    I received this to review and I absolutely 100% love it! My kids do it! Definitely the best Gears! product we've used. There are so many bells & whistles with this set it's great! Everything easily stores in the nice plastic bucket with a handle. It comes with glow-in-the-dark stickers that work great, slinky springs, flashing lights, a remote control, and other fun pieces. I've had kids ages 4-10 work with this set and they all love it.

    Very disappointed

    The linking pieces were brittle and all of them cracked when we fitted the pieces together!!! We did not get to build even one item. My 6 year old was soooo disappointed. He was content to play with just a few pieces and the remote. But I was not happy spending over $50 for something that broke and could not even be used for one full contraption. I was hoping for many hours of creative play, not 30 minutes of destruction. When I tried to call the company I only got an answering machine that told me to return the product to the store where I made the purchase. I wonder if the store had it on inventory so long that the plastic pieces had dry rotted? Or were the pieces poorly engineered and did not quite fit together? or was the plastic material very inferior quality?

    My son received this as a birthday present. He was so excited and was highly disappointed once we opened it to find that no motor was included. Either one is not sold with it or this was just missing it.

      Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Motorized Spin & Glow Building Set:

      My 4 and 5 year old boys love this and free play with it. We upgraded after they enjoyed the basic building set. I only wish Learning Resources had some type of creative play booklet/PDF with instructions to build fun contraptions like the ones on the front of the tub.

        Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Motorized Spin & Glow Building Set:

        my boys (3 and 5 years) have loved this toy for the past 2 years, and use it for many other creative things besides what it's intended for! They build vehicles, contraptions, and even "weapons" out of the gears and platforms. They absolutely love the set.
        Unfortunately the motor recently burned out on the remote controls, and replacing the batteries is not working. It looks like there is no way to replace it on the website. :(

        Our kids are 10, 8, 3 and 7 months. All 3 big kids loved playing with it! The 3 year old was able to connect the pieces. Our girls were challenged by trying to create working gears and then actually turning them on with the motor. And you may even find your husband joining in on the fun.
