Building marble mazes was one of our fondest memories as a kid. With the tracks and the slides for them to move around on. So we were thrilled to see that National Geographic is keeping that tradition alive and bringing this fun educational game to the market for this generations kids.
National Geographics Marble Run construction kit is designed to fit together snuggly so your marble maze won’t fall apart while you play. With 5 sturdy bases, 15 exciting action pieces, and 45 clear smooth-run track pieces, our kit has countless imaginative configurations. It comes with a mesh bag and marble pouch make it easy to store your marble run construction pieces and glow in the dark marbles in one place.
What we love about this set is there’s no wrong way to play with it. You can use their instructions to build different mazes for the marbles and set them through, get expansion packs to make it even bigger or even design your own mazes to play with. And all the while kids are learning about gravity, how mechanics work and building at the same time. It’s simple way to introduce some more complex physics concepts to kids as they are playing – and they wont even know you’re doing it!
With no batteries required, the National Geographic Marble Run is a fun and affordable game set for kids over the age of 3 and is a game and toy they will play with for years. It seems to age with them as they play and they can adapt the set to their current age and level.
