Bob Blu-haired Anime Protagonist

Tool Toons: Adventures of Bob the Blue-Haired Anime Protagonist

It was yet another quiet day in Bob’s apartment. The man with the unnatural-but-still-cool-looking blue hair stared out of his window. Bob loved tools because they were colorful and cool—just like him. In fact, he used tools in his daily life, such as the power drill he used to get his hair just right every […]

Tool Toons: Harly and the Backpack Blower

It’s time for another guest post from our resident Tool Kid, Caleb DeBoer. We occasionally give Caleb a tool topic to write about (this month it was cordless backpack blowers), and he goes to town writing a story.

Tool Toons: The Dogs and the Hammerhead 4V Screwdriver

One day, the Power Pups (remember them from my last story?) were using a Hammerhead 4V screwdriver to do some minor maintenance around their secret base.

Harly and the Klein Glow in the Dark Pliers

Harly was on a top secret mission. He was to seek and destroy the cat’s evil lair. This was no easy task because the base was surrounded in barbed wire, and Harly had to get in at midnight, when it was pitch-dark. He was going at 11:00 because it took one hour to get there. […]

Tool Toons: Holly Gets Robbed!

Once again I gave my 10-year old son a tool and he concocted the following story, again revolving around his favorite topic: super dogs. This month’s tool was a DeWalt 20V Hammer Drill, and the story…? Well that took on a life of its own. As usual, there was only a minimal amount of text […]
