It's part toy and part science project! The iCoaster is a magnetic rollercoaster kit with music! How cool is this toy? Here's our iCoaster review.

The latest toy from Magnetix is the iCoaster - a rollercoaster kit that's part toy and part science experiment!| It's a pack of magnetic pieces that you can snap together to build a rollercoaster. Once you have it set up, you plug it into the base to add music to your creation - there's a basic selection but you can also plug in an mp3 player to add your fave Chris Brown tracks to the action. Unfortunately, the iCoaster is fragile and tricky. You need a chunk of flat space, or maybe some super-short carpet, to set it up and it falls apart easily so watch out for pets and siblings. There are a bunch of designs right out of the box, and you can build your own once you get the hang of it, but a few pieces are unreliable and end up dropping the metal marbles off the track. It also runs on batteries unless you buy an extra cable so you can plug it into the wall! Basically, iCoaster is a giant heap of cool that would look perfect in a mad scientist's lab - but it takes patience, space and imagination to use it properly.

iCoaster Thumbs Up:

  • Magnetic track lets you build some awesome stunts.
  • Plug in your mp3 player for custom tunes!
  • It looks fantastic when it's all set up.
  • iCoaster Thumbs Down:

  • It falls apart really easily.
  • You need to buy extra cables to plug in an mp3 player.
  • Unless you buy a wall-plug cable it runs on batteries.
  • You need a big flat space to set it up.

    I really agree with --Kat-- when she says she's bored of seeing "First to #" and "Last one to say "Etc" wins" threads. She decided to make a thread about Boys vs Girls thread which is pretty smart! So here it is, a game where different continents have to say a country from their Continent. You keep going until someone repeats a country someone had already said, then they're out. Who's gonna be the last one standing? Rules: -Please don't post more than one country per person because it gives less chances for other people in your Continent to post a country. -Don't post unnecessary things, stay on the game's subject. -This is only for fun. The winning Continent, please don't boast to other people. In America, States can be said as a country as well. That's it, have fun!
