Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! (Next favorite building toy?)

By Kelsey

0 from 0 review(s)

There were few toys from my childhood that I enjoyed more than my building toys. I loved everything from wooden blocks and Lincoln logs to a short stint I had with a brightly colored, oddly shaped building toy called Zoogs. Needless to say, I was excited to play with the Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! And take it for a spin.

Age Range: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 year olds

My Gears! Toy was sent to me frustration free from Amazon.com so there were no boxes or red tape to deal with. My playset was sent in a clear plastic bag and once opened it was ready to play. There were no batteries and no set up but there were also no instructions or suggested building structures. Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!

The Playtime Experience

There are several pieces in the Learning Resources play set. Several gears (obviously), several small rectangular extension pieces and a handle for turning the gears in whatever creation you can think up. I really liked playing with it and everything fit well together on the base it came with. There is virtually no end to what you can create and fit together. Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!

Things I Didn't Like

I really don’t like that this didn’t come with any suggested plans or machines that you can make perhaps this was an oversight since I did get it frustration free but I did miss having instructions.

Appropriate Ages

The Learning Resources Gears toy is recommended for all players above the age of three. There are no choking hazard pieces but the pieces go together a little more complicated than other building toys so some extra hand/eye coordination is helpful.

Final Note

I would definitely recommend the Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! To anyone in the market for a new and innovative building toy. This toy is a great puzzle and hand-eye coordination game and I really had a lot of fun playing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlNDw_u-0zQ (You may also like: QuadPro 570 Piece Brain Flakes Set (Building Bliss?))
