The easy-to-follow guide features three different builds from beginner to advanced, which makes the set adaptable for age or skill level. The different build options also foster longevity in play. The set can grow with your kid’s development. Alternatively, kids can get creative when independently creating their cool courses.

When construction is complete, kids can drop the ten marbles into action and watch them race down ramps, swirl through slides, or face funnels of fun. However, adults should know that these are not standard-size marbles and you cannot get replacements, so make sure to properly store the marbles when not in use. (This reviewer suggests an appropriately labeled travel soap container.) In addition, the set comes with batteries, but they are intended for demo purposes only. So adults should insert new two AA and three AAA batteries before for regular use.

What makes VTech’s Marble Rush Ultimate Set unique is that kids can combine it with other Marble Rush sets to create an extreme playset and play possibilities. As kids are playing, they are learning valuable physics and architecture skills. In fact, Marble Rush is the recipient of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) Accreditation Stamp of Approval from the Toy Association!
