I purchased two large MagTrax sets for my nieces and nephew for Christmas and I'm officially the best uncle ever now! It is so much fun to build with the kids to help them see some of the possibilities and then watch them experiment and build on their own. Every build presents unique possibilities so it's unlikely they'll get bored anytime soon, which can't be said for a lot of toys that also have educational value.
We…cause everyone plays with it:)….hung sheet metal on the wall on the stair landing to keep small pieces away from younger siblings. Mom and Dad love that it takes creative problem solving thinking to get everything to work. We use the blue putty when we need to extend the pieces off the sheet metal. Kids like that it’s lots of fun!
This is a great fun project to involve kids and adults. Every week the track gets more complicated. A magnetic Scrabble board was a good set up for another magnetic game.
I explained our situation in previous email basically I injured my hand and could t work saved up and Magtrax was the big gift and they didn’t even notice that we didn’t have many presents they were too busy playing Magtrax !
I absolutely love this! My granddaughter has been creating marble runs up and down my walls and Refrigerator. This keeps them busy and using their mind to create new tracks. And it’s made in the USA! It is so hard to find toys made in the USA! Thank you once again!
We had been eyeing this for a while before my daughter asked for it for Christmas. Last year we installed two large Mag Panels on our dinette wall and we LOVE our “magnet wall.” The Mag Trax are the perfect compliment to it! The kids have already spent hours perfecting to see whose side will be faster and my husband and I can’t wait to get our hands on it.
I love finding toys that will entertain my kids for hours on end. There are a few classics that my kids will use month after month, year after year, and MagTrax is top of the list. The possibilities are literally endless. It’s fun for all ages and a great family activity to do together. My boys recently made a little contraption that will turn off their light. The instructions and all the pieces they needed were included in the kit. It was simple enough they could complete it on their own, which made them feel so accomplished! They attached the lever to a string. When the lever is pulled, the marble is released down the wall, flipping the switch to the off position. How clever! As a mom, nothing makes me happier than seeing my kids be creative AND screen-free at the same time. But, for those days when they are feeling a little competitive, we love setting up marble races to settle the sibling rivalry. The only trouble you’re going to have is loving MagTrax more than your kids!
My kids 6 & 9 played for a few hours today setting up tracks all around the house. It was a perfect toy that allowed for communication, problem solving, and working together. I highly recommend mag Trax.
My two year old, 11 & 14yr old now have something they all can do together & keeps the baby busy
I bought Magtrax for my 8 year old's birthday. We've just spent 90 minutes together building a route on the kids' wall, and it's been the best 90 minutes ever. Sarah squeals "YES!" and "OMG!" every time she tests the route and it works successfully. When the marble flies off as it's too steep, she groans, but immediately gets to work on making adjustments. The product itself is well-made - strong, simple, intuitive, and it's well within the capabilities of an 8 year old and her father to put together. Her sister,. 10, is sent to different walls to test and report back on some of the more complicated items, like the loop-the-loop, and then we integrate into the larger path.
Very impressed. 5 stars for sure. And I'd also like to mention the customer service... it was tight getting the gift to my daughter on time, and Bryan upgraded the shipping at his cost to make sure it arrived, plus put a personal note from the inventor to my daughter.
We're delighted, and we'd love it if this review brought this product to more 8 year-olds; it's her favorite gift this year.
Thank you Daniel! We're so happy to hear you've all had a great time with them and that they helped make Sarah's birthday fun. We really appreciate your recommendation and support!
This is a great toy for any age. My son is 4 and I have just as much fun with it as he does!
Me and my daughter have great fun playing with the Magtrax. We built it onto the front of our dishwasher since it was a nice stainless steel surface.
Fun for kids, grandkids and grandparents! Mounted 2x3 metal sheets from home improvement center with 9 command (3M) strips makes for easy changes! We have 2 sheets together, and it fits the 75 piece set. Could be as large as you want to go.
Got this for the kids and also to solve some empty wall space we didn't know what to do with.
Bought some bronze coated metal sheets and bordered it with cord hiders for a clean look that goes with our living room.
Son has been tinkering with it like crazy, and got him off Fortnite for once, lol.
The family really loves playing around with MagTrax. We have it on the side of our refrigerator which makes for family fun as kids (*adults) play while waiting for a meal or snack to finish cooking.
We ordered the MagTrax for our young Grandkids, but all of our 20+ year-old kids and their friends/spouses took it over and were running competitions all night. It was a lot of fun, maybe next time they'll let the little ones play with it!
Great product! We will buy again for friends! The adults are playing with it as well. Just info: we have a Rustoleum magnetic wall. It was not strong enough to handle tracks with marbles flying around. Used gorilla mounting putty (it is white) and mounted 12”x8” galvanized metal roof shingles from Home Depot ($1.17 a tile) to give a large area of magnet fun.
OK. I bought these for my nephews as they are the “MacGuyver” type and I, of course, had to give them a try. Let me just say that every time I open the fridge, I rearrange the track and send the marble down 5 times. Occasionally the marbles do fall off the track, but the challenge is what makes me design the track better. It’s pretty addicting. If you want your kids to be problem solvers, this is a fun and engaging gift.
We made this 4'x5' magnetic board for our girls Christmas this year. They play with it all the time and it's a huge hit with their friends!
The boys lose track of time when they are making their tracks! We bought metal sheets fir the LR so they are always front and center!
I am a grandma who likes to give our grandkids a better choice than watching movies or playing video games when they come to our house. We have 22 grandchildren ages 1 to 17 and bought two large Magtrax. When the grandchildren came over the other day they played with them for hours! Setting the track up all the way down our stairs with inside and outside corners along with all the other imaginative pieces. When it was time for the two-year-old to go home they had to drag him away screaming.
Grandma score !!!!!! This is incredible creative entertainment for all ages!
Hi Kathy, thank you so much for the recommendation and sharing your video of that awesome track they built! That is one amazing track and is so fun for us to see. So glad they've been fun for your grandkids!
I purchased these for my niece and nephew (12 and 9 years old) and they were a huge hit. They've been up on the fridge since they got them, everyone in the household likes to play with them and change the track around from time to time. The pieces are very high quality and well designed. While they were a gift for the kids, they've ended up being fun for everyone. I highly recommend these for anyone who misses the classic marble run games or needs a good fidget toy.
Thanks for the recommendation, Jason. Way to be an awesome uncle, and so glad everyone has had fun playing with them!
My granddaughter, age 10, loved her MagTrax received from me for Christmas! Not only did she love it, her 24-yr-old uncle loved it too! We will be purchasing more in the coming year! Awesome product!!
Hi Katheryn, that makes us so happy to hear that both of them had fun and had some good bonding time. Thanks for sharing the pics!
My son loves the track, he uses gum balls on it and loves playing “track”.
My daughter and I spend hours setting up new courses and combinations. We love it!
Thank you Darren! So glad to hear you've had fun with them!
