As a child, I was always avid to make a contraption like the breakfast machine in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Anything that MacGyvered household items together to make something work amazed me. Even though I never had the talent to make something that intricate, this Marble Run is a great alternative for kids who want to use their problem-solving skills to create their own colorful invention! You can get as simple or as complex as you would like, adding decorations or even making your run function like the game of Mouse Trap! The possibilities are endless for this one!
