Fun Activities: Hape – Quadrilla – Music Motion – Marble Railway

It was G2’s birthday recently and we got him this from Happikiddo:

Hape Music Motion

Hape Music Motion is a marble run with a difference – it combines music with motion with strategically-placed musical chimes among the wooden rails and blocks. Designed for children aged 4 and up, you can make one of the many configurations shown in the instruction booklet or you can make your own. Hape Music Motion teaches children about spatial relationships, sound, and motion through simple, open-ended play.

Warning: Hape Music Motion contains traditional glass marbles and is not recommended for children 3 years and below.

Beautifully constructed from sustainable materials, Hape Toys are eco-friendly and created to meet and exceed the strictest international standards for quality and safety. Sustainability, education, innovation and fun – Hape Toys represents the next generation of play.

Aside from the xylophone keys, Hape Music Motion also contains some other features that can be seen in their video below:

So here’s G2 testing out his Music Motion construction…

Admittedly, I have a soft spot for wooden toys, but this simple idea is a really lovely toy.
