I got two buckets of Gears, Gears, Gears so that the grandchildren had enough to share among them. It keeps them entertained creating their own inventions.

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:

    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.

                      We bought this set to help with creativity and fine motor skills. The set has been used extensively by my children and their friends. Its a permanent favourite which gets used not just on its own but with all our other toys. The creativity is never ending although there is an activity guide the gears are brilliant for all aged children as they each get something different out of their creations. My daughter loves to see her creations move, my son loves to see how tall he can build something. A fantastic set for groups or promoting imagination. We have created houses, planes, garages, mazes and cars. Once you have finished playing all the gears can be packed away in the robust plastic tub.
