Physics For Little Minds

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.

Little man got this toy For 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.

This thing is so much more than just a fun building toy though. It is basically physics for little minds. This thing is very challenging. You have to take your time and 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.

Hi! So glad to know you are a reader of mine! How cool! I actually saw these two posts when I went through your blog and thought they were both great!

Would you mind adding a paragraph to the end of this post telling readers where they could find this marble track, with a link if you can. Also if you can link back to the original what, where, why? post that would be wonderful!

Thanks so much for joining and for having a wonderful blog!
