Great surprise for a curious little one who wants to know how everything works took him a while to figure it out and with a little help he was able to do it but oh well he is only 4 years old!
When my daughter was young she used to love this toy. It was a hit with my 9 year old niece this past Christmas and brought out the creative child in her, my two sister in laws and myself. Great for crafty girls, and they make other sets for boys.
My nearly 5 year old loves the plastic marble run toys, I thought wood would last longer and be more of a challenge. I think both of those assumptions are true, however... The wood pieces shift when the marble passes through and if the holes don't line up EXACTLY right there will be a jam. Also, there are no real instructions and the pieces provided don't seem to match the photos on the tin. Maybe he will warm up to the challenge when he is a bit older.
