Product Description

Product Description

Monkeys swing through the jungle of gears, spinning, twisting and turning wherever your little builder’s imagination sends them. Jungle-themed building set features palm-tree tops, gears, crank, connectors, base plates and monkey figurines—136 pieces total. Kids can use the easy-to-follow building instructions or create their own gears jungle. Ages 4+.

Amazon.com

A variation of the award-winning Gears! Gears! Gears! construction set, Movin’ Monkeys adds a jungle theme to the building fun. Kids can follow the instructions and turn this set into the scene pictured on the box or can use their imaginations to create their own jungle setup. Monkeys hang from their hands or tail on the palm trees, vine, or each other and can even move down the length of a spiral building piece when the gears turn. Newcomers to these gear-shaped blocks may need to refer to instructions the first time they play with this toy—especially for details on how the palm trees fit together. The manufacturer’s targeted beginning age is four years old, but we recommend starting at six after observing younger children having difficulty constructing the palm trees and inadvertently knocking them over. The 136 pieces include the building platform, gears, cranks, palm tree components, vines, and monkeys. --Cristina Vaamonde

Verified Purchase
I bought this toy for my 5 year old boy. He loves the basic gears set and loves to build things with it so I thought this would be great. I thought he would enjoy making the set larger and having the gears move something. Other reviews for it were good. However, when he opened it on Christmas morning it wasn't something he could just put together and make work himself. His dad had to sit down and help him put it together because there's only one way to make it all work right so you have to follow directions. It's not great for just being creative with like the basic set. So after you spend all that time setting it up, you crank the handle a few times and watch the monkeys go around and that's it. The kids lose interest pretty fast and then you either have to find a place to leave it out, or just put it away. It's not really something they can just get out and be creative with and then put away. I wish I would have spent my money on another basic set.

My son got this for Christmas last year (he was 2 1/2) and to this day (almost a year later), he STILL plays with it! It is one of his favorite toys. He plays with it almost daily. We are purchasing him expansion sets this Christmas! And even after almost a year of playing with the pieces, we still have every single piece! This is the best gift, very fun and if you have a child like mine with a big imagination, your child will have literally hours of fun with it. If I could rate it 10 stars, I would!

This toy is wonderful to play. My 4 yr old son got this for Christmas and has had a blast playing it. He loves things you can put together and take apart. Mommy, daddy and 6 yr old sister love this too!

When I was teaching elementary school science, I often pulled out sets of gears for my students to play with, because they are great for developing good science/math/engineering concepts, whether following diagrams or trying out their own designs.

We got this toy for my son for xmas, a month before his 3rd birthday. He's definitely ahead for his age with puzzles/ spatial challenges, and has loved this toy. At first, he wanted to build what the box showed, which involved following diagrams (definitely a mom/dad task) but now (a year later) he likes to play with it more open-endedly, hooking things together in his own way to make the monkeys move about. When we first got it, it looked like putting the parts together and taking them apart would be too hard for a 3 year old, but he can do it fine now as an older 3. My only complaint is that the box is not a great storage case.

We bought this toy for our almost 4 yr old son for christmas this yr. He absolutely loves it and when asked which toy was his favorite christmas gift he said it was this set! He spends hours playing with it, my husband also enjoys playing with this set too, lol! In addition, I had also gotten an extra set of just a regular set of gear, gears, gears so my son could expand his set, which was a smart move. I fit both sets into a 27 qt sterilite container that I got at target, and it is the perfect size. Also, my 2.5 yr old loves this set too, although he isn't quite able to really build much on his own, but he does enjoy playing this toy with his older brother. The only thing about this set that surprised me is when the kids spin the gears the noise can be really LOUD! I guess I did not expect it, but basically it sounds like someone shaking a big box of legos with all their might in a plastic box when the kids turn the gears. Otherwise, the toy is great, totally worth the $. I forsee us expanding with more sets as the kids want to build even bigger sets.

We love GEARS, but I'm not crazy about this set. The monkey idea is cute, but for the most part they can't hang on and they don't really spin and turn like you think they're going to. There is one gear that doesn't match up, so it's basically non-functional. But we do love GEARS and would buy more of them.

This set is so much fun! My four year old son enjoys putting the gears together. He loves the monkeys and vines that are included. He can play for hours. I enjoy playing with the movin' monkey set with him, too.

As a grandma of 6 under 5 yr olds, I'm always looking for toys that keep them occupied and happy. Building sets have always been my favorites (Lincoln Logs, Tinker Toys, K'nex, etc). This looked different, but fun, so I tried it. Boy, am I glad I did! They love it! We did have to put together the whole big picture once, but after that they keep coming up with new ways to put it together to make the gears turn on the pads and in the trees. Although I can't speak about the longevity of the monkey gears since we haven't had it even a month yet, I can say that it is a favorite with me and with the grandchildren.
