This game is quite fun. My son is a little younger (just turned 4) so I had to help him set-up the game board, but he still thoroughly enjoyed the game and we've played it several times. He has also played it with his older cousins and it works well for several kids to do together.
Pros: Lots of different configurations are available so we can play again and again. Race track options. Educational. Well made pieces and high quality game board.
Cons: The price seems a little high to me, but it is well made.
We really enjoy this game. It is fun to create different tracks and see where the balls will go and how they will impact each other. My five-year-old really enjoys it. The quality of the pieces is great and the started kit allows to make so many different tracks. It's a really great kit to get kids creativity and ingenuity going. They don't even realize they are learning they are having such fun.
Graxvitrax is a must-have for any home. It's great for people who like to build and tinker. The possibilities are endless. The opportunities to be creative and think outside of the box are immense. I love that it is gender-neutral and a toy that can be used again and again with different outcomes. This is a great way for kids to work with STEM components and thought-processes. Gravitrax is a great hands-on activity and a family favorite in our household. I would highly recommend this product for all households. It's perfect for all ages.
