Evie turned 8 yesterday, on a cold wintery day, good for being inside. They day she was born there was a frost- I remember because the back deck was slippery on our way out to the hospital.
A musical marble run will be the highlight of the school holidays I think, it has little xylophone segments that can be slotted in in various combinations. They play a note as the marble runs over them.
It can go together with her basic Quadrilla set, to make a bigger one. There are endless possibilities with this game, and it should keep them entertained for years to come. Happy birthday Evie!
