AD| For the purpose of this review we were sent 1 x Hape Marble Run. All thoughts in this post are my own honest opinions.
Keeping the kids entertained in the 6 weeks summer holidays is never easy or cheap. If we get a sunny day we can easily entertain our little ones at the park, or a bike ride. When it is raining though they easily get bored staying indoors. We would take them to soft play or over a freinds but you can only do this so often.
Having a collection of fun, entertaining and different toys can really make a difference. We have a storage unit in our living room with all of their toys in but I like to keep some put away so they can play with them on those rainy days.
The toys I like to keep to one side are usually ones that hold their attention and gets them doing things.
When Hape offered us the Quadrilla Wooden Musical Motion Marble Run, I knew this would be one of those toys that would easily keep them entertained.
Hape Quadrilla Musical Marble Run
The Hape Quadrilla Marble Run is a high quality wooden toy. It provides quality time for the whole family. Inspired by Da Vinci, a German engineer invented Quadrilla as Christmas gifts for his children. It provides endless creative building possibilities and encourages spatial thinking and problem solving.
Each of the 7 different colour blocks has a different colour blocks has a different function and its the worlds only kinetci marble run. it has won “Speil Gut” (Good Toy) Award and Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award. All Quadrilla marble run sets are crafted with heriloom quality birch and rubber wood for long-lasting marble racing fun.

This set includes 77 pieces plus 20 marbles; inlcluding rails and chimes for musical motion. By strategically placed chimes Quadrilla adds a musical element to the marble run. Music motion includes little xylophone keys built into different building pieces, so marble run building can get even more creative.
Quadrilla’s Music Motion can be combined with other Quadrilla marble run sets to extend the fun.
The set includes instructions which are pretty easy to follow. You can also use the picture on the box as a guide as well. The instructions show you how to set up one style in which I did have extra pieces left over.
It would have been good if the instructions also showed how to set up other versions too but a quick google and I found instructions to set up other styles.
The Hape Quadrilla Musical Motion Marble Run really is great fun for those aged 4 – 99! Easy to set up different styles for continuous fun. Shows cause and effect. This set allows educational fun and creativity as well as logical thinking.
I love the muscial element to the marble run it really does encourage interaction and adds greatly to the overall fun. As you can see from the video below the Marble run is a great hit with y children.
I would recommend the Hape set to anyone, it would make a fantastic gift for any occassion.
