The Gravity 'Elevator Circuit' Set from Geomag Mechanics is made of recycled plastic (not 100% but almost!) and is a fantastic set for children interested in learning about gravity and the science of magnetic construction.
Build your elevator circuit and learn to use gravity to turn your motor (no batteries or electricity needed!), running the metal spheres up and down the track in this innovative set.
Made in Switzerland, the elements of this system are so well build (as with all Geomag products) and it is a fantastic gift to encourage children's creativity, inventiveness and a hands-on approach to problem-solving. All of course while having fun building lots of exciting creation!
Our Mechanics Gravity 'Racetrack Set', the 'Loops & Turns Set' as well as the 'Elevator Circuit Set' are all part of the Geomag Mechanics Gravity 'Easy Combo System'. This means that these building sets can be combined to build even bigger circuits for an endless play experience!
What it contains: 207 building pieces for the construction of a circuit
