A gear is a kind of machine used to help make things move. Did you know we use gears every day? Clocks, bicycles, cars and trucks, all those are powered with the help of gears! Gizmo is a very helpful Hedgecog who wants to help you learn all about gears. His body is covered with 11 colorful, interchangeable gears you can place, spin, and rearrange however you like. When you connect a big gear to a small one, which spins faster? Which way do they spin? What about when three move together?
