Great choice for my husband's concentration and fine motor skills during his recovery from a stroke.
Fun!

My husband is recovering from a stroke and these grabbed his attention as soon as he found them in his Christmas stocking. He was able to complete them, which was beneficial for his fine motor skills and concentration. I'll be ordering more complex ones next.

The item came swiftly and in good shape. It is a gift, so I can't write about it in particular. The company is reliable.
My 10 year old liked building these but...

He enjoyed assembling these but the pieces snapped apart easily and were a bit hard to fit together. He did manage to get them done and enjoyed it.

Mini Wooden Model Building Kit

UGEARS mini model kits make building a fun and engaging hands-on experience. A tiny model is pieced together from flat, unfinished, laser-cut plywood parts that don’t need tools or glue to be assembled. It only takes a few minutes to create each model. A kit comes with four models that are all geared towards young builders and all have movable parts.

UGEARS

UGEARS founders Denys and Gennady share a fascination with the inner workings of machines and both are enamored with gears and levers. They realized we rarely get to see these parts in action anymore. To remedy that, they created model kits with movable parts that are engaging from start to finish.

The duo and their Kiev, Ukraine-based team want to encourage folks to be more hands-on, so they strive to make the model-building process as fun as playing with the finished product.

What begins as flat pieces of laser-cut plywood transforms into a model motorcycle, train, treasure box and more designs that all have parts that move in some way—like pistons, wheels, and, yes, gears. There are no tools or glue needed here and there are models suited to different ability levels. You can paint or finish your model once it's built.

Denys made models as a child and wanted to recapture the joy of creating with your hands—which he thought, much like with gears, was something many of us have fallen out of touch with. And we can attest, it’s hard to keep your hands off a UGEARS model.
