What It IsIt may be hard for anyone who's not grown up to remember, but marbles-yes, basic marbles-have had several heydays over the years. From movie stars on the lot of United Artists to schoolyards across the country, playing marbles was a hot activity. (Ask grandma or grandpa!)
Well, guess what? Maybe you won't have to ask because collectible marbles are coming back in a big way. Get ready for the biggest little collectible marbles ever-MARBS. Each MARBS marble is individually numbered, and features the name and image of popular characters from some of the world's biggest entertainment brands, beginning with Star Wars and the entire world of Marvel Universe. The line of Star Wars MARBS features characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as classic characters such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Han Solo, Yoda, and more. Special limited edition and oversized MARBS will feature Limited Platinum Han Solo and Darth Vader vs. Obi-Wan Kenobi. Marvel MARBS will feature classic and modern characters such as Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Wolverine, Mystique, and more. Marbles have never been this cool!
Boys will love that MARBS are something different from the standard collectible fare. With different-sized marbles, limited-edition versions, and high-quality character art embedded within the marble, MARBS offer kids the chance to connect with and collect favorite characters in a cool, new way. There are a variety of limited edition and “chaser” MARBS that will keep kids actively involved in this play. We're predicting that these will be very hot with anyone who loves Star Wars.
