It allows the user to create an intinite variety of paths on a magnetic surface. The marble traverses between the wall and the edges of the single pieces. While the toy is not in use, it cleverly forms a rectangular shape that can act as abstract wall art or beautiful and simple decor. plama may help to develop creativity and logical thinking. It can increase the understanding of two dimensional space and proportion. Using the outline of the shapes to build a well-functioning marble run is an easy way to focus on complex thinking.
