Once you get it built, it is entertaining. The trouble is getting it built. It doesn't come with directions, but it is fairly easy to just make your own race BUT it is fairly flimsy, and I got frustrated helping my children put it together. Also, you need to have some patience because figuring out how to make the bridges and curves all work properly so the marbles have different paths to go down can be very tricky!
I would strongly suggest getting at least the 100 piece set because not only will it give you more to work with, but it will also help to balance the set, because as I stated, this thing can be real flimsy. It fell many times while trying to put it together.
This really isn't a toy for a 2.5-3 yr old, my youngest constantly knocks it over and it falls apart when it topples over. He still loves to play with it, but needs help.
I wasn't bothered by the lack of instructions, however, my wife did not agree at first. Part of the fun is building different runs and figuring out where the marbles will go. It really encourages problem solving, logic, creative thinking and reasoning skills.
I wish we had bought the bigger set as the kids fight over the pieces. It's best for 1 or 2 kids.
This is made of a hard thick rigid plastic. It will break before it bends though we haven't had any break.
I do wish it had better storage - the cardboard box didn't last long and doesn't have a closure.
Overall - one of the best toys we've bought.
The delight in this toy has not lessened - the thrill of the noise and the marbles running brings smiles to him and his younger sister - and his dad!
I am a bit concerned about the longevity of the pieces.The "necks" on the pieces that hold them together may prove to be the weak link. But the hours spent running the marbles will ,hopefully, be many
One issue - the marbles seem to be smaller than some available on the market. We had some marbles that were too large to run the race!

I particularly like the large dish/vortex feature, where the marbles go round for ages, making the run last so much longer, and it's fun to watch a handful all swirling around together. My toddler also uses this to just hoof a load of marbles in all at once, then stands back and clasps her hands in awe as they all clatter down the run together! You can't build directly above the dish end though, so if you use it, it has to be at the top of one leg of your construction, but as there are 6 feet this leaves plenty of choice.
There are no sharp edges; the pieces are beautifully finished, and have a great smooth and sturdy feel to them. I'm sure it will last for many years.
A few words about stability and marble runs, as I have seen reviews even for this toy, saying it is 'unstable' and that they are disappointed with Galt... I think this is unfair. Stability can only exist in the design of the structure you build - so it's up to the builder to make sure the run is stable. I had no problem with this, as I have a good grasp of how to design a stable structure - in short, build using three or more legs, linking them horizontally often. I don't build any section stupidly high. When my 2 year old is a little more capable and wants to build it herself I will teach her this, and I'm sure there won't be any frustration with the kit. She can already help to push pieces together, but designing the route will take a little longer!
It should go without saying, but I wouldn't try to move it around once built, unless it is a simple and compact design that you can lift from the feet. The weight of marbles left in the feet (or of construction pieces) below your lifting point may pull it apart, as this is designed for easy breakup and reconstruction. I have found that if anything gets dislodged by my two year old pulling it about, it is easy to push down on each leg of the run to firm up any loose fittings. They don't spontaneously fall or pop apart (as some cheaper sets have been said to do), and if you are using it properly you will have no problems.
The four examples in the booklet were fairly easy to follow - the larger ones incorporate the idea of building two separate runs within the same structure, thereby making better use of the bits, and keeping the run stable and compact. I think one or two reviewers were thrown by this as they didn't expect it, so couldn't make sense of the route/s. However, doing it this way not only increases the mental challenge for older kids (and grown ups!) but means you can race each other.
You can make multiple marble runs converge, to end up at the same foot if you want, although I haven't seen any kits out there that can send the marbles from one starting point off in different directions - that would require some sort -of marble-operated switch trap, but would by nature have to be quite delicate and risk getting broken or simply blocked if several marbles came through too close together, so I think that's why nobody has made this a feature yet.
I have seen reviewers say they run out of vertical spacers on some kits - this hasn't happened to us yet with the Galt Super. Even if it did, you can use spare crossing sections to join two neighbouring columns together, thereby adding stability whilst also raising each one by a level, much as in the multiple run designs. To be honest, if you're running out of vertical spacers, you're probably trying to build something so ambitious that it won't be stable anyway. Some folks just want to built it as high as possible and then blame the manufacturer when it falls over, lol! Of course, it's completely natural that the first thing kids want to do with a construction toy is build as high as possible, so let them have a go, but I suggest that grown ups should be grown ups and manage their expectations so that the kids learn about stable structures and gain the understanding required to go on and design runs that are also fit for the main purpose: marble racing! Either that or find a way to stabilise it using tethers to a handy coffee table or something - get creative! Want more pieces? Get another / a bigger kit. But get Galt!
It was bought as a Christmas present for my children who are just under 3 and 5.
They absolutely love it! My son spent most of Christmas Day and boxing Day playing with it.
It's made from very sturdy, good quality plastic, the mouldings are of high quality.
Some of the spacers are a little looser than the others, but generally the fit is very good and it's not a problem.
Instructions are just four pictures, there are four run examples in a pamphlet. It's generally easy to assemble, although I did have one or two head scratching moments. That said, it's all part of the fun and as long as you aren't one of the new generation who wants everything done for them, and instant gratification, then you won't be disappointed.
The whole point is to create your own runs anyway, so it's up to your imagination.
In the end I bought the next set up as well so we can make even bigger runs by combining the two.
The instructions were garbage. I had to try and figure out assembly from the box picture.
When I DID get it assembled, a mouse farting 3 streets away would have caused it to fall apart. Very flimsy indeed.
Not impressed one bit. Was so annoyed I sold it 3 days later.
