(Fat Brain Toy Co. $158)
We've played with many ball runs over the years -- but this brings it to a whole new level. The toy comes with a motor that blows air into the many tubes you construct -- setting all the foam balls into motion. It's both a lesson in physics and engineering -- with a huge side of FUN. Our testers loved seeing all the variations they could come up with to make the balls go, go, go. Pure fun.
Set comes with 20 foam balls, the motor (you need to charge before using), lots of tubes and connectors. You can also buy additional tubes and balls. Marked 3 & up but this is a toy that will be enjoyed by all ages (including adults).
