The Scoop

A unique spin on magnetic toys, Switch & Spin Magnetic Gear Board lets kids build their own toy! Simply choose a picture template from 10 unique designs and place it in the wooden frame. Then add the gears in the color-coded spaces to turn each picture into an amazing kid-powered machine! Or, remove the templates to reveal the white magnetic surface -- perfect for an open-ended exploration of simple mechanics, or a range of counting, adding, and problem-solving activities (instructions included). This sturdy, durable gears toy includes a magnetic board with wooden frame, eight magnetic pegs, eight colorful gears, and five double-sided, color-coded design templates.

Comments about Melissa & Doug Switch & Spin Magnetic Gear Board:

Totally engaging! I had fun playing with this toy. It has a magnetic board, gears and changeable pictures. And if you want to just put the magnet gears on the board without the picture you can do that too. The interchangeable pictures are a brilliant idea because they are key to keeping a child engaged. This is a fun multifaceted toy.

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Switch & Spin Magnetic Gear Board:

    We love that you can re-arrange the spokes with the different pictures. The board is magnetic so it can also be used with other magnets, like letters and animals. My daughter just received this today and has been playing with it for hours!

      This is a great interactive board. It was very easy for my 3 year old son to figure out. A lot of parts and pieces to keep track of, sigh, even for a very organized mom.

        Other than having a lot of pieces this is a great puzzle! There are many different pictures that can be switched out and put the cogs on that all store within the back of the wooden frame. Our 2 year old daughter loves to match the color on the black picture to the magnetic pegs to the corresponding cogs. The icing on the cake is that she gets to see all of the cogs spin at once when she's done!

        • Have kids place all the pegs on the gear board, counting 1-8 as they place them in any order.

        • Have kids point to a peg on the gear board and name the color, then find and place the matching gear. (Repeat for each color.)

        • Have kids name each of the colors from left to right (or clockwise). Remove one of the colors and ask which gear is missing.

        • Have kids turn the gears and determine if any of them cause other gears to move. Help kids move two or three gears closer together so they engage with one another.

        • Challenge kids to move all of the gears into a line, arc or circle so all of them move when just one is turned. Ask kids to remove one gear and see what happens.

        • Help kids make their first initial or favorite number using the gears.

        • Make a picture card: Place a plain piece of paper over the magnetic surface, then ask kids to arrange the pegs and gears on top of it. Remove the gears and trace the pegs to make a template. Remove the paper and let the child decorate it using crayons or colored pencils, adding color coding for the peg outlines.

        • Encourage kids to continue designing "machines" in any shape they chose, mixing and matching the pegs and gears for interesting color combinations, too!
