Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again and again I have tried this gear set with kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students. Each age group as been able to independently discover how the pieces work together, create all different types of structures with the gears, and work together to problem solve when they need to make adjustments to their creations. There were cheers and smiles all around when I showed each class the set and let them explore. The students are loving this gear set. One of the things I like best about this set is that it provides the students a chance to work together and problem solve to improve their creations. I also love that because there are so many different ways the pieces can work together, the students get the opportunity to practice the skills of creating, celebrating when their creation works, and then take apart what they made to try something new. I do wish that the product came with more building ideas for the students to help push them past basic building structures and challenge them to combine the gears together in new ways. It would be particularly helpful to have images in the directions of possible structures they could create. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from STEAM Building The packaging box was sturdy and attractive. I liked that there was a plastic handle to make the box into a briefcase for storage of the parts. The instructions were easy to read. They included both words and pictures. In my opinion, instructions are not necessary for this product but it is always helpful to have them as a back up. The instructions were more of a guide than a how to. It offered suggestions rather than "must do's". The gears are made out of a durable, smooth plastic. There are no rough or jagged edges to injure children. The gears in the 100-pack are colored in pinks, purples, and teals. I think that these colors appear more feminine and it would be better to have a variety of bold primary and secondary colors, more gender neutral. I wish that there was an option for the same set of gears in various colors. Some of my male students only wanted to use the teal gears because of this. Students did enjoy building with the gears. I did as well. Building with the product offers students the opportunity to lean how a gears work. They are able to explore their creativity in a STEAM centered learning. It is like building with legos that move. I would suggest getting this set in addition to one of the more specialized sets so that there is more variety amongst the pieces. It is great that all Gears!Gears!Gears! products work and fit together. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gears! My 4 year old was thoroughly entertained by the endless possibilities of what she could build with these gears. It also provided a nice opportunity for an adult to play/build with her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great STEM toy for all ages When we first got this toy we figured it would be mostly for my 3 year old; however, when we opened it and first started playing with it my 7 and 10 year old also really got into it, as did I! The instructions are clear, simple to get you started on how the basic gears work. From there, the possibilities are endless for creating different combinations. I love that this toy is not only fun but educational as well. The girls were able to learn about cause and effect as well as how simple machines can work. In addition, they were able to help each other creating different patterns and combinations. It is rare to find a toy or activity that the whole family can enjoy together and an even bigger bonus to have it be educational as well. The only "downside" to the toy was it comes in different colors that were specific to each gender. Although my girls didn't seem to mind, I think just having a one set with bright colors instead of different ones to choose from would be sufficient. That alone would not deter me from recommending it to a friend. I received this product as part of an incentivized review program. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gears for girls!! The reviewer received a free sample of this product. I love that these gears are in girl colors as I want my girls (ages 7 & 9) to be just as interested in STEM activities as my boys! I have mixed feelings about the box these gears are in - I love that it is sturdy and has a convenient handle for carrying but am disappointed that it only opens from the top. This smaller opening makes my girls feel the need to dump all the pieces out to find what they are looking for as opposed to being able to work out of the box like a brief case as in other gear sets. I found the simple step by step instructions with illustrations made it easy for my girls to add gears, the crank and learn to go up and over. My girls are able to build elaborately on their own however when my 4 year old son tries to join in he needs a little bit of assistance. These gears are colorful and sturdy and allow for lots of creativity!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for letting their imagination grow We showed the kids how the gears worked and then let them go. They had so much fun building towers, bridges etc. The only con is the pieces that hold the gears are really hard to take apart once they are connected. It's good because it makes the tower or whatever sturdy but the kids couldn't take it apart without help
