Gears! Gears! Gears! Old McGear's Farm & Giveaway

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.
My son has always had a love of building things with blocks, gears, and pretty much anything he can find around the house! I always try to have several types of building materials out for him to play with and imagine with and then I like to switch different ones in every two weeks or so so he doesn't get bored.

He was so excited when I brought out the Gears! Gears! Gears!® Old McGear's Farm™ from Learning Resources for him to play with. He already owns and loves his other set of Gears but he really loves that he can build a farm with these gears and watch his animals, crops and farmers spin with with twist and turn!

Gears! Gears! Gears!® Old McGear's Farm challenges problem-solving skills as children imagine and create new structures. It features color-coded instructions for children who prefer more guidance and it develops fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination through building and imaginative play!

My four year old son was able to follow the color coded directions (which I was so happy to see!) and build it by himself and he was so proud to set it up and make it all work together! The only downfall that this set has is that the cardboard barn is a little flimsy and doesn't like to stay together by itself. My son had many frustrating moments trying to get it to stay up. We ended up just taping it together.

This set includes 85 durable plastic pieces (dog, cow, pig, horse, sheep, rooster, Ma and Pa Farmer, corn stalks and more) and 4 sturdy cardboard barn pieces. The farm measures 16"L x 15"W x 9"H when assembled and it is best for ages 4-8.

I also love that this set can also work with our other set of Gears and we can build endless creations!
