Gears! Gears! Gears! Movin’ Monkeys Building Set
For ages 4+
There's nothing like monkeying around to get creativity flowing! In this jungle-themed set, monkeys fly through the palm trees by their tails, then spin, twist, and turn. Monkey around and build your very own interactive jungle! Just imagine monkeys swinging from a vine or hanging from a tree! This animated jungle land is just waiting for you to come and explore!
Watch the delight as kids make monkeys dance to the rhythm of spinning gears. This set offers an educational spin to gear play by incorporating patterning, counting, and symmetry. It starts with following step-by-step pictorial instructions to create one design, but then taps into children’s imaginations to create their own jungle landscape. The methodical placement of the gears helps children think logically and strategically and show how, when all the parts fit, a machine works smoothly and problems are solved effectively. Playing with a toy that’s exciting to build and watch is a great way to get boys and girls interested in learning about the mechanisms that machines are made of and opens them up to future engineering possibilities.

Appeals to Boys and Girls
The theme promotes dramatic play and the constructive nature of gears enhances hands-on learning and work together to create awe-inspiring playtime.
A Perfect Way to Introduce STEM Skills to Young Kids
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are introduced as children sort, group, count, design, construct, and put physics into play with spinning gear movement. This jungle themed toy can be the catalyst to a career in one of the STEM fields.
Set of 136 pieces includes 6 monkeys, vine, vine swing, 2 palm trees, leaves, treetops, corkscrew, crank, gears, bases, and connector pieces.
Get your little engineer's creativity flowing and send these monkeys swinging through a jungle of gears. This jungle-themed construction 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.
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 toyespecially for details on how the palm trees fit together. The manufacturers 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 VaamondeSee all Product description

Parts are durable and easy to use. With very little instruction even young children can begin to build.
As for me, a former teacher, I am thrilled with the potential educational lessons that this toy could teach. It's good for colors with young children, for one thing. And then, with direction, a child could really practice the basics of physics, as it shows them the whole concept of a gear, not to mention movement caused when they function together. I don't think, however, this is educational without adult direction of some kind. That is not to say that it can't be fun, as my daughter likes it just for the monkeys alone!
