    What an awesome list! That marble run looks like something I would have loved!

    What about Brio trainsets? Those were tremendous favorites of my brothers and I from very young to quite old. They’re wonderfully sturdy, expandable, long-lasting, and can vividly remember learning about polarity while playing with the magnets on the trains. Mom’s saving our extensive collection for the grand kids.

    The cool thing about some (most) of these toys is that they are appealing to adults, too. I really like the marble run and dominoes myself.

  3. JK says:

    I remember having a wooden marble track! Those things are always lots of fun :). Creativity and science.

    I really like the musical triangle. The fact you can flip it over and use both of its side is pretty cool.
