Galt Toys Marble Run Review

Who doesn't LOVE Galt Toys? They truly are fab! We've been a fan of Galt Toys for - well since forever pretty much.


My boys got to choose something each from their awesome collection so we could do some reviews for them. Jack chose Marble Run and opted for the 30 piece set. I remember playing with this as a kid, my Hubby still has his! And Jack has played Marble Run at school.

Marble Run is a CLASSIC! 


Galt Toys focus on Educational Toys and at first I thought "is Marble Run really all that educational?" But it is! You need to put some thought into those towers.... build it wrong and your marbles DON'T RUN! Do it right and you have hours of fun making complicated tracks, racing marbles to the bottom, and working out what does and doesn't work.  It's great for problem solving, as well working those creative ideas. Certainly in our house it's one of those toys that encourages cooperation too when Jack and Tom want to play with it together because they always have very different ideas of how to build! Which ideas will work? Can they work both ideas into the same run? Will they need to take turns?

A huge advantage to Marble Run is that it is expandable.... the 30 piece set we have here is a great starter set and includes 6 marbles. We're adding Hubby's set from his youth to make bigger and more complex runs. There are also the Super Marble Run and Mega Marble Run sets which add and extra dimension with roundabouts, pin-wheels, and more (which we will no doubt add to our collection soon with Christmas and Birthdays looming).

So how much are these Marble Run boxes? 

Surprisingly affordable! Our 30 piece set is just £10.99!

Marble Run: £10.99
Super Marble Run: £19.99
Mega Marble Run: £29.99

Where can I buy them?

 Most good toy retailers will stock this classic game, but why not make life easy as visit their website:  www.galttoys.com and see what Christmas Offers they have (like free P&P with the promotional code available on the site, and Christmas Delivery on orders before midday Dec 20th - UK only)




We have been asked to play with and review some games and toys from Galt Toys. We have not been paid to do these reviews, all opinions expressed are our own. We did get to keep the products.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
