Recommendation: meh 4.71 / 5 from 7 reviews

This set helped to transform my 5-year old son's collection of classic lego from an occasional plaything to the toy he plays with every day. The gears are simple enough that he can put them together himself and he enjoys making new moving creations. We have added four technic wheels and a couple of axels from 'pick a brick' so that he can more easily make vehicles where something turns when they are pushed along.

Recommendation: meh 4.7 / 5 from 89 reviews

Probably the best Lego set we've ever purchased. Includes directions to make 5 little moving things and you can get 5 more on the lego website. Very versatile set. Really makes you think about how things need to go together to make them have moving parts.
