cuboro marble track system grows with the player.

Starting from simple two-dimensional tracks up to highly complex three-dimensional mazes, cuboro marble tracks will fascinate children and adults for years.

cuboro is a marble track system consisting of 5 cm-cubed elements made of natural Swiss beech wood. cuboro elements feature different features on the surface as well as tunnel and acceleration functions

Seemingly endless possible tracks and limitless challenges

Playing with cuboro is a continuous process of building, testing and adjusting.

Small children from 5 years of age and up build simple tracks which run on the surface of the cubes. More complex track systems emerge through practice and conscious planning.

With increasing spatial ability the inner functions of the elements are discovered. The tracks become more and more interesting due to the combination of outer and inner functions.


 
 

Get building & rolling with the starter sets  

The starter sets contain the central elements. 

In the cuboro Standard set (54 blocks), 23 of the blocks are solid wooden blocks that serve as the foundation for the constructions. The remaining 31 provide an assortment of 12 different functions.

Each of the functional blocks provides part of a marble path - channels, tunnels, cross, drops and curves etc. 

More possibilities and challenging constructions can be achieved by expanding the collection with the supplementary sets and the sixpacks.

 

 

 
 

Designed for both flexibility and complexity

cuboro can be an open-ended, creative, scientific exploration without any need to build specific structures. It can also be played in a closed-ended puzzle-solving approach.

Contrary to most marble run toys having inclined tracks with marbles roll to a lower place naturally, cuboro is different - there are no inclination on the tracks. Marbles will loose momentum and stop on the track surface if they were made too long. The players have to think and plan carefully to keep marbles run until the end.

cugolino - the cuboro junior

For children from 3 years of age, you can purchase the cugolino - the cuboro ‘junior’.

cugolino offers the little children an exciting challenge for building and rolling with simple and obvious marble tracks. cugolino does not need a rulebook – simply unpack and get started.

cugolino is 100% compatible with cuboro and therefore the ideal entry into the fascinating world of cuboro... or an exciting extension to it. Younger kids can start with the basic cugolino kit and extend it with the supplementary kits for more creative fun.

Real Toys, Real Benefits

Cuboro presents a stimulating learning system which offers to both children and adults great challenges in the fields of spatial imagination and systematic thinking process. 

The player can improve cognitive abilities such as three dimensional  and combinatorial thinking and operational planning while at the same time improving concentration and memory.

This “toy”, originally designed  for children, has proved a “mind-challenger” which not only entertains but leaves a lasting effect in players of all ages.

 


Intellectual Development

Intellectual Development

Develops a child's mental abilities and intellectual processes, as well as extend their innate curiosity and intrinsic mental aptitude.

cuboro and cugolino marble track systems are designed to encourage cognitive development include: problem solving, science, matching and sorting activities, and fun experiments

 

Creative Development

Creative Development

Develops the abilities of child to express their creativity.

cuboro provides an open-ended play opportunities encourage your child’s creative development and allow for their own natural imaginations to run wild!

Motor Skill Development

Motor Skill Development

Assists a child's ‘head to toe’ development and includes both fine and gross motor skills.

Tasks such as stacking and playing with marbles all encourage the development of fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination skills. The development of these skills allows for greater hand strength and dexterity, as well as better coordination of hand movement.

Constructing cuboro or cugolino marble tracks encourages a child to move around and will enhance gross physical development.
 

Social and Emotional Developmen

Social and Emotional Development

Encourages a child to regulate their own emotions, develop resilience and confidence, build friendships and resolve social conflicts. Through team play and general play activities your child will be given the opportunity to learn to identify, control and express a wide range of positive and negative feelings.

cuboro & cugolino in a team play setting encourages social and development areas of children.

Communication Skill

Communication Skills

Develop a child's ability to communicate, either directly or via non-verbal methods, such as facial expressions and body language.

Team play with cuboro offers a child various opportunities to extend their language skills and non-verbal language skills, such skills are acquired through telling, explaining, listening and "negotiating".

Approaches Toward Learning

Approaches Toward Learning

Enables a child to be successful in school in many ways.

By understanding the various styles that involve children in learning and playing with cuboro, adults can encourage and increase a child's engagement. Curiosity, creativity, independence, cooperation, and persistence are some of the approaches that cuboro offers to enhance early learning and development.

cuboro-aus-FSC

Swiss Quality, Durability, Sustainability

The cubes are manufactured with only chemically untreated beech wood from local trees harvested from the region of Oberaargau/Emmental. The beech wood are certified by the FSC (Forrest Stewardship Council).

The untreated cubes are produced in a modern Swiss family joinery under the outmost eco-friendly manufacturing methods.
 


Quality

For over 20 year the processing has been in the hands of a highly specialised joinery, a family business, in Gondiswil, Switzerland.

The craftsmen transform quality wood into works of art. The blocks are precisely cut and sanded smooth. Taking the time to properly dry the wood results in cubes consistent in size and high in quality.

 

Durability

The cubes are manufactured with only chemically untreated beech wood. The high-quality processing of the untreated cubes guarantees durable playing pleasure with non-toxic wood.

Sustainability 

cuboro is exclusively manufactured with Swiss beech wood from the Emmental/Oberaargau region. Since 2006, our quality toys are solely manufactured with FSC accredited beech wood, meaning wood coming from exemplary cultivated forests.

The beech wood that the cuboro cubes are made from is harvested by the family in an ecologically sound manner.

The excess wood left by the manufacturing process is not discarded; rather it is burned in the kilns that methodically dry the blocks to ensure that they maintain their precise shape and character.

A Heirloom Toy

cuboro is a heirloom toy that can be passed down for generations as it is timeless and durable. It also grows with the child – from 4 years olds all the way up to adults, from simple tracks to complex track systems using the same set.

Not only cuboro grows according to the child’s standard, parents and grand parents also feel elated at this multi-generational toy. 

It is rewarding to watch and listen to the marble zip through the blocks. Every kid (and adult) loves the satisfying feeling when the marbles complete their creation successfully.

Great for both Solo and Collaborative Play 

A child (or adult for that matter) can have fun playing with the blocks on their own. 

Children with difficulties integrating into groups can be motivated to construct larger track systems together with others players.

They can also have fun collaborating with other children, their parents, and even their grandparents. It is a great way to develop teamwork and social skills.

 

From Special Education to Gifted Programs 

The inventor, Matthias Etter, envisioned cuboro when he was working with children with special needs (some with motor skill disabilities, some with injuries, some with autism).

Having seen the power of simple marble runs to extend the concentration and develop some critical skills and awareness, he created one of the finest, most open-ended wooden marble construction toy available.
