Do kids even play with marbles these days?

I don't recall Ambi Jr ever having any marbles, and for that matter I don't remember myself being all that interested in them when I was but a sprout. Regardless, people still collect them. all of these examples went for at least hundreds of dollars, with some worth over a thousand dollars.

You can see many more at the Accidental Mysteries post Bumbos, Swirlys and a Chinese Birdcage: A Snapshot of Marbles, which includes some comments about marble collecting and also links the price each pictured amrnle fetched.
