What the heck is a kendama I can’t find info anywhere! I don’t know what it does.

They’re very dangerous. If you find one on the sidewalk, leave it alone, don’t touch it. Call the authorities and stay far away from it.

This should explain it :wink:


Aaah thank you. I was wondering. That video was hilarious.

LOL! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: good one!

Kendama will lead you down the road of obsession and addiction to rival that of the yo-yo :o

What did I just watch?

Don’t fall for the kendama’s lies, you are better than the kendama

the kendama is interesting but I don’t have one because I only want to focus on yoyos that is also why I don’t get a spin top.If you are interested in them you can get a clyw kendama from yoyoexpert for$30 or you can get a mini kendama for$40 but remember once you pick one up it is hard to stop :wink:

or you can get one of the much cheaper options, like this one - $^^^

-sorry, i messed up that post :stuck_out_tongue:

only 10 bucks

I don’t like plastic yoyos spin tops or kendama but that is aa good deal for a starter

No. I absolutely disagree. This product breaks easily and is not durable. Only reason mine hasn’t broken is because I stopped playing it. I’ve seen 10 others broken right under the cross-section and simply won’t glue back together. I may try epoxy resin on one this weekend on a broken one i have laying around if I kept it. I do think I trashed it.

If you’re not sure, get a low-cost Kendama USA model or even the Yomega Pro Kendama(it’s wood). Duncan has a Kendama.

Yhea, I only recommended that because I saw the price tag for a beginner model, but i havent played one. I have a Kendama USA model (one of the cheaper ones) and that thing has taken some serious abuse :smiley:

The one I’m gonna try to repair(unless I threw it away) was played with for less than 10 minutes before breaking, and it was via very light-duty play.

Granted, my kids have a reputation for destroying things, but there was no destruction attempts involved.

I’d say any sub-$20 Kendama is a great starter. That’s roughly the same price point I use for newbies and yoyos. My 3 girls all have kendamas, but none play with them. My boy, the one who yoyos, has a few kendamas. The Tribute Classic is an ideal starter.

Branching out makes your yoyoing more unique. I do almost everything from juggling, to spintops, to kendama, and it makes a great improvement on my yoyoing. In fact, I usually do a different skill toy before my freestyles, and it helps me land all of my tricks better.
Don’t limit yourself to one thing.

yhea i think thats the one i have :smiley: But now i know to not recommend that one anymore!
