3/5 Lolly 'Took a long time to set up and then if you even slightly moved it it all fell apart,'
5/5 JLB 'Easy assemble, keeps the little one entertained for a while. Would recommend.'
5/5 Gill 'Great product and great value for money given the size of the toy. Lovely bright colours. Only downside is it took a long time to build (around 30 mins on first attempt). Its soul destroying when your toddler knocks it over and destroys it and you end up spending another 30 mins rebuilding for her to knock it over again.'
5/5 Jackie 'Takes a while to build but my 9 year old granddaughter had no problem, infact it was bought for 4 year old but I think children of 4 need lots of help putting it together'
5/5 Laumak 'Great buy, doesnt come with glass marbles. Comes with plastic ones but works well.'
5/5 JM 'Great fun and great value. My son has been playing with it non stop.'
4/5 Susie 'Good product and a bit cheaper than other places.'
5/5 CS93 'My daughter absolutely loves it, she plays with it every night after nursery. We love how we can build it like the picture or into different sizes and length. Great quality product and the price is perfect'
5/5 Jmh73 'I brought this for my sons as they have one at pre school and enjoyed playing with them, I researched different shops and Argos seemed the most value for money at a reasonable price.'
5/5 Ats 'Bought this as a gift for my nephew. He loves finding and solving different ways of putting it together. Very reasonably priced for the amount of pieces in comparison to others. Very happy'
4/5 Hippychick 'Really good marble run...loads of parts. Quite expensive though. Daughter plays with it for hours. We ended making one long run which was great. Whether you do it the way the instructions tells you to or your own its not very sturdy....topples quite easily.'
5/5 Jay 'My son likes to play with it and good to re-arrange the layout to different routes'
3/5 Mariex 'It takes a while to put together and the instructions could be clearer but my children enjoy it'
5/5 AnnP 'The connecting pink pieces are a bot fragile if big kids stand it walk over it by mistake. Other than that the set is too good and worth the money. We love it. My kid makes creative connections and enjoys playing with it'
4/5 Isabellaandgeorgesmummy 'The kids did have lots of fun, it was just frustrating for us adults....'
5/5 Evan 'Not compatible with Gait but still lots of fun.'
5/5 Isaacsmummy 'Brought for Easter for my 4 yr old son.Hes had hours of fun and loves his marble run.'
5/5 CB 'My niece loved receiving this for her birthday and hasnt stopped playing with it!'
5/5 Waf 'Our grandson played with it for hours'
5/5 Dh110953 'Its a nice toy and so far brought hours of fun.'
4/5 Frank 'It works well and it great fun. But probably not the greatest quality. Will likely break within a year or two.'
5/5 Rachael19781 'Really good toy my kids have had hours of fun with it!! The marbles that come with it are not what I would call proper glass marbles they are made of plastic but still a fantastic toy!! Even better I got in in a half price sale!! Highly recommended even at full price!!!'
5/5 Sab 'It was really fun to play with my kids'
5/5 Nicolah 'My 5 year old was complaining she was bored at grandmas so I brought this while on offer and she loves it .... you dont need to play solo as you can build it separately so children can have their own design etc'
5/5 TeeDee 'We didn't time how long it took to assemble but it must have been close to an hour. Diagram is very small and quite complex. However out grandson loves it and so do we, The second time we put it together it took about 15 minutes. Good fun and great value'
5/5 MK 'This is a fun game to build. There are many small building 'blocks' but there could really be some more. The quality is good, there is loads of colours and the connecting parts are really well made and designed. The small marbles zoom through the various maze and towers and so is actually really fun to build and watch. But the marble/balls do look a lot like little sweets so must watch any very little children around this.'
4/5 CyJl 'Our 2 and 5 year old love this marble run. Lots of fun connector pieces and it is great that the tubes are see through so you can follow the marbles all the way through their journey. With young kids, the adults have to put it together as it requires a bit of problem solving and it can be easily knocked over - but I imagine that is probably the case with most marble runs. A great purchase.'
5/5 Karen 'Great value for money'
5/5 EmmaB4 'My three children (5yrs, 7yrs and 9yrs) have had hours of fun with their new marble run! This one is much better than their previous one because there are a lot more pieces and the plastic is really tough, so the pieces dont break easily.'
4/5 Chris 'Its a decent design but could do with some extra parts & far more detailed instructions as needs to be put together exactly as per instructions otherwise it doesnt work. Takes 45m-60m to assemble. Adding part numbers go each section would make it far easier to assemble. However once assembled its amused the kids for hours.'
5/5 Cc2291 'I bought this for my sons best friend for his 3rd Birthday, it looked that good when set up I bought it for my son and put it away for his birthday! Its so much bigger than expected. But they've had hours of fun playing with it. Must warn parents though they do have some small parts, like the balls are quite small so watch out for little children incase they put them in their mouth. other from that I bought this in the sale its brilliant value in comparison to other brands of it elsewhere!'
5/5 Lynn 'Purchased as a spare on the spur of the moment as in the half price sale but very happy with it. Instructions are difficult to follow so we followed the coloured picture on the box which made it much easier to put together. My grandson who is 4 loved it!'
5/5 Aimz91 'My son (aged 3) plays with this nearly every single day he loves it!!'
5/5 LondonMum 'My daughter is struggling with her fine motor skills and has been using this at school to help improve her pincer group. Shes been enjoying it so much she wanted one at home too. Its great, lots of possible combinations and really good fun.'
5/5 Kelly 'My 3 year old daughter loves playing it with the marble run when she is indoors and I think the colour marbles are great as you can find them easy'
5/5 Mimi 'Me and my son we love it.spend lots of time playing with it.great buy'
4/5 Grandma 'My grandson is 7 absolutly loved this,we had great fun playing it over and over .bit tricky to put together but really worth the money for fun factor.'
5/5 JW 'Opened and played with immediately.'
5/5 Jamie 'Good quality, fun product'
5/5 Maya 'Really easy to put together the first time with instructions to copy the initial design. It is also very easy for small children to put together however they want. Hours of fun for kids!'
3/5 Ladysurf13 'My little boy absolutely loves this, we sat down and took everything out to start building. It comes with instructions but they are so complicated. Try telling a 3 year old that they have to be patient.... it does not work so we went with the flow and decided to build it as we wanted. Great fun'
5/5 Mam 'Good fun with my 4yrs old son'
5/5 Sam 'I bought this marble track for my cousins 3 year old daughter. And she loves it! The pieces are simple to put together, with a good range of basic track and more fun twirly pieces. There is a lot of kit here, making for a range of possibilites. The only problem we had was getting my cousins husband to let his daughter have a go!'
5/5 Monkey 'Great toy a bit difficult to put together to start with but hours of fun had'
5/5 Duchess 'My grand daughter plays with one of these at someone elses house. She likes it so much that we bought it for her birthday. Good for Mums and Dads to interact with children in building this into all sorts of constructions. Educational in working out where the marbles will go.'
4/5 Sofia 'Kids love this marball run, I even got one for a gift.'
5/5 JellyBeans 'Great Christmas present for the kids and they loved it'
4/5 Debs 'Great product, the instructions were a bit hard to follow but once made the kids had lots of fum'
3/5 LW 'My daughter enjoys the marble run but I have to help set it up and it is quite flimsy. If it was easier to follow or sturdier we would probabaly use it more. It wasnt expensive so I would still recommend.'
5/5 SL 'Bought as birthday gift for 5 yr old niece to extend her marble run. She loved it.'
5/5 NannieT 'My granddaughter enjoyed building and playing with this'
4/5 Lubilu 'Bought this for my daughter whos is 5, the layout/ design isnt the best set up and wasnt thought through properly. My little one enjoys it though so I suppose thats all that matters'
5/5 BuilderBob 'The perfect present for kids!'
4/5 MJ 'Reasonable price and easy for children to build and play with.'

5/5 Cazza32 'Bought this for my nieces 3rd birthday. She loves it and has hours of fun with it! Brill value'
5/5 Nikki 'I bought this for my little one as a xmas gift.He is playing with it everyday .Its hour of fun.He is building it in a different styles and very amazed with his toys.I am glad i bought this product.'
3/5 Maria 'My son already has a smaller marble run and loves it, so we bought this as it has a lot more extra fun parts than other marble runs; the loop, steps etc. He loves those bits but all the marbles usually get stuck somewhere down the line. The marbles are plastic balls and they still get stuck, especially in the spinning gears. So forget using proper marbles - the name of the product is quite misleading. Some parts were also bent and unusable and the whole thing is too flimsy and skewed.'
4/5 Kim85 'Would be a great product if it was a bit more solid.'
5/5 Ellie 'Great for little children and big children too lol'
5/5 Joyce 'My grandson loves this its so. Bight and colourful'
5/5 Jped 'Bought for 3yo girl's birthday and she loves it! Great for imagination, creativity and problem solving skills. Highly recommended'
5/5 Tim2000 'Bought it for a present. Was very impressed with delivery time slots. Very informative email updates. Will be ordering more soon.'
5/5 Mojo 'Large box of fun - great toy'
5/5 Pineapple 'I bought this as a birthday present for my two year old nephew. He loves it as do his four year old brother and seven year old sister. I'll admit I enjoy building it and playing with it too! Probably needs some adult help for assembly, at least first time out. It comes apart if it is knocked over so you just need to be careful or be prepared to have to reassemble!'
5/5 Smum 'Tricky to build and quite flimsy but great fun had by the children'
4/5 Kirstie 'Great toy the kids love it'
5/5 Jeanette 'Brillant he will spend hours on it'
5/5 Butterfly 'You get what you pay for, the product is pretty flimsy. I don't normally write negative comments, apologies for this. I spent hours fixing, my child enjoyed playing the first time, then after marble was flying out instead of proper drop to the base - this needs to be addressed. A couple of times, everything collapsed down as well, a waste of my time trying to understand the diagram instruction :('
1/5 Mom 'Good idea but poor quality, keeps coming apart'
2/5 Looby '3 year old loves it.'
5/5 Lynie 'Our four year old loves the game. It keeps her and Daddy entertained! Good quality for the price.'
4/5 Kat 'I got this marble run for my four year old daughter for her birthday and she loves it. There are tons of pieces, lots of fun variations and she loves watching the marbles go racing down. She also enjoys building it, but judging by how it takes three adults to 'help' her each time, the grown ups enjoy the building of it even more. The only drawback is that instead of proper marbles there are little plastic balls, which are somehow less satisfying, but still this is fantastic value.'
5/5 Jpkent 'Not opened it yet as got my daughters third birthday but looks good. Cant wajt to see it.'
4/5 Dan 'The toy is a lot of fun and my little boy loves it but he become frustrated because I followed the photo on the box as there were no instructions, and if you follow the photo on the box there are parts of it that the balls cant get to. My son is autistic and he noticed straight away and become upset, I tried to change it but he thought it was wrong because he wanted it to be the same as the box :('
3/5 Grandmashell 'Took ages to put together very flimsy not sturdy at all'
3/5 Stargirl 'Colourful, well made and loads of fun. Absolutely recommend.'
5/5 Munchkin234 'We bought this for our 5 year old. We found the instruction were a wee bit complicated, the marble run itself keeps leaning over & coming apart easily. Once all set up though our daughter enjoyed it & wants to try making up her own design so shes enjoying it.'
4/5 Docsax 'Looks great until you actually try and put it together, there's a lot of pieces and getting them in the right place is not easy and I have an engineering qualification,all in all a bit of a let down,the instructions are rubbish.'
3/5 Mia 'Perfect for an indoor toy. It doesnt matter how old you are as long as you love construction toys'
5/5 Jenny 'Bought for my 6 yr nephew, was worried he would be a bit old for it but he lives it'
5/5 Busyshopper 'Bought this for my son and thought it would be a big hit but hes hardly played with it. We bought some of the old fashioned glass marbles but unfortunately they were not comparable so could only use the plastic ones that came with it. We bought it in the sale so cant grumble at the price but just didnt turn out to be as much fun as we thought and is now back in the box'
3/5 Kaz 'Brilliant game to keep the child entertained'
4/5 Smilely 'It takes a while to set up, but once completed we had a lot of fun'
3/5 Angieanddavie 'Kids love it keeps them happy for awhile easy for them to build'
4/5 Mumof2 'This is so much fun for my 3 year old and 7 year old...they thoroughly enjoyed this toy.'
5/5 Ed 'My kids love it, yours will too. Great value kit, although we woukd have liked the connections to be somewhat stiffer to support stronger structures.'
4/5 Muskan 'I bought it for my son who is 4 years and he loves playing with it for hours.'
5/5 J95 'Bought for 4 year old after seeing one in school. Easy to build and very enjoyable.'
5/5 Lauren 'My 3 year old little boy has hours of fun, making it shorter, higher, wider! He loves watching all the different ways he can make the marbles fall! Would highly recommend!'
5/5 Damian 'Great value for money, easily put together and plenty of alternative layouts to keep little ones entertained.'
4/5 Jennyp 'My 5yr old son plays with it every day,absolutely loves it. Durable, easy to put together ,bright colours. Really has become a favourite'
5/5 Claire 'This entertains both my 3 and 4 year old . They love watching the marbles go down after building the tower. They do need support to build the tower at times but it a high quality toy and great value for money .'
5/5 TrishW33 'Our 4 year old granddaughter loves it and has hardly stopped playing with it since she got it! She makes up her own designs for it as she constructs it. It was very good value and wed definitely recommend it!'
5/5 Ozzybear 'This is quite complicated to get the balls to run down without getting stuck at something. Does take a lot of fiddling and moving till you get it right. My son does get angry with it as it is very unstable and falls over. But overall for the money it is good.'
4/5 HZegg 'Great buy. Excellent value. 3yr old boy loves it.'
5/5 Simon 'Well made and easy to set up. It's a constant favourite.'
5/5 Sbeqs 'Value for money. Fun. Durable. Also you can buy other sets to make even bigger towers.'
5/5 Lucy 'Flimsy , disappointed , falls over a lot , doesnt fit standard marbles'
