The Wooden Kendama Toy: A Traditional Game to Stimulate Children’s Coordination

The wooden Kendama is much more than a simple toy. It creates a real enthusiasm, especially in Japan, where it is considered as an art form in its own right. Kendama practitioners perform complex and artistic tricks, and there are even Kendama competitions worldwide, including in the United States.

This traditional Japanese wooden game is not limited to children. It is also used by the elderly or in rehabilitation following an accident to improve their motor skills and coordination.

The Kendama consists of three parts: a ball connected to the Kendama by a string or cord, and a wooden spike called the Ken, which means “sword” in Japanese. The goal of the game is to successfully land the ball in one of these parts or on the Ken.

  • Composition: Wood, string
  • Size of the Japanese toy: 18 x 6 x 3cm
  • Package includes: one ball and the Ken (identical to the image)
