Techno Gears Vortex Marble Mania #marblemania

I made the mistake of telling Eli about this review when I applied for it.  He bugged me and bugged me and bugged me about it.  

To say he was excited to have the Techno Gears Vortex Marble Mania set finally arrive is a colossal understatement.

He couldn't wait to get into it and get it all set up.

Around here, things often become a group activity.  Jack soon came to see what was going on.

Hey, look at the cool sign!  The boys think the Vortex Techno Gears Marble Mania 2.0 is one of the coolest reviews we've done.

Look, Mom, it's a snorkel!

With over 300 pieces, building the set kept the boys occupied for a while.

I love seeing them work together.

Lots and lots of pieces!

Slowly but surely...

it turned into...

something recognizable.

Finally, it was time to add the 3 AA batteries and turn it on.

Whoosh!  Zoom!  Marbles zipping around and down.

While the set only comes with 10 marbles, Eli added some of our other marbles.

Although designed for kids age 8+, all the kids, from the teenagers down to the little guys were fascinated with this super cool glow in the dark track.

In addition to this set, there are several other very cool sets from Techno Gears Marble Mania.

Hours of summer fun to be had with these sets that teach cause and effect and physical science properties, and are just plain fun, too!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. My kids absolutely love playing with marbles and ramps. Watching the marbles go down the ramps is mesmerizing!

    1. I love how the simplest things can provide hours of entertainment with kids. :) Domino runs, too. Eli set up elaborate ones and knocked them down recently.

    1. I'm glad the kids enjoyed it as much as they thought they would. We've had toys flop before (I'm sure every family has!) and it's sad.
