GraviTrax Starter Set
With GraviTrax your child can design and build hi-tech marble runs while using gravity, magnetism, kinetic energy, momentum, velocity, and problem-solving to propel marbles to the finish. With this open-ended construction set your child will have access to two manuals. In the first, he will be asked to build a marble run precisely as pictured. In the second, he will be told the exact pieces and a few placements, but he will need to complete the design. Both booklets are color-coded, so your child can pick his preferred level of difficulty.
With over 100 pieces and 18 different construction elements, your child will learn how physics impact the track of his marble and how experimenting with height, curves, freefall, and even a magnetic cannon can be used to control the speed of the marble. Everything a STEM building set should be, GraviTrax combines physics, architecture, and engineering and will sharpen your child’s spatial reasoning, logical planning, and architectural design skills.

”We’ve just gone from toy to science lab kit….and my son doesn’t even know it. Ding, ding, ding! AND, when he takes the building guide and goes off to play on his own, you may just hear him rehearing the lessons concepts you discussed with the kit.”Read the Review

”The neatest thing about GraviTrax is how incredibly versatile it is. This isn’t a static marble run with a predetermined route, it’s a hands-on construction set.”Read the Review
Gravitrax is a fun useful for STEM - a challenging marble maze for ages 8+ and anyone who likes stem or engineering type of activities in a game form. Always a little different and never boring. Our 9 year old has used it two years in a row and will likely use for fun next year too. Made well and at a fair price, our family recommends it.
I’m impressed with the quality of this, after having bought a few other similar items that were less expensive, but we ended up tossing because the material was too flimsy for actual functionality. This set really works, our boys love building with this. Will likely order another set soon so they can expand their structures even more!
My daughter is enthralled with this set! I purchased it half price at the damaged sale and was so excited to get it. Thank you, Timberdoodle!! My daughter is 5 1/2, but completely fascinated with the different track designs and how the marbles run. She constantly calls my husband to see our latest creation. He likes to say that I'm reliving my childhood, and maybe I am. So fun! I'm sure she'll be playing with this for years to come!
My 7 and 12 year olds love this toy! We have the add on kit too. It keeps them busy for hours!
I got this as a substitution in my 2nd graders custom kit. My 7th grader plays it just as much! This is something they can play with together! Win- win!
