Crazy Gears was conceived as a tribute to mathematician and educational technologist, Seymour Papert, in hopes of providing children with the inspiration to discover and understand the physical properties of mechanisms found in their everyday lives. As a young boy, Papert fell in love with gears. Their movement fascinated him in every way and inspired his career. 

Explore a captivating digital playground in this tantalizing puzzle game. Children ages 5-8 manipulate gears, chains, rods, and pulleys, to pull themselves through each level, which teaches them how different mechanisms affect one another when constructing a machine. This DIY experience is perfect for young makers everywhere!

Other Crazy Gears special features include:
• No rules
• No explicit instructions
• Kid Friendly Design
• Powerful Artificial Intelligence
• Seamless Interaction
• Multiple Language Support
• Crash Resistant Design
• Bold, bright colors
• Automatic Memory
• Certified COPPA Compliant by PRIVO

“One of the great things about this app is that it explores STEM subjects in a manner that allows children to build upon and deepen their understanding of how mechanisms work together. They are free test out their theories by manipulating the objects in the game, and will ultimately solve complex brain teasers independently,” comments Nathalie Gauthier of Seven Academy. “Kids who enjoyed playing Busy Shapes will love this app because it maintains the simple, clean, and colorful esthetic of Busy Shapes, while catering to the fact that those kids are now two years older and looking for something different and perhaps a little more complex. The game also has an addictive quality that makes it difficult to put down. We even have some parents playing it!”

The app is available exclusively on the App Store at
