    Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Build & Bloom Building Set:

    Great toy and will keep you occupied for hours. The gears do not click into place and will sometimes come out when turning the crank. In the second to last section in our set, the gears do not turn the flower. Still entertaining but my kiddo was disappointed when one part didn't move with the others.

      Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Build & Bloom Building Set:

      Build &bloom is a creative gear experience.
      Both my daughters loved the colours and design of this product. It is very well made, will be able to withstand any child playing with it. There are endless possibilities of what you can create. The interlocking gears really got my kids excited and they kept wanting to explore different designs. My 6 year old even said she prefers this over lego. I would highly reccomend this to anyone who has a son or daughter between the ages 4-10. Another amazing product by learning resources.

        Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Build & Bloom Building Set:

        Your child can plant their own spring flower garden with the 116 pieces: gears, flowers, butterflies, bees, ladybugs, wiggly stems and more. The parts are all interchangeable so it's really up to their imagination on what their final garden will look like. The pieces easily snap together so even though the recommended age is 4+, Mason is able to play alongside Kenzie. When the garden is assembled, turn the gears and the smiles and giggles come out.

        Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Build & Bloom Building Set:

        The Build & Bloom Building Set contains 116 pieces from various colored gears to flowers, stems, butterflies, bees and more. There are base pieces that the gears snap onto and the flower stems then you can move the gears around to watch them all move. My boys had something similar to this when they were younger and loved it, its funny how such a simple toy can encourage so much fun. When my daughter first opened it, she said for an hour and played with it. That was a huge chunk of time for her to play with a toy. Since then this set has become a daily fixture in our family room. After putting it away a few times and my daughter asking for it again I decided to just leave it out!

        Even my 6 year old son started playing with it and building with it. The set really does have a lot of pieces that a few kids could play with it at one and have plenty to do. I love when toys have enough pieces for kids to share otherwise there tends to be fighting with kids with want this piece or that piece. The gears are all super bright and colorful too, it is nearly impossible for a kid to not want to play with them!

        I received this product to review in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

            The Build & Bloom Building Set is super adorable, perfect for the little girl in your home! My daughter loved planting her own little garden & she could even connect the gears with other Learning Resources Gears Sets to make playtime bigger & better!
