A unique spin on magnetic toys, Switch & Spin Magnetic Gear Board lets kids build their own toy! Simply choose a picture template from 10 unique designs and place it in the wooden frame. Then add the gears in the color-coded spaces to turn each picture into an amazing kid-powered machine! Or remove the templates to reveal the white magnetic surface - perfect for an open-ended exploration of simple mechanics, or a range of counting, adding, and problem-solving activities (instructions included). This sturdy, durable gears toy includes a magnetic board with wooden frame, eight magnetic pegs, eight colorful gears, and five double-sided, color-coded design templates. Ages 2+.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not durable at all My two year old was able to rip the magnets off the pegs within a few days of getting this. We were not even able to play with it because the magnets kept falling off. What a waste.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I might buy something from you again. The magnets fell off immediately. Some weren't even glued together. Had to reglue them before my granddaughter could even play with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gear fun Such a fun toy. You can switch backgrounds and see how the gears move to each one. Be careful not to misplace the magnets and gears.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hands on Toy Spin magnetic gear board looks like a good gift for a 4 yr old instead of the usual electronic game.i bought for my grandson, 5 yrs, hope it holds his attention. Got it on sale for $16 so decided to buy it for him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging Totally engaging! I had fun playing with this toy. It has a magnetic board, gears and changeable pictures. And if you want to just put the magnet gears on the board without the picture you can do that too. The interchangeable pictures are a brilliant idea because they are key to keeping a child engaged. This is a fun multifaceted toy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! great to grow with! We love that you can re-arrange the spokes with the different pictures. The board is magnetic so it can also be used with other magnets, like letters and animals. My daughter just received this today and has been playing with it for hours!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good parent child activity This is a great interactive board. It was very easy for my 3 year old son to figure out. A lot of parts and pieces to keep track of, sigh, even for a very organized mom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great toy! Other than having a lot of pieces this is a great puzzle! There are many different pictures that can be switched out and put the cogs on that all store within the back of the wooden frame. Our 2 year old daughter loves to match the color on the black picture to the magnetic pegs to the corresponding cogs. The icing on the cake is that she gets to see all of the cogs spin at once when she's done!
