Review:

Who says a giraffe can't become a marble run, or a marble run a moose? The Marble Fun Run Building Blocks Edition set includes 72 chunky interlocking pieces (compatible with Duplo), three large glass marbles, a sheet of googly eye stickers, and a 12-step instruction guide.

Youngest testers used the blocks to build animals (some more recognizable than others) and their older siblings upped their game with marble runs of differing complexity. We had reports of conversations about gravity and conducting experiments to learn how higher slopes effect the speed at which the marble rolls down the design, and figured out that even though two towers might be equally tall, other factors, like how many spin-tunnels and stair-like slopes can influence the speed at which the marble reaches the bottom of the run. Cue the applause sign for fun and learning.
