Sustainable and innovative
Made using sustainable cardboards, this innovative kit is not only fun and engaging to use, but also environmentally responsible. Fun and educational, constructing the Build Your Own Marble Run is the perfect activity for quality family time. You might choose to build it in stages, as this one is intentionally designed to be more of a project than a quick build. Full construction takes around four hours. So, grab your fellow builders and have some exciting fun as a family!
A technical build
The most technical build so far, budding engineers will enjoy the challenge of the construction. And once built, the Marble Run stands at an impressive 50cms tall, and has 3 different neon courses with run switches to randomise the marble directions.
Where can you buy the Build Your Own Marble Run?
The Build Your Own Marble Run is available to buy from Amazon alongside the rest of the Build Your Own range.
What we thought
This is a substantial project for the family to get involved with. Learning to follow the detailed instruction booklet, locating the relevant pieces and ensuring that you have prepared and placed them correctly. Tigger started to build this kit on his own, however, it was soon too much of a challenge for him and enlisted the help of Roo and What The Dad Said too. With a price tag under £25, this is not a kit that is built in minutes and then the focus shifts to playing with the marbles. This is a kit that encompasses the joy (and frustrations) of building alongside the fun that can be achieved at the end of the task.
