Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great motor skills toy We love our gears!!! Great tool for motor skills. Really makes them problem solve and use critical thinking. It is extremely durable and sometime a little tricky for their little hands to take apart but I would rather have that then it not be sturdy and fall apart. I think it's amazing the different ways I can build to make it a spinning tower or just a flat board of spinning gears. You can also challenge them by telling them only certain colors can go horizontal or vertical so they can problem solve their way through it or just let them have fun of their own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For big and little kids I love that my older kids can enjoy playing with this - as much as the younger guys. It's educational, stimulates inventiveness and can be used to build in an open- ended way. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from encourages creativity and teamwork We purchased these for our 4-5 yr old church classroom and the kids (and teachers) LOVE them. It encourages creativity and teamwork as the kids build together. It's great for boys and girls both!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating Toy for Preschoolers We received this as a gift and I think I love it as much as my son. I wasn't sure at first what to think of it but as soon as we set some up and starting turning the crank, we were both hooked. It is mesmerizing to watch and create. We are excited to build on with other kits, too! But, clicking the base pieces together is a little bit challenging and holding the base still while turning the crank can be tough. It's hard to not touch gears while holding the base steady, so you can end up stopping the whole thing from working. I'm sure as kids are older, they can solve the problem. But my 3.5 year old has me hold it down while he cranks the handle at full speed to his total delight.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Product, Too Difficult to Assemble I practiced building with this set before introducing it to my students for the school year. The base pieces especially were difficult, some of them I couldn't even make fit unless I forced them! Taking the pieces apart was difficult, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reminds me of my childhood I received this as a gift to use in my church nursery education program. I played with a toy similar to this when I was 4 and I'm thrilled that my Sunday school kids will have this experience. My mom, who got it for me, thinks asked for it for myself, which is partly true. I love it and I know the kids will too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grandson loves it! Grand kid loved it. Took to it right away. He loves gears. The only complaint I have is there were not enough of the six way axles to build the zig zag stairs pictured on the box. Other than that it is great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tough to put together I gave this to my 4.5-yr-old son for Christmas. I needed to help him put the green base pieces together (and I had trouble with it - even needed to use pliers for one section because it wouldn't pop together!) He immediately filled the first layer with gears, put the crank on and enjoyed spinning all of the pieces together. He didn't want me to build up - I think he liked just the pure flat layer of gears. But after we put it away, he hasn't wanted to play with it since. I think I'll let it sit for a while and will then try to reintroduce it and see if he has renewed interest, but it currently doesn't hold his attention for long. Other kids will likely react differently. I like the idea of this toy - hoping my son starts to like it more later!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!!! The product was much more durable than others I've seen on the market. My 3 year old grandson was able to assemble it easily except for the base. The only thing I would suggest changing is adding additional handles/cranks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from adult help needed my son had a blast with this toy although the instructions were very confusing and hard to follow. pieces were not easy to put together for him and i had to help quite a bit. taking them apart was even harder. i had to ask my husband for some strength. all in all good product but a bit frustrating at times

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My four-year-old grandson LOVED this set My four-year-old grandson LOVED this set but was sometimes frustrated that some of the parts were hard to put together and take apart. And it wasn't just him I had to ask a strong man for help in taking a few of them apart. Younger kids should have a great time playing with it if an adult or older child is on hand to help.
