This is a good idea, but they fall apart very easily. I had it as a center choice for K-2nd grade, and about half of the clear plastic fronts have fallen off after just a few days. This is what actually keeps the marble in. It looks like the magnets are stronger than the adhesive. I guess it would work if you supervised carefully to make sure they didn't pull by the plastic...but who can do that?

        Comments about Learning Resources Tumble Trax Magnetic Marble Run:

        I completely understand why this toy is award winning. Everyone who comes into our house wants to play with the Tumble Trax, including the adults. It's an addicting game, and is great to get little ones thinking about physics and angles. I also love that it doesn't take up a lot of space. I put the magnets on our fridge while I'm cooking or doing things in the kitchen and it keeps our daughter entertained the entire time.

          My 3.5 year old was obsessed with the marble run at school but we don't have space for that in our NYC apartment. These TRAX are the perfect toy for us. We popped this onto our refrigerator and he has played with it every single day for the last week that we've had it there. He loves moving the pieces around testing out the different combinations. There are tons of possibilities. It's well made, colorful and super fun. My only recommendation is to also buy a jar of extra marbles because you will lose a bunch under the fridge.

            Bought this to be used at my house by the grandkids. They are enjoying building the ramp and maze ideas that come with the kit. They are also enjoying building their own designs! I love that the kids are off the couch and are putting the electronic devices away for awhile. This allows them to DO and PLAY! I told a friend about Tumble Trax and she immediately ordered 2 kits.

              I put this activity on the side of my filing cabinet. I teach gifted students from K-5. Even the 5th graders love it and try to use as many pieces as possible.

                I highly recommend this as long as you have a metal surface. My first graders use this on a metal teacher's desk and filing cabinet. Kids use critical thinking skills to learn about spatial awareness and other math skills such as velocity and angle. Works as promised.

                  Bought 2 of this item and gave one as a gift to a four year old and the other will go to a five year old. The 4 year old only took a few times showing him how to match it up and he was off and running with changing the pieces and making it all work.

                    We love this marble run!!! My son (4) and daughter (6) enjoy creating different mazes. Sometimes they create 2 marble runs and race. My husband and I enjoy it as much as the kids:) AND it has such a pretty design on each piece. This product is graphically pleasing, thought provoking, results in analysis, and is fun for ALL!!!!

                          Our 5-year old loves this toy and plays with it over and over for extended periods of time. It is his favorite toy right now and he's even given to multiple friends for birthday presents. He enjoys building the tracks shown on the cards and also making his own. This toy would delight any marble run fan or young builder. We enjoy playing with this toy as a family.

                              What a fun brainstorming product!
                              Tumble trax is an awesome marble race activity. It's magnetic so you can set it up on a white board, magnetic wall, fridge etc.
                              The box includes the tracx, marbles, and challenge cards. The cards are a great way to introduce kids to different challenges and that in turn helps them use their imagination to try to out do the cards.
                              As always with learning resources it's Great quality, looks awesome, very appealing to kids our 4,6, and 13 year old loved this equally.
                              i would highly recommend this product!
                              Just a quick note for parents ? We set ours up on the fridge and the kids kept themselves busy and quiet while we made dinner... Who knew that was possible?!

                                  Tumble Trax encourages critical thinking with a fun and unique marble run. The marble run pieces are magnetic, so you can use them on the refrigerator like we have been or also on a magnetic white board for a wider track - or whatever magnetic object works for your family! There is so much flexibility with it!

                                  Once the track is set up, you drop the marble at the highest point and watch it travel down the track. It should eventually reach the piece that holds the marble. What we've discovered, though, is that even if your design looks just like the one on the provided cards, it doesn't always work as it should.

                                  This is where critical thinking and problem solving come in - how can they adjust the track to make sure it does end up in the end piece? Was it going too fast or too slow? Do the pieces need to be closer together? They get to think of why it didn't work and adjust the track as they see necessary to get it just right.

                                  We adore marble runs. Its true. Some families have game night ( we have that too) but we also have Marble Run Night. There is just something so exciting about creating a run and having your marble roll through all the tracks to finally get to the base place right where you wanted it to get to. Tumble Trax magnetic Marble Run makes our fridge a marble run too. I really like the pieces that you attach to the fridge to create the run. They are foamy block type pieces with magnets on the back and a clear plastic piece to keep your marble on track..the marble track that is. I crack myself up. Anyway all three of my kids spent over an hour playing with this creating new and inventive tracks as well as trying to recreate the card track ideas. The marble track pieces are very easy for my kids to move around adjust and place in just the right place to creat the perfect flow for their marble. This is by far one of the best toys we have had in a long time. I may be a bit biased though since like I said before we love marble runs!

                                  Very open ended. Great for problem solving. I used it for preschool at the end of the year. They loved watching the marble go down over and over again.
