My son has always loved to put objects together and figure out how they work. I can remember growing up my brother used to have some neat electronic toys like Capsela and they were toys that I can remember being so fun to play with. I have been on a mission to find him some cool building toys that will challenge his mind while having fun. I had an opportunity to review the Techno Gears Marble Mania – Mine Shaft 2.0 from The Learning Journey.



The Learning Journey Techno Gears Marble Mania Mine Shaft 2.0 is a construction set that will send marbles through a bucket and chain system. The marbles will go through chutes, twists, turns, and shaft bringing the marbles to a mining cart that will take the marbles back to the bucket to go again. In addition, the Mine Shaft has cool lights and sounds that add tons of fun and excitement.


The Learning Journey has an array of products that are similar to Mine Shaft but do different things. This particular set is part of the Adventure Series. In addition, they have Coaster Series, Race Series, Space Series and Tech Series.

At The Learning Journey, they have many products that are great for learning for all ages. Some of the items they have are Match It Memory, Match It Bingo, Match It Make It and more! Your children may not even realize they are learning because it is fun and interactive.

    It seems boys are more into trying to figure out how things work than girls are. I think this would make a great Christmas gift for our Grandson.
