I can't do much with those videos... The rectangle is definitely a left-right vs. right-left but that seems to obvious. I can't see you open the round one to figure out how that's done. Very creative though. Have you mass-produced these or are they one-offs?

When we give gift cards as gifts we often put them in one of these "puzzles" you have to solve before you can release the card. One was just a plastic marble maze, but one was an electronic multiple-choice test where you had to answer all the questions correctly to open it. Good for some laughs.

they are my own creations, yes.
i guess it helps to know too that hundreds of people have tried 'hands-on' to open these and have not been able to.
i did a magic thing at the local renfaires.

remember, hundreds of renfaire-goers have handled these and tried everything short of a hammer to open the one or to get the marble out of the other. the marble box is solid oak, 1/2" thick top, bottom and side pieces....it HAS to be that thick of wood to withstand all the tugging, twisting and pulling by hundreds of victi...i mean, spectators.
