Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! Motorized On the Move

 I was provided the below mentioned products in order to provide a review.
     The best products for learning are the fun ones.  If you little one is having fun then they are more likely to learn more.  So I am always on the look out for fun educational products as many of you know.  When Learning Resources asked me if I'd like to review a couple of their brand new products I of course raised my hand and said YES!  So far everything we have received from them in the past has been fun and educational so I have every reason to believe that the new products would be the same.  And when we received the Gears! Gears! Gears! Motorized On The Move set I was more then happy with the outcome.  Needless to say Jayden loves it and so do I.


     This set is a great companion to any Gears set you already have or a first set.  The gears can be used to make a race car, an airplane, a motorcycle or anything your imagination can bring.  The set includes a tethered motor, hand control with a forward and backward button, end connectors, wheels, propeller, glow in the dark stickers, and more.  Children use problem solving and critical thinking skills as they put together unique vehicles.  This hands on set can encourage some early interest in engineering and technology.  There is no wrong way to build with Gears! Every creation is unique.
 

     When we received this set Jayden wanted to get started right away.  He knew he wanted to make a motorcycle.  He could not even wait for John to get home.  So we opened up the box and I tried to follow the directions for the motorcycle.  I think I did pretty good.  But then Jayden wanted to change it up and make it a little more simple so he took parts off and made it his own style of motorcycle.  He had lots of fun driving it around the house.  He did have to follow right behind it because the cord is attached and it is a little short.  He did have to be a little careful, because when he would go in reverse he would run over the cord and a few times he would get it wrapped around the wheel.  So I guess my only complaint would be the cord.  But that is so minimal compared to all the learning and fun Jayden is having with it.  This set is for 6 years and up, Jayden is 5 years old and just needs a little support.



     Another benefit to this set is the quality time that we as parents can share with Jayden.  I had fun putting together the motorcycle with him and watching as he created his own version.  I can see some great fun with John and Jayden making lots of exciting creations.  Jayden is waiting for John's next day off to build a race car with him.  I also really like that you can add to this set with any other Gears! set and make even more great things.


     Learning Resources is one of my favorite places for fun educational products.

  2. What a fun toy, I know my kids would love it. They are all into construction, and this one certainly has that as a bonus element.
