Gears! Gears! Gears! Movin' Monkeys is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need more cranks! I received this product as part of an incentivized review program. While the building set is age-rated 4+, young children and those with certain disabilities will need much assistance in getting the pieces to fit together. The directions provided show clear steps to follow, but again, younger children may need adult support. That being said, the pieces are certainly strong and well made. As an elementary special education teacher, I would have preferred that more than one crank piece were included such that kids could create different sections using separate bases, and then each child could have a crank to make the gears move in their separate section.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jungle Creations I received this product as part of an incentivised review program. I am an elementary teacher and an aunt to a 8 and 5 year old. I think this product would be great for imaginative play in school. My 8 year old niece and 5 year old nephew have nearly the whold set of Gear!Gears!Gears! and they really love building with the products. What is great about this one is its ability for students to create an imaginative moving jungle for all of the monkey's to play on. The colors are attractive and there are so many building possibilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kids had a blast! My girls had a blast putting the Gears together and playing with the monkeys. I was busy working and gave them this toy to play with. They were engaged and this gave me time to get work done. They worked together as a team to set everything up and then enjoyed imaginative play with the monkeys. It was nice to have my 7 year old read the instructions and work with her 4 year old sister to put it together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and they are learning! My 5 year old was so excited to open the box and start playing! She didn't want any help in putting it together. It was easy enough for her to play with and snap the pieces on by herself. Her 2 year old sister just loved the monkeys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never heard my daughter giggle so much! I have never heard my daughter giggle so much from a toy. She literally shrieked with excitement when we turned the gears and saw the monkeys moving around the set. The monkeys climb a rope and twirl around trees, which for a preschooler, is loads of fun to watch. My daughter and I worked together to construct the set. While it is much too complicated for a preschooler to put together by themselves, there is great learning value in having the preschooler identify which piece (size, shape, color) goes next in the sequence. There are several individual "sections" of varying complexity. By the third section, my preschooler caught on to the general pattern and scheme of construction and was able to hand me the proper pieces. The pieces were difficult, however, to snap together and the instructions were very small and so it was often hard to discern the placement of the gears. Be prepared for it to take some time to put together as well. The toy would probably be best for an elementary age child if wanting the child to construct on their own. Nonetheless, there is great learning value in this toy even for a preschooler and loads of fun and giggles. Please note that I received this product as part of an incentivized review program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product for home and school I used this product to introduce simple machines in my classroom. It was a fun example and one the students loved to build and change. It also allowed me to talk about another concept - cause and effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endless configurations and fun! One of my daughter's favorite animals is a monkey, so she loved the pictures on the box and immediately wanted to play! While this product is recommended for someone 4 years and up, my daughter is only 2. She does have a difficult time building the configurations independently, but I like that this toy will grow with her. After watching someone build parts of it, she can help a little by putting gears on the board next to each other. She loves playing with this gears set with an older friend or an adult, and her favorite part is turning the gears after it's assembled!! I also love the fact that you can assemble and reassemble this in different configurations. We'll keep this toy for years to come! I received this product in return for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of pieces interacting pieces to keep them busy! I received this product as part of an review program and I am recommending it to everyone. If you have a child that loves to build things, than this product is perfect! My son spent hours constructing, playing, and then building new trees for the monkeys to swing on!
