Marble League 2017

Playing with marbles is an activity that both children and adults can enjoy. Like so many other indoor games, kids can play with marbles inside or outside the house.

Bored kids? Try these indoor games to make staying at home the fun-est!

If you are just becoming familiar with Marble Runs, specifically Jelle’s Marble Runs, then get ready for a wild ride!

Jelle’s Marble Runs are, in simple words, a bunch of marbles racing against each other! But it’s not as simple as that: there are marble race tracks, different teams, events, challenges and lots of more exciting things.

The best part is that you can support your favorite team from the comfort of your house! Marble races are completely free you and your little ones can watch it on YouTube.

The Marble League 2017

 The Marble League 2017 was the second edition of the Marble League, which consisted of 16 teams and 12 events.

What made special this season was that it included fan cheering sections in the stands.

This edition is special because it featured “fans” cheering for their favorite marble teams for the first time!

This was also the first Marble League season that injured a marble, Momomomo, in Event 3, Fidget Spinner Collision.

In the Fidget Spinner Collision, both teams of marbles roll towards each other from opposite ends of the arena, but the cool part is that they add fidget spinners in each corner to make it all more exciting.

Marble League 2017 was filled with exciting new tracks and fun races!

This season featured an underwater track! Four marbles from different teams rolled down a track submerged in water.

One of my favorite ones is the long jump: this track has a long ramp that the marbles use to build up speed for their jump, and then jump into sand (yes, just like we do at the Olympics!) The further the marble jumps, the higher in the rankings they finish.

With as much fun as my kids were having watching the Marble League, I knew hours of fun could come from a kit of their very own!

I am a believer in the power of STEM games. So, I did a bit of research on what options were out there!

It was very important to me that I found an option that I felt would be safe for my littlest one.
