Astronomy buffs will love this solar system marble collection

I’m not really into astronomy, but I love marbles and this collection from WestEndCollectables has me searching for my credit card. The collection includes 11 marbles that represent the planets in our solar system.

Each marble represents a planet including the Moon, Mars, and Earth which shows the continents, oceans, and rivers.

The entire set of marbles is not sized accurately, but it’s a cool collection for anyone who loves both marbles and space.

The Solar System Orrery Globe Marble Collection is priced at $46.57 on the WestEndCollectables Etsy shop. Visit their store to order and be sure to check out their other marbles.

  2. It would be nice if they were somewhat scaled: Earth should be bigger than Mars, Saturn should be bigger than Earth, and Jupiter should be bigger than all of planets.

  3. They included Pluto. Pluto is not a planet. If you do include Pluto, they should also include marbles for the sever other Kuiper belt objects. I will not add a comment aboujt $46.75 ($4.25 each) for 11 marbles.

  4. Despite the size problems John mentioned, I couldn’t resist getting them for my astronomy buff for Christmas. They are shipping from the UK, and they provided no tracking info, so I have no idea when I can expect to get them.
