Product Story

With all the chaotic kinetic action worthy of its onomatopoeic name, this is the 6'-tall tower that enables a marble to course its way repeatedly through a labyrinth of contraptions. Winner of an Oppenheim Toy of the Year award, the kit provides young designers with hands-on lessons in physics with over 600 pieces that assemble into as many configurations a mind can envision. An AC-powered chain-drive lift at the tower’s bottom automatically elevates a marble to the starting point for a run. A marble progresses through a series of hairpin turns, sharp drops, and accelerating straightaways while caroming off rubber trampolines into baskets. A mechanical clapper strikes a bell to signal the quick descent toward a loop until the marble reaches the bottom to begin the journey again. A funneled tray, suspension bridge, and swing offer further challenge to help junior engineers place each obstacle at the precise angle to ensure a non-stop journey each run. Ages 8 and up. Deployed 72" H x 24" W x 12" D. (14 lbs.)
