KADEN Wooden Marble Runs

Lovingly handmade in the Ore Mountains in Germany, award-winning KADEN Marble Runs impress with their simple modular design, variety of available components and quality workmanship. 

KADEN was founded in 1994 by father and son team, Professor Gerd Kaden and Matthias Kaden. A passion for toys and wooden design led them to produce their very own specialised wooden building blocks with built-in ball tracks.

Each individually shaped block is perfectly designed to connect with every other block in a set to create endless marble run combinations consisting of horizontal paths, curves, bridge elements, labyrinths, stairs, funnels, and cascades. The many construction possibilities provide long-lasting fun and multiple educational benefits for children and adults alike.
