Children will love constructing their own unique designs and watching the way marbles roll through them. Or, copying the wonderfully concise designs included in the Twist and Rail play manual. Making sure each track, each block, each ramp is positioned just right. The Quadrilla Spiral and bright red See-Saw Accumulator highlight this set. The See-Saw Accumulator adds drama to any design as each side fills to the tipping point, then unleashes a torrent of marbles. Kids can create tandem designs and race marbles through them. Start simple to get the hang of all the color coded blocks, then increase the complexity of designs. How high can you build? Mom and Dad will love playing, too. Just make sure to let the kids have their turns.</div></p> <h5><div id="header1">The Marble Run that Teaches </div></h5> <p><div id="text1">Quadrilla offers up so many creative possibilities along with troubleshooting and critical thinking exercises. "Why didn't the marble go where I wanted to go?" "Was the right block positioned in the right way?" Kids will be challenged to complete designs, troubleshoot their designs and correct or redesign. Using designs included in the manual children learn to follow clear construction plans and can troubleshoot as they build. Younger children will find Quadrilla just as engaging as they learn simple construction techniques and definable cause and effect. </div></p> <h5><div id="header2">Stable Structures in Wood</div></h5> <p><div id="text2">Quadrilla Vertigo from Hape includes 98 building pieces including the See-Saw Accumulator, the famous Spiral, color coded hardwood blocks and sturdy baltic birch tracks plus 50 marbles. The Spiral is a woodworking masterpiece made from one piece of wood that is stretched and then kiln-dried, a wonderful example of Hape's wooden toy manufacturing expertise. The See-Saw Accumulator fills alternating sides with marbles to the tipping point and pours them out ready for the next load. Structures are stable and sturdy. Concise, color coded manual makes completing Marble Runs easy.</div></p> <div class="break"></div><h5><div id="header3">Why Hape?</div></h5> <p><div id="text3">Hape makes toys for children.
