At what age can my child play with the Marble Run?
We designed this game to be suitable from the age of 5 to….99!

What is the Marble Run made of?

Will the Marble Run damage my walls?
We promise it won’t! We conduct lots of tests to make sure the entire VertiPlay range of toys stick on your walls without any damage at all. Remember to peel off the adhesive film gently, and don’t yank the toy off the wall when you need to remove it. Feel free to write to us for any help!
Will it stick on all surfaces?
We find that the VertiPlay toys stick best on flat surfaces. On textured or uneven surfaces, the toys may slip as the adhesion is not as strong.
Does the wall paint make a difference to how well it sticks?
Yes, it is best to avoid walls with poor quality paint or multiple coats of paint as the toy will not stick as well.
Can I remove the Marble Run from the wall and paste it again?
Yes! We’ve designed it so that you can remove and stick it back 3 to 4 times without affecting the sticking ability.
Can I buy just the film?
Unfortunately not. The film and the silicone mat toy are designed and sold as one unit.
