Product Information

Meshi Kendama

wooden toys

What do you think of when you hear "Kendama"? Intense focus? Incredible sense of accomplishment? Rigourous leg and back exercise?
This sort of game is best led by an adult who sets the rules of what might be a very heated competition. Let Grampa and Gramma help form a family "kendama" club! Set the red ball in it's holder, hook the red ring, link the characters together (Japanese Hiragana "Meshi"). Challenge yourself with Meshiken! There are so many ways to play with a "Kendama", so many different levels of difficulty.

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!


Serpent Kendama
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.


Martian Kendama
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?

Meshi 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!

"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.

子供へのプレゼントに(まだ渡していません)。書けるひらがなの数も増えてきて、文字への関心も高いので、見るだけでも彼の心をグイッとつかむのでは?もちろんケン玉としても。 「めし」でケン玉だなんて!こういう発想も大好きです。

7歳の息子のクリスマスプレゼントに購入しました。まだ実物は見ていません。 難易度がどれ位なのか、気に入ってくれるのかわからないので星4つです。 ものすごくインパクトある商品で、大人のプレゼントの方がいいかも知れませんね。 家族で楽しめたらと思っています。 他のバージョンもあるといいなぁと思います。
