As a mommy of 2 little boys, it is important for me to know what my kids likes and wants, in order to keep them from getting bored. As you all know, boys get bored easily, so I need to be equip at all time to entertain, especially during Winter Season where they stay indoor most of the time.
But last week, my kids caught a virus and was sick for a couple of days. My 2nd grader missed school for 2 days, so he was home resting. On the second day of being sick, he started to complain a little bit for nothing much to do in the house. Good thing, Mister Mail-Man knocked on our door early morning, and left a package for my 2 boys. They were so eager to open it especially when I told them that it’s a surprised for them for being good all the time. Both boys were so happy when they saw their surprised. It’s a Quercetti Marble Run Vortis Building Toy from Educational Toys Planet.com. Photo below shows how excited they were when they opened it. These boys knows the drill, that they need to pose for Mama for a photo.
Photo above shows what is inside the box.
It came with 80 beautiful colorful made of plastic pieces, that your kids will surely love to build together. It’s not hard to build, because it came with an instruction booklet with pretty graphics that show how to build it which I find so easy to follow. I help my kids put it together, by telling them which piece should go on this piece. Basically, they did all the work.
It also came with blue, red, yellow and white marbles that you will used to roll down from the top. Regular marbles wont fit in some of the passages in this toy, only the marbles that came with it which is a bit smaller than the regular ones.
Photo below shows the toy all together. Isn’t this cool? Oh, I sure love the idea of kids having fun playing, at the same time learning! I find this toy educational, because it helps enhance their motor skills, construction skills, coordination, problem solving, and even experience an introduction to science principles like gravity and speed. Isn’t that great!
I thank Educational Toys Planet for giving my kids the opportunity to try one of their toys. As you can see on the photos, they really enjoyed playing it. Putting it away was easy, and putting it together again was much more fun! This toy is just a beginner, but if you look at the Educational Toys Planet website, you will find more Marble Run Sets that will fit for your little ones age. Go check them out now!
