Totally addictive marble madness for your fridge!
Sorry, this product is not available.
If you're old enough to remember the classic game of Mousetrap you'll undoubtedly recall its crazily addictive, cartoon-esque maze of flumes, funnels, tunnels and troughs with great affection. Watching a marble meander through a series of improbable obstacles was strangely mesmerising. And it's just one of the reasons why we think Frigits Deluxe is going to be equally popular. This ingenious, fridge-based plaything has won every toy award going, and is as addictive as it is simple.
Essentially, Frigits Deluxe consists of several marbles and a series of colourful magnetic funnels, tunnels, catapults, spinners and sheer drops that stick to the side of your fridge.
The idea is to arrange the pieces into your own magnetic 'roller coaster' and watch as the marbles roll, drop, plop and spin down the fridge door until they land in a collection tray. Which, believe us, is infinitely more entertaining than arranging fridge poetry or dressing a magnetized version of Michelangelo's David in a pink tutu and cowboy hat.
Frigits Deluxe is also a brilliant office plaything, as its magnetized pieces will stick to any metal surface - perfect for filing cabinets and drinks machines.
Best of all, Frigits Deluxe can be arranged however you like, so you can have fun designing increasingly treacherous routes for your intrepid marbles. The permutations are endless and once you've adorned your fridge with Frigits we guarantee you'll find it impossible to walk past without having a quick go. Absolutely marbleous!

I really want one of these, as I love building things and marbles, but I have a fridge with a wooden door :( so it wouldn't stick, I tried to think of somewhere else I could stick it, but I dont have any big metal doors or anything, oh well you cant have everything.

Frigits is the ultimate diet contraption, since after you take it out the box and slap it to the door of your fridge, you'll never want to open the fridge again.
This is the perfect time waster when I'm waiting for toast or scrambled eggs in the morning.
The 'clickity-clack' of dropping marbles can be heard emminating from my kitchen at random intervals through-out the day. It's almost impossible to walk past it without having a go!

I remember seeing this in a shop for the first time. I was stunned at the simplicity of design even though it was amazingly fun. I stood for hours on end rearranging the orders and testing out my plans. In the end I did not want to leave. Now that I have finally come across it on firebox I just had to purchase it to re-live that moment!

Got this for my husband at Xmas and he played for hours - longest time so far, 28 seconds, (just a beginner). My Dad loves it too, as does my 3 year old godson. A massive hit!

Is a very cool idea. As someone else said - the ferris wheel does not work great. Also, if your fridge has a curved surface watch out! - the pieces are designed for flat doors so we have ours on the side :( Also, magnets could be a bit stronger - the marbles knock 'em out of place a little each time so need constant repositioning (poss a good point?) and even just fall off impromptu occasionally. Generally, kids *love* them and they are pretty funky.

Bought it for the communal kitchen at Uni. Whichever jester said money can't buy you love had clearly never experienced frigets. Soooooo cool.
