I like the skills it teaches but I didn't read closely enough they are removable pieces. My 2 yr 10 month old looked at it and walked away. The skills are perhaps early for his age but despite being a puzzle lover, this one didn't pull him in. It is well made and I suspect he will have it for a couple years.
I bought this for my 2 years old grand daughter since she wants to touch & play my IPhone and IPad. She loves this toy. I am very happy I bought it for her. She can learn number and some alphabet too.
My daughter is not quite three. I got her this for Christmas because she likes to build and it seemed like it would be good for fine motor skill development. So far, she has pulled this off the shelf every day. She enjoyed building towers, rearranging the gears, and figuring out why all the gears are not spinning. I have had a great time playing alongside her, making cars, towers, and different building shapes. I would have liked to have been able to have gears spin in different planes, but we are both having a great time with this set.
This learning tool is very appropriate for a wide range of development/ages. I purchased it for a fifteen month old, who will play with this for a long time! As fine motor skills become more developed, she will be able to master more complicated latches.
