Great purchase!

Just gave these to our twin 2-year-old granddaughters. I did a lot of research, and chose these baskets of play food - I'm so glad I did. They are quality! Heavy duty and very realistic. The girls also love to use the three baskets - so versatile.

Great motor skills toy
October 23, 2017
We love our gears!!! Great tool for motor skills. Really makes them problem solve and use critical thinking. It is extremely durable and sometime a little tricky for their little hands to take apart but I would rather have that then it not be sturdy and fall apart. I think it's amazing the different ways I can build to make it a spinning tower or just a flat board of spinning gears. You can also challenge them by telling them only certain colors can go horizontal or vertical so they can problem solve their way through it or just let them have fun of their own.

encourages creativity and teamwork
April 10, 2017
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!

GEARS! Fun! and I'magination!
January 31, 2017
I played with my step grandchildren (4.5 years) and she was not able to do it at first. Then after we build one, she got lots of fun building more on her own. It was FUN to see her use her IMAGINATION to build her own ideas. You can use it indoors or outdoors.

Fun learning tool
January 30, 2017
These are so fun and great for learning and creativity. My daughter loves to build things with her gears. We value education in our household, so any toy that stimulates the mind and makes our daughter think is great. This one is up there with one of the best!

Fascinating Toy for Preschoolers
January 30, 2017
We received this as a gift and I think I love it as much as my son. I wasn't sure at first what to think of it but as soon as we set some up and starting turning the crank, we were both hooked. It is mesmerizing to watch and create. We are excited to build on with other kits, too! But, clicking the base pieces together is a little bit challenging and holding the base still while turning the crank can be tough. It's hard to not touch gears while holding the base steady, so you can end up stopping the whole thing from working. I'm sure as kids are older, they can solve the problem. But my 3.5 year old has me hold it down while he cranks the handle at full speed to his total delight.

Bought at a garage sale
August 14, 2016
I had a gears toy in a previous classroom and was excited to find this set at a garage sale and bring it into my new classroom. When I took the pieces out to test them I was so disappointed to find how difficult they were to put together. The old set I had was very easy to put together but I think it was from a different company. So it's not a total loss, I may put together the green base pieces and put them out with the gears only.

Good Product, Too Difficult to Assemble
July 26, 2016
I practiced building with this set before introducing it to my students for the school year. The base pieces especially were difficult, some of them I couldn't even make fit unless I forced them! Taking the pieces apart was difficult, too.

Reminds me of my childhood
December 25, 2015
I received this as a gift to use in my church nursery education program. I played with a toy similar to this when I was 4 and I'm thrilled that my Sunday school kids will have this experience. My mom, who got it for me, thinks asked for it for myself, which is partly true. I love it and I know the kids will too.

Grandson loves it!
May 16, 2015
Grand kid loved it. Took to it right away. He loves gears. The only complaint I have is there were not enough of the six way axles to build the zig zag stairs pictured on the box. Other than that it is great!

My kids love using these dishes to cook in their play kitchen! It keeps them busy for hours! If I'm cooking in the kitchen, I tell them to go cook in their kitchen, and they do!

Tough to put together
January 6, 2015
I gave this to my 4.5-yr-old son for Christmas. I needed to help him put the green base pieces together (and I had trouble with it - even needed to use pliers for one section because it wouldn't pop together!) He immediately filled the first layer with gears, put the crank on and enjoyed spinning all of the pieces together. He didn't want me to build up - I think he liked just the pure flat layer of gears. But after we put it away, he hasn't wanted to play with it since. I think I'll let it sit for a while and will then try to reintroduce it and see if he has renewed interest, but it currently doesn't hold his attention for long. Other kids will likely react differently. I like the idea of this toy - hoping my son starts to like it more later!

Great product!!!

The product was much more durable than others I've seen on the market. My 3 year old grandson was able to assemble it easily except for the base. The only thing I would suggest changing is adding additional handles/cranks.

Great food set for school or at home!
May 28, 2014
This is a great set for any school or home setting. We have had the set at home there are plenty of pieces for everyone to play with and set up for meals. With the play food we have everything we need for the children to create great interesting meal combinations. A hard wearing set which is great value.

Great product!

I have an 8 year old with special needs and she is just now at the stage where she wants to pretend to cook and do the dishes and other home things that she sees her mommy do at home. She plays with this set for hours and bakes and cooks and does the dishes and makes tea in her teapot. The dishes are all very true to real ones and it comes with so many pieces. I love the product, my daughter loves the product and I highly recommend it.

Smaller than I thought
September 11, 2012
This is a really nice set, but not what I expected. I ask grandma to buy it for my girls because I already have several of the Learning Resources play food sets and they are wonderful. I wanted flatware for my girls to "eat" the food off of and cookware for them to "cook" the food in. So I was very disappointed to open the box and see how small the plates, pots and bowls were. I live in china and I try to avoid buying toys over here my kids might chew on, so we're stuck with plates smaller than our eggs and sandwiches. Read the specs, it's only the dishpan that is a good size-the rest is small.

my son had a blast with this toy although the instructions were very confusing and hard to follow. pieces were not easy to put together for him and i had to help quite a bit. taking them apart was even harder. i had to ask my husband for some strength. all in all good product but a bit frustrating at times

Most Pieces Okay for Younger Children
January 10, 2009
Santa brought this for my daughter (12 mos). Now she's like a mini Rachel Ray!She's very young, so I removed the 10-20 pieces with small parts. The set is large. There are still a lot of pieces left to play with, which I'm careful she doesn't ever chew.She likes to sit at her table & pretend with the dishes. We sit on the floor & have great mommy-daughter "moments" stirring in the bowls & pots & talking about what we're cooking. She loves it, & I know she's building vocab & listening skills.I'm glad this set doesn't look feminine. If my next child's a boy, or if my daughter wants to play house with her male cousins, no problem.If Santa brings a kitchen next year, she can use these very sturdy plastic dishes with it for years!One negative--no real storage bin. The box serves as temporary storage. Buy a plastic bin, or get used to little dishes & cutlery all over your house!

My four-year-old grandson LOVED this set
October 24, 2006
My four-year-old grandson LOVED this set but was sometimes frustrated that some of the parts were hard to put together and take apart. And it wasn't just him I had to ask a strong man for help in taking a few of them apart. Younger kids should have a great time playing with it if an adult or older child is on hand to help.
