Little marble chaser toy






This is the latest marble chaser Galen finished making and I just painted. It's a little marble chaser compared to the much bigger ones he's used to making. It's table top size and small enough to put on a table or desk, or put away on a shelf in a closet. Children love playing with them, and it's also a good thing to have around for the grandchildren.


You can find this on my etsy shop whimsytwo.


Below is a short video to show you how it works.

That's so fun! A perfect little size for little hands...or big ones! :)
I love the way you've painted it too!

I love this! If I weren't afraid of little hands stuffing the marbles into mouths.....it would have already been in my shopping cart. This would be perfect just sitting on a side table in my living room. I know some 20 somethings that wouldn't be able to resist :-)

Yes, this is not a toy to have around babies or toddlers. Children that are a little bit older love them.

I love those toys, though I'vs only seen plastic mass-produced ones before. You did a great job.

Donna, those are really cute. I can see kids would have a lot of fun with this thing.
