My 14 month old grandson loves his elephants and plays simply with them while his sister, 4 1/2, likes to sort and link them. This age span promises lots of use for this simple toy.see moreof the reviewer's review

My 4 1/2 yo grandson loves this gears set. He is now 5 and still loves to take it apart and put it together in different configurations. The only issue I have is that some of the parts (i.e., propeller for example) broke very soon afterwards and I cannot find a replacement for it.
