Are you playing Kendama yet?
Kendama is a traditional Japanese toy involving a ball on a string and a … stick/sword with cups and a spike.
It’s not that different from other stick/cup games I played as a kid.
Kendama has recently become the rage among kids, teens, and adults in the United States.
The basic game is catching the ball in one of the three cups on the stick and/or with the spike.
And, there’s also zillions of tricks you can learn ranging from beginner to advanced.
I AM A KENDAMA BEGINNER!!
Everyone in my family has a Kendama including girlfriends/boyfriends/significant others.
We’re going to see who can become the reigning Kendama champion of our group.
(Hint: It won’t be me … I’m trying to do Kendama left-handed due to my bum arm. I’m right handed!)
Kendamas are surprisingly addictive no matter what your age is.
(Don’t say I didn’t warn you!)
They’re made in varying colors.
Many people like to collect the different colors.
Some Kendamas are made from expensive woods and/or with fancy designs.
I’m a fan of the inexpensive beginning Kendamas.
I don’t need to worry about damaging or losing an expensive Kendama.
If you haven’t yet tried/played, I’d encourage you to consider it.
And yes, it’s also challenging.
I think it’s probably good for my brain and hand/eye coordination?
You’re never too old for toys, right?
