Fun Problem solving for kids

My kids (ages 5-9) love this. It entertained them for a LONG time.


poor construction

agree with last review. The velcro attachments do not hold up. have to continually readjust. Many times the ball causes the attachments to fall off before getting through the run.


Great concept, room for improvement

Great idea, we've found that the hook and loop attachment method does not hold up so well to the weight of the balls. A cool track requires that the attachment points be wiggled after every couple of runs or the track falls apart. Could be a more solid connection.
