Q-Ba-Maze 2.0 Mega Stunt Set Review (MindWare)

What It Is

Q-Ba-Maze 2.0 Mega Stunt Set is an awesome-looking, engaging, and totally fun new version of MindWare's popular Q-Ba-Maze. The idea is to use various different pieces, which will guide the way the marbles fall through your construction, to build a vertical maze for marbles to tumble down in a clattering and highly entertaining way. We built the model that was shown in the instructions, which was pretty easy to do. But, of course, half the longer term fun of this set will be devising all kinds of crazy mazes and pathways using cool pieces, such as cascade stilts, a marble vortex, tubes, and a pivot trampoline.

Is It Fun?

This toy is all about creative thinking, trial and error, and fun when all the marbles come crashing down through your maze. And as they play, kids are discovering basic principles of physics and gravity, all the time having a blast as they experiment with the different cube configurations.

Who It’s For

MindWare says this is for kids of all ages, but with the steel marbles, they do advise that it's not for children under 3. Kids ages 7 and up, including adults, will have the most fun and get the most out of this. For the construction-minded and creative kids in your life, this may be a perfect choice.

What To Be Aware Of

Additional stunt sets and pieces are sold separately, so there's no telling what kind of amazing things you can create.
