I bought this after reading the reviews. My grandson, who is six, loves building complex lego sets so I thought I would give this a try for him. He loves it. This is wonderful for teaching children positive self-talk and problem-solving. Even though it might take him a while to solve it, when he does and the marble reaches its target, he is thrilled. Yesterday he thanked me for buying his best Christmas gift.
My students love to solve the puzzles in this logic game. It holds their attention and creates a chance for them to talk together as they think of ways to move the marble through the maze. The pieces are colorful and made to last. Every classroom should have games like this to provide engineering activities for students. I will definitely buy more of these in the future.
I bought this for my 6-year old and he loves it. It has a wide variety of levels making it easy enough for him to play, but tricky enough that he can't blow through it too quickly.Each card shows where the first and last piece of the maze go and shows which other pieces will be used in the puzzle. Because each colored piece can be inserted in more than one way, you really need to think about where the marble will enter and leave that new piece - causing the player to think in a different way and use engineering skills in a super fun way. When the maze is complete and the marble goes through successfully it feels great.This game has wide appeal and I'd highly recommend for all ages.
Purchased for nine year old boy and it was well received. Keeps his attention and the different levels of difficulty make it an enjoyable toy. Younger brother needs a bit of assistance.
We got this for our 7 yr old for Christmas. Honestly, he wasn't thrilled. He said it looked lame. Ha. I decided to open it and try out the first 2 cards with him watching and that was the end of the lame game. He is now on the intermediate level and we work together some, since it's becoming difficult for him. Nothing negative to say. Highly recommended if you have a smart kid that wants a challenging type of brain game! �
