Our latest fascination…

This perpetual marble run has been stealing the show this month in Brighton. About 2 hours of building gets everything ready and there is no glue required atall! The motor is part of the kit – just wire it up and watch as the marbles continuously move around the maze. Mesmerising! £29.99
