Quincunx WD-7 Tested: Large Galton Board Math Toy ✌ Gadgetify

The WD-7 has a movable funnel and 3 gates which hold the bead distributions in place. It also has a plexiglass cover, so you won’t use the beads. You can lock the gates in place or simply allow the beads to fall from the top to the bottom. The Quincunx also has a kickstand to hold the device as you use it. It is heavy enough to stay put but it’s also built like a tank.
