(I think my husband and I met Mr. Hoffman at the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Festival a couple of years ago. I was buying fruit and nut trees and I recall we stopped awhile at their booth, then went back to the tree sellers and returned with a couple of trees for Mrs. Hoffman before they were all sold. If my memory is correct, then Hello, Hoffmans!). We bought the marble maze, thinking the grandchildren (4 and 6) would like it. We were wrong: they LOVED it! They were fascinated with all the different shapes that could be made (PRO TIP: take a picture of the instructions and email it to yourself so that you can re-print it if you lose it, and also tape them to the base of the maze for easy access). The grandchildren’s love of this game led us to conversations about things we enjoyed as a kid, which I how I ended up on the floor teaching them how to shoot marbles.
