Marbles. Once the preserve of schoolkids in the 1950s, now the miniature moving parts of all manner of elaborate constructable contraptions.
Like Marble Racer by Galt Toys – billed as the worlds fastest marble game ever and an “exciting construction game in which up to four players can build a high speed marble race track and compete against each other to reach the finish line.”
Once players have made the track, each puts their marble in the starter gate and with a quick twist and they’re off. Players track their marbles as they whizz down tubes, chutes and through wheels. The marbles enter the three racing vortex, in which marbles are able to overtake on their way to the finish line.
The box contains a starter top, a starter base, finish, 3 racing vortex, wiggly bell chute, staircase, curved chute with horizontal wheel, vertical wheel chute, paddle wheel, ‘S’ shaped chute, 4 straight chutes, 37 tubes, 4 bases and 20 solid colour racing marbles.
It also includes a winners podium so kids can be recognised for their marble racing achievements.
