Looking for a unique gift for home or office? Presenting the Ugears Marble Run Chain Hoist—an exciting combination of art and engineering. The Marble Run Chain Hoist is both a beautiful kinetic sculpture and an intricate toy that teaches as it entertains. This DIY wooden marble run features a chain hoist powered by a hand crank, and a series of tracks, each with its own unique and fun obstacle or element. Turn the handle clockwise to set the machine in motion, and watch as the wooden chain hoist collects and lifts the marbles to the top of the machine, where a 3-way switch distributes them on different tracks. One marble plunges down a chute with a loop-the-loop at the bottom; the next tumbles down the various stages of the cascades, while three others are collected in the accumulator then released down one of three short tracks. All marbles pass through the common tray or collector before returning to the chain hoist to be lifted on their next journey.

The Marble Run Chain Hoist is an engaging way to relax your mind before going back to the task at hand, whether that's tidying your desk, sending out an email, or getting ready for your next zoom call. Everyone enjoys watching marbles pass through an intricate machine—it's just part of human nature! Perhaps there are some children in your life who would be delighted to help build this model and watch the marbles loop-the-loop, trickle down a counterweighted cascade, or take any of several other paths as they work their way to the bottom. The Marble Run Chain Hoist is a fun, unique gift idea for just about anyone in your life—for birthdays, holidays, any occasion or no occasion. Let the good times roll!

You and your family will have hours of fun constructing this DIY kit together, without need of glue or special tools. Just snap the wooden pieces out of their laser pre-cut boards, then snap them together and watch your marble run take shape. Our high-quality precision laser-cut pieces are made from natural wood composites, have a wonderful smell, and fit together snugly.

The Marble Run Chain Hoist is modular, and can be connected to other Marble Run Chain Hoists (2 or 4 models can be connected, in pairs) using special connectors (included). Attach two Marble Run Chain Hoists together frontally, or connect four together, both frontally and laterally, for a mini system of hoists and runs. 

The fun doesn't stop with the build. With static models the completed model often gets put on a high shelf collecting dust. Not so with Ugears! Once you finish building this DIY marble run the fun is just beginning! Watch the wooden puzzle come to life as you crank the hoist to send the marbles on their adventures. For anyone looking for a toy that will give more than 5 minutes of fun, a marble run is certain to capture the attention of any child (or adult!).
