What Customers Are Saying

This was the first Gumball Machine Kit that I have owned and my son was super excited to put it together. He enjoyed playing with the different tracks and I think it would be fun for older kids and even adults. I was worried about the gumballs falling off the track and I had to put extra tape on the track to keep the balls from rolling out of the tracks but it is very easy to do. My daughter had been asking for a gumball machine for a long time, and I couldn’t find a kit that was large enough or sturdy enough. I finally found this one, and it has been a big hit. The track segments move easily, and are easy to assemble. The tracks are made out of a high-quality plastic. The gumballs are a little hard to push down into the track, but they come with a handy tool to make it easier. There is a small supply of gumballs included with the kit. The gumballs roll down the track and do some cool stunts. The kit is a great toy for both boys and girls. It is fun to watch and play with. It is also a great educational tool that can be used with kids that are learning about how things work. A great gift! This was my daughters first science kit that I purchased and I must say that I am very impressed with it. It is very easy to put together and includes everything needed to create several different machines. It also comes with a set of wooden tracks that are used in the track segment but can be easily removed for the creation of different machines. I would definitely recommend this kit to anyone looking for a simple way to introduce their kids to the basic concepts of physics and mechanics.
