VertiPlay STEM Marble Run

How about something fun this Christmas? Like super fun.. oh and STEM TOO!

70 years ago, when Lego introduced the world’s first interlocking bricks system of play, it triggered the imagination and attention of kids all around the world. An expandable, versatile and intuitive way to play that honed mental and motor skills. Surprisingly, there has never been anything like it after that.

Which is why Oribel is so excited to introduce the VertiPlay STEM Marble Run! A first-of-its kind modular wall toy that is distinct, challenging and extra-fun. The silicone base mats stick easily to walls and vertical surfaces (no floor clutter!) in a honeycomb structure. The goal is to then arrange the various play pieces (straight ramps, curvy ramps, see-saws, and windmills) on the base so that they carry the marble (a wooden ball) down to the desired point.

With these different parts, your child can create an endless number of routes for the marble, adjusting and extending them to change the marble’s speed and efficiency. The idea is to figure out how to place the ramps on a suitable hook, angle the pieces and extend them to give the marble the right velocity, trajectory, and direction to guide it to its goal. The possibilities and challenges are endless.

Oribel’s VertiPlay Marble Run is available for purchase on loveoribel.com and on Amazon. It is recommended for children 5 – 99! Haha love the 99..

Playtime2Bedtime is a line of children’s blankets and duvet covers that function as a play area for kids and their different toy brands. For example, there is a shopping mall for fashion dolls like Barbie, a race track for toy cars like Hot Wheels and Matchbox, a wrestling arena for WWE toys, and a city under attack for super hero toys to save as well as a few others that are currently available and even more that are in the design phase and coming soon.
