I was initially concerned about the durability of this product since similar marble runs have been rated as low-quality or wobbly. HOWEVER, my concerns were quickly put to rest when my niece and I began constructing towers on Christmas Eve!

The pieces fit together easily and the bases are fairly sturdy on an even surface (we didn't have much trouble on the somewhat uneven carpet either, however). There are a ton of pieces (moreso than a lot of other marble runs) and there is an interesting variety of spirals, swirls, vortex pieces, spinners and slides.

My niece is 4, and really enjoys putting the marbles in to see where they go (bonus points if they shoot off to nowhere, in her opinion).

This set is designed for older kids if they're going to play on their own. HOWEVER, with adult guidance my 4 year old loves it and does very well with it...and mom and dad approve!

Bonus: This is just as much fun for adults to play with as it is for kids. It's great to have a toy that I don't mind playing with (EVERY time I'll be coming over). I'm seriously considering buying one for myself just to have around. It's great fun!

I got this for my then 6 year-old last Christmas. This set contains the right number of vortexes, spirals, spinners, bridges and tower pieces to be able to make some pretty cool and complex runs without being overwhelming. If your child is on the younger side, and this is their first time with marble runs, they might need a little help. It's not that it's difficult, but when you open the box and just see a bunch of plastic pieces looking at you and an instruction book with no words it can be a little intimidating. Help your child with a simple marble run until they are comfortable and then they'll be off and running.

The plastic pieces fit perfectly together and you don't have problems with a too loose or too tight fit like you might have with a cheaper quality toy. The only 'tricky' pieces are the spirals. You have to use the little yellow guys to support them or they won't work. Also, these are the only pieces that bend, and if you don't have them at the right angle the marble will either not make it around the spiral because it lacks momentum, or it'll fly off because it has too much. This isn't a problem (just needs an adjustment), but an impatient child could get frustrated. Also the bases may not be too steady as your tower gets higher and higher. A flat, non-carpeted surface is recommended, although my son was able to build the basic runs on his carpet. They were a little shaky though.

Especially cool were the pieces like the vortex where you can watch the marbles go round and round until they finally drop into the hole (it's kind of like a toilet). The spinners are not vital to the construction of the run, but they are fun to watch. The spirals add a little bit of a challenge and introduce the concept of momentum.

My 6-year old got this toy for Christmas and loves it! You can build marble runs from the guide, or create your own. It's easy to use, allows kids to build jillions of different runs, and they can really get creative building with this. This is one of his favorite toys!

Verified Purchase
I went against my instincts and ordered this for my 9-year-old daughter's "Santa" present. I should have listened to some of the other reviews and bought something else. Anything else would have been better. She really wanted a fun marble track that would allow her to build in all kinds of configurations. This was flimsy and could barely be assembled at all without falling over. Really poor design and construction. I rarely take the time to review items, although I always read them before I buy, but this was SO BAD I felt I had to write a review. I will say I received great customer service from Amazon and received a full refund of the purchase price and shipping without any hassle. That was the only good part of the experience.

First off, I have nothing against the seller or Amazon. They're probably great.

As for the product itself, I don't know where these good reviews are coming from as they clearly weren't using THIS product. We returned this abomination after a handful of failed attempts to create a structure that would work properly and that was stable enough to last for more than 10 minutes. If you enjoy being frustrated, this is the product for you. If you don't, look elsewhere. (Note: We started with a cheap, hand-me-down marble run we had is FAR superior. I just wish they still made them.)

For those who may doubt the veracity is my review, here are a list of SOME of the problems with this product:

* Despite all of the pieces APPEARING to be the same height, the heights of the columns you build will almost magically be slightly off when you mix different types of pieces together.

* The spiral pieces are flimsy and the marbles often get stuck trying to go down them. (see first bullet)

* The vortexes, a key selling point, are also nearly impossible to get to line up the height appropriately so you're left with a wobbly, unstable structure. I attribute this to the use of soft plastic.

* Most of the ramps, curves and spirals all use a green piece that slips over the end to form a piece of that column. While this provides great flexibility when building structures, it introduces additional instability because the green pieces form a C shape instead of being a complete circle. You will press down lightly on one column to make sure the pieces fit only to collapse the entire structure because it has so many weak points.

To summarize - this is a great idea but an abysmal implementation.
