GraviTrax Deluxe Set
Our price: $64.99
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.

My 10 and almost 8 year old love this! We're so happy with the purchase. They very quickly (and mostly independently) mastered the suggested designs, and moved on to inventing their own courses. They had previously loved the classic marble tower toy, and this one just takes that a few steps farther. A great, creative, open ended and educational toy that lets them explore all kinds of physics concepts without even realizing it!
My boys love this marble run and my 9 and 7 year old have spent a good amount of time creating runs and figuring out the right heights and angles to get the marbles to run properly. I will say, it is plastic and while it seems pretty durable some of the zip line pieces were broke pretty quick due to a careless foot or bottom. Overall we are really happy with it and will probably add in some extension kits for Christmas.
The moment this game, my son (10 yrs old) got to work. He has loved every moment of play. The instructions were simple and kid friendly in the sense that he could do most of it by himself.
