The Magnificent Marble Machine is suitable for adults and children alike, although it can be described more as an interactive ornament and construction experience than a strict toy. The marble machine will delight all ages, but is best suited for mechanics over the age of eight. Younger children will love it, but they may find it challenging to assemble without the help of a more experienced engineer, making it a fabulous project for the family.
