Product Description

The sweetest way to experiment with physics!

Tracks and stunts snap easily onto the towering base of this genius gumball machine to create endless gumball-run possibilities, not to mention endless ways to learn about real scientific principles.

Learn about simple machines with the pulley lift stunt. See the concept of energy-transfer in action with the domino slide. Experiment with force, motion, and gravity with the trampoline and the variable-slope ramp.

There's also a pendulum, a pinball launcher, a funnel, and more, all waiting to fascinate, inspire, and teach!

With the Gumball Machine Maker, physics becomes an adventure in trial-and-error. Will your gumball successfully make it to the end of the track, or will you have to reengineer your machine to make it work?
