All of our marble rollers or as some call them marble runs are handmade in a nearby Amish shop in Indiana. They come natural or we can put a clear finish on them and they all come with a handmade bag of marbles except the wooden ball roller which comes with 12 balls.
From wooden puzzles toys evolved to something more elaborate during the Victorian era where grown women became obsessed over wooden doll houses that were made with marble and ivory and intricately detailed to resemble a real house and it even reached a point where it actually cost as much as a real house. Another kind of wooden toys that became popular especially during the Middle Ages were wooden puppets which ventriloquists would show off at street-side carnivals and the Lincoln Logs which were notched miniature logs that can be used to build miniature forts and buildings and are still around to this day. The Lincoln Logs were invented by John Lloyd Wright in 1916 and was patterned after the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo which was designed by his father architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
Another kind that many people havent seen is a marble tower. Its rectangular in shape and the marbles start at the top and go around and around the tower. Its a good way to see how fast one can move to get the marbles back to the top.
There are many different types of marble rollers available. Some are a single run and another kind is a double run marble roller. This is great for 2 people to have a contest to see who can get the marbles down the roller the quickest.
When you are looking at young child perhaps the first thing you think of are soft toys. While soft toys can be very comforting building toys can help a child develop considerably faster! Many say that regardless of sex small children instinctively gravitate towards toys that allow them to be builders and architects. One way to foster this is by purchasing a set of small wooden blocks and planks that are sized to a childs hands. These toys while simple give a child a sense of control over his or her environment and can help them learn more about it as well.
