As a kid, I used to take apart everything. I didn’t care about putting it back together, as much as I did about dismantling it. If I were a kid today and had access to an iPad, I would take it apart in a heartbeat. I’m not sure why I was attracted to disassembling everything, maybe just out of simple curiosity or plain boredom. Whatever the reason, most things that I took apart never worked again.
That’s where First Time Gear Clock comes into play. This toy is perfect for children who enjoy fiddling with gadgets and taking them apart. It also provides a highly educational tool to demonstrate mechanics and jump start the next generation of engineers. Learning to take this clock apart and put it back together will teach children about telling time and how a clock works, but will also instill in them a sense of wonder about the inner workings of every day things and will give them confidence to tackle complicated projects.
No batteries are needed since the clock is spring powered and needs to be wound to operate. The clock comes with simple color-coded instructions for what promises to be a less than painful assembly. They’ll sit all day building and breaking down the clock. I doubt if it will ever serve the purpose of telling time. However, should your little engineer require a break, this clock is as attractive as it is practical. It will make a quirky, colorful addition to any room as a tabletop timepiece.
Eventually, your child will begin to take apart everything in the house, but for now you can sit back and relax.
Pro-tip: Take this time to explain to your child the difference between mechanics and electronics. After all, it wasn’t that long ago when humans didn’t possess electricity.
