The fun starts as high as you can reach. With the Wall Coaster Extreme Stunt Set ($25) marble run, kids can let the imaginations roll, building tracks consisting of zig-zags, change-ups, coasters, and catchers. Unlike a floor-based stacking marble run, this is a wall marble run, where pieces adhere to the wall using reusable adhesive. The adhesive is pretty much the same kind of putty used to tack posters to the wall, and it peels off easily. Once the track is set up, just drop in the glow-in-the-dark marbles and let gravity take care of the rest, as kids watch how their tracks affect the direction, velocity, and speed of the marbles on their bedroom wall. This toy helps kids feel constructive, and gives them a desire to optimize their designs. Though this set comes with several different types of pieces, older kids may find that they want to expand their sets to see how far they can take their creation.
