A fantastic spin on simple mechanics! Most children haven't seen anything like it.

Little children place a picture card on the magnetic board. Every picture card has circle cut outs within the design with colored trim around each circle.

Children find a gear base to match the color trim. They put the base in place. Then children find the gear that matches the base and slide it on top.

When all the gears are in place, children choose a gear to spin. When they spin it, other gears move too! Fun goes round and round!

The 10 picture designs are kid-favored fun. Create moving animals at a circus, a peacock, a clown holding balloons, a bouquet of flowers, a dragon, a juggling clown, a caterpillar and an ant, an alligator, a school of fish and a truck carrying a car.

Little minds are in constant motion playing with Switch & Spin Magnetic Gear Board!

    When product arrived, the magnates had separated from the backing & had to be glued.

    Great Grandma
    Posted 12/27/2013 by Linda Shumate

    We got this for a great granddaughter and a great grandson, both are 3 years old. They loved it. They like doing the different pictures and seemed to be fascinated with how the gears work-turn one and they all turn. I don't think this is something they will get tired of after a few times. The above mentioned great granddaughter has a little sister, 18 months old, and she was fascinated with the puzzle. She was beginning to put the pieces in place, with some help, and turn the gears. The bright colors are appealing to the children as well.

    Product review of Switch & Spin Magnetic Gear Board
    Posted 12/26/2013

    I was afraid this would be too young for my 2.8 year old nephew but he played with it as soon as he opened it and even took it to Grandma's house for Christmas dinner.
