I bought this to replace a much loved very durable and stable Galt marble run used by my older children when young. My youngest son (6) wanted a bigger marble run and liked one he had used at school which was wooden (quadrilla - i think). However it was priced at around £80 - outside my budget. So I went for this having read good things about quercetti and being attracted by its colour scheme and size. I had never actually seen one in real life though. My son was really excited opening the large box - he is a very good little engineer (builds Lego technic from plans without help and K'nex advanced sets etc. However, he found this tricky going - the plastic is quite flexible and he pushed it together a bit hard - which caused the structure to fall apart. My husband helped him in the end and got quite frustrated himself. When we constructed the elevator we just couldn't get the pick up hooks to lift the marbles and had to put them on by hand - although it did deposit them to fall down the run at the top. My son was disappointed and has only played with it twice since buying it almost a year ago. He had a friend around who touched it a bit roughly and it fell apart. Overall, not a good investment for us - I think a cheaper wooden one (or the smaller set of quadrilla) would have been better or just more boxes of our old Galt set.

My little boy was and is thrilled with this toy and Marble Runs are clearly his thing. However, the pieces can be a bit tricky to push together and I have had to remove it from the playroom altogether when a friend was round as my son realises you have to be quite careful with it but it nearly got trashed a few times by his friend who couldn't seem to understand you can't lean on it even a little bit while playing. I chose this one because it was so much more colourful than the wooden options but I think they would have been a lot more stable. Still a fun toy but a bit flimsy and impossible to a young child to put together on their own - I felt I needed another arm to support it while I put the rest together, so help will be needed from an adult for younger children.

Bought for younger son, older son had problems putting it together, things kept popping off really flimsy and too much to it and tricky and annoying my son said, didn't work as well as it should either, you had to be very precise with the structure. Perhaps better as executive toy.

Bought as a Christmas present for a 4 year boy. Not the easiest to put together, as the elevator part comes in lots of little pieces that needs assembling. The instructions are not the clearest, just a completed picture that you guess that you are using the right pieces. Once finally put together you have your fingers crossed it does not fall apart as it is quite flimsy. That said however once my little boy started playing with it he has had hours of fun.

I've looked at these toys for ages and eventually decided to buy one to try out with some of the special needs children we work with. Building it took me longer that it should have and I suspect lots of mums and dads will need to get involved - leaving it to the kids is probably not going to be the best approach.

I wanted the marble run with the motorised elevator so I could test out an adapter box I've built to allow kids who use big button switches to operate it. It works well and we've decided to add it to our catalogue of special needs toys.
