Take It From Me: Techno Gears Marble Mania Orbiter {Review}

Techno Gears Marble Mania Orbiter {Review}

Awhile back my dad found this really cool homemade wooden marble run.  He couldn't help purchase it as a "grand kids toy."  We all secretly knew there was a part of him that just really wanted to play with it, but guess what--it really was a huge hit with all of the grand kids!  My kids still love to play with it every time we visit.  So when I saw an opportunity to try a super cool modern marble run of my own, I jumped at the chance.  The Techno Gears Marble Mania Orbiter is out of this world!  The cool sleek design, bright colors, and glow-in-the-dark feature make it really stand out and so much fun!
My kids were super excited to get the Marble Mania Orbiter and couldn't wait to put it together.  So immediately after dinner, they recruited my husband and got to assembling.  Putting everything together was pretty simple.  The directions were very helpful and everything came together really nicely.  Once it was all completely, it was time to put in the marbles and see how it worked.  For the most part it all went smoothly.  Just a few minor things with stabling the turning gears/hand-crank and the marbles getting stuck when they go in to the center tube, but honestly it really isn't too bad at all.  They are simple fixes and the overall process of the marbles spinning to the top through the tube in the middle than twisting and turning through winding tracks and jumps on their way down is quite impressive.  My kids are thoroughly entertained and could play with the Marble Mania Orbiter for hours on end!
But this space-themed version just wouldn't be complete without some glow in the day action right?!  Yep, turn off the lights and watch the track light up.  It astounded my kids and was just another cool little feature of the product that we could appreciate.  I hate to tell my dad that his cool wooden marble run is nothing compared to our new Techno Gears Marble Mania Orbiter, but at least my kids can have some marble fun wherever they go.

  1. This looks like a lot of fun. I always loved marbles when I was young but did not have something entertaining like this.

  2. That does look like fun! I remember playing with the old fashioned kind as a kid, but this looks even more exciting for today's crew. I'm also glad to hear that it's easy to put together.

  6. That is awesome that it glows in the dark! I wouldn't put it past my 4 year old to put marbles in his mouth so we don't own any yet, but I'm totally going to add this to my wish list on Amazon for down the road. Looks like fun!
