Product Description

Playskool Busy Gears

From the Manufacturer

Encourage hands-on exploration and discovery with electronic gears that go round 'n round, flashing lights and happy songs! The interchangeable gears can also be stacked, sorted and re-arranged. An automatic "shut-off" helps conserve battery life, and a convenient carry handle makes it easy to take on the go!

When you push the buttons the gears spin, and there is music.

Verified Purchase
I was hoping that this toy would be a little more hands on and allow the child to move the gears himself to figure out how they cause each other to turn. It is a bit more lights, sounds, and electronic movement than I hoped, and doesn't leave much room for creativity. I was hoping that it could offer multiple ways to place the gears, but gear placement is limited. My 2 year old does enjoy it for a few minutes, but usually moves on from it once he's removed and put the gears back on a few times. Although the gears can also be stacked, they are a bit unstable in the stacked position.

My daughter Hannah received this as a gift for her first birthday. She loves the music and presses the button to just listen to it play. We didn't think she'd figure out the gears, but she absolutely loves it! she takes the gears off and puts them back on! She totes them around the house in her little basket, and then brings them back to put on the toy. She'll sit in front of this toy for 20 minutes at a time, walk away and then come back to play some more.

My only issue is that the gears are starting to get lost around our house. Hasbro should provide a few extra gears for when the first few get lost. Overall a terrific toy!!

My son received this toy for his first birthday! I will be purchasing it as gifts for all my friends!! He LOVES pushing the button and listening the the music. I was wondering if he would be able to figure out the gears, but he has caught on very quickly and loves to take the gears off and put them back on. He also enjoys stacking the gears up and watching them go around! I like that it has a handle so he can carry it around with him. It keeps him involved for up to 20 minutes at a time!

It is very durable as he carries it around, has chewed on the gears (which are made of strong plastic and cannot be marred by chewing on them).

My three year old also likes to play with it! Her play is a little sofisticated with it as she tries to figure out which gears have to be put where (as in, do they have to be next to the middle spinning one) placed to make them spin and how many can be stacked and they still turn.

My one wish is that Playskool would include a few extra gears. We have them everyhwere in our house and cannot always find them all. It would be great if they had a place where you could purchase extra ones for replacements and/or to have extras for stacking.

This is an awesome toy that the kids love, can learn from, and is very durable! It is a must have!!

I purchased this toy for my one year old after reading glowing reviews. The toy is okay but not terrific. It holds my child's attention for a much shorter time than her other toys, although other children may enjoy it more.

Pros
- The turning mechanism is safe enough not to pinch little fingers, just a little bit of pressure stops them from turning.
- Taking the gears on and off encourages dexterity.

Cons
- The music is terribly annoying after a short while (although this is true of most baby toys).
- The toy can't be carried by the handle because the gears fall off.
- There are no spare gears provided so unless you are very diligent about keeping this toy together some will be lost.

We bought this for my son when he was about 7 months old and he loved it immediately. He liked pulling off the gears and watching them spin around. Now that he's almost 17 months, he loves pushing the button, removing and rearranging the gears, and toting the whole thing around. We try to keep only a few toys at a time out for him to play with and this one tends to get pulled out regularly (by him). A bonus for dad and I is that the music is not too loud and the songs are not annoying! I highly recommend this one!!

My one year old has had this toy for about 4 months now and it's still his favorite toy. There is no end to the amount of fun my child has with this toy and he keeps coming up with new ways to play with it. It's hours of endless entertainment!

I got this toy for my daughter when she was not quite a year and she has loved it from day one! She loves the bright colors of the gears and the music is not obnoxious, even after the 4 millionth play. My only complaint is that she loses the gears so easily and we are down about 4 from where we started. Anyone know where to buy extras?

My 1-year old enjoys this, but there's really not much to it. You push the button, it plays a tune, then the gears spin. My son can easily pull the gears off and put them back on, and he frequently will hold the center gear so everything stops.

I do wish there was a little more to it, but it is very cute for what you pay for it.

FYI, make sure the switch on the back is set correctly. We didn't realize it was set to DEMO and it barely played any music at all. Now that it is set right it plays a variety of short tunes before & after the gears spin.
