I've got 6 sets right now (This one, Velocity, Galaxy, Raceway, Extreme 2.0, and Mega), and every once in a while I build them. This begun it all. I got this for Christmas as a gift. Too bad it was difficult to assemble, so I didn't get the hang of it, and stooped at, like, step 6, forgot about it and left it. One they, though, when I got bored, I remembered of it, and decided to try it again. It took a day to assemble. The problems, were that one of the pieces (#28, The Bottom Power Lifter Connector as I refer to it) was missing from the box, and there were color errors. I assembled it, like 4 times once in a while, and I finally completed it one day. And I play with it like heck! AWESOME TOY!! And one day, I demanded my parents more. I have about 6 sets now, and soon I'll have 7, and I made a creative version of all of them at least once, some into just a normal marble maze, but better and bigger. BUY IT!!! This toy is must have, and anyone who says this sucks is just being silly. All it takes is time, patience, and sorting, to make sure you have every piece. Just look around the page and look at the full book to complete it, and you'll fall in love with it, and the next thing you know, you'll wanna get another Marble Mania set. AWESOME!! Must have! Buy it now! It's fun!! :D

This is an EXTREMELY poor design. Once put together the pieces do not line up to work properly (several tracks are off by a fraction but it's enough to prevent the marble from moving down the track or connecting to the next track). I am extremely upset about this product especially since it cost [$]!!!I expected a MUCH better product for that kind of money.

    Comments about The Learning Journey Techno Gears Marble Mania Genius (Dual Power Lifters):

    I have two boys, now 9 & 6, I bought for my son's 8th birthday, and he couldn't wait to build it with my husband. As you can imagine, my then 5 year old wanted to help too, and to my surprise, Toby, my oldest, was more than happy to include him! It took them a few hours to put it all together, but it was so adorable to watch "the men" build it in the garage. Now that its up and running the both of them spend hours playing with it, it's been such a huge hit, my husband is asking if we can buy another set for Christmas! Boys & their toys!! :)

      Comments about The Learning Journey Techno Gears Marble Mania Genius (Dual Power Lifters):

      I bought this for a Christmas gift and ran out of time to put it together. The reviews I read concerned me and I didn't want to get in volved. HOWEVER, I put this together yesterday as my nephews birthday is next month and wanted to have time in case I ran into problems or lost pieces! Well, let me tell you ...I LOVE IT! NO PROBLEMS, all pieces included. It took me 3 hours working steady! I can't wait to give it to them....hopefully I won't wear it out before then! I didn't have any trouble with marbles running off and played with it for an hour. The sound piece that makes various noises when marbles go through is an awesome addition....gotta run to go play !

        This toy works great. We are very pleased with the Marble Mania set. It took me and my two boys a while to put together (4-5 hours), but the boys wanted to help quite a bit. Once together, the kids have been having a blast with it. The directions were very well done, and easy to follow.

          My daughter just got this for Hannukah from her grandparents and loves it. The building kept her busy and sometimes Dad had to jump in and help, but she proudly put it together and plays with it all the time. It gets two thumbs up from me!

            We got this a couple days ago and it is so much fun and neat! It helped my kids learn problem solving skills and helped them learn how to correct their mistakes. It took a little while to put it together, but in the end it was totally worth it! They love it and play with it everyday!

              I bought this to have fun with my 3 yo. I admit, it took about 4 hours to put together, but that's the fun part! My kid loves it, and told me he loves me for buying it for him!!! It is not a one trick pony as the manufacturer's web site offers other configurations. Flimsy? Not if you put it together right! I only gave it 4 stars as it is quite pricey but it is a LOT of fun.

              This was bought for my 7 year old son for Christmas, put it together and realized there was a part missing, emailed the company and got the missing part put it together again. The instructions aren't made very clear and the marbles don't stay on track, my son doesn't mind picking them up and seems to enjoy it but as a parent and purchaser it seems like an awful lot of money for something that isn't designed very well, I wish i had read the reviews before i purchased this.
