  • Special effect balls that sparkle, jingle and rattle down the track
  • A complete track can be built quickly and easily

Haba my first ball track features

From a very young age toddlers can build their very own marble run and enjoy rolling the balls down the track.  It’s great fun to do and there’s loads of benefits to early years development as well.  At first they’ll need a bit of help from mum or dad but when you’re so little you still measure your age in months and you can complete your very first track the sense of achievement is pretty epic and they’ll be rolling balls down it for the rest of the day.   Motor skills, problem solving, patience, hand eye co-ordination it’s all in there and it’s all part of the fun.

Haba My First Ball Track comes in a variety of sets that each have their own special features
