The daily grind has us sitting in cars, working at desks, and looking at screens all day. Sometimes we need to take a break from all that and stimulate our brains with something more fun. Remember when some of the best toys ran on your imagination, not on batteries? Toys like that are still around today and they are loads of fun to play with, even as an adult.
Clear off a table or stretch out on the floor and check out these awesome marble run track sets. They combine brain-teasing construction skills with fast-paced racing. Planning and building a course is a great activity for kids and grownups of all ages.
Building these tracks takes coordination and patience but comes with the payoff of seeing your marbles zip through the completed track. It also takes an appreciation for trial and error as you try out configurations that might not work.
Race your friends, have family competitions, or test your skills against your own times. Marble run tracks are easier than dominoes, because one little jiggle doesn’t cause the whole structure to fall. Feel the satisfying snap as pieces fit together, like LEGO bricks, and be proud of a successful track coming together. And these sets are more advanced than Mouse Trap, because despite the fun of that game, the track can only be put together in one way. These marble run tracks are only limited by your imagination.
These tracks are attractive works of sculpture, too. Dozens of sturdy plastic pieces in each set are made in rainbow-bright colors. The pieces come in a variety of sizes, obstacles, wheels, and tracks for your marbles to navigate. Each set comes with at least five marbles so there’s no chance you’ll lose them all on the first run.
Put down your screen and pick up something fun for your brain and your hands. Let the good times roll — these marble run sets will satisfy all your cravings for fun.
