EVERYONE’S FALLING FOR GRAVITY MAZE BY THINKFUN!
Only Marble Run with a Logic Puzzle is a Fun Spin on STEM
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (November 5th, 2014) – From the makers of the smash hit Laser Maze™ comes Gravity Maze™, the only marble run with a 3-D logic puzzle!
Played solo, Gravity Maze by ThinkFun engages kids ages 8+ in building and solving as they arrange colorful, translucent towers to whisk their marble from its starting point to target. The towers can be arranged in many visually stimulating structures, offering lots of creative building time, but only one design will solve each of 60 puzzle challenges, ranging from beginner to expert.
Judging by recent accolades, everyone is falling for Gravity Maze! It won ASTRA’s Best Toy for Kids, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award, Parents’ Choice Gold Award, National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Gold Award, Major Fun Awards, and consistently garners 5-star reviews.
“Gravity Maze is a departure from the usual marble run,” said Bill Ritchie, ThinkFun’s President and Co-Founder. “It’s a completely hands-on, playful, open-ended STEM engineering experience.”
Gravity Maze is the brainchild of Londoner Oliver Morris, nominated for Inventor of the Year in Game Design. If fans of Laser Maze feel a kinship to this falling marble logic game, there’s a reason for that! Four-time World Puzzle Champion Wei-Hwa Huang created the mesmerizing challenges for both games, providing players with access to one of the sharpest minds in puzzle circles.
Gravity Maze retails for $29.99 at Amazon, Target, ToysRUs, Barnes & Noble and neighborhood toy stores. You can learn more at www.thinkfun.com/gravitymaze.
