Techno Gears Marble Mania Dual Speedway 2.0 Review

My boys really loved reviewing: Techno Gears Marble Mania Dual Speedway 2.0. It isn't every day that they get things in the mail just for them. 

Dual Speedway 2.0 is the child s creation of twisting and turning racing tracks. With dual launchers your kids can race against each other and see who crosses the finish line first. I do love that they have more than one track. It makes it fun for the kids to race.

There are more than 300 pieces that will create an exciting marble speedway. If your child likes to set things up like Legos or K'NEX building sets, they will love this toy. Part of the fun, and challenge in Mica's case was setting it up. 

The toy is for ages 8 and up. Mica just turned 9. He's usually really good about setting Lego sets up, but something went wrong with this. It had to be disassembled, and reassembled with Daddy's help. In Mica's defense Isaak was pestering him the whole time he was setting it up. Isaak wanted to play with the track. Mica's concentration was lacking.

When Daddy helped, they had no trouble at all.


At this stage I asked Mica, "What size of batteries do you need?" Mica replied back saying, "Energizer will do." Not the reply I was needing. On the box it told me what size of batteries I needed. It requires two AA batteries and two button cell batteries.



The boys showing you how it works.

Mica insisted at the end of the video that they would shake hands. They shake hands in jiu-jitsu after any meet.


The bottom line:

The boys love this toy. I think they'll play with it for a long time. The racing factor is what makes it fun for them.

An older kid does need to set it up, but may loose interest in playing with it. Isaak who is 6 loved playing with it once it was together. Do not let kids that are really young play with this. They say under 3, but Isaak still put stuff in his mouth when he was 4.


You can get Techno Gears Marble Mania Dual Speedway 2.0 on Amazon for $59.99 and it's on sale for $46.18. This toy is compatible with all Techno Gears sets. Like always I'd like to get more of their sets to make this one more fun. They can work together, and be configured different ways.

I LOVED these kinds of toys when I was little. This one kind of reminds me of that game Mouse Trap.

Oh man, this looks so fun! I've purchased one as a gift, but have never had one for my kids. This could be the year (I start shopping for Christmas very early). ;)
