This is a roadside attraction tucked away in Bonner Springs, Kansas. It's easy to find (right on K-32 in downtown Bonner Springs) but you need to be watching for it. It backs up to the railroad tracks.

Very informative for Scout groups - they can earn a marble beltloop. Demos on Saturdays showing the art of marble making. Lots of history. Parents, beware! Lots of toys and other kid-stuff available for sale. The best buy of the store is to pick up a tube or small plastic bottle and fill with marbles of your choice.

Some of the aisles are tight (stuff is packed on both sides), so not really too wheel-chair friendly.

Minutes from the Speedway in KC, KS is this fascinating little gem. They got marbles, that is for sure. In lots of sizes and prices. They demonstrate how a marble is hand made. It also offers a wide variety of unusual gifts and games I have never seen before. Many funny gifts too if you have a good sense of humor. Owner and staff were very friendly and hospitable.

The looks of the outside deceive the eye. We almost chose not to go in, but we did and it is absolutely delightful. They have toys for all ages and things that you might not find elsewhere. They have beautiful glass works as well. It was so fun and interesting to watch how they make a handmade marble. The people are so friendly. This is a real treat whenever you are in the area. My grandkids would have stayed all day.

An absolutely fantastic place to visit, especially with kids! Even without kids though it is a great place to go and soak up the nostalgia. Seeing how a marble is handmade was fascinating, but that wasn't the real joy of the place. What is truly the main attraction are all the games and toys they have from yesterday's youth. You will find Lincoln Logs, Cap Guns, Car Bingo, Yo-Yo's, Books, Marbles, and all kinds of other things. So much good stuff and brings me back to my younger years. My kids loved it. My daughter and I have been playing marbles lately. She had a blast there. I would highly recommend the store, but watch out, you'll be buying way to many things before you know it!

We went just to see something off the beaten path. Kids loved it! If you have never seen a 4 inch diameter marble with an aquarium inside..you have to go! Amazing and artistic. Tours of the factory and a shop where you can purchase any kind of marble you might want...prices are $1-$500 or so...
