This toy isn't a great one for young children, but the marbles take them out of the picture most of the time anyway.
I love that my boys can set up different runs and race each other, or work together to build a larger run.
The sound of the marbles clip clopping through the blocks is also pleasing, and not grating like the noise of the plastic marble run we've also seen.

This is a wonderful product, and lots of fun to play. The one issue is that it requires an adult to set it up. Once set up, a young child can enjoy it, but it was frustrating for set up and the photo on the package was the only guide. Also once set up, it cannot be moved, so you really need sufficient space to leave it set up for awhile.
Excellent value! Loads of fun!

This is a well made, classic toy at an excellent price. Our son loves setting up the runs and timing marbles from his collection. The wood is sturdy and smooth. Perfect gift for boys and girls who love to build!
