Hours upon hours of fun are to be had with Hape’s Quadrilla range. Entertain The Kids have been asked to trial and review The Cyclone with just one problem, we couldn’t wait for the kids to arrive. Too many hands… too many chiefs… lots of laughs.. but what a Team Building Session we had “TEAMWORK” was needed.
We then let a handful of 7-8yr olds loose with The Cyclone and after scrabbling around “doing their own thing” they soon started to work together to build the image on the box. It wasn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination but it worked to the “ooo’s and aaahhh’s” as the marbles rolled around, some of them falling off the construction but a knock too far and the whole construction fell to the ground which gave the adults chance to play once more.
The construction is wooden with bright primary colours, 198 pieces in total. Fantastic quality providing hours of fun and frustration for all.
