The Ravensburger Gravitrax Starter Set Marble Run & STEM Toy Games sets out to make education fun, and it’s one of the best toys games for the job. With an interactive track system, one with interchangeable pieces, you and your children can create elaborate marble runs while stealthy teaching them concepts such as gravity and kinetic energy.
Secretly sharpen your child’s critical thinking skills with an elaborate set of tracks and marbles, capable of being fitted in unique and creative ways.
What we found so great about the Ravensburger Gravitrax Starter Set Marble Run & STEM Toy Games is the number of pieces. There’s 122 to mess with, including a cannon. You play the tiles down, use pieces to lock them together, and create pathways for the marble(s) to travel on. This creativity helped teach how gravity and kinetic energy affect speed and trajectory. Since the marbles are metal, magnetic pieces demonstrated how metal and magnets react to one another.
The Ravensburger Gravitrax is a great way of sharpening the mind, like the LeapFrog RockIt Twist Handheld Learning Toys Games System. Challenge your child with the objective of reaching a specific area with a limited number of pieces. For something more physical, check out the Elite Outdoor Toys Games For Kids.

The board itself is made of a series of hexagons, with each piece fitting perfectly into each one. This makes the board, and its pieces, interchangeable and all kinds of combinations can be made. And if you so choose, you can follow designs that come packaged inside.
The pieces themselves are surprisingly durable. Each piece is made of plastic, while the track the marbles follow is made of metal. We’ve seen similar durability from the ThinkFun Laser Maze Toys Games.

With how fun the Ravensburger Gravitrax Starter Set Marble Run & STEM Toy Games, the number of pieces you get in the original packaging, and the endless possibilities—we find the Ravensburger Gravitrax Starter Set Marble Run & STEM Toy Games to have superb value.
You already get 122 pieces to mess with but can expand your track to ridiculous lengths with expansion packs. The kind of learning kids can glean from this toy is great, not unlike the LeapFrog RockIt Twist Handheld Learning Toys Game System.
The best STEM toys know how to teach your kids new concepts without boring them, and that’s what the Ravensburger Gravitrax Starter Set Marble Run & STEM Toy Games does best: making learning fun. They’ll learn about gravity, magnetism, and kinetic energy in a way that will challenge their critical thinking skills. A good storage container should keep the pieces together.
