Design & Construct Games, Marble Run

We have had a couple of Marble Run days and I thought I'd share some pictures.  
This is a design and construct set that requires strategy and planning to create structures for building.

This was a fun day experimenting with new designs. We had lots of casual chatting about structural stability and support planning. Lot's of trial and error. We tried to make the tallest design we could, and also the longest.  

So many possibilities...

  1. Hello! I just came across your site while searching for a marble run set that is more stable than what I can find at the toy stores. Do you mind sharing where you found yours or who makes it? Thanks very much!

    1. You know Caryn...ours is a bit wobbly too:) I think most are. We are trying to use that to our advantage in talking about building structures and creating proper supports and so forth. I can't remember the name of our but there are a few on amazon... Marble Run, Quercetti(I may try theirs) and International Playthings(looks good as well).
      Good luck!!!
