A very good product. Steve M - Homeschooler

I heard over the phone, his excitement as he opened the gift. Christmas was a couple of days later. He absolutely loves legos, so he switched his attention to those. I know when he actually starts to play with the Levitation Kit, he will love it. Lauren B - Homeschooler

Tape four of the wooden blocks together, glue on the angled plastic barriers, and add on the long magnetic strips, making sure the North side is facing up.

Glue the short magnetic strips onto the fifth piece of wood - South side against the wood - Set it on the track, and watch with fascination as it floats and glides freely and smoothly!

You're actually controlling the raw power of magnets! ...And that's just the beginning.

      Magnetic Levitation Train Set

      This levitation set is very nicely packaged with easy to read instructions. The wood in the kit to set up the track is cut a little rough. I bought a finished piece of poplar that was 2' long and same width to make the track. This is a much easier way to go rather than try to line up the 4 blocks to get them straight. Overall an excellent set!

      Information about Magnet Levitation Kit

      Product was good. However the functionality lacked slightly in one area. The nature of the train guides was very difficult to accurately and appropriately build. The guides themselves are too short and thus do not do a great job of managing the train. I abandonded the guides and built my own for better results. Honestly an additional 1/4" would sufficed.

      A Fun Project

      We purchased this kit when my 10 year old son decided to build a model mag lev ski lift as part of a science camp he was taking. This was a fun project for us and assembled in two days. The hardest part was cementing the magnet strips. One note:we did substitute our own length of wood (which we happened to have on hand) in place of the blocks provided, just because it was easier and seemed sturdier for our use. The final project was a big hit with his classmate. He also enjoyed playing with the other magnets in the kit.
