Grimm's Assembly Ball Run
Children may build up this ball run by themselves (with a little help from mum and dad for the younger ones), sorting the colours as their discretion. Resulting in a double spiral run, one can also have marble races: for example, you let run a wooden bead against the included bell. Who will be the winner? Which ball makes the least amount of sound running down the path? Which ball makes the most? The ball run can be dissembled and arranged in a different colour set-up, so the fun starts again. If you would like to extend the game, our Grimm's Wooden Marbles fit perfectly.
