Beautiful Japanese Bamboo Toy :: Kendama

If you are familiar with a yo-yo it is the same basic concept for a Kendama. The Kendama is a handmade wooden toy. The one I received for review was beautifully made from Bamboo Wood and could easily be a coffee table conversation piece. My daughters (9 and 12) were intrigued. Giving it a try we could easily see the fun and challenge presented. I also have to mention my concern for safety since you are basically throwing around a wooden ball attached to a string. If you miss making connection with the Kendama you are in harms way of being hit by the wooden ball - which did happen, and it kind of hurts. Did it stop them from trying it? No. They continued on and actually made contact. 

There is definitely a learning curve with the use of a Kendama. Want to see the potential for these toys? Take a look at this video.

From the company:

  • The Nordic Kendama is a fun Japanese game toy for ages 6 and up. It will only take you a few hours to learn, but a lifetime to master. The Nordic Kendama is 100% Eco Friendly Natural Bamboo Wood and very durable.
  • Throw the ball in the air, and catch it again. Hundreds of tricks to learn.
  • This toy will not only be fun to learn, but also train your hand and eye coordination skills. 
  • The popularity of these Kendamas are growing every day.
