Countdown To Christmas: Cugolino

This is another unique toy from Oh! Toys.  I think my husband was just as excited to play with this as Madison.  This too is for ages 3 and up.  However, this does come with marbles, so if you have kids younger than three, you need to be very careful (the rule here is that Madison can't play with this unless Will is napping).

Again, this is another toy that I like, because it makes my kids think. It requires them to think and do problem solving using creativity.  There are no bells and whistles; yet, Madison played with this for a good two hours the first day we took it out of the box.  Basically, what you do is make a track for the marble to work its way down. Right now, Madison is making pretty basic tracks with it. However, daddy did help her make a more intricate system like this one:

Also, clean up is awesome.  All of these pieces fit nicely into a bag that comes with it!  You don't have to worry about how you are going to get all the pieces back in perfectly so you can close the box.  I also love that this is a toy that Madison can grow into.  Right now, she is only making very basic designs.  However, as she gets older, I know her designs will get more intricate.  This will also make it through the wear and tear of several children too.  It is made with good quality materials.  TheCugolino set contains 37 pieces and is 100% compatible with cuboro's classic system.

  1. Wow my kids could play with that thing for hours. Anything with marbles will keep them busy for days on end. Good find.

  2. I really like the Atomium Magnetics – Medium Building Set. My grandson just loves this kind of stuff. Thank you so much!

  3. I would buy the BoyonGolo Marble Run! I remember my daughters playing with something like this when they were younger and I think my little grandson Jack Henry would enjoy it when he gets older and the cats that live with him would love to chase the marbles!

  4. I would use it for the Atomium Magnetics medium building set. I have a small box of magnets for my kids to play with, but I need more.

  5. Probably let my nephew pic out a gift on here for his little brother….I think this would be great for a Christmas present!!

    thanks 🙂

  6. I would love to get my daughter a garden set. She turned 4 yesterday and I wasn't able to get her anything because of financial reasons 😥 I love her sooo much and she deserves it.

  7. I love that these toys still exist, I used to have a similar one 30yrs ago! They are really good for the brains of little people, to understand how things go together, or don't, and even spatial awareness. Love them
