Most children cringe when they hear the words "educational toy." There is a time for education and there is a time for play and the two shouldn't mix – just ask any child or any adult for that matter, since we were all children once! But there are times when an educational toy can be so much fun that its educational aspect gets completely overlooked and Gakken's New Block Rolling Q Standard Set is one such example: its perfect balance of education and fun earned it the Excellence Award in the Educational Toy category at the Japan Toy Awards 2023!
The New Block Rolling Q Standard Set is a large-scale marble run comprising 150 pieces: 132 blocks of 15 different types, 15 rails of five different types, and three balls. Like all toys of this genre, the simple yet winning idea is to build a path for the ball to travel from the beginning to the end. But unlike similar toys, the combinations here are practically endless, allowing your children to truly flex their imagination and knowledge of physics – which is where the educational part of the toy kicks in!
