Everyone in our family loves this Marble Run + Art Easel running from age 3 to age 40. We've created competitions with the Marble Run seeing who can create the fastest and slowest paths, we pictionary, hangman and much more!
Gave my 2.5 yo this for Christmas and he is super into it… as am I. The bags don’t stay on to catch the marbles but it was easy to modify a cardboard box to store everything and keep them from shooting under the couch. Would buy again for sure overall.
I bought this for my daughter's second birthday and she's been playing with it all day so far. It's adjustable and sturdy.
