I have partnered with Play Monster for this feature
Ready to build? Who doesn’t love tinkering, gluing and creating? These Marbleocity sets one is for the older kids, age 9 (with some help) and older will have fun building their own marble run in the theme of a mini skate park. The standard Skate Park set is a step up from this one. You can also find the Marbleocity Dragon Coaster and Mini Coaster. Whether mini or the standard size sets you are actually building with wood and glue.
Inside the box are all the pre-cut pieces and instruction booklet with a fun comic story to motivate your child to begin the build. Like the wheels of the skateboards in the story, their marbles will do jumps, lifts and slides through the set once complete.
He is 9 1/2 and needed some help but the instructions were common sense. We did our own mods like gluing in extra spots and using small clamps to really make sure glue dries well overnight where the gears are placed.
You can find these building sets at Toys “R” Us stores and are a great STEM-based play and build set.
