Customer Reviews of Gears! Gears! Gears! Wacky Wigglers
Excellent for expanding creativity12/5/2008
This has been very interesting to watch my 5 year old grandson play with these. He loves them and always trying to make something different, while at the same time using his imagination and having fun!
My grandson 5 years loved it12/5/2008
This toy allowed a 5 year old to to make many make believe things therefore never boring
My son loves the toy but gets frustrated because not all of the gears (connectors)stay together when you turn the motor on. The vibration and movement shake them off almost immediately even if an adult made sure the connection was good. The toy itself is a great building toy.
Great time-together activity with my 6-year old12/5/2008
I got this as a Christmas gift for my 6-year old as a more age-appropriate alternative to the massive lego sets that he was asking for (big brother is a major legomaniac.) We spent about an hour building one of the creations in the included booklet and it was a lot of fun. We were both able to put pieces together, although some of the gears required a little finessing/jiggling to fit into place. The end product was really cool -- it had a lot of different components flashing and clicking, and with the motorized movement it was quite a spectacle. (One drawback -- if your batteries die, you can't push the wacky wiggler back and forth manually.) The connecting pieces are hard to separate when you are ready to disassemble -- big hands are definitely needed. The pieces are a good size and color that keeps them from getting lost under the fridge and such (does that only happen at our house?)
My 5-yr-old nephew loved it!12/5/2008
I bought this for my 5-yr-old nephew who is a very active child. He never spends more than a half hour on any task, but the first time he played with this toy, he was still busy after 2 hrs!! My younger nephew (almost 3 yrs old) also had a great time playing with the toy. I would highly recommend this!
