This is by far our new favorite toy in this house. In case you do not know what this is, let me explain. This is a marble run.
Christmas from us. We loved it and did a lot of research about what to get him.(this year every kid got only 1 new toy from us) Papa and I thought this would be the perfect problem solving skill builder for our sometimes inpatient kids.
build it piece by piece. Then you need to run the marbles and see if your path works just right . You can control not only the path that your marbles travel but also the speed at which it travels. And the best part of all is that you can make more than one track and race at least 4 different marbles against each other. The Marble run came with about 20 marbles and over 100 pieces. At a little over $20 this toy is a keeper. It's fun for the whole family and educational too.
