    Comments about Learning Resources Tumble Trax™ Magnetic Marble Run:

    We love this marble run!!! My son (4) and daughter (6) enjoy creating different mazes. Sometimes they create 2 marble runs and race. My husband and I enjoy it as much as the kids:) AND it has such a pretty design on each piece. This product is graphically pleasing, thought provoking, results in analysis, and is fun for ALL!!!!

          Our 5-year old loves this toy and plays with it over and over for extended periods of time. It is his favorite toy right now and he's even given to multiple friends for birthday presents. He enjoys building the tracks shown on the cards and also making his own. This toy would delight any marble run fan or young builder. We enjoy playing with this toy as a family.

            Great product. Comes with cards to give you ideas on use and then easy to use your imagination. Was a hit with my 7 year old and my 5 year old is learning to love it. Took it out of town and cousins also loved it. Easy to store.

              What a fun brainstorming product!
              Tumble trax is an awesome marble race activity. It's magnetic so you can set it up on a white board, magnetic wall, fridge etc.
              The box includes the tracx, marbles, and challenge cards. The cards are a great way to introduce kids to different challenges and that in turn helps them use their imagination to try to out do the cards.
              As always with learning resources it's Great quality, looks awesome, very appealing to kids our 4,6, and 13 year old loved this equally.
              i would highly recommend this product!
              Just a quick note for parents ? We set ours up on the fridge and the kids kept themselves busy and quiet while we made dinner... Who knew that was possible?!

                  Comments about Learning Resources Tumble Trax™ Magnetic Marble Run:

                  Tumble Trax encourages critical thinking with a fun and unique marble run. The marble run pieces are magnetic, so you can use them on the refrigerator like we have been or also on a magnetic white board for a wider track - or whatever magnetic object works for your family! There is so much flexibility with it!

                  Once the track is set up, you drop the marble at the highest point and watch it travel down the track. It should eventually reach the piece that holds the marble. What we've discovered, though, is that even if your design looks just like the one on the provided cards, it doesn't always work as it should.

                  This is where critical thinking and problem solving come in - how can they adjust the track to make sure it does end up in the end piece? Was it going too fast or too slow? Do the pieces need to be closer together? They get to think of why it didn't work and adjust the track as they see necessary to get it just right.

                  Disclosure: I received this product complimentary to facilitate an unbiased review.

                  Magnetic Awesomeness

                  By Debra

                  from Mission Viejo Ca

                  Comments about Learning Resources Tumble Trax™ Magnetic Marble Run:

                  We adore marble runs. Its true. Some families have game night ( we have that too) but we also have Marble Run Night. There is just something so exciting about creating a run and having your marble roll through all the tracks to finally get to the base place right where you wanted it to get to. Tumble Trax magnetic Marble Run makes our fridge a marble run too. I really like the pieces that you attach to the fridge to create the run. They are foamy block type pieces with magnets on the back and a clear plastic piece to keep your marble on track..the marble track that is. I crack myself up. Anyway all three of my kids spent over an hour playing with this creating new and inventive tracks as well as trying to recreate the card track ideas. The marble track pieces are very easy for my kids to move around adjust and place in just the right place to creat the perfect flow for their marble. This is by far one of the best toys we have had in a long time. I may be a bit biased though since like I said before we love marble runs!

                  Very open ended. Great for problem solving. I used it for preschool at the end of the year. They loved watching the marble go down over and over again.
