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.

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.

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.

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

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!
