Gravitrax is the all new STEM track system from Ravensburger! If you are a lover of the likes of Lego and using your imagination to build up your own worlds then this is something you are going to love. You get a book included with tracks but I always think the best part is having free reign to build imaginative tracks of your own design and set the Gravity Spheres rolling!
The Gravitrax track system can be extended indefinitely with extra track packs and add-on’s, each sold seperately and which will be another review later as we have had the pleasure of trying out some already! The best part of all …. Batteries are not required!

The Gravitrax track system can be extended indefinitely with extra track packs and add-on’s – each sold separately. This set is suitable for 1+ players, ages 8 years and up.
We have spent many days now building our own tracks and I love that it is giving the girls confidence in areas I would never have thought of. Amelia is loving all of the counting and copying involved in building her tracks from the books and Evie is enjoying using her imagination to get her own tracks built.
I can remember being small and keeping all of the toilet roll tubes to make my own marble runs and this brought back so many memories – everything is just bigger and better now! This really is a great kit for education and play purposes and I can see it being a huge success with all ages. I know it recommended for ages 8+ but I think with stern parental guidance it could be used for younger – the small parts and balls are obviously a concern but you know your own child and Amelia is loving this!
