6 TYPES OF UNIQUE KENDAMA
Cat's Tongue Boy Kendama
|The boy's cat tongue is a special characteristic of this kendama. It is easiest to catch the red ring on the nose, try catching it on the chin or tongue! That's a challenge! |
|This serpent kendama is most popular of them all! It is NO.1! Look at the pretty dotted serpent, each dot is a different sized hole. Let the little red ball(30mm) bounce from hole to hole. |
|A little martian trys to catch the red ring! Hands, feet or head ! go ahead try to catch the ring! Beginners in the kendama universe, I challenge you! |
Hop! Step! Jump! Kendama
|Close your eyes! Let the red ball (50mm) hop!step!jump!into one of 3 holes. This kendama is for beginners too! |
Noodle Scoop Kendama
|Beautifully coloured pegs make this kendama fun and easy. Just catch the red ring on the pink peg! How many points is the pink peg worth? Give each colour a different number of points. Everyone try your hand! Who will get the most points! Then again, points or no points! Just think of all the ways can you play with this kendama? || |
|Japanese hiragana alphabet kendama. From the many phonetic characters, I selected 2 for this kendama. Start off holding either the "mei" or the "shi". It is easiest to hold the "shi"(the long L shape)and hook the "mei". You did it! Look the kendama says "meishi". It means mealtime (Let's eat!) in Japanese! |
|Canadian kendama champion? All the way from Canada just to play with Ginga Kobo Toys's kendama?! |
|●TOYS & THE POWER OF CREATIVITY |
|"It's just a toy, but it is a toy." |
"Just playing" or "just a toy" are thoughts which create a light fun feeling nuturing communicative powers held within the family. When people are too stressed, too busy, it is difficult to have fun, the idea of "playing together" slips away.Yet when there is plenty of time or when one makes the time to play with children a heart to heart closeness develops, a special relationaship begins. It is easy to see what a great influence toys and "play, "having fun", has on everyone. Parents and their children will find "play time" very nourishing for the mind and heart.
