Whirling, twirling, musical fun is on the way with this exciting MUSICAL GEAR CENTER set! Your little one can push this button to activate the music and motion that will keep both his eyes and ears engaged. As he drops the ball onto the track, he'll watch with delight as it falls down the tube and then spins at the bottom. He'll love spinning the gears on the side to turn the friendly face around and around--and when he gets older, you can remove the gears so he can stack them and take his fun to "new heights"! The active play, twirling fun and happy music just goes on and on!

The toy is very well built and sturdy.

Like most toys though, it will only entertain her for a certain length of time before she's ready for something else.

THis is a toy that has gears you can turn and balls you can drop through a hole in the top.

At first glance the Playskool Musical Activity Ball and Gear Center looks impressive. It has five gears, music, and balls that drop, but then you realize.. is that it? The gears turn and music plays, but the balls simply roll seemingly without a purpose. You can see it in the video, but the concept is pretty basic you push a button, the gears spins, and music plays. While to me it seems pretty simple, but my 11-month old-daughter enjoys playing with it. While I wouldn't call it her favorite toy she does enjoy it....almost to my amazement.

Other notes

- 2 Double AA batteries required (not included)
- Easy to assemble
- Three main activities - the ball drop, the motorized gears, the manual gears
- Seems to be well built

Final Verdict - My initial thought was that my daughter would lose interest in less than 2 minutes, however I am surprised that she is playing with it a week later.

Overall, this toy is pretty fun for a baby. I've played with my friend's 14 month-old with this toy and it kept her occupied for a good 15 minutes. She had a lot of fun figuring out where to put the balls and got excited anticipating them to pop out; also she had fun taking the gears off and putting them back on and turning them. The balls are large enough that she can't fit them in her mouth and there's a little slot for the balls to stay in when you're not using them (so they don't get lost). It's pretty sturdy as she was being a bit rough with it and didn't fall apart. The music is not totally annoying, so that's a plus too.

Durable and easy to assemble are the highlights of this Playskool toy. Otherwise, it's had it's 5 minutes of fame in our home, and likely will be stashed away while my young sons play with other toys they find more amusing. My boys are 8 months and 2 years old. The 2 year old likes to run around with the balls best, and finds the rest of toy less than engaging. My 8 month old has been amused with the music playing, and may become interested in turning the gears--that is if the toy even still interests him in the near future. The gears turn well and they stack easily, but they don't DO anything. Turning the gears doesn't make the music turn on, or make the balls drop. The balls must be manually dropped down, and all they do is drop. When they drop, they don't cause the music to turn on, either. Only pushing down the red smiley face on the right corner makes the music go. If pushed far enough down, the gears will also turn. If the gears played more of a role in causing the music to play or the balls to roll, I probably would have rated this toy better. As it is, the elements are not related to each other at all.

Overall, save your money for other toys which will likely get better use.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My eighteen-month-old grandson and his dad tried out the 'Playskool Musical Activity Ball and Gear Center.'

My son's report reads: I'd give it 3 stars, I think Benji would give it 4 right now.

I think the detachable gears and the balls are going to get separated from the toy and the big plastic base will be a lot less interesting without them. Also, while the toy is interesting now, it might not hold his attention as he gets bigger, whereas something like a toy truck is interesting now and when he's a little older.

But now, while the parts are relatively together and he's 18 months, he likes playing with it.

I can't speak on behalf of children of other ages, but it's a bit simple for an eighteen-month-old and likely to be left in pieces (after being enjoyed for a while).

Bottom line: Three and a half stars. Not a great buy for the outlay.

This toy survived my five-year-old's abuse, so it's definitely durable. However, he and my toddler both kind of lost interest after a while. Every once in a while my toddler goes over to it and plays for a few minutes. It's neither very engaging nor very educational. If I had to choose again, I'd get something else, like Peek a Blocks or a Busy Ball Popper, or just some wooden blocks. Lots more play value in those.

THis is a toy that has gears you can turn and balls you can drop through a hole in the top. If you put in batteries, it plays a little song.
the gears can be lifted off easily, and gears and balls were separated from the main part of the toy pretty quickly.
It would be an OK toy for a pre-traveler (just sitting up) and for a parent who is willing to put 10 parts back together every day.
There is just not a lot to it that would keep a child interested for a long period of time.

This is major bang for the buck. So many different activities that our daughter loved for about a year. Even now, she's three, she'll have fun with it for a little while if we pull it out. The gears can be stacked, moved around. The balls (and various dolls) slid edown the chute. The gears on the side are fascinating. Learning how to pop the balls out is an activity in and of itself. Finding all the pieces at the end of the day can be annoying but having the game is totally worth the work. The sounds are rather mild, not annoying to me.
