Making Her Even Better

I gave my Kendama to my granddaughter who is a very good lacross player hoping it will make her eye-hand coordination even better. I am anxiously awaiting how she plays this season.

Japanese Skill Toy

Traditional Japanese skill toy similar to the classic cup and ball game. Catch one object with another using simple and complex tricks. Great for beginners and advanced players.


Jeremy Stephenson is bringing a classic toss-and-catch game to a global audience, and kids of all ages are joining the craze.

A Kendama is a traditional Japanese toy that consists of a ball attached by a string to a spiked base, which holds cups of different sizes. The goal is to catch the ball in one of the cups, or spike the ball by landing its hole on the pointed end. Mastering the Kendama takes practice, focus, patience, and creativity. Once you’ve learned the basic moves, you can try dozens of complex catching, juggling, and balancing tricks.

Jeremy discovered the Kendama in 2006 while touring in Japan, where he saw people playing with the toys while they waited at train stations and walked around the city. Seeing people’s enthusiasm for the game inspired Jeremy and his team to start KendamaUSA, which is dedicated to expanding Kendama’s playing field.

For beginners and seasoned masters, a Kendama strengthens hand-eye coordination, balance, and reflexes. It’s a great way to keep active with a handheld toy that’s NOT electronic. more Their Story
