Meet Mechan-Iggle! Mechan-Iggle has always loved tools, even as a child. He used to pick them up and tell his dad what they were called, learning about what each one did from electrician's tools through eight other types!

When he got older, his dad showed him how tools could help bring cars back to life. Mechan-Iggle visited car shows, motor museums, and he learned all about different vehicles from lorries to classic cars. He learned and he learned until there was very little he didn't know.

But it can get very lonely working on your own so when his dad asks him if he wants to join his team of mechanics, Mechan-Iggle knows that it's far better to be part of a team and to share what you know to help others. That's what puts a smile on his face at the end of the day!

Mechan-Iggle is a team man - how about you?
