Ever see “The Goonies”? This movie is full of cool contraptions, but the best one is the one at the beginning, described as follows by the film fanatics at thefilmcynics.com:
“Mikey pulls down on a string that raises a bucket, which releases the bowling ball that rolls down a track and falls into a bucket that pumps a set of bellows as it falls; the balloon inflated by the bellows pops, scaring a chicken that lays an egg that falls to trigger a crank that kicks a ball that hits a target that turns on a hose, which turns a sprinkler that spools a string that unlocks the fence’s front gate.”
Cool! As with other Rube Goldberg devices, this nifty gate-opener uses gravity and other physical forces to create a particular outcome. The Quadrilla Rail set from Hape lets your child experiment with physical forces in much the same way: building, using, and experimenting with complex working marble mazes! This is one of the most challenging Quadrilla marble maze sets, since the rails are meant to be level – the motion of the marbles is, instead, driven by the seesaws, accelerators, and other pieces that are added in.
Quadrilla marble mazes boast unparalleled quality, with beautifully crafted wooden pieces that notch together perfectly. The instructions for the Quadrilla Rail set give detailed instructions on how to build four marble runs (including a competition track for marble races!), but the real fun begins when your child masters those tracks and starts creating his own. Kids take tremendous pride in their Quadrilla creations, and building with Quadrilla teaches three-dimensional thinking, deductive reasoning, and problem-solving, as well as basic physics.
The Quadrilla Rail set has 102 pieces, including color-coded chutes and tunnels, accelerators, two seesaws, lots of rails, hole covers, spacing elements, instructions, and 100 colorful swirl marbles. For ages 4 and up.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
