Quadrilla Wooden Marble Runs are Back

Quadrilla wooden marble runs are now back with Hape Toys.  Its been awhile since we’ve been able to get these items as they were being distributed by Manhattan Toys for a couple of years but their distribution agreement ended earlier this year and now they are back with Hape Toys for distribution.



Quadrilla represents the next generation of marble runs.  Beautiful wood tracks and a rainbow of colored blocks, each with a different function, are the starting point for endless contraptions for marbles to drop to a new level, go right or left, swirl in a funnel, or pour out of a teeter totter.

Quadrilla Marble Run’s versatile design allows a child to determine the path of play and the options are endless.  Simple 2 or 3 level switches or complex multi-level, multi-direction layouts are possible depending on the builder’s understanding of the function of each piece and their developmental stage.  It is a logical, sturdy, stable product where the process of building is as much fun as the process of playing.  Choose from an assortment of award-winning sets and add-on accessories.
