Growing Tree Toys Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review a fabulous educational toy from Growing Tree Toys. I was able to choose which toy to review & I decided to go with the Transparent Marble Run.

I chose this toy because my 4 year old god-daughter is completely obsessed with marbles & building things so I thought it would be a great toy for her. And, I was right. As soon as I showed her the box she was anxious to open it & get building. Rusty decided he'd be the one to help her build the first marble run (I think he wanted to play with it as much as s
he did, lol) so he handed her some parts & had her figure out which parts you could connect together in order for the marbles to continue down one path. She had so much fun that she didn't want to put the toy away at the end of the night. I had to promise her that she could play with it as soon as she woke up.
She told me her favorite part was putting the pieces together & watching the marbles roll down & through the tubes. While she was building her marble run I asked what age she thought people should be to play this & she said 77...so it just goes to show that young or old, you can enjoy this toy, lol.

She also informed me that she thought her little frien
d, who also loves marbles, would love one of these toys so I should buy her one & mail it to her, ha ha. In the end I'd have to say that this toy is great for a child to play with alone or with others. Its a really hands on learning toy (promotes reasoning, sequencing, observation skills & hand-eye coordination) & if you're looking for a quiet activity, this is it.
