The Matthias Utinger Marble Tree is an enchanting eco-friendly educational wonder. It comes with six marbles which make deeper and deeper notes as they plink-plonk down the tree’s tuned wooden leaves…before plopping into the base.
The Marble Tree is a longtime favourite of the Waldorf and Montessori school systems and was inspired by their principles of constructive play. It’s ethically made, environmentally sound, and non-toxic.
Matthias Utinger is an award winning Swiss designer of educational toys. His glorious invention was nearly lost to us when the original manufacturer went into bankruptcy in 2006. It’s now produced by a family company specializing in quality wooden toys.
German Design Prize Winner, 2000
Hand made in Poland
Suitable for all people over 3 years of age (remember there are marbles involved)
* there’s also a smaller 37cm Marble Tree in production, but The Good Store doesn’t stock it because the marbles are prone to bouncing out of the base.
