One of our favorite parts when it comes to homeschool is having an abundance of S.T.E.M toys that we can utilize throughout the day. Open-ended toys are one of my favorites to have for the boys and that’s why the Learning Resources Gears! Robot Factory Building Set made it on the list of our Top February Picks.
The Learning Resources Gears! Robot Factory Building Set is recommended for ages 4+ and it perfect for letting little ones practice engineering skills as they build their very own pretend robot factory. The creation possibilities are endless as they place their robots to spin and bounce around the factory on moving cranes, springs and gears. Also, if you already have a Gears!Gears!Gears! set, this set will combine with it, which makes for hours of fun!
This 80-piece set includes:
• Interlocking bases
The Learning Resources Gears! Robot Factory Building set is great for the visual and tactile learner. While using this, they will develop a number of skills such as: Counting, Sorting, Matching, Patterning, Problem Solving, Cause & Effect, Critical Thinking, Sequential Thought, Spatial Relationships, Creativity, Imagination, Language Development, Fine Motor, Eye-Hand Coordination, Visual Processing, Color Identification.
Overall, the Learning Resources Gears is a favorite in our house. It’s fun when one plays with it, but get both boys together and it’s amazing what they can come up with! They are constantly taking it apart and putting up new creations with each one being better than the last. They are putting their brains together and learning team work, problem solving, and critical thinking, all while letting their imaginations run wild!
