The Morphun Gearphun system is designed to be strong, durable and flexible in use, and to complement existing Morphun construction sets. Gearphun has been designed to explore the basic physics of movement and rotation, the effects of friction and creating power and how simple machines need and use gears. Each set in our Gearphun Starter range includes side-joining squares and triangles, drive gear wheels, spinning gear wheels, 5 hole bricks, 25 hole bricks, crank handle, 'X', 'T', 'R' joiners, wheels, long and short connecting pieces and end stops. With an array of pieces, creative youngsters are able to make endless 2D and 3D models. Moreover, using the included Guide Book children can work through each level of difficulty, gradually working up to building models that are more complex. Ideal for the classroom or at home, our extensive Gearphun Starter Sets are a great way to encourage children to think more flexibly as they manipulate and explore different objects; and develop creative play, fine motor skills, hand/eye coordination and problem solving. This 400 piece Gearphun Starter Set includes 10 instruction sheets and 2 sets of 16 work cards. Supplied in a clear tray with silver lid, allowing for easy storage once playtime is over.
