Four win Japanese Kendama toy 9/20

Sponsored By: Kaleb Kendama 
Hosted By: Mom Loves 2 Read 
Kaleb Kendama brings the simple yet extremely fun Japanese cup and ball wooden toy directly to you. Made of solid wood and will come as pictured with your choice of painted ball.

 The Kendama is a traditional Japanese toy which consists of the “Ken” (handle) and the “Tama” (ball),  which is connected by a string. The two extending sides of the kendama are concave cups, with one end smaller than the other. The larger cup is called the "big cup") and the smaller cup is called the kozara ("small cup"). 

There is another, even smaller cup, called the chÅ«zara  ("center cup") at the bottom of the ken. The Kendama tricks are done by variations of juggling the ball in the three cups spiking the ball with the Ken spike, and balancing both in new creative ways. Mastering the Kendama takes practice, focus, patience, and creativity. 

The Kendama is anything but a boring toss and catch game … and it goes to show that sometimes the simplest games (sans lights, batteries, and sound effects) provide the most fun of all. Here’s to hundreds more years of good old fashioned fun with the Kendama.

I like the Soccer Ball & Blue Ocean Marble Kendama
This would be for my grandson
I think it might be hard at first
I have never heard of them before
I learned they have a big assortment to choose from on their site

I learned they have a large number of Kendames that you can sort by color. This is a new game for me, although I have seen similar ones from other cultures. If I won, this would be for our family. I like the Blue Ocean Marble Kendame - Full.
