5.0 out of 5 stars Great construction toys for boys 23 Sep 2009

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
What do you buy them? Lego? Stickle bricks? Well these are a bit different and require the same skills of building things and fixing them together. I first bought these for my son when he was 2 and a half. At first he found it tricky to fit the parts in the holes but a year on and he is slotting everything together himself, so 3-3 and a half is a good starting age. What I like about this toy is that you can build something and make it move. Children can learn about cause and effect - "when you turn this handle this cog turns". Great little toy. The basic set packs away into a smallish box quite neatly.

Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! Beginner's Building SetFor kids of all ages! Something for all abilities with this toy - dads, 5 year-olds and pre-schoolers. My 2 grandsons just managed to get a look in and it kept everyone engrossed for ages. Sturdy construction and colourful. Definitely not something that will disappear into the back of the toy cupboard.

Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this and the Lights & Action set for my 4 and 6 year old boys. They love them and play with them regularly. At first it took a little bit of parental interaction in order to teach them the basics but now they are very happy playing with the sets on their own.

The only problem with the gears is the struts. Sometimes it can be very hard disconnecting the pieces, and two of the struts have split lengthways where the children tried to connect pieces together. I have written to the manufacturer and am awaiting a reply so I can't comment on the customer service.

A fabulous educational building toy. Children can start as basic as they want & build up to create masterpieces.
They are sturdy & durable and timeless.

Next day delivery was also wonderful.
I could not fault this item or delivery service.

5.0 out of 5 stars For mini engineers 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
My husband repairs watches and clocks so our 3 year old is fascinated with gears, he absolutely loves this as he thinks he is making his own clocks! The instruction booklet also has 3 good models in it to make and he adores the caterpillar. It is all really well made and robust and he has no trouble building with it.

Bought this for my nephew for Christmas- he is 3. Difficult to put together and take apart but with adult supervision he really enjoyed the gears game. Great that you can buy more to add on aswell.
