As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 4 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism
"No real suggestions, except to say that this marble run has helped to make my autistic son feel more confident when playing with other children. While he is very low on the autism spectrum, he still has difficulty socializing with average kids his age (9-years-old). The marble run makes it easy for him to invite other kids to play with him, and they all can play together to build more extreme versions and make the ball run differently. It also helps him to play by himself using his imagination. "

I brought the Marble Run into my childcare for 4 children ages 3-5 years old. Before I knew it, they had built their own runs and continued playing for one hour. I had to end the session as we were going to have lunch.
The kids love it.
I was concerned that it would be cheesy and flimsy but no. It is well made and, obviously, will bring many more hours of play!
I took an adult to put the run together properly. Unfortunately, the short pieces come apart too easily when the run is bumped by a child. We plan to try a few variations, choose the best set up and then glue the run together, on a board, for stability. Box is not good enough quality to store small pieces, so I sewed a zippered bag to keep the 100 pieces in.
Review of Super Fun Marble Run
Posted 1/1/2013 by Kristy Campbell
I purchased this item for my four-year-old son as a gift. He played with it more than the other toys that he received. The toy is very open-ended and encourages critical thinking skills. The only negative is that many of the pieces are top heavy and the pieces that you use as feet are not big enough to hold the structure up. Therefore, the structure often falls apart during the building process. It took the two of us holding it together until all the pieces were added to be successful. Even with those issues, the toy is so intriguing that we still really like it!

While I love the service we got from Fat Brain Toys, this toy is such a disappointment. The idea of the marble going down the run is great, and we have played (me and the kids) in the past with one of these that looks just like it and had a fabulous time. However, this version of the super fun marble run will not hold together--meaning the parts will not stay together long enough to let us build a run. When the kids couldn't figure out how to build without it falling apart or collapsing, I spent about 40 minutes building what I thought would be a LOT of fun. I was SO frustrated at pieces falling off, springing apart as soon as they were set on the table, and not functioning that we piled it back in the box and never touched it again. I guess we should try to return it, but that is a lot of work. Very disappointing product.
