Chicago – Today VTech announced the availability of new additions to its popular STEM-based Marble Rush™ line, including the Marble Rush Corkscrew Rush Set™ and Marble Rush Raceway Set. Offering children non-stop fun while stimulating creativity and imagination, the introductory line launched last year and received the esteemed STEAM Toy Accreditation Seal of Approval.
"Marble Rush is a great line of STEM toys, which introduces important early physics concepts in a really fun way," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America.
Marble Rush lets kids build thrilling courses, send marbles into motion and compete with family and friends in exciting challenges with sounds and lights. Each Marble Rush set contains color-coded blocks and easy-to-follow building instructions for kids to create a variety of courses from beginner to advanced levels or create their own with endless possibilities. The Marble Rush Corkscrew Rush Set is a 112-piece building set with an electronic corkscrew tumbler that plays an exhilarating musical light show when a marble passes through. With the Marble Rush Raceway Set, the starting gate activates a musical light show as the marbles race down the ramps and through obstacles. These new sets can also be combined with other Marble Rush sets (sold separately) to create an extreme playset for non-stop fun.
