New Hands-On Model Kits Introduce Children to Engineering Principles and Physics Concepts
BELOIT, Wis. (July 15, 2018) — PlayMonster LLC is introducing its first expansion of the Marbleocity® line, which will feature smaller marble machines at a new entry-level price!
Marbleocity is a line of laser-cut wooden STEM kits, and the intricate and beautiful designs of each module fit together to form a weaving and winding marble machine. Marbleocity was designed to be a satisfying building experience, and the included graphic novel teaches each kit’s STEM lesson through a cast of characters called the Tinkineers, who help children and parents understand the concepts and feel connected to the lessons.
New for 2018 will be the Triple Play™ series featuring smaller models that will attract new builders (Tinkineers) with a lower price point and satisfy existing fans with new models to build and collect! Along with a slightly smaller size, Triple Play’s also feature added plastic components that give the wood model a pop of color! The first two models in the series, Chaos and Archimedes Screw, feature fun elements like a helix and funnel. Like all other Marbleocity kits, Triple Play models also include a full color comic story, to teach important STEM lessons and relate physics and engineering principles to real life.
Chaos Mountain and Archimedes Screw can be easily connected so marbles run through both models, and motors can also be attached for power (motors sold separately). The new Triple Play sets will be available in summer of 2018 and retail for $24.99 each. For ages 9 and up.
