No matter who in your family has lost his marbles, you'll have fun finding them again with these wooden marble runs. There are plenty of DIY and plastic versions of these toys, but we love the aesthetic and stability of the wooden versions. We've rounded up 5 of our favorites for you to peruse.
• Cuboro Marble Run: A beautiful set from Swiss company Cuboro that has channels as well as twisting and turning tunnels.
• Marble Run with Lift at Wildwood Toys: This simple run has an elevator that raises the wooden marbles to the top and drops them into the track.
• Sounding Marble Tree at Ecoseek: Ecofriendly and musical, the "tree" drops a marble down onto differently-sized wooden "leaves," creating different tones as it falls.
• Marble Run by Quadrilla: Quadrilla makes the granddaddy of marble runs, with lots of expansion packs and solid wood blocks.
• HABA Skyscraper Marble Run at Holz Toys: HABA's skyscraper makes the marble run a sleek, tall building where marbles fall down floor by floor.
