Review:
This heirloom-quality, marble run set offers hours of creative thinking, open-ended play, not to mention some primary lessons in the laws of gravity and physics. This basic set includes 50 marbles, one wooden helix, 4 solid wood tracks, and an assortment of colored blocks, small ramps, and connectors. It won't take long for kids to learn that how they arrange the ramps affects the speed of the marbles and how they position the blocks determines direction. The smooth tracks produce little friction allowing the marbles to race cleanly around the run. The full-color instruction booklet includes photographs of numerous configurations. Please note, however, that many of the variations depicted require Quadrilla expansion sets/add-ons. Our youngest testers were delighted to "read" the instructions and re-create what was pictured. Children were quickly on the fast track creating a variety of original designs accompanied by the distinctive sound the marbles make as they circle around the wooden helix.
