The Beck Roller Cups with Faces is a delightful piece to introduce the concept of “marble runs” to your children as it is easy to operate and engaging to watch. As the glass marbles independently move from cup to cup and make a resounding clickety clack each time they drop, each face seems to not only light up with excitement but also grin with happiness from all the fun. The easy way the marbles travel down the path demonstrates not only great design but also excellent craftsmanship. A fun way to stimulate their minds and fine motor skills.

Beck Wooden Toys was founded by Christof Beck in 1946. Due to not being able to find a job in his normal occupation as a mechanic after the war, he started creating and selling children’s toys. Christof invented and created many traditional toys, eg wooden doll’s houses, grocery stores as well as wooden car parks and traffic signs to support children in their world of play.
While this family run business is now its 3rd generation, the philosophy and ethics that Christof Beck set in place when he started his business haven’t changed. Beck Wooden Toys still focuses on long-lasting, high quality children’s toys that foster imagination and creativity and are sustainably made and safe for children of all ages.
Beck Wooden Toys predominantly uses native timber from beech, maple and oak trees grown near their workshop in the Swabian Alps in Germany. All varnishes, stains, paints and finishes are lightfast, non-toxic as well as water- and saliva-resistant and are in accordance with European safety standards DIN EN 71, making all of Beck’s wooden toys safe to be played with.
More than 90% of Beck’s wooden toys have been awarded the prestigious “spiel gut” award showing the high quality, craftsmanship and sophistication of their large range of children’s toys.
