Product Description

Super Marble Run Vortex by Quercetti is for serious marble-run builders: 220 components let you build grand and complex structures. This set includes all the wide variety of pieces available in Quercetti marble run systems. The double-entry funnels and spirals in Super Marble Run Vortex are original and innovative components, exclusive to Quercetti marble runs, that increase greatly the play value and spectacularity of the tracks. Double-length bridges make the tracks longer, and bell-shaped bases make the structures steadier. Multiple marble launchers, paddle-wheels, short bridges and rails are also part of the set, for an important and breathtaking present. Kids love running marbles through their own creations, again and again. Super Marble Run Vortex will provide years of marble-running fun.

I bought this marble track for my 4 yr old son whose favorite activity at school is marble tracks. I wanted to make sure he had lots of pieces to build many different configurations. I also wanted him to be able to put the pieces together without help. He has no problem with this set. The age on the box suggests much older, but I'm not sure why... The only problem we've had is that we purchased a separate bag of marbles to accompany the set, and they're too big to fit through some of the pieces in the tracks. The marbles that come with the set are smaller. It may be difficult to find replacements that fit when we've "lost all our marbles." ;)

I did a lot of searching for a marble run for my 6 year old nephew. This one had the coolest accessories and decent ratings. I got a more basic set for my 3-year old daughter ("original classic marble run 68 piece set"-this set appears to be generic, I found it on [@]). The generic basic one is MUCH easier to assemble. The pieces on this set are flimsier. The biggest downfall of this set is that the accessory pieces (twirly things, ramps, etc.) don't just click onto the stacking pieces. There is a third joiner (coupling) piece that you must insert over the two pieces that you are trying to join (it is transparent, you may be able to see it in the photos). This makes it VERY tricky to assemble. I would strongly recommend that you purchase a set that does not require these couplers, but rather allows the pieces to be directly joined. Also, like the other reviews pointed out, the base pieces of this set are very lightweight. As you try to attach the coupler things, the bases flip up causing the pieces to detach. Very frustrating. I was frustrated, along with both my 10-year old and 8-year old nephews. We played with it for 30 minutes before they were fed up. On the other hand, we played with my 3-year old's classic set for hours. I will return this one for the classic set.

Comments about International Playthings 1001868 Super Marble Run Vortis:

The pieces do not stack very well for a toy that was designed to be a stacking toy. It's frustrating for my daughter to play with. The price for this is too high. I wouldn't mind spending the same amount for it if it was more stable.

      Two adults sat down to put this together and it was way too difficult and was hard to keep standing up. Plan to return to store.

          We love it. It is mesmerizing. I would rate this 5 stars if it had come with instructions. We had to look at the picture on box and figure it out. After a few runs, we have to make minor adjustments to the run with the spirals to keep the marbles flowing. Everyone who comes over has to play with it.

              This product is great for the imagination. not only are there many ways to build the marble run but we set it on tables and run it to the floor. The pieces snap together and stay pretty well.
