, my truck or somewhere in the garage,or shed.. So I noticed First of All that these tools are not a expensive tool kit set but I could keep them close by and that the kit has enough items included in it to handle those little repairs or installations that all Repairmen have to deal with from time to time. This tool kit fits the bill perfectly. I noticed that the Yellow tool bag is well made with Double stitching in the well used areas, the Zipper is a quality dual Zipper set up, and the Bag is well cushioned to hold the Entire Tool aray in a balanced set up. I have Already used it to fix & do a Vacuum cleaner repair and a minor repair on my vehicle, and that this Kit has everything I needed to do the job. Don’t expect Snap-On quality tools, because these aren’t on the same level. But I’d like to say they’re a must-have for those random household jobs.I will recommend this Home repair Kit for keeping all of my needed tools in a convenient pouch when I need to a quick service or repair.

  58. TheHedge November 29, 2019

    Great Tool Kit. The WorkPro 199-Piece Home Repair Tool Kit is quite handy and a MUST to have if you live in any kind of a structure, like a house or apartment or mobile home. Own it or rent it, you are going to need a few tools for repairs and personalizing the place. This is it! The WorkPro 199-Piece Home Repair Tool Kit has quickly become my “go to” tools for home repairs, hanging pictures and also for assembling things. I added a stud finder and a larger assortment of picture hanging devices and it is all set! The bag makes the WorkPro 199-Piece Home Repair Tool Kit very convenient to keep in the house. No need to go out in the garage or storage room to dig around for the proper tools.The included hammer is the perfect size for hammering small nails into sheet rock, it is not so big and heavy that it damages the sheet rock. All in all the WorkPro 199-Piece Home Repair Tool Kit is quite handy. I would recommend this tool set to anyone needing a few tools to get on with life!

  59. Rinoman November 30, 2019

    One Stop Home Tool Kit. The WorkPro 199 Piece Home Repair Tool Kit reminds me of a doctor’s home visit bag. This kits comes loaded with all the items a person would need to do simple home repairs. I love the 33 all purpose bits that range for standard Phillips to Hex. This is a great kit for the person that is getting their first place or for that college student getting an off campus residence. One of the coolest things about this kit is that everything has a place in the bag and all the tools are easy to place back in their holders. It comes with a tape measure, hammer, and level which come in very handy for hanging pictures. The kit could also work well for the car. Make sure you write your name on the bag because it will disappear from someone borrowing it.

  60. Kash December 1, 2019

    Great tool kit for beginners. Was pleasantly surprised to open this kit to see all the tools it contained. It included tape measurer , hammer, nails , scissors, wrench etc . All the basics for basic repairs around the house . This is perfect for me being a single female moving into my own place shortly . This will definitely come in handy .

  61. Carol December 2, 2019

    WorkPro 199 Piece Home Repair Tool Kit. The WorkPro 199 piece home repair tool kit has everything available for you to perform repair jobs in your home. The tools are very well made and sturdy. I love the bag all the tools come in. Very convenient that everything is at your fingertips. No need to have to run all over the house to find everything. This would make a wonderful gift for a do it you self home owner or just plain do it yourselfer. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

  62. Diane December 2, 2019

    Basic home tools. This home repair tool kit has a lot of the basic tools that may
    be needed for around the house. The multi screw driver bits
    will be very useful . The tools are of decent quality, not the best
    but for the basic home owner to tighten and secure , they should
    Do the job.

  63. sharkansas December 4, 2019

    Handy little tool kit. I like this tool kit because it’s lightweight and has everything you need in it to do little chores around the house. It has a screwdriver (with multiple change-out tips), hammer, level, tape measure, and lots of other useful tools. Many of the “199 pieces” are in the box of screws and other small attaching devices. You aren’t going to build a house with this kit, but it is perfect for tightening up doorknobs, hanging pictures and doing all of those little jobs that come up in home maintenance. I’ve had other tool kits that were so heavy I couldn’t pick them up and some that had nothing I need in them or were hard to store. This one keeps everything together neatly. Even my husband who has a shop full of tools uses this in the house because,” the tool you will use is the one handiest.” This tool kit keeps it all handy.

  64. jay December 6, 2019

    Sent Used Tools! I opened the package the day it arrived only to find that it has obvious signs that its been used before. Only the wrech and hammer were wrapped in plastic. There were scratches and fingerprints, not to mention that some of the tools were rusty!!

  65. Lisa December 10, 2019

    Great pink tool set. Definitely great price. Very heavy duty tools. Very pleased.

  66. NewEnglander2014 December 21, 2019

    Just right tool kit for home just add plyers. I was surprised with this kit because it didn’t have plyers. As a basic repair tool kit, plyers are one of the go to tools. Yep it has a box knife which is great filled with a break off blades. The bag it comes with is great with 2 outer pockets and one main storage pocket. It is durable and useful to keep your go to tools all together. The small screwdrivers come in a plastic box that will not remain closed. I went with the rubber band to keep it from popping open. The hammer is not a full weight heavy duty but works well if you are not planning to use to hammer a lot of long nails to build a deck or something. The hardware picture hooks and nails are good for light weight pictures, but this is not a tool set for carpenter. It’s perfect for small tasks around the home just buy a pair of plyers to add to the set and you will have what you need.

  67. Carrie January 1, 2020

    Great for kids or travel. Bought for 5 yr old. Exactly what we expected. Smaller than normal size tools. Good quality material. Nice carrying case. Good starter set for her. Would be great for in the car too.

  68. Toolbox January 7, 2020

  74. John316 April 1, 2020

    Great tools but… The carrying box is terrible handle broke a week after having it and lock broke a month later, and they don’t cover the box

  75. dylan April 3, 2020

    great buy tho. the hammer broke but otherwise all good

  76. VmaxKen April 5, 2020

    All the basics – good for price paid. Nice for light duty ‘house’ use. St leact I get to put my ugly metal tool box back in the garage – (made wife happy) Probably the best kit for teaching youngsters the correct use of tools.

    Kenny Cresci

  77. MightyMama April 6, 2020

    Perfect tool set for the single woman. Perfect tool set for the single woman. I bought this when my husband and I split as a basic tool set with a little bit of everything. The quality is good and the case is strong (a common complaint about other sets I looked at). I recommend it!

  78. Sandy April 6, 2020

    A Wonderful Gift. We bought this for our daughter’s housewarming. She absolutely loves it!

  79. regina April 6, 2020
  80. CAROLE April 15, 2020

    Good …but. Perfect as a gift for new med school student. Unfortunately still needed regular and needle nose pliers.

  81. Michelle April 15, 2020

    Used the hammer and screwdrivers the day I got it and I love them so far. They’re easier on my hands than other screwdrivers .

  82. shortylb69 April 17, 2020

    Loving It. Live that I have all the tools I need in a handy dandy case!

  83. Topher April 20, 2020

    Gramshopper. My pre-reading of others very positive had Me Also Purchase THIS toolset over others seen online. This tool set Is Fantastic……for sure a hidden secret of Walmart stock!! It’s definitely strong, has many useful pieces, and has a space saving storage case to keep everything ready for your next tool need. You won’t go wrong with this toolset purchase!!

  92. eva May 5, 2020

    The screw driver isn’t the best everything else works fine though

  93. veronica May 5, 2020
