Product is easy to read. Must follow directions to get it to work. We had to fix on our feet a slight balance problem so the marble would roll.
Fitting the pieces was at times difficult. In fact after dry fitting some pieces I broke a piece when I was pulling them apart to prepare to glue. I also think that the instructions for glue placement should have been carried through the instructions. I needs some sand paper to make some pieces fit and a hammer to put the axle in. Once complete is worked as expected but part of the fun should have been in the building but that was not what happened
This was purchased for a child who loves building and tinkering; he enjoys taking things apart, but doesn't necessarily know how to put said things back together so they work again. The designers of this STEM toy took the creativity of basic marble runs and added mechanics and basic machines to the equation, instantly capturing my kid's fascination. He was able to put the entire coaster together with no help other than the instructions provided. I'd purchase another set without hesitation. Note: The glue is provided and was important to use for stability.

Wood pieces were warped, marbles did not fit through the pre-made holes. Once built, had to tilt so far to get marbles to move, they fell off track. Bought for 11 yr old, adults had to assist with gluing and holding together. Wish I would've researched better on this. Had a very disappointed kid.
The 12 y/o learned to follow non-electronic (thank you!) directions had quality time with Grandpa, both of whom enjoyed themselves during the building process. Then the 5.5 y/o got to play with it and was beside himself with excitement. An excellent gift all around. I think it will be in use for quite awhile.
