      Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Movin’ Monkeys™:

      We got this set in June and and have now played with it many times and created lots of different scenes. It was slightly challenging at first to work out how to make the gears perform different tasks, but we followed the instructions in the book to set it up like the one on the box and started to get the hang of how it works. Now we make our own creations.

      Like all other items we have from Learning Resources the quality of this product is excellent. The colours are great, the ideas and level of creativity it inspires is awesome and it really makes you think. We have had this out on play dates and now three of our friends have bought it for their children too, which gives you some idea that it is loved by parents and children alike.

      Would definitely recommend this. My son is only three and he can build things but requires an adult to play with him and help him sometimes, an older kid would likely be happy playing this alone for hours - if they get the chance... Every adult we know always want to have a go too!

        Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!® Movin’ Monkeys™:

        This great construction building set from Gears! Gears! Gears! is a fun way to learn. The instructions are clear and easily followed to build an entire jungle scene using all the pieces. I found to build the whole set was a bit of a challenge for my 6 yr old that she thoroughly enjoyed although did require some assistance and guidance.
        The pieces slot together firmly so it stays together quite well when built and it all seems durable. It's great that you can build any design that you want, big or small. My daughter enjoyed just building a small tree design with gears that she could turn and just hang 1 or 2 monkeys from.
        When the whole set is put together it really does come to life and is magical seeing all the gears turning together. There is lots going on to look across the scene. My children enjoyed finding different places to hang the monkeys to watch them twist and spin or even hanging a couple together from the same tree - definitely a fun element of this construction set!

            I gave this as a gift to a 5-year-old, and she absolutely loves it! She said that they have Gears! Gears! Gears! sets in her classroom, so she instantly knew how to construct with this set. I have watched her be entertained by all aspects of this set (the building, creativity and playing). Her mother loves that her daughter gets so engrossed with this set that it keeps her engaged for a very long time, and the set is educational without her daughter knowing it!
