Georello KaleidogearsGeorello Kaleidogears

Georello Kaleidogears made by Quercetti - Intelligent Toys; Imported from Italy by International Playthings, ages 3 and up, 52 piece set plus decals, Suggested retail price $25.00 US, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal, Recommended by the National Association for Gifted Children.

Is it a puzzle, art, a toy, learning tool?

Georello Kaleidogears is all of that and fun too. This brightly colored 52 piece set made of a soft, unbreakable, kid safe plastic with rounded edges is a wonderful introduction to the world of gears and mechanics.

You can apply the decals to the gears for more intricate, kaleidoscope-like color effects or leave them off, the choice is yours. Play is open-ended, so kids can build whatever they dream up using interlocking plates and 3 different-size meshing gears. This combination of creativity, inventiveness, and simple gears provide a colorful chain-reaction perfectly suited for the naturally inquisitive mind of a child.

Georello Kaleidogears provide endless opportunities for kids to use their reasoning skills to plan and build exciting, colorful gear art. Piece together the base, then add the interlocking connectors and meshing gears, to create a different one dimensional or 3-D design and watch the colorful and decorative gears move every time!

This toy invites children to play with colors, patterns, and simple mechanics. Kids will focus on the fun, but they'll be building on:

  • creativity

  • patterning

  • cause and effect

  • problem solving

  • spatial reasoning

  • developing fine motor skills

  • color recognition

You may find yourself looking for additional pieces as your child grows because this will surely remain a favorite on the toy shelf, for both of you.
