The kendama (けん玉, "sword [and] ball") is a traditional Japanese skill toy.

It consists of a handle (ken) and a ball (tama), where both parts are connected by a string.

The ken has three cups and a spike which fits into the hole of the tama.

The kendama is a variant of the classic cup-and-ball game.


The principle of these toys are the same: catching one object with another,

where both are joined by a string.

Great to develop coodination skill for both children and adults.


Ideal for Japanese language lessons and Cultural Day.
