"you still have to be taught how to use a hammer"

Not really true. Stick an eighteen(ish) month old child in front of a "captive nail" kiddie's workbench and hand them the included plastic hammer. Most will soon be bashing the nails in all by themselves, with the hammer oriented in the correct direction. Many will actually figure out how to turn the thing so they can start over, again all by themselves. Don't just take my word for it, try it. I've won bar bets with this one ...
