My students loved this! It does take some time to put together, but once it's together all of my students loved turning the gears and using the astronauts and rocket ship to travel through space.

Gears, Gears, Gears! Space Explorer Set was very collaborative and educational for my students. Just adding the element of space allowed them to be more creative and think about how space works which enriched their designs. They all collaborated and problem solved while they were working with these gears. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My son loved the gears because they 'stuck together"

My son enjoyed the gears because they stuck together unlike blocks. When he finishes building and wants to play with what he's built everything doesn't fall apart if he knocks into it. Blocks can cause frustration when they tip over and he must start over again. He says they're definitely better than blocks!

My students absolutely love playing with this toy! It's vibrant colors, visuals, and design are very pleasing to the eye! The instructions were easy to understand with the pieces right in front of you. During free play the children got explore this product and had a blast! There were plenty of pieces to help with sharing. They loved making towers and loved making the gears turn. They learned what combinations worked and ones that didn't. It helped them sort, match, problem solve and think while using the product. It was fun to work them use their imaginations while playing with this toy. It could keep them entertained for hour! I highly recommend this toy!
