What’s going on with these marbles? This series of clips features handcrafted wooden marble toys mingling with some gravity-defying scenes. There are no animations, but there are clearly a few slow-motion and reverse runs in the mix. It’s a mesmerizing Murmiland Marble Run Fun.

Murmiland is a one-of-a-kind exhibit of over 60 hands-on marble runs for all ages in Hanover, Germany, a passion project business created (and mostly handmade) by Ortwin Grüttner. And the marble toys are delightful: Wooden snails, elephants, fish, wobbly gravity coasters, and at least one hungry Murmi, one of the exhibit’s many fairy tale creatures.
