Cardboard engineering at it's finest! This completely glueless Magnificent Marble Machine is a Victorian styled automaton – a moving machine – and a marble run, all in one! Push out the pieces from the frame and slot them together by following the included instructional poster. Once assembled, turn the handle to watch the marbles roll down the ramp and then ‘magically’ make their way back up again.The marble machine is made entirely from cardboard, so all the waste is completely compostable or recyclable. A great family project! Includes 80 parts made from thin cardboard and card stock paper. No glue required.

Cardboard engineering at its finest!  The completely glueless Magnificent Marble Machine is a Victorian styled automaton – a moving machine and marble run all-in-one, with exposed simple machines, utilizing an impressive array of mechanical principles.  The Marble Machine is a marvel to behold, a vibrant hodgepodge of a psychedelic assembly, all styled after an instantly-recognizeable turn-of-the-century steampunk aesthetic that celebrates the magic of early complex machinery. The kit comes packaged in a box with everything needed to get it working. Push the pieces out of the frame and slot them together by following the instructional poster. No glue needed! Once assembled, turn the handle to watch the marbles roll down the ramp and then ‘magically’ make their way back up again

The kit is made entirely from cardboard and cardstock paper, so all the waste is completely compostable and/or recyclable - this marble run is truly a green machine!

The Magnificent Marble Machine is suitable for adults and children alike, although it can be described more as an interactive ornament and construction experience than a strict toy. The marble machine will delight all ages, but is best suited for mechanics over the age of eight. Younger children will love it, but they may find it challenging to assemble without the help of a more experienced engineer, making it a fabulous project for the family.

Features:

  • Assemble a curious cardboard device, the magnificent marble machine!
  • Easy assembly with cardboard cutouts and directional poster
  • Turn the hand crank and watch the marbles roll down the ramp and then ‘magically’ make their way back up again
  • Exposed interior with simple machines demonstrate mechanical fundamentals
  • Styled after the optimistic mechanized wonderment of turn-of-the-century machines with a little steampunk thrown in!
