I purchased two of these starter kits for my nephews. One is 12 the other will be 14 in a couple of months. The 12 year old seemed very interested, but the 13+ year old not so much. I'll have to update this review later to see if that changes. I thought they would both be interested in this as they like to build and create things. I did have an initial problem keeping the pieces connected, but my 12 year old seems to have figured it out. He was able to put it together and seems to actually enjoy the kit. Again, I will update in a few months to see if that changes for the 13+ nephew.More > < Less

Ok

I liked the idea of this marble maze, but once we opened it and started putting it together, the difficulty began. It doesn't balance very well on the floor. I would recommend buying at least 2 sets so you have enough to build a stable base.More > < Less

Looks like fun

Looks great to me, but it is a present for my granddaughter,so I guess you better ask her.

Clever idea, but...

12/11/2013 by Amanda

Our grandson really liked this idea and tore into it as soon as we gave it to him. The problem is, the little tunnels or chambers or whatever you call it do not hold together very well and come apart very easily. Thus my grandson was frustrated after a few attempts at putting it together and having it come apart too easily.More > < Less

Not sure about this one

This looks like lots of fun but really hard to work out. I tried to put it together to show a child how to do it and gave up because it kept falling apart.More > < Less

Q-BA-Wave - Sculptural Marble Maze

About Q-BA-MAZE 2.0

A-MAZE-ing Marbles

Marble runs have enchanted kids for decades. Architect Andrew Comfort’s grandfather built a wooden marble run for him when he was young, and the seedling for a new take on an old game was planted. Years later, Andrew designed a build-your-own marble run that encourages kids to create 3-D sculptures, play with the principles of engineering and spatial configuration, and enjoy endless fun.

Q-BA-MAZE consists of translucent cubes that fit snugly together to form a marble run. The openings in the cubes differ, so you can decide as you’re building if you want a marble to exit a cube from the side or the bottom. Some cubes have openings on both sides, so you can never completely predict the path a metal marble will take to the finish.

Build a fish, a moose, a tower, or whatever your imagination can think up. The game is new each time you start building. Set Q-BA-MAZE up in your family room, and watch as adults and kids can’t resist giving it a go. It’s addictive and enriching. Andrew’s granddad would be a-MAZE-d.
