Product Description

Product Description

This panel is great for homes, doctors' offices, and waiting rooms! The Wall Panel is great for developing visual tracking, fine and gross motor dexterity, eye-hand coordination, and sensorimotor skills.

Amazon.com

This Parents' Choice Classic Award Winner is that colossal maze of wood, beads, and wire often seen at the doctor's office. Beautifully crafted with a 12-by-15-inch solid wood base, thick sturdy wire, and wood beads, this winding wonder keeps little hands and minds busy for hours. The structure consists of five intertwined wires, securely attached at the wood base, adorned with free sliding beads of varied color, shape, size, and pattern. One wire reaches 21 inches at its peak, another makes a complete 360 degree loop. As the child slides beads across the tangle of wires, fine motor coordination and critical thinking skills are developed, as well as an understanding of both spatial relations and depth perception. The Original Rollercoaster washes easily with a damp sponge and squares up neatly in a corner for storage. --Kathryn Gustafson

My daughter first played with the rollercoaster at her pediatrician's office. It is one of the few toys that she never gets tired of. By moving the beads from one end of the colored wires to the other it helps to build the child's hand to eye coordination. It is also a great way for your child to learn different colors, shapes and sizes. As the child gets older it will also be a great toy to teach him/her math and problem solving. The rollercoaster is definitely one of the best developmental toys available today. I highly recommend it.

I purchased one of these toys at a local toy store sometime around 2001. The toy was extremly fun, addictive, educational, and very well put together. Recently, as of 2008, I have purchased another one from the Anatex factory, and to my dismay, the toy was in terrible shape. The wires were bent, and they were popping out of the wooden base right when it came out of the box (unsafe for children). I immediately exchanged it, hoping that I wouldn't recieve another defective one. Guess what? I got another piece of crap with the same problems as the first one. I have also had the opportunity to visit a local toy store that had anatex items in stock, and theirs were all bent out of shape as well. If you have purchased this product before the year 2005, then you most likely recieved an excellent, durable product. If you purchased it after 2005, you probably recieved a piece of crap. The Anatex company must have changed the way they manufacture their items, and it is definitely not a good thing. Here is a warning to all of you who are planning to purchase one of these made recently, because you will probably recieve a toy with many defects that are not safe for children. This goes for all anatex items. If you still want to purchase this particular item, then I would suggest purchasing the Educo Supermaze, which is the same item, but from a different company that still knows how to make toys the right way. Thanks for reading my rant!

This toy is captivating. It keeps my child interested for hours. There are so many different ways to play with the beads and wires. It has been a good way to interact one on one with my child. We both like to play with it. It is also very sturdy; my child has stepped on it, tipped it over, tried bending wires, and it still looks good as new.

I got this for my son when he was only 7 months old.. and even then, he was mesmerized by the colorful pieces (beads)and the way they moved on the wires. He is a year now and still, it is his favorite toy. He will sit and tediously move one piece through the maze of wire and then back again. I believe it has shown him patience and determination.. because he often has to start over to get the pieces where he wants them... This was, by far, the best gift he's even received.

I have eyed this toy in our doctors' office since my baby was 3 months old. I had waited to get this toy for her 1 year birthday, partly because I was concerned it was too advanced, and partly because it is more of an "investment" toy than the typical ... plastic toy. Now, I regret waiting so long to get her this toy. Not only does she LOVE playing with this toy but it is evident that she is learning new concepts every second she plays with it. Our daughter can not stand on her own, but the toy is stable enough for her to stand and lean on it by grasping one wire and playing with the others. Also, it is a good "sitting" toy. I would recommend getting this toy as soon as they can sit by themselves. This is good for independant play, as well as, parent/child interactions. Our daughter has gone from swatting at the beads, to meticulously moving each bead along the wires. She likes the different shapes, and I can't wait to teach her colors and numbers with the beads. It is well worth the money. Not only is it well-built and beautifully crafted, but new skills can be learned with this toy as the child develops throughout the years.

My kids have loved this toy for years. The only defect is that when little kids repeatedly lean on the wires, they become loose at the base and list.Then when moving beads around wires impede the flow of beads across other wires. If there was a way they could fix this feature the toy would be ideal. Despite the dificulty my kids still use it alot.

Verified Purchase
What I received is nothing like the picture. The wires are all bent and the unit as a whole is very poorly constructed. I do not believe that this unit is made in USA as stated on this page. There is no country of origin anywhere on the box or package. It feels like a $20-$30 Chinese toy.
I have attached pictures so you all can see, the crossbars are red (in the picture they are natural wood) and there is no logo of any kind on this product as shown in the picture. There is a cheap dime-size sticker that says Anatex on the inside support.
I very strongly believe that this unit is made in China, I cannot even move one bead from one side to the next without it getting stuck and hitting another piece of wire.

Look at the green wire in my picture and see how bent out of shape it is, and then look at the base of the red one which was installed crooked from the factory!

I see a company called Hape makes an identical looking unit in the "supermaze" and I will try this, obviously this item is going back.
