Parenting Tip:

If your gifted child collects Legos, don't worry too much about keeping all the pieces from different sets separate. Mixing them all up allows children to exercise their creativity, mixing and matching pieces from various sets to create some unique constructions. Some general sets come in a large tub, but even if your child has smaller, separate sets, you can keep them all together in a large tub. Plastic storage bins are perfect for storing Legos pieces.

Although your child should feel free to mix up all the pieces, it's a good idea to keep the instructions for the various sets together in one place. Your child may want to recreate the original items and will need the directions. We kept ours in a folder on a bookshelf.

Kids can never have enough legos! Basic tubs and buckets are great for creative play, but sometimes a kit contains special pieces not found in the basic sets. Once kids have put the kit together, they can take them apart and add the pieces to the basic pieces. It's amazing what they can construct! (Be sure to keep the instructions!)

Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! Movin' Monkeys Building Set, 136 Pieces
from: Learning Resources

Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Get your little engineer's creativity flowing and send these monkeys swinging through a jungle of gears. This jungle-themed construction set features palm-tree tops, gears, crank, connectors, base plates and monkey figurines—136 pieces total. Kids can use the easy-to-follow building instructions or create their own gears jungle.

Amazon.com:
A variation of the award-winning Gears! Gears! Gears! construction set, Movin’ Monkeys adds a jungle theme to the building fun. Kids can follow the instructions and turn this set into the scene pictured on the box or can use their imaginations to create their own jungle setup. Monkeys hang from their hands or tail on the palm trees, vine, or each other and can even move down the length of a spiral building piece when the gears turn. Newcomers to these gear-shaped blocks may need to refer to instructions the first time they play with this toy—especially for details on how the palm trees fit together. The manufacturer’s targeted beginning age is four years old, but we recommend starting at six after observing younger children having difficulty constructing the palm trees and inadvertently knocking them over. The 136 pieces include the building platform, gears, cranks, palm tree components, vines, and monkeys. --Cristina Vaamonde
