Who would love this: Science + Construction/ Building / Marble Run lovers!
We have tested three sets of Geomag Mechanics Gravity range, each has its own uniqueness and features that get us excited. But this Mechanics Gravity Loops & Turns is, without a doubt, the boy’s ultimate favourite. Today, I’m going to share with you the what, why, and WOW of this ingenious STEM toy!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Loops & Turns 360 Degree- This set comes with 130 mechanical elements (connectors, magnetic rod, cylindrical and modular parts, clear ramps, steel spheres, and instruction booklet) to build a circuit system that loops and turns! The most distinctive feature of this kit is the “loopy” ramp that turns 360 degree like an adrenaline-pumping roller coaster in mini scale! This set also comes with two innovative cannons; When a moving sphere hits the cannon piece, the attraction force is triggered and launches the ball at the other side in incredibly furious speed, sends it to a 360 degree loop and back to its starting spot. I love how engaging and stimulating the experience is. The futuristic colours (green, white, blue, bold orange) add on to the aesthetic level of this creative structure.
(2) Straight-Forward Instructions- The recommended age of this toy is 8, but once you get used to the assembling techniques, a younger kid (like my six-year-old) can also participate in the building process and be part of this impressive experiment! The only part which is a little more challenging to slot in is probably the turning ramps. Other than that, the connection is generally straight-forward. I love the satisfying “click” sound when some of the parts are connected correctly. The illustration booklet has detailed diagrams with step-by-step guide on how to link the pieces together, which I find really helpful.
(3) Quality- I love the Swiss made quality. I also love the fact that this set is made of 74% recycled plastic. You gotta love a brand that plays a part in sustainability! The product is aligned with stringent European and international safety standards, which is a BIG tick! ✅
(4) Expandable - MOST importantly, the set can be combined with other kits from the “Gravity Mechanics” range and make one BIG exciting track! Watch the videos below!
