Hape will begin the first shipment of Quadrilla in August. The marble run design is both owned and manufactured by the company. Quadrilla is made of rubber wood blocks, birch rails, and wood funnels. The product debuted at the American International Toy Fair in New York and is available in more than 50 countries. Hape acquired the Quadrilla brand and patents for design, and the product is available in the Basic Set, Twist Set, Rail Set, and the Twist & Rail Set.
Manhattan Toy has finalized a worldwide licensing and distribution agreement with Quadrilla Spielzeug Design und Herstellung, creators of “Intelligent Play in Wood,” to manufacture and distribute Quadrilla’s complete range of Marble Runs and accessories starting in 2010.
Manhattan Toy will preview the collection at the Toy Fairs in New York and Nuremburg this month.
