The toy is a set of interlocking squares of various colors that are perforated to hold a four-pronged hub that can support one of four sizes of gears. Everything is made of a durable plastic that has some flex to it. You can create systems of gears that spin around and even construct things like gearboxes. (The cover of the box--shown above--will give you a simple idea of what can be done.) There is a manual aimed at parents that helps them teach their child how gears work, too--a nice touch.
The quality of the toy is high: the colorful stickers for the gears are plastic coated, the injection-molded pieces are free from excess plastic, and the pieces fit together solidly. It's everything you would want from a European-made toy. (Quercetti, the manufacturer, is based in Italy and the toy is actually made there.)
It's a mesmerizing little toy and its variability is virtually endless. There are other kits in the Gear line that include such things as universal joints and 3-D parts, so it is highly expandable, even as your child ages.
My quibble? Our three year old niece adores the toy, but our three year old son only plays with it in fits. Truth be told, I play with it more than my son does. So as with anything, your mileage may vary.
It's nice that toys like this one are still being made. There's a lot of learning that can occur with it, too. Factor in the expandability and how can you go wrong?
Now if only I could get my son to join me more while I'm playing with it!
When I read the description of 55 pieces I thought foolishly I was going to get 55 gears. Instead, I got 55 total parts, to include the base parts, circles which connect the gears, and the gears. That worked out to 17 gears total. The gears are large, medium and small. They are colorful and easy to interlink. At first I was disappointed that I didn't get more gears in this set but after awhile of seeing how durable they were and how much my son played with them I was appeased.
I also got the bucket of Gears, Gears, Gears from another company and while those gears are a bit more plentiful and versatile, these gears are a must have set since they are larger, easier to handle and more colorful. Enjoy!
My main issue is that the white pegs that hold the gears to the blocks bend and break easily. Georello sends many extras with the pack, so it's not too much of an issue yet. I would say a definite yes for kids around the ages of 5-6, especially builders!
