Kendama is a traditional wooden toy consisting of a wooden center spike with two different-sized cups on either side of the spike, with a smaller cup at the base. A wooden ball is connected to the center piece with a string.
Like a classic ball-and cup game, the object of kendama is to master catching the ball in one of the three cups, before catching it on its top spike. It has become something of a craze in the last few years!
Kendama is excellent for developing eye-hand coordination, focus, balance, and patience. It encourages middle-schoolers and older kids to get away from screens and video games as they practice learning new tricks and reaching new levels of skill.
Available in your choice of three vibrant colors: Red, Orange or Blue. The durable translucent stain resists chipping and allows the beauty of the natural wood grain to show through.
The Kendama Tribute is from Kendama USA, the company responsible for introducing this Japanese game to the USA, and producers of the highest quality kendamas, manufactured to exacting standards of balance.
