From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

When we were testing an early prototype, one of our coworkers said it looked like a cute robot spitting out dominoes. So they drew a face on it. From then on, the domino machine had a face!

By the numbers

Domino runs set up for testing: 460

Gears prototyped: 8

Most dominos toppled in a single run: 150!

We purchased a 6 month subscription to Kiwi Co and this Domino Machine was the first kit that arrived. Our girls ages 9 to 14 had a great time taking turns putting it together. They did require some assistance from their Daddy who happens to be an engineer to help glue the rubberbands on to the wheels so the domino machine would operate smoothly and go straight. After that slight modification it has been an incredibly engaging toy that captivates the whole family including Dad, Mom, and our 2 year old. We enjoy getting this out a few times a week to play with it! Highly recommend!

The train is a marvellous gift! My Grandson is very interested in playing games on the computer but this broke right through and captured his interest!!

A great product we used (5) for adult team building. Good quality and complicated enough to create a few laughs but no punch ups!
