Bamboo marble run

Sorry for the usual dreadful photos (yes, yes, I was using my mobile camera again!) but how cute is this marble run. It's made by Hape from bamboo, I just love it. The girls and I spent ages today trying different configurations and watching the balls rocket down the runways. The pieces balance together so after a few knock down rebuilds we had to keep a close eye on Squeak (well, namely her hands :-D) but it was a great way to spend an hour. Im thinking of building one of our own that is a little bit more Squeak friendly, maybe using cardboard tubing or even poly pipe if I get even more adventurous. Will have to add it to the list and hope we get around to it before the kids lose interest in marbles :-)
