I love this toy! That being said, it is a bit complicated to put together if you want to follow the directions. The directions, by the way, are a bit difficult to see at times (colors are a little hard to distinguish). In addition, there were some discrepancies I had to address at the end right before completing the design. I have a five-year-old girl, and I had to set most of it up myself. She will play with parts, but the overall large design was way beyond her. She doesn t care, though, and she has fun with it whether it s in the full form or not.

As for me, a former teacher, I am thrilled with the potential educational lessons that this toy could teach. It s good for colors with young children, for one thing. And then, with direction, a child could really practice the basics of physics, as it shows them the whole concept of a gear, not to mention movement caused when they function together. I don t think, however, this is educational without adult direction of some kind. That is not to say that it can t be fun, as my daughter likes it just for the monkeys alone!

I bought this toy for my 4 1/2 y.o. grandson. It was a bit of a challenge to assemble, but we did it together. He is very interested in how everything works together. The toy is durable and fun and really satisfies his mechanical nature.

We ve never owned "Gears" equipment before but bought this for our 6 year-old who is crazy about assembling blocks. He wasn t super-interested in building the model shown in the instructions, but has been assembling other things. My 8 year-old totally got into the model, though. He didn t need help interpreting the instructions but my 6 year-old did. Product is very durable and user friendly for small hands.
