The Tumble Trax Magnetic Marble Run is useful learning tool for at home or in the classroom. I enjoy having my kids play with this set because I know that they are practicing their engineering and problem solving skills in a fun hands-on way. The brightly colored set offers enough pieces to get really creative. My kids think it’s really cool seeing that when adjusting the parts in certain ways they control not only the direction in which the marbles fall but also the speed the marble goes when reaching the intended destination!
The set is easy to keep up with. You can either leave it on any magnet surface or store it back into the compact box it comes in. The magnetic hold on each of the pieces is strong. It’s not going to just fall off if it’s bumped. This is something I really appreciate and I am sure my kids do too. The marbles are large enough in size that if they hit the floor in the kitchen they don’t get misplaced under the fridge or my stove!
The activity cards that come in the set have been fun challenges! Once the challenges were completed my kids just love creating all their own fun marble run designs. The combination they come up with are quite impressive! This set has provided much interaction and fun for my kids. I recommend it if looking for outside of the box ideas to challenge a child in more than one way.
