Great for your child's development:
Designing and building their own marble runs with the Marble Madness Game is great for getting your child to think about different combinations of pieces. And they can find out what works well, through trail and error. This game helps to develop good problem-solving skills. Experimenting with 'what happens if …' helps your child learn about cause and effect, and encourages their natural curiosity about the world. Putting the Marble Madness Game pieces together is great for little hands to develop strength and coordination, and develops fine motor skills, which are so useful for playing, dressing, drawing and writing. Building marble runs with friends and family is good for building social and communication skills.
ELC star quality:
We love the Marble Madness Game because it offers such a fantastic range of fun play for your child. Working out what makes a good run, putting the pieces together, and using trial and error to work out what kind of design works well is so satisfying! Creating different marble runs is a really rewarding play for your child. And while they're enjoying themselves, your child is learning lots about how objects behave too.

Let's build a marble run
We can choose slides, a loop the loop, a cascade, revolving spinners and lots of tubes to make our own mad marble run. Let's put a marble in a starting grid and watch it race through the maze.
Making our run better and better
Let's test-drive our run, and weed out any dead-ends. We can redesign and refine our masterpiece, and emerge as the marble maestro. Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you the crazy cascade: just watch this everyone.
Can we create a mega run featuring every single piece? It's a challenge, but we're up to the job. Let's get building, get those marbles on their starting grids, and go go go.
Playing together – we can each make a run with half the pieces
Playing by yourself on a rainy day – you won't notice the weather
Using props to give more height, e.g. the box, a play table, or Mum's foot (only joking)
Making a massive multi run, with lots of starts and finishes
Turning the cat cross-eyed – Tigger stop staring or you'll get a headache
Hours of fiddling and redesigning, to become a serious marble pro
How slow can you go – make a run for a marble that takes its time
Synchronised starts: start off all the runs at the same time
Asserting your rights: it's true Dad, marbles were never this fun in your day. But can we have it back now?
Manic marble relays: as soon as a marble finishes, let's put it straight back to the top.
