My family loves this product. The full color picture instruction manual is easy to follow. Do not overthink and just follow the pictures and you will be fine. My husband, 15 year old, 6 year old son and I put this together as a family project. It is a great product and I would highly recommend. There also is a website devoted to just the Marble Mania products with alternate builds for each set. As a mom, I love products that challenge childrens imaginations.

Wow. I expected a toy to build and rebuild in different ways (for the young "engineer" in the family). However you can only build it once and there was no way my child (who loves building things) could even help in this process. The directions were SO detailed and SO difficult that we made a few mistakes in connecting some of the snap on pieces and the connector prongs broke when we had to try and disconnect them again. My son ended up finding something else to do while my husband (the engineer)worked on it for over 5 hours and it has now been sitting unfinished about 1/2 done for the last week. A teenager at the youngest would be able to assemble this

    Comments about The Learning Journey Techno Gears Marble Mania Mega:

    I noticed that many of the negative reviewers complain of how long/complicated it is to put this toy together. If your primary goal is a marble run that is quick to assemble and dissassemble, find something else. But if half (or more!) of the fun for your child is the actually assembly process, this is your toy. My 8 year old daughter put it together a bit at a time with my supervision. She was fascinated by examining how it was coming together, how the gears worked, how the marble moved around, how to adjust it this way or that when it didn't work quite properly. As she got more familiar with it, she started to really understand both the mechanics and the physics at play, and was excited to report back about her discoveries. The fact that it ends up being a marble run is a nice add on, but the real fun for her was the building process itself.

    For those reviewers who are concerned that it can only be put together one way, you need to visit the website for alternate ideas, or let your budding construction engineer put her (his) imagination to work. It can definitely be put together multiple ways. My daughter has now moved on to creating her own structures, seeing what works and what doesn't. They are simpler and use only about 1/3 of the total pieces, but she loves it.

    Conclusion - if you want a marble run, buy something else: if you want a building toy, buy this.

    One con - it could be smidge sturdier....

        Comments about The Learning Journey Techno Gears Marble Mania Mega:

        I know that it said there were 300 pieces but I thought that meant you could move each piece around and create new slides for the marbles. There is only one, very complicated way to put this together. My 9 year old took one look at it and said,"mom I just wanted a slide I can put together fast and change around."

              My entire family loves this toy! We built it together as a family, and even my 14 year old enjoyed it! My 7 year old loved it so much that after a few days of just playing with it after we finshed it, he tore it down and started building his own "Marble Mania MEGA". This is soo much fun for the entire family and I think we might just have to go get another one!

                  The Mega was the hit of my nephew's birthday! He loved putting it together - he spent all day methoducally building it step by step. The instructions were simple enough for an 8 year old to follow. He was so proud of himself when he finished. He even ordered extra pieces so he could enlarge it! [...]He and his friends love watching the marbles wind their way through the maze - keeps them occupied for long periods of time. A definite must have for the holiday season!

                      Took forever to put together. There are tons of pieces with only one configuration. So once you got it built all you could do was drop marbles in. You could not design your own marble run. The instructions were so long that my son got bored and hubby and I ended up completing 2/3 of it.
