Excellent Product. There are no instructions as many have said, but there are absolutely NO stability issues. It is simply in the design. THe products work perfectly.

What you get in the box:

Lots of pieces to fit together.
Lots of marbles.

THats it.

There are two unique pieces that is different from other GALT marble runs, and that is the "racer" start trap at the top, which allows 4 marbles to be released at the same time, and the "finisher trap" which shows you more easily which marble came first, second third etc. It's not a big deal, but it's a nice addition.

The key thing is you must start building small. If you've not built a house before, you don't want to jump in and try and build it all in one go...you'll just get stuck and it'll collapse. Much as the kids will want to build whats on the box, start small. Very small. And very soon you'll be able to build bigger. The negative reviews i think have come from people simply not putting it together properly, and getting frustrated with it. Four reviews, all saying unstable...thats due to design of the run by the owner, not the product itself.

Grab two "feet" and a connecting piece. Three peices. That's all. Link them up. There ya go. Your first marble run! If you are building it for some younger kids, let them play with it now - its a start, and it will keep them busy while you work on more complext peices! It will be more than stable, as its not very tall, and the feet will be fine.

Now grab a third foot, and another running peice. If you want to build a tower, its best to put the feet in a triangle shape to start with, then later you can build your own wacky designs.

I bought this for my 3 year old. One set. Looked like fun.

Jump forward two months and I've purchased another 2. 3 sets. And my 3 year old is not allowed to go anywhere near daddy's toy. I build the biggest baddest marble runs, taller than me. I race 20 marbles at a time. 30 sometimes. When friends came over they all enjoyed having a race, some enjoyed it. Friends don't come over anymore though, but I don't care, just means more racing for me. I think my wife left; haven't checked.

This is the best hobby a man could have. Cheaper than golf and more fulfilling as well.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I sent for this for my daughter to play with, although if you saw it at my house, you may not believe so. Sure, she enjoys putting marbles down it (she can't build it yet, she's only three) but I could easily waste hours on end playing with the set!

It comes with eighty pieces (admittedly, a lot of these are small leg pieces but you do need these in order to use everything else) and twenty marbles (five each of blue, green, black and white). A word of warning, if your child isn't old enough to pay attention to where they move when they are doing something, these will disappear fast. My daughter is always accidentally kicking them under the sofa and surrounding cabinets.

I have read comments in two negative reviews which I will address here:

No instructions: I'll admit, I was a little surprised to see that the set doesn't come with instructions. Then again, the picture on the front of the box (and the back, too) make it really easy to put together. The only reason i struggled slightly is because while I was trying to build it from the bottom up (the way I would recommend!) my wife was trying to put the top together so we could meet in the middle. You may be able to make this work, we couldn't! However, copying what we could see in the picture really wasn't difficult at all.

Stability issues: I have seen people complaining that as soon as they have built it (or even before) it falls over. While I can see how this would be possible, it really isn't hard to rectify. If you follow the picture on the box, the structure has three main legs. I imagine what a lot of people do at first is set the legs up in a line. Obviously this is going to impact on stability.

Length: 1:32 Mins
Working in a primary school we use these a lot. They encourage learning via questions such as 'where do you think the marble will come out?' learning that gravity pulls things down & not up, and improving fine motor skills as putting the bits together requires a little effort (ok so it's easier for a 38 year old than a 5 year old!) you also get to work on teamwork, sharing, turn taking and tidying up.

Bigger than lego pieces they don't hurt so much if you step on them, but if an adult does so you are likely to crack or break the pieces. The small competitive edge to this particular set is good fun, put four or less marbles in the top & turn to start them all together (sometimes one doesn't drop - a non starter) and the land on a piece with first second, third & forth place stops. You have twiddly bits and a bell and as such this is a good kit. The pieces are a standard size and the various kits fit together - we have some other brands at school that link in but also one set that just doesn't lol. There are no 'instructions' just the pictures on the front of the box which are ok. We had two pieces different to picture on the front but it still fitted and worked the same way.

Having used them at school I got this one for my daughter (5 years and 8 months)and then when she outgrows it I can pass iut on to the school.

I recommend this kit but it looses a star for the little niggles mentioned. Very very good but not quite perfect.
