Disclosure: I received product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
We’ve had a robot craze over here in the City Girls and Country Pearls household. Robots are a blast to design and memorize! For our last robot toy, we’ll be telling y’all all about the Gears! Gears! Gears! Robot Factory Building Set from Learning Resources.
The Gears! Gears! Gears! Robot Factory Building Set is “geared” (see what I did there?) for ages 3 and up. It’s the perfect STEM-related toy for my 7 year old daughter, Bella. She enjoys designing, building and creating, so I knew this product would be right up her alley!
This building set comes with 80 pieces, including interlocking bases, gears, connectors, handles, robots, cranes and stickers. Once Bella saw the multitude of pieces that she could use to build her own robot factory, she couldn’t wait to dive into her newest project.
But first – she had to use one of the gears as a fidget spinner. Of course. 😛
If you’re looking to improve your child’s eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills while also encouraging an admiration for the STEM subjects, then Gears! Gears! Gears! Robot Building Set is one of the best options. Bella is a tiny bit behind with her motor skills, and this toy is certainly helping her strengthen those hand muscles.
She loved putting the gears on the interlocking bases one by one and watching how if she spun one, the others spun as well. I preferred to keep this toy as open-ended and child-led as possible. I wanted to see what she created with the gears and connectors, and how she used her noggin to problem solve whenever she encountered an issue.
Another part that she enjoyed was putting the stickers on all of the robots, making them come to life with their friendly faces.
She was able to play with the Robot Factory Building Set for well over an hour before she wanted to go outside and swim in our pool. It provided so much entertainment and education, and I’m glad to see her pull the box out on a regular basis to rebuild and recreate a new factory!
