How do the gears engage babies as they grow?

This toy is meant to be used for babies AND toddlers. We've seen little ones loving it as teethers and older toddlers up to 3 years old loving the puzzle aspect of the toy (putting them apart and together and making them turn like gears).

How do parents feel confident during play time?

Take the guess work out of play time! The included play guide outlines ways to play with the toy and practice different developmental milestones so you can feel confident you are providing the most support for your baby's growth. The guide also has a toddler-friendly explanation of how gears work to inspire curiosity and learning as they grow older.

The toy for the future engineer

Lil' Labmates Interlocking Gears have a STEM theme that exposes babies and toddlers to science imagery early on. The gears are a classic engineering concept that is easy to explain to toddlers.

Babies between 2 and 36 months can enjoy the developmentally enriching benefits of the classic Montessori toy, the interlocking discs, as well as additional benefits such as teething and sensory development due to the STEM design twist.
