Who would love this: Science + Craft Lovers!
“Oh YES! It works! It works!” Once again, Funyards Australia blew us away with its innovative range of STEM-focused products! We tested this “3D Wooden Marble Run Puzzle Craft” recently. We are thoroughly impressed by its almost impeccable mechanism and clever design! This set is purely MAGICAL and impossible to resists!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Smart STEM Toy- This toy elevates the usual STEM products to another new complex level! Like other solar-powered range from Funyards Australia, this marble run kit combines physics knowledge with artistic craft. But this set pushes the demonstration of science further and beyond; apart from transformation of solar to kinetic energy, we always get to watch the mechanical effect of rotating gears, cleverness of “perpetual motion”, substitution of battery-power, and the work of invisible gravity force! The set comes with wooden sheets with removable laser-cut plywood pieces, a tube of glue, solar panel, motor with battery holder, 3 steel balls, and an instructions sheet. I love the versatility of this set - apart from working perfectly under direct sunlight, we can also switch the solar-powered mode to battery-operation. We love watching the spinning motion of the gear and how it captures the steel balls one at a time, lifting them up to the start of the track repeatedly, in an endless loop. We are thrilled assembling the pieces and witnessing this marvellous model comes into “life” (it took around half an hour to complete).
(2) Good Instructions- I love the easy to follow and step-by-step illustrative guide. I love that this kit labels each of the wooden sheets with alphabetical letters, which makes the construction process much quicker and easier! The pieces connect well and serve their purposes.
(3) Beautiful Display Item - We love the structural integrity and sturdiness of the wooden model. This is a beautiful decorative item that is fun to play with and delightful to look at!
(4) Compact - I love the compact flat-pack box made of eco-friendly and recyclable cardboard - light weight, exquisite, and makes such elegant gift!
This is another awesome educational STEM toy from Funyards Australia !
