International Playthings Quercetti Marble Run with Motorized Elevator

About the Quercetti Marble Run with Motorized Elevator

Remember the game “Mousetrap,” the board game in which you constructed an elaborate device to capture a brightly-colored mouse under a cage? The joy of the game was watching the Rube Goldberg device run - unfortunately, you had to do a whole lot of game-playing before that ever happened (and, if your family was anything like ours, you lost or broke pieces of the mousetrap after the first time you played it, and it never worked correctly again).

 

With a marble run like the Quercetti Marble Run with Automatic Elevator, you can skip all the tedious game-playing and get right to the fun part: watching gravity and cause-and-effect at work. This marble run sends marbles through an elaborate maze with spirals, tunnels, funnels, and more – and then sends them right back up again, up a battery-operated chain elevator, so the fun never needs to stop.

 

Best of all, because this is a marble run with loads of pieces for you to arrange and rearrange, you can customize how the Quercetti Marble Run with Automatic Elevator works. You can adjust the marble elevator’s height, put the double entrance funnel and spirals wherever you like, and even add these 177 pieces to other Quercetti Marble Run sets. Or, you can have the marbles drop onto a seesaw which causes a match to flick on paper and burn a string which drops a weight and... well, it’s up to you.

 

The Quercetti Marble Run with Automatic Elevator has limited instructions, so it may take some time and problem-solving to get a working run built; parents of younger kids will have to help. But once it’s built, kids will be enchanted with watching the marble run go over and over and over again - and once the marble run is built, they can begin their own experiments! This is a building toy with tremendous play value, which will delight the entire family. Requires two AA batteries, not includes; suggested for ages 5 and up; made in Italy.

 

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
