Product Description

Product Description

A wonderful 99-piece starter set for a youngster who is grown beyond just blocks and likes ading tricks and surprises to his designs. This set includes curved wood tracks, a funnel and an assortment of blocks.

From the Manufacturer

Quadrilla Basic Set is a great introduction to the Quadrilla system. Quadrilla is the next generation of marble runs. It is a system of blocks, tracks and accessory pieces that allow the energy of a marble to travel down a make-your-own path. Beautiful wood tracks and a rainbow of colored blocks, each with a different function, are the starting point for endless constructions for marbles to drop to a new level, go right or left, swirl in a funnel, or pour out of a teeter totter. Quadrilla's versatile design allows a child to determine the marble's path 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. this is a logical, sturdy product where the process of building is as much fun as the process of playing.

This toy is one of the best things we've gotten for our kids in a long time. It is made of solid wood pieces which can be fit together in different patterns, allowing marbles to roll down the track and through tunnels. It sounds very simplistic, but this is its charm! Our six year old son played with it for two days straight when he got it for Christmas, and soon his two older sisters were helping think of new ways to configure the marble run. I was impressed because Quadrilla is very sturdy when it's assembled, which avoids the frustrations we sometimes see with racetracks or Lego buildings that fall apart. I give this set five stars in all areas because it teaches physics, develops imagination and fine motor skills, and teaches children that not all fun toys have a joy stick, batteries or flashing lights. We plan to add to our basic Quadrilla set in the future. We already bought extra marbles in various colors to make "teams."

Verified Purchase
I bought this set for my daughter's 4 years old birthday, she absolutely loves it, she can play it for half an hour or even longer, even my wife enjoyed playing this with us. And all the kids who come to play in my house also love it. I am planning to buy more expansion sets to make it more fun.

We love this after it is all set up. But, when my little boy (age 4) leans over to get another marble started or whatever, the whole structure falls down. It gets a little frustrating/ iritating. It the table MOVES, it's down.
We are thinking of glueing it all together. :)
It's OK-- I secretly wish I bought the $15 one at Target. It snaps together tight because it's made of plastic.
But, it is a cool toy and the marbles racing down the track and through the helix are just mezmerizing to all of us!

This is a great toy. My son got it for his 5th birthday, and was initially uninterested. His 7 year old sister started playing with it, and within days it was the most favored toy in the house. We got several of the add-on sets, and particularly the red teeter-totter along with the long rails (need these to make the teeter-totter work!) really add to the fun. I would highly recommend this as a great gift for any child between 4-7. It's also very durable and should last through several sets of kids.

Our family recently discovered the Quadrilla system and we love them.

The quality is excellent. The blocks are solid wood, but for strength the rails are a multi-layer plywood. Another thing we were impressed by is how interesting they are to build and play with, not only for the kids, but the grown ups as well. The running marbles are very fun, and the kids invariably end up hopping up and down with excitement.

One critique is that this basic set is really too small to stand on its own. There are only a couple configurations that you can make with this few pieces. While they are still pretty cool, I'd have to recommend the Quadrilla Marble Railway, Twist and Rail more. It has more pieces (including the teeter-totter!) and won't leave you wishing so desperately for more.

My 3-year old son plays with a plastic marble set at preschool, and that prompted me to find one for him to play with at home. I chose the Quadrilla despite the higher price because I thought the wooden construction would last longer and be virtually unbreakable. We have not been disappointed! It is one of very few toys that will hold his attention for any length of time. I have to build it for him, and it easily tips over if you bump it just slightly, but it is so worth it to see him and my 5-year old daughter drop the marbles in over and over and over again and just be absolutely delighted every time. I have to admit it is even lots of fun for me and my husband and our adult friends to build and play with along with the kids. We have already purchased the Quadrilla Rail Set, and plan to buy the Twist Set too. All sets come with instructions on how to build the railways, and after trying them all a few times, it's easier than I thought it would be to come up with my own construction ideas. I strongly recommend this product

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Brandi Downs on December 30, 2008
My kids (ages 2 to 5) all LOVE this toy. I like it because it's open-ended play and can be put into various configurations. It is a little delicate when it's set up. If the kids get a little rambunctious, the thing either comes tumbling down or gets thrown out of whack so that we have marbles going every which way. This hasn't happened often, though, and my 5-year-old son is already trying to plan new configurations and perusing extension sets.

My only real complaint with the Quadrilla is that I was under the impression that the set was completely constructed of wood. There are plastic rings and other bitty parts used among the wood, however, so be please be aware of this if you do not allow plastic into your home!

My very science minded five year old loves this toy! More than two weeks after Christmas he is still playing with it every day. In terms of manual dexterity he needs a little help from an adult to set up the tracks, but conceptually he is totally engaged, imagining and figuring out new systems to build. I was afraid that this set might be too basic/limited, but even within this set we have built exciting variations, although we are looking forward to getting some expansion packs now that we know the toy is a hit. (It's been a lot of fun for me too. The solid wood construction makes all the difference, avoiding the frustration of more cheaply made toys.)
