Marble Run Vortis

Ages: 4-10

The magic of gravity and colored plastic are put to good use with this elaborate multifaceted marble run. Though kids will no doubt love playing with it, the real learning comes from putting it together and making it work. It's a great way for kids to learn engineering fundamentals around cause-and-effect relationships and interconnections.

Be forewarned, though. For parents hoping for some leisure time, this toy may not satisfy, since you'll likely have to help put it together, depending on your child's age and determination.

Bottom line: The perfect family project that makes a big impression on little minds.
