Quadrilla Marble Runs Brilliant marble runs with a incredible range of pieces that do all sorts of crazy things.  Musical, spinning, boosting.  Loads of fun for children and challenging too.  Quadrilla marble runs differ from most other brands in that they remain stable once built due to the slotting design of the pieces.   Choose from a range of designs to suit your budget.  Our kids love playing with their marble runs, we’ve had many years use out of them.  We love the freedom and creative that marble runs allow.

Hape wooden toys for under 3s 

Pound & Tap Bench A pounding toy and a xylophone in one, such a great idea.  Babies just love to hammer things and when they succeed in hammering the balls through the holes they are rewarded with some musical magic as the ball rolls over the xylophone notes. The xylophone can later be removed and played on it’s own.  There’s a fab range of musical toys from Hape including this Little Drummer, check out our complete range of wooden musical toys here.

Pull Along Snail This clever shape sorter is also a fun pull along toy with a rotating shell.  Take the shell off and use babies can enjoy playing with it as a shape sorter.  Put the shell back on and it turns around when pulled making the shapes inside clatter about. Bright and colourful with a cherry face, this snail is sure to become a favourite.   Check out our entire push and pull range of toys here
