We purchased these for our 4-5 yr old church classroom and the kids (and teachers) LOVE them. It encourages creativity and teamwork as the kids build together. It's great for boys and girls both!
Learning Resources sent me over their Primary Science Sensory Tubes to review on my blog and these are so much fun! I know so many teachers are always on the lookout for great science manipulatives because usually that is one of the first subjects that takes a backseat to Reading and Math. Using these, students are able to really use the Scientific Method to check some things out!
We bought this set to help with creativity and fine motor skills. The set has been used extensively by my children and their friends. Its a permanent favourite which gets used not just on its own but with all our other toys. The creativity is never ending although there is an activity guide the gears are brilliant for all aged children as they each get something different out of their creations. My daughter loves to see her creations move, my son loves to see how tall he can build something. A fantastic set for groups or promoting imagination. We have created houses, planes, garages, mazes and cars. Once you have finished playing all the gears can be packed away in the robust plastic tub.
I got two buckets of Gears, Gears, Gears so that the grandchildren had enough to share among them. It keeps them entertained creating their own inventions.
