If you have ever watched a domino maze spread chaos through the design, you will know just how fascinating they are.
Now you can create your own versions and perform tricks with the Zig and Go range from Djeco.
There are a number of different sets to choose from – this one has 28 pieces and features a ramp with a moving circle, a ball roller, and a flag that will pop up when you reach the end of the maze. There are so many different ways of combining these pieces to make actions and reactions. You can also combine this set with any others in the range to make your own combinations, or add in other dominoes and materials of your own. There are endless possibilities and lots of inspiration from the professional videos out there.
We love the quality of the materials here – wood and MDF have been carefully shaped and designed so that the flow of the materials can be controlled by children to make their own designs. They also give you lots of help to set up your first runs and see just how the components work. Master the tricks and then invent your own.
