Hape Quadrilla

Exhibit

"Hape is a world-wide leader in designing and manufacturing high quality baby and children's products made from sustainable materials. The eco-friendly company was established in 1986 in Germany by founder and CEO Peter Handstein. Handstein has a knack for toy design. He uncovered and eventually bought Quadrilla, the ""smarty pants"" and Oppenheim Platinum Award winner of wooden marble runs.

Quadrilla is not a one-time build-and-play toy. It's a system of multi-colored blocks u2013 each with its own function u2013 that can be combined with short or long, curved or straight rails that children use to build a "contraption of sorts". The completed structure is a working marble run and the builder is in charge of its design. Quadrilla is the "smarty pants" of marble run systems on the market today. It operates on kinetic, rather than gravitational, energy.

Eager to build and play with Quadrilla and break away from designing, Wilfried Braun, Quadrilla inventory, jumped at the chance to demonstrate how it works at the Hape Quadrilla booth during the World Maker Faire. "
