Highly recommend this toy to any preschool age children! My son loves it!
on August 23, 2015
My son has the original set, so I decided to get him this one in addition. This is a nice sized set and does all the features of the original, plus has the monkey elements, trees, and several other unique features. I did put it together (only 1 x) according to instructions and it was pretty impressive, one single movement makes the entire jungle move. However, my son quickly took it apart and we now pretty much use it like the original. He creases cars and towers using connector pieces and loves placing the wheels not eh board (he is 3). I also like that the set can be used with the other Gears sets. So while some of the comments mentioned that is difficult to put together using the instructions, I have to say I disagree. Yes a 3 year old may not do it himself, but this set still allows for creativity and using it in other ways than just according to the instructional model.
