Kids Will Love Designing and Building Marble Runs with the GraviTrax Interactive Track System from Ravensburger (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a sample from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

My girls had been asking for the GraviTrax Starter Set for quite some time, before the kind at Ravensburger sent along a sample for review recently. They had used this starter set along with expansion packs in their engineering homeschool class outside the house, and always looked forward to working with their friends to create fun and innovative marble runs with the 122 pieces that come with the starter set.  Both boys and girls really get into this STEM toy, and spend hours putting together and manipulating the different track setups to create fun race tracks, as well as conduct experiments with gravity, magnetism and kinetics, as they propel the ball to the finish.

About the GraviTrax Starter Set:

"The Ravensburger Gravitrax - Starter Set an electronic-free, modular, interactive track system where parents can build and design a customized marble run. This STEM toy ideal for little boys and girls aged 8 and above. It will allow your kid to experiment with magnetism, gravity and kinetics. With over 100 pieces and 18 different construction elements, the GraviTrax Starter Set offers everything you need to begin building your own action-packed track systems. Help your kiddo discover the laws of physics and how it impacts our life. 

The marble takes with curves, junctions, freefalls and even a magnetic cannon. Experiment with different play options, including racing, creating the longest track or executing trick shots."


My girls were so excited when we received the starter kit, and were quick to start playing with the GraviTrax interactive track system right out of the box.  

Even though we don't the expansion packs -- there are a handful you can get including a hammer, looping wheel, lifter, and even tunnels -- the girls still spent hours playing and building this the GraviTrax. With the 112 pieces that come with the starter set you really don't need the expansion pieces -- they are just nice to get if you want to add a fun feature to your current interactive track system.  My girls are hoping that Santa brings trampoline and scoop expansions to add to their starter set for even more fun.

Like I said, my girls have been enjoying the GraviTrax starter kit in their homeschool engineering class.  They have learned all about gravity and kinetics with this hands on learning interactive track system. Kids who learn better with hands on learning, will definitely love the GraviTrax track system.  While it may seem a little pricey at $59.99, it really isn't when you look at the great quality of this starter sit, all the pieces to build and create with, and how this interactive track system will provide hours of fun for kids of all ages, as well as adults.  There are so many possibilities to build their the starter set, that it offers endless fun for all.

We have had the GraviTrax for a few weeks, and the girls continue to play with it daily.  They love switching up their race tracks and setups to find different way to get their ball to the finish line the fastest, and in the most unique ways.  And, whenever my husband comes home from work, my girls are quick to bring him to the living room to show him their current GraviTrax build they have worked hard on, before demoing it. Then, they will take apart and work with their Daddy to come up with other fun ways to connect and build.

I could go on and on about how great the GraviTrax Starter Set from Ravensburger is, and how it would make for a great STEM gift to give your kids this holiday season, but why not check it out for yourself...I know you'll love it, too! This is definitely one of those gifts that they will play with long after the tree comes down.  You can learn more about the GraviTrax Starter Set and see the different expansion pieces that are available from Ravensburger by visiting
