What our experts think
The SmartMax Mega Ball Run is a fantastic toy that lets children explore their imaginations. Children began by joining pieces together to create familiar shapes, then started trying out structures and rolling balls down the tubes and slides they had used. This exploration helps introduce children to forces by demonstrating that a ball will roll downwards, and the Mega Ball Run lets them experiment with this idea by trying out different structures. They can also learn to solve problems, by adjusting their structure to get the effect they want.
