Kendama is a Japanese skill-toy.
The origins of kendama are disputed, but it is generally believed to have originated during the 17th or 18th century. Kendama is used to express creativity. Use the ken (wooden stick), the tama (ball), and the string to create tricks. It strengthens hand eye coordination, balance, and reflex. Kendama also helps practice patience, persistence, and mindfulness. It can be played by young and old alike.
The size and materials used to create kendamas now vary as they are offered in jumbo and mini sizes, and have been created out of plastic, metal, and nylon. There are now kendama competitions held in countries all over the world, the biggest competition being the annual Kendama World Cup in Japan.
