Two proven kid-pleasers (marbles and blocks) combine to keep active children happily occupied for hours. Build towering structures with the hardwood blocks, then release marbles at the top and watch 'em roll!
Tip: for truly amazing mazes, start with our exclusive spiral end cup and build backwards. The set's 45 interestingly shaped, brightly patterned blocks inspire all kinds of contorted constructions for the set's 10 included marbles to maneuver.
Comments about Product: LOVE this marble run! We had a bad experience with the plastic ones breaking, so this wooden set is super. We do use additional wooden blocks as raisers, etc. to make higher and longer runs. The whole family loves this set! We bought two.

Comments about Product: The fun of this product is in the adjusting little areas of your marble run to make the marble roll better. It's not like the plastic products that you just click together and watch it go. I would imagine my 3 year old would tire of that after about 5 times. With the blocks (which are beautiful by the way) the amount of combinations are endless. When my husband was trying to set up the same run as the picture on the box on Christmas night, I was a little worried that my intelligent 3 year old would never get the hang of this toy. It seemed a little tedious. But he was thrilled to make simple little runs, one ramp stacked on top of a block that ended with the spiral cup, etc. Meanwhile I always play with him and make a more complex run that he loves dropping marbles into (and frequently knocking over.) The quality of this product is superb and a great value for the price. I would never buy a plastic model that you have to snap together and then probably breaks after a time or two of disassembling to store.

Comments about Product: This is a quality set. Sadly, they didn't engineer the angles right. Even as an adult it is very difficult to make it work. The pieces mostly allow for even runs which means gravity won't work. The blocks all add up to the same level. when you make the blocks differnt heights the runs are so steep the marlbes shoot off the pieces. If you have a chop saw and planer like I do this can become a great set. Otherwise be prepared to be frustrated.

Comments about Product: When seeing this, I was reminded of the plastic marble sets I had in school. I loved it!
But knowing my nephew and how much he loves blocks, I found this to be a great gift. It kept him busy, along with my Dad, for hours on Christmas morning!
After playing with a few times, he has already lost a few marbles, but its nice they are easily replaced.

Comments about Product: I am Youth Education Director at our church and have used a similar product for many years. This one is more sophisticated than ever. Everyone loves it. I have teenagers who go back into the primary room after church to play with the marble run, just as they did when they were six. They keep creating new ways to utilize gravity.

Comments about Product: It was brightly painted and looked fun, but that's all that I can say good about it. The blocks were slick and slipped off each other. The grooves were poorly shaped and often did not allow the marble to roll from block to block. I bought the smaller set thinking if my grandson liked it, I'd buy a bigger set next year. It was a waste of my money. My son put the block set in a donation box.

Bright Colors the Best Part
Comments about Product: My youngest son had this on the top of his Christmas list. It is difficult to line up and balance (even for an adult) He looses interest because it doesn't run smoothly and he has to "tweak" it so much. Very disappointed

Comments about Product: Great for my 6 year old, but her 12 year old brother had fun too. My only complaint is that one set alone is not quite enough (esp. for the 12 year old), so we ordered another set!

Comments about Product: We purchased this marble run for our son when he was three. At 5 1/2, he still enjoys playing with it as does our 2 year-old. This is a great toy for the whole family! It helps develop spatial awareness and physics concepts. It can also be used as building blocks too. Great value!
