They loved it! Even better than legos
I bought this for my 5-year-old nephew, remembering having had a similar set for my daughter that provided many hours of entertainment. My nephew and his 10-year-old brother and 8-year old sister played with this set together. They loved it! Even better than legos.

popular and played with a lot
My 4 year old grandson plays with this set almost daily. He always wants to build another marble tower and usually wants someone to build it with him. So this toy encourages togetherness. One has to be careful about the marbles, which roll all over the place and get lost, of course. But the set is all wood and will last forever. If there is a weakness with this toy, it's that there are not enough pieces to make really elaborate marble runs. I'm considering buying another set so that my grandson can extend his creativity with bigger and taller towers.

Rough wood = splinters
We purchased this product for our son for Christmas and just opened it to play. The pieces are unsanded and very rough. Not only do they not line up for the marbles to roll smoothly, I have a splinter in my finger from helping build the tower. Returning this product as soon as possible. Not safe for me and definitely not safe for my 6 year old.

I bought this item for my boys for Christmas and they absolutely LOVE it. I have a 13 year old and a 7 year old. Normally they do their own thing but with this item, they have worked together to create different scenarios for getting the marbles to the bottom. They even went so far as to grab some dominos that I had to create a chain of events for when the marble gets to the bottom, it rolls into the dominos and they go crashing. Needless to say, this is a great hit for them, and I love that they're getting along so well and using their brains to think of different ways to .... well, make a lot of noise haha.

My family loves it!
We purchased this product for our boys who are 4 and 3 years old and they love it! Their dad and I play with it too. It has endless possibilities of creating and building anything with these blocks. Definitely a strategic toy! The material itself is good quality and comes with decent amount. Although I wish it came with more marbles. It's easy to lose the them considering they are small but we bought a huge bag of marbles to replace them. I recommend this to anyone!

Like the wood but couldn't take the time to figure out a good run. If I don't want to, my 5 year old won't either.

This is a great addition to my son's wooden building blocks
This is a great addition to my son's wooden building blocks. Combining them he can make even bigger and more complex structures. It is also a fun set on its own.

Tough to get started, but lots of fun
As a child, I loved my wooden marble set, and was excited to see this on 2DayDeliver to buy for my nephew. As opposed to all the complicated plastic versions that encourage you to build it only a certain way, and frustrated my nephew when they don't quite fit together, this one inherently works together. It took him a little coaxing to get started (would be helpful if they added better visuals of what you can build to inspire kids) but once he got into it, the creativity and ideas were wonderful.

Cute toy, but I bought this for my 4 year old nephew, and he has a hard time getting it to stay up. It requires a gentle touch in order for it to not fall over.

Basically good, but the marbles don't roll well on all of the pieces. We've been testing each piece we add as we build to avoid a finished run that doesn't work, but I think we'll end up sanding some of the pieces a bit to make them all work.
