Our Overall Thoughts:
Tumble Trax is a great way to get the critical thinking skills rolling. You can create your own marble run with long, short, and even curved magnetic pieces-then, drop the marble from the highest point to see your design come to life. While this sounds easy, the angles and spacing of your pieces will determine if it trax works. If the ball falls off, then you have to take a step back and figure what went wrong. Need more of a challenge? No worries at all. This set includes 10 building designs activity cards. There are endless combinations with this set.
This set originally was meant for my six-year old, but my nine-year old has this out daily creating crazy designs, racing marbles and so much more!
We love this product so much, it made it into our monthly homeschool favorites.
