Remember those ball and cup games from your childhood - when you'd toss the ball up to make it land in the cup... Kendama is like that, but at least three times the fun. It's a traditional Japanese toss game that will throw you for ally-loop!
With a quick flip of your wrist, you'll get the ball to land on cupped one side of Kendama. Let the ball drop- another quick flip of the wrist and it's back up, only this time on the opposite side.
You're getting good now. When you're feeling ultra confident, it's time to really put yourself out there. Can you catch the ball's hollow space on the spike? Yes, my friend. It can be done.
Kendama is attention-getting fun, so just let go of that notion of keeping it to yourself. Everyone wants to take a shot at Kendama.
Once you master the basic maneuvers, there are numerous advanced tricks that you'll really flip over!

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
