We’re huge fans of wooden marble runs and ball tracks here at Babipur, so we were really excited to film our very own unboxing video and to build and play with the Grimm’s Ball Run.
A video of our Grimm’s ball run un-boxing
As you can see from the video, the Grimm’s Ball Run Assembly Track really is a wonderful toy. Building the ball run involves attaching colourful dowels and panels together and then slotting each piece onto a rod to create a colourful staircase for the balls to role down. We enjoyed building the marble run as much as we enjoyed playing with it. Assembling the marble run is a great way to encourage children to use their concentration and patience skills with their perseaverence being rewarded at the end. We decided to match the colour of the dowels with the panels and to group the cololurs together for a rainbow effect, but it would look just as impressive all jumbled up. The set contains four bells instead of marbles which make a lovely chiming sound as they spiral down before collecting in the wooden plate at the base. Of course, there is no reason why you can’t use different coloured marbles instead of the bells and children will enjoy racing different beads and marbles and guessing which ones will get to the bottom the fastest!
We sell a huge range of Grimm’s wooden toys at Babipur. Each one is made in Europe from alder, lime, beech and maple wood that has been sourced from sustainably managed European forests. Grimm’s toys are made by skilled craftspeople in handpicked workshops across Europe before being painted and dyed with beautiful natural and rich colours by the Grimm’s team in Germany. All of the paints and natural oils used to finish the toys are harmless and enhance the natural beauty of the wood, the toys aren’t finished with laquers so the beautiful grain and natural markings of the wood are visable.
This beautiful toy and many others can be purchased online at babipur.co.uk.
