Mega Marble Mania Review & $50 HearthSong Gift Card Giveaway

My daughter is obsessed with building blocks and construction kits.  She loves building and creating masterpieces on a daily basis.  You never know what her next creation will be but they are always wonderful!  She loves building and constructing things so much that building toys are the one and only thing she's asking for this holiday season.

Mega Marble Mania from is one of those toys perfect for a child who loves to build and create things they can play with! 

Mega Marble Mania is an industrial-looking structure, with dual tracks, sounds and even a motorized power lift to bring marbles back to the top.  It's also great for teaching problem-solving skills.

My husband and daughter put this together, it took them nearly 4 1/2 hours.  With a couple short breaks, of course.


While my husband could have done it quicker by himself it was the process of doing it with our daughter that made it worth while.  She loves building things so it was the perfect opportunity for her to do just that!
Reading and following the directions step-by-step was a great learning experience for her.  

Mega Marble Mania was bigger and more complicated than anything she's created before.  

She worked so hard and waited so patiently for it to be complete.  Once it was finished she couldn't wait to play with it.  The look on her face as the marbles went up the elevator lift, round and round, through tunnels, tipping and climbing... was absolutely priceless!


As soon as her brother heard the crazy sounds and excitement, he had to come and find out what was going on.  Together they played with it for over an hour without taking a break.  My husband and I watching them the entire time - they were having so much fun together!

I'm highly impressed at how durable and sturdy this toy structure is.  The parts fit tightly together and the plastic and moving parts are thick and strong.

Mega Marble Mania is mesmerizing and provides hours of fun!


HearthSong has everything you can possibly imagine!  They have toys, games, arts, clothing, outdoor toys and so much more! I could spend hours just browsing through their great selection.
