What our experts think
The Marble Rush Discovery Starter Set allows children to experiment creatively with a moving construction which helps to develop their logical thinking and problem-solving skills.
With adult support to follow the diagram steps, children gathered each piece required. As well as helping them to understand steps in a logical sequence, completing the build also helps with developing visual processing skills. This is an important part of learning in construction play because it allows children to develop a visual understanding of how to manipulate, direct and attach pieces successfully. As they played more with the set, children were able to engage in the build more independently.
Once the structure was constructed, children also enjoyed engaging in pretend play with the marbles, which encouraged storytelling and communication. For slightly older children, this also got them experimenting with building courses of their own design.
