Lend a hand your little engineer develop creativity and imagination by building with this Wacky Factory Set. This 128-piece construction set features easy-to-assemble interlocking gears, bases and connectors that are compatible with all other Gears!Gears!Gears! sets.
Children create an intricate maze of colorful interlocking and spinning gears that turns out taking a look like the magical machinery in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. The building process is easy and certainly a big a part of the creative pleasure children will find in this toy. The idea is to stack and interconnect gears, the usage of pillars, axles, and adapter pegs. The written instructions will be challenging for lots of children under 9 years old, but once adults show children how to get began, kids shouldn’t have any problem taking off with their own factory plans. Gears come in an abundance of sizes and bright colors (in conjunction with psychedelic decals). The instruction sheet suggests three experiments for exploring how gears spin, how to gauge spinning speed, and how to have in mind gear ratios. –Gail Hudson
