Marble TrackMy birthday present for Michi arrived today. It's of course a geek toy that other people would call a toy for children :) , a very cool marble track made from wooden cubes of uniform size with holes drilled into them such that you can make the marbles run on top or inside the cubes.

To the left you see our first track, which we fondly named "Castle Marble" :) (Click picture for bigger version) There's of course lots of expansion sets with cool new cubes that can make the marbles jump and whatnot. This is going to get so expensive :)

OMG! a friend of mine had this (or at least something very similar) when we were kids. Were we ‘geeks in training’ then? :P somedays, I still miss my tinkertoys…

Yes. Definitely geeks in training. If you want your kids to grow up to be geeks give them Lego and old school construction toys. Oh and boardgames :)
