disappointed by broken piece

As this was a Christmas gift for my grandson, a little disappointed to find one of the bases that the gears attach to broken when he opened it. Otherwise, an excellent product.

    Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Super Set:

    My daughter is not quite three. I got her this for Christmas because she likes to build and it seemed like it would be good for fine motor skill development.
    So far, she has pulled this off the shelf every day. She enjoyed building towers, rearranging the gears, and figuring out why all the gears are not spinning.
    I have had a great time playing alongside her, making cars, towers, and different building shapes.
    I would have liked to have been able to have gears spin in different planes, but we are both having a great time with this set.

      Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Super Set:

      Love the Gears, bought for my grandkids and they have all had a great time playing. Even the adults join in the fun. Three kids have played at one time with the biggest argument being not enough cranks and base. That said everyone still loves them.

        Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Super Set:

        This was advertised as large enough to entertain more than one child, so we ordered 3 sets for 3 families.
        We couldn't find them in any local stores. But there is only one crank per set and everyone wants a crank!!
        Can you Please offer individual cranks for sale if you can't put more than one in the large set.

                  This is a Christmas present for a 6 year old and I am sure he will have fun with it. However I was disappointed on looking at the parts list that it only has one crank to turn your creation

                    Great product. Bought a set for my students to use during their free choice time. I discovered that one set was not enough, so I bought the super set. It's a good value because you get a lot of pieces, enough for a few kids to share and not have to fight over pieces. I love to observe the creativity that is fostered when the kids assemble working machines. There is no wrong way to play. There is a great sense of accomplishment when my students build and create.
