This is the first time I have ever heard or played with a Japanese Kendama Toy. It sounds and looks easy but takes a lot of practice. It is nice to have a toy in the house that isnt't a video game or something related to a cell phone. My kids are older but we all tried for hours to do it. We have not yet succeed yet but someone always is trying everyday.
It is made well strong wood and also the ball is not plastic. We are in a competition who does it first !! Even my husband has been trying. The object is to get the ball to sit on top of the handle. I think this a great toy for eye and hand coordination. Even for better concentration an focusing. I received this product complimentary in exchange for my unbiased review and opinion.
