GraviTrax Interactive Track System


The Gravitrax system s a construction set of plastic disks and runs for marbles with a magnetic board. It has more than 100 components, plus six colored magnetic marbles you can use to design different marble runs. The booklet shows how to build it, step by step, or you can create your own design. The design in the booklet is for up to three players, but you can play it by yourself, too.

If you like any kind of building toys or are interested in creating a marble run, this game is for you. The marbles are magnets so it’s challenging in how you build the runs so that the marbles make it to the end of the run.

I recommend this because it is fun and challenging at the same time.
