More Than Gears is designed to help children build a strong math foundation at an early age.

I am even more proud of the fact that a foreigner like me took this amazing journey to bring children's toy manufacturing back to the USA.

Onion Toys, LLC, founded by a foreign-born entrepreneur with advanced degrees in engineering, has launched a remarkable educational wooden toy, called More Than Gears. More Than Gears is created and manufactured in Springfield, Illinois. It provides a unique approach to help children build a strong math foundation at an early age. Comprised of one internal gear, five external gears, and a wooden dowel, it is precision machined for high quality and beautifully finished with paints made of recycled whey in the US.

"I'm very proud that I created More Than Gears for young children." Yeoun Yoo, the creator of More Than Gears, explained. "And I am even more proud of the fact that a foreigner like me took this amazing journey to bring children's toy manufacturing back to the USA.” he added.

It seems very simple to play More Than Gears. First, pick any external gear. Next, align the two gears at start. Finally, turn the external gear with a dowel in hand. How does this help children develop motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and analytical skills? A complete instructional video and texts can be found here:
