Shootin' Marbles Set- Monday Moring Review & Giveaway



Spring is marble shooting season!  With that said..... I am so excited to bring you today's review and giveaway from  Marble Maam's Medley ! We were sent this set of marbles to play with, review and learn about.

The Review
  
The Shooter Set includes:
  • 28 regular 9/16" & 5/8" marbles
  • 2 'Flat' marbles for markers
  • 5 'Lustre' & 'Frostie' marbles
  • 2 regulation size 3/4" shooters
  • 2 'Pee Wees'
  • 1 'Boulder' 7/8" marble
  • 1 'Masher' 1 3/8" marble
  • a cloth bag with ribbon drawstring
  • 32 page booklet of 22 different games to play with marbles that also gives you a brief History of marbles and how they are made. 

     The Marble Maam's marbles are made out of recycled glass and they are beautiful!  I was in love with them from the second we opened the bag.  They are so pretty I think it would be fun to just collect lots of these beautiful marbles. Check out some of the other gorgeous marbles they make at TheMarbleMan.com.
      Here are the grits sorting their new marbles and trying to guess the nicknames for each. There is a two page list of nicknames in the handbook included with the set.


Sue at Marble Maam's Medley wrote the great little handbook that comes with the set. It is chock full  of great information!
It includes:
  • a brief history of marbles and how they are made
  • the nicknames
  • information about The National Marbles Tournament
  • instructions on how to hold and shoot marbles
  • instructions for 22  different marble games. 
I had no idea there were so many different marble games! 

We have had a great time learning about marbles and how to play them.  


      I did not realize how much there was to learn about marbles! We actually turned this into a mini unit study and had a blast doing it.  You can read about our Marble Unit Study here.
     There is also a National Tournament every year.  Here is what the brochure I was sent says about it, "The tourney is held at the Seashore of Wildwood, N.J. (right in my home state!) It is usually during the last week of June and lasts for  days.  Awards are presented include numerous trophies and a $2,000 scholarship presented to each of the winners in the girls and boys divisions. In addition to playing marbles, all the champions are treated to the fabulous boardwalk rides and amusements, in addition to other planned social activities." Sounds like a lot of fun! You can learn more about it at The National Marbles Tournament Homepage.

 Buy It: The Shooting Marbles Set is only $9.00 plus shipping.
