::: musical marble run

This irresistible looking tower is called a rainbow cascade marble run.

The wooden petals make the most wonderful calming, musical sound …

as the marbles roll around and down the petals.

The children soon learned that two or three rolling marbles is even better than one!Β You can view a short video of theΒ rainbow cascade marble runΒ here and listen to the sound it makes.


Here is a link to purchase it in Australia

Here’s a link to purchase it in the United Kingdom

    I have one. I bought it at least three years ago through one of the EC catalogues here in the USA. The first time I took it out to try it myself, teachers from other rooms had to come to see what was making that beautiful sound.

    ::: We’re not surprised they came running Tom … It really is a beautiful sound. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    I have one that I got a few years back from an early childhood catalog in the United States. In this catalog it was called a singing tree. I teach special needs preschool and my kiddos love it!

    We’ve got those, a big one and a smaller version, at home. And all four of our kids (3 to 12 years old) love them. They are great!
