Parts all have been durable and are well engineered. Much better than the "tube" based Mable runs.
He's asking for more tracks for his birthday.
I am posting a video I made of one of the first tracks we made. We used two of these sets and parts from their glow in the dark set (not all of the pieces, but most of them).
note: the plastic bases are not heavy enough to hold the coaster in place. Be prepared to use something (books, bits of wood, stationary children) to hold them in place. It creates stability and improves speed. Also, be sure to use the included foam track eraser to remove static electricity from the rails after using for awhile. We couldn't figure out why the ball was slowing down and no longer making it up a hill until we guess what the little eraser thing was for and rubber it up and down the track. All of a sudden we were back in business.
This is a great toy for me...I mean my girls. It's already providing hours of fun for us!
I really like the way this track is designed, especially the curves. The marbles stay put and don't fly off (unless you have really old ones with cracks, like we do). The marbles that come with this set are plastic - yuck. We just used our regular marbles that he already had, which was why I bought this in the first place. I am thinking of getting another one, just for more pieces.
The thing I love about this is that there's not just one way to set it up. You can experiment and try different layouts. Amidst the fun I overheard conversations between dad and kids about friction, speed, and force. My 9 year old and I raced the two different sized balls it comes with then also tried and compared various sized glass marbles we already had. It was quick to set up and change up, and has already held up very well to quite a bit of rough play. My 3 and 5 year olds are not yet ready to build with this, but they love running the marbles through. This track is great for kids maybe 8 and up to build themselves, but younger kids will need help.
If you have a kid that loves legos or other building toys, this is an excellent set. We're already wanting to buy another set just to make longer runs!
- Relatively easy to snap together
- A neat concept
- As several other reviewers have noted, the instruction manual is for multiple models, and what's worse, it combines the skimpy coverage for this model with another model, doesn't really offer any detailed examples to build for this set. While you can free-form build runs, I strongly think that you need a couple of examples for your child to follow for their first efforts so that they can become comfortable with the toy. I went to Quercetti's web site hoping to find more examples, but all I found was a picture of a run, which I printed off and built.
- It's not very stable, and will collapse easily.
- It's difficult to do very much without the marble jumping off of the track. Part of the fun, I suppose, is experimenting to find just the right angles and speeds for the marbles, but the track doesn't offer very fine control adjustments
- The small, black connectors are hard to get apart, and the track connectors are somewhat flimsy.
Overall, this is a good idea, but it falls short in reality. The manual is poor, the toy isn't as user friendly as it could be, and for my boy, it's more frustrating than fun. Two stars.
