Toys are meant to be touched and played with, but there’s one toy that kids (and grownups) are happy to just stare at for hours on end: marble mazes. But Marbleocity’s laser-cut wooden marble runs aren’t completely hands-off; they arrive ‘all assembly required’, making them even more fun.
Jelle Bakker’s hobby is making huge marble runs and rolling ball sculptures. One of his creations is the “Marblelanche”: An epic marble machine with obstacle tracks that fits 1000 marbles.

In super-slow motion?
