Children have been playing with marbles since time immemorial. Their enchanting texture, sound and patterns have entered into children’s games from Ancient Egypt to the Roman Empire and beyond. The ubiquity of these little glass balls inspired Manu and Claire to create Billes & Co, a French brand that presents marbles in a new and unique way. The marbles are sourced from all over the world in myriad colours and arranged thematically into boxes corresponding to different “universes”. Each Billes & Co. box of marbles is a work of art in itself, hand painted by Manu in their French workshop. The marble boxes are made with all natural and recycled materials, presenting an eco-friendly toy that will inspire children’s imagination and develop their motor skills. If you’re looking for kids’ toys, these Billes & Co. boxes are the perfect gift for children as well as a unique home décor piece.
