This is a really nice set, but not what I expected. I ask grandma to buy it for my girls because I already have several of the Learning Resources play food sets and they are wonderful. I wanted flatware for my girls to "eat" the food off of and cookware for them to "cook" the food in. So I was very disappointed to open the box and see how small the plates, pots and bowls were. I live in china and I try to avoid buying toys over here my kids might chew on, so we're stuck with plates smaller than our eggs and sandwiches. Read the specs, it's only the dishpan that is a good size-the rest is small.

      I played with my step grandchildren (4.5 years) and she was not able to do it at first. Then after we build one, she got lots of fun building more on her own. It was FUN to see her use her IMAGINATION to build her own ideas. You can use it indoors or outdoors.

          Comments about Gears!Gears!Gears! Beginner's Building Set - 96 per set:

          We received this as a gift and I think I love it as much as my son. I wasn't sure at first what to think of it but as soon as we set some up and starting turning the crank, we were both hooked. It is mesmerizing to watch and create. We are excited to build on with other kits, too! But, clicking the base pieces together is a little bit challenging and holding the base still while turning the crank can be tough. It's hard to not touch gears while holding the base steady, so you can end up stopping the whole thing from working. I'm sure as kids are older, they can solve the problem. But my 3.5 year old has me hold it down while he cranks the handle at full speed to his total delight.

            My daughter is not quite three. I got her this for Christmas because she likes to build and it seemed like it would be good for fine motor skill development.
            So far, she has pulled this off the shelf every day. She enjoyed building towers, rearranging the gears, and figuring out why all the gears are not spinning.
            I have had a great time playing alongside her, making cars, towers, and different building shapes.
            I would have liked to have been able to have gears spin in different planes, but we are both having a great time with this set.

              Cartridge Comparison Guide
              • Cartridge Types
              • Ink & Toner Basics
              • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
              Cartridge Type
              Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
              Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
              Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
              Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
              What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
              Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
              Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
              Material Liquid ink Dry powder
              How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
              Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
              Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
              Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
              Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
