Welcome to Candyland, you'd have to agree that these levels are SWEET (see what I did there?).
Ups And Downs
Do the first section quickly so that you can get onto the brown lift before it goes back up, saving you from having to wait. Don't hang around waiting for the pink lift to drop, it's safe enough to just roll over the edge.

Get onto the pick elevator while in its upper position. Roll over the edge with a small amount of speed, time it right and you'll collect the green crystal in the air.
You'll want a fast ball that doesn't bounce too much here, I've opted for the car.

It's on the near side of the rainbow colored half-pipe. You will naturally land further in, so turn around.
Round And Round
Time is pretty tight for this one so you don't want to hang about. If you haven't unlocked any fast marbles yet you'll have to settle for silver or bronze and come back to it later. Otherwise, bring on Charlie! There's a crystal on the left turn as you start, if you take it fast enough you can roll right over the gap, saving time. Most of the other crystals are up on ramps on the edge of each ring. On the first ring there are 2 ramps, on the brown ring there are 3.

There's a moving platform between the second and third rings, ride it down to the bottom and collect the green crystal.

This one's straight forward enough, just watch out for the big hole. Again, a fast marble that doesn't bounce much will benefit you here.

Those sneaky level designers. Roll backwards at the start of the level, once you're over the edge you'll be right by the green crystal.
The first section has you travelling left, take the platforms quickly but slow down to drop into the cannons. After the downward slants, roll upwards into the wall to bring the sliding platform near. Get on and move it back down, drop into the hole to finish.

You can reach the green crystal using the sliding platform, move it all the way down.
Go from one side to the other on each ring, taking the chutes down until you see the pancake thing hovering below, then drop down slowly.

It's on top of the pancake at the end, roll onto it from the ring above.
Fly To Tomorrow
There are sections of the track missing in this level, but as long as you approach with enough speed the ramps will get you over. Take the final drop gently so as not to bounce out of control.

It's right at the end of the level, take the drop onto the donut (pancake?) slowly to collect it.
Lost In A Maze
You'll want to get these crystals in an organised way so you don't waste time in the maze. See the video for my method.

If you take the path described above you can't miss the green crystal, it's on the thin section of the home straight.
Talk about a short level. Head down the roll-in into the funnel, on landing watch out for holes. Head to the right and into the tube. That'll do pig.

Head down the slope at the beginning but don't roll straight over the edge. Instead slow yourself down and head upwards over the side, where you'll collect the green crystal in the air.
Jagged Ice Rink
Too much speed can be detrimental on this stage, particularly on the icy part so I've gone with the Candy ball.

The green crystal is near the start, on the 4th slant head over the edge on the right side to collect it.
