Granddaughter loved putting it together and then playing it
My grandson and I had a lot of fun putting this kit together and playing with it afterwards. It's so easy to change the parts around to explore how to make different paths for the marbles. He said it reminded him of playing miniature golf and trying to get the ball to bounce off a wall or an obstacle, which led to an excellent discussion regarding math and physics.
