Adopt a Marble

Each marble has been fully charged with inspiration directly from MUSE hotspots around the world. Each marble breed is different; with different behavioural traits and ways of inspiring their owners.

You can peruse our adoption pages to read a little about each breed of marble and the ways they inspire. Occasionally we will have special marbles available for adoption; unique cross-breeds and special marbles.

Keep your eye out for these one-of-a-kind marbles, but every marble is individual - unique in its own way and ready to join you to help inspire!

Please note, UNBOSI never takes marbles from the wild, and holds the RSPCM standards for breeding programmes. All of our marbles are free range, happily socialised and ready to go to their forever homes.

Marble care information:

Name them:

Marbles will bond with you like any other pet. Give them a name and with the right training, they may even come when they’re called!

Feed them:

Marbles don’t eat like humans do - they get their nourishment from ideas! So take your marble with you to inspiring places, pop it next to you while you write or draw, and make sure that it stays well fed with interesting experiences

Socialise them:

Most marbles are highly sociable and usually live together in herds. It is wise when adopting marbles to consider getting more than one, as they will tend to get lonely if kept on their own. While there are a few exceptions to this, ALL marbles love human contact and should be kept in close contact with their owners. Get your marbles out and show them to your friends! Play some games together - we have some excellent suggestions here.

Cuddle them:

Marbles love contact, so keep them close! Don’t leave them on a shelf at home, keep them in your pocket so they can be with you to keep you inspired!

Don’t lose them:

That’s the most important rule of marble care! Make sure you don’t lose your marbles!

There are a range of marbles available for adoption - different breeds can be viewed in our FREE PDF of A Field Guide to Marbles by UNBOSI behavioural marbleologist Caitlin Strongarm.

 

You can adopt a single marble for £1 (plus postage) or a herd of 10 marbles in an UNBOSI marble bag for £6.66 (plus postage).

Once you process your payment for marble adoption, email admin@unbosi.org with your order information and which marble breed/s you would like to adopt. If you are unsure of the right marble for you, simply email us with what kind of inspiration you are seeking and our behavioural marbleologist team will advise you on the right marbles for you.

If you do not email your marble selection you will be sent one of our many marbles ready for inspirational adoption.
