The Toysmith Bamboo Kendama is a modern take on classic children's toy. This ancient Japanese game of skill involves tossing a small wooden ball and catching it in one of the kendama's shallow cups. The kendama's authentic bamboo construction is both lightweight and very durable. A string tether anchors the kendama's wooden ball to the handle for safety. At 7 inches long, the kendama is designed with small hands in mind. Recommended for ages 6 years and up.
