Quercetti Kaleido Gears

(Quercetti $30.99)

 

Talk about action, this marvelous 55 piece set of gears includes six giant gears with kaleidoscopic action! Our three-year old tester did this with his mom and aunt, who probably enjoyed it as much as he did. The kit comes with 16 base pieces that fit together like a jig saw puzzle in many different conformations. It also has a crank handle that can be used to set the gears in motion. However, they found the gears go faster when moved by hand. This takes some learning time up front for kids who are new to gears. But the payoffs are rewarding and it’s one of those STEM toys that is open ended allowing players to make different “machines” each time they play. This is a great invitation to explore cause and effect or physics for beginners. Try building a chain reaction that puts every single one of the pieces in action! Yes, you can! A good toy for parent and preschoolers or solo problem solving and creative thinking early school years. 3-7
