Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Fun I'm not sure why anyone at all would give this set a bad review. My 5 year old LOVES it, and she has no problem getting pieces to stay together at all. It increases her creativity, critical thinking skills, and we have just PLAIN OLD FUN. Its a toy, so therefore, it is meant to be fun, not perfect. We have enjoyed this and other Q BA Mazes sets for about a year, We sit it all out, and create dozens of mazes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This set adds more excitement to the maze. This set is an excellent addition to the Q-BA-Maze line. For the most part, the marbles in these mazes run internally, i.e., inside the cubes. Getting them outside the cubes adds more interest. The rails get the marbles outside, and allow them to travel greater distances. The set also includes 8 L-exit cubes, a new configuration, that adds more versatility to the maze. The instruction set includes free falls where the marbles fall from one level to another outside any cubes. How daring! Altogether, these marble mazes are imaginative and very well designed and manufactured. A great toy for any age, even 82.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Stem toy I bought this for my 5 year olds birthday (I also have two 7 year olds. The 7 year olds were able to manipulate it right out of the box and figure out the rails to move things back and forth. I wanted all the kids to really enjoy and understand what the capabilities of the product are so my hubby and I used the plan to build the advertised set up together. As we did this the kids watched and we explained each piece what it does and how it is needed to make the plan work. Once built the kids played for hours and my 7 year olds were even able to make suggestions on how to change the structure to work better for them. I.e. getting two openings to come together to meet a single catcher. After a while we took the structure apart and had the kids sort the pieces into open drops, single way, 2 directionals, rails, etc. We again talked about what each piece did. All 3 started to build individual smaller structures and continuously test them out with a marble to see if they had put them together the desired way. Now 3 weeks after purchase the 7 year olds can build the plan without any parental help and all 3 kids can manipulate the pieces and build various small and functioning small pieces. I am sad for the reviewers that gave up so easily. This is a great stem toy. It gets my kids thinking about cause and effect. It helps them create a hypothesis on what is needed to join two areas or make the marble follow a certain path, then they build - testing out their plan, and make adjustments to correct their errors. I hope that everyone that buys this toy for young children, realizes that they will have to sit down with their child and walk them through use of the product and show them how enjoyable it can be. I love independent toys just as much as any other mom, but independence of this toy comes later. It is not one you can just set infront of little kids and then walk away from. Also, I find the pieces click and unclick very easily even for my 5 year old, but this too comes with understanding how the pieces work. We have had Konnects which are impossible for my 7 year old son to click together. Little legos which my 5 year old shys away from. And Constructs which even I can't snap together. So in the grand scheme of building toys, q ba maze are the easiest my kids have used. There are so many ways to plan with these and they provide hrs and days of fun. I just bought variations to add to our set and enjoy them just as much as the kids.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to assemble, very cheap quality, does not stay together well This was difficult to assemble and very cheap quality. The cubes come apart easily and my child spent more time trying to keep it together than playing with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Less than stellar The age recommendation (at least for construction) should be 16 and up. After a frustrating 1/2 hr attempt by the (Lego aficionado) recipient to start construction, adult assistance was necessary. Actually it took the adult quite a while to put the maze together as the joints are very unstable and cubes do not slide together with ease. During play, any slight movement had it falling apart, rendering it frustrating and so not fun. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 9 Year Old Daughter Loves it I bought this item for Christmas for my 9 year old daughter and she loves it. She loves to make new designs and to see if the marble will make it to the bottom of her design. She does enjoy many of the STEM games and hadn't never really played with dolls. This was the perfect game for her.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Q-BA-MAZE 2.0 Rails Extreme What an awesome, challenging toy. For our 8 year old granddaughter, it was good my daughter, who is a chemical engineer, sat down with her and went through the directions step by step. Then it did begin to look like the picture. For this to be fun, need patience of child and perhaps help from parent to get started if they are age 8 or so.
