Galt Toys Launches Mega Marble Run
Galt Toys has launched Mega Marble Run, a 100 piece construction set with paddle wheels, whirlpools, wiggly raceways and 180 degree turns.
With the colourful slot-together plastic pieces, children will be able to create simple runs, or complex structures, to watch the 20 marbles whiz down the tubes and around the vortexes. Children can experiment with different configurations of height and length to achieve the quickest, most exciting runs.
Mega Marble Run is great for group activity, teaching children team work and communication as they create their own marble rollercoaster. This clever construction set will also provide a basic introduction to math, science and physics skills - perfect for cognitive development.
John McDonnell, Managing Director at Galt Toys comments: “The plastic pieces fit together easily offering endless possibilities. Children of all ages will enjoy building the different mazes, but be warned, it’s not just the children who love these construction sets, the whole family will be crowding round to race the marbles.”
Suitable for children aged four to eight years, the 100 piece set retails at £29.99 and is available from http://www.galttoys.com
