I bought these gears activity with the same thougt.
The box and pack is pretty adequate. It mainly consists of 4 parts , a gear, a small connector , a large connector and connectors that let you connect the gears on the sides or vertical of the building tower you make. It also comes with 1 small handle which will help you rotate the gears.
The whole concept is your kid connects these gears to work on tandem such that when they rotate that 1 mother gear to which you connect the handle knob all the gears connected to each other mover as well.
My kid who is almost 3 years old loved the concept, he was quick to understand the concept and was already joining all the gears towers ans connectors within minutes. He loves to see all the gears move together after he has fixed a number of them.
Pros: fun activity a big change from building blocks, it helps kids understand the concept of cause and action.
I have a 9 month old and i feel safe around these as the pieces are not literally small for her to swallow or get stuck, ofcouse she is being watched around this but she is fine.good quality looks good.
Cons: once the kid gets a hang of the concept there is nothing much he can do, i mean its not like he can get innovative and create something, the whole concept revolves around joining the gears and rotating them. Once my kid did it a couple of times he was kind of bored and was like all it does is spins. Also there are a ton of gears, like with any other toy because it has so many pieces it makes a mess and clean up takes time.
All in all a good product , nothing extraordinary but good to have change, im sure your kid will love it.
A bad review is like baking the perfect cake with all the best ingredients and having someone sit on it!
So when we got home I ordered a set for my son because of how much fun we had with it.
When it came we did the same thing. We opened the box and began going through all the things that we could make. But, I found one problem. I wish there was more! The set I feel falls a little short. It only has one crank handle. There should be more. Because if we both make two things one person has to crank things by hand while the other gets the handle. I don't mind this for myself, I'll use my hand. But, the thing is.. it limits what you can do. I also wish there were more connector pieces. The pieces that go between the gears. Because it would be nice to build bigger things. You almost need to order a couple sets at once.
However, with the one set that we have, we have created some fun stuff. Getting around the lack of extra handles and lack of connector pieces. We have had a great deal of fun with these. I love watching my son build cars and trucks with wheels and other moving parts. He has a lot of fun with them and I think they are great busy toys especially for boys with those building minds. My son is always building things, and this was perfect for him.
I wish that there had been more than one turner. This limits the toy to one structure at a time. Often our granddaughter wanted to play alongside an adult, but she wanted to make her own creation. Two or more turners would facilitate this.
